Ian Stewart sprained knee in collision with Carlos Gonzalez
Ian Stewart is expected to be out for 5-6 days with what Thomas Harding of MLB.com calls “a low-grade sprain of the medial collateral ligament in his right knee.”
Stewart suffered the injury Saturday during an outfield collision with Carlos Gonzalez, who escaped with merely a bruised right shin.
He initially didn’t think much of the collision, but Stewart had soreness once he got home Saturday night and got checked out by the Rockies’ training staff Sunday morning.
Despite facing some time on the sidelines, Stewart seems happy that he and Gonzalez avoided anything more serious:
Gonzalez will sit out today’s game, but should be back in the lineup before Stewart.
