Embree better than expected
Anyone who saw or heard Rockies left-hander Alan Embree’s right fibia pop when hit by a line drive from the braves’ Martin Pardo, then heard the diagnosis, figured Embree was gone for the season, no discussion.
Well, maybe not. Rockies manager Jim Tracy said Embree will be walking around, without a cast, within three days. And …
“We won’t rule anything out,” Tracy said. “I don’t want to say anything any more specific other than the fact that Keith [Dugger, the Rockies’ head athletic trainer] mentioned something to me about September. Let’s take it a day at a time, but that’s a fairly miraculous thing for me to be saying this afternoon after what we saw take place last night.”
Righty Matt Belisle is replacing Embree.
