Hawpe day-to-day with lacerated pinkie
Injury will keep outfielder from participating in Classic
TEMPE, Ariz. -- Rockies outfielder Brad Hawpe left Friday afternoon's game with the Angels with a lacerated left pinkie finger, suffered in the first inning when the finger came in contact with an opponent's cleat while he was sliding into second base.
The Rockies on Friday said that Hawpe is "day-to-day." Manager Clint Hurdle said he wasn't sure exactly how the injury happened, because Hawpe was taking himself out of the game before Hurdle had emerged from the dugout to see about him.
