Wilin Rosario Injury Update: Rockies Catcher Day-To-Day With Left Ankle Sprain

Colorado Rockies rookie catcher Wilin Rosario has been solid behind the plate in 2012, so everyone held their breath when he was forced to leave Friday night's game against the San Diego Padres after rolling his ankle while trying to block an errant pitch from Drew Pomeranz in the second inning. Luckily, Rosario only suffered a low-grade ankle sprain, according to Thomas Harding of MLB.com, and the 23-year-old backstop is listed as day-to-day.

Rosario has posted a .254/.290/.532 line over 214 plate appearances in 2012. Veteran catcher Ramon Hernandez replaced Rosario on Friday night and will likely fill in until the young prospect is cleared to start again.

Could the rookie catcher return for the debut of new Rockies pitcher Jonathan Sanchez on Monday?
