Eric Young Jr. Injury: Rockies OF Leaves Game With Muscle Strain

Colorado Rockies outfielder Eric Young Jr. left Sunday's game against the Miami Marlins after the first inning with a left intercostal muscle strain, the team announced during the game. Young began the game in left field and then struck out in the bottom of the first inning. This potentially could require a move to the disabled list.

The Rockies replaced Young with Andrew Brown, who was recalled on Sunday morning to take the place of Michael Cuddyer. A re-aggravated oblique strain put Cuddyer on the disabled list just a couple of days after he came off it.

Young has been an offensive spark plug for the Rockies lately and was hitting .318/.379/.451 before Sunday's contest. Three of his four home runs this season have come in August.
