Dexter Fowler Injury Update: Rockies CF Has Sprained Ankle

Colorado Rockies centerfielder Dexter Fowler was forced to leave Wednesday night's game against the New York Mets with an apparent ankle injury in the fourth inning.

Troy Renck of the Denver Post took to Twitter to report that Fowler sprained his right ankle on the play in question:

Renck added that it looked worse than when Fowler turned his ankle on a stair in the dugout in Miami back in May.

The Rockies replaced Fowler in the lineup with infelder Jordan Pacheco, moving Tyler Colvin to centerfield.

Colorado currently leads 3-1 in the bottom of the seventh inning, after scoring two runs in the top of the seventh to break a 1-1 tie.
