Rockies third base coach Rich Dauer was taken to an emergency room after getting struck on the bridge of his nose by a throw prior to Sunday night’s game against the Cardinals.
A team spokesman said Dauer was hurt during a double play drill by a throw from Chris Nelson. Infielders had been practicing double plays without making the relay before Nelson’s throw, so apparently someone was confused.
The Rockies had first base coach Glenallen Hill moved to third base to replace Dauer tonight. Catching coordinator Marv Foley took Hill’s spot.
Tigers reliever Al Alburquerque was injured Friday and left with a concussion after being hit by a ball in the outfield, so this makes it twice in three days that someone on the field has gotten hurt during batting practice.
