Rockies Pitcher To Miss Time

The Colorado Rockies will be without Tyler Kinley, as he has been placed on the 15-day injured list with an elbow injury. 

Kinley will certainly be missed while out. He's been extremely effective out of the bullpen, and the truth is in his statistics thus far. In 25 appearances, he has a 1-1 record and a spectacular 0.75 ERA. Thus, he will not be easy to replace while out. 

The Rockies are currently trying to get themselves back into the playoff picture, so losing Kinley is certainly not ideal. Here's to hoping that the reliever will be able to return as soon as this stint on the 15-day IL is over.
