Nelson, a first-round pick of Colorado back in 2004, is hitting .256/.324/.411 with five home runs, 23 RBI and a .735 OPS in 58 games with the Rockies this season. The 26-year-old has struggled at the plate recently, but has received regular playing time between second base and the hot corner over the past month.
We’ll pass along an update when more information is known.
UPDATE: The Rockies announced that Nelson is resting and will spend the night in the hospital.
