Dexter Fowler was able to avoid a trip to the disabled list after he was hit in the right hand by a pitch two weeks ago, but he might not be so lucky this time around.

According to Troy Renck of the Denver Post, Fowler was scheduled to go for an MRI on his right hand Thursday after he felt some discomfort during a swing on Tuesday. He missed some time with a bruised knuckle and sore fingers after he was hit by the pitch two weeks ago, but it’s not clear if this new injury is related.

The surprising Rockies lost Troy Tulowitzki to a rib fracture two weeks ago, so missing Fowler for an extended period of time would be another tough blow to their offense. The 27-year-old center fielder is batting .291/.390/.473 with 10 home runs, 26 RBI, and 12 stolen bases in 70 games this season.

    It’s almost safe to assume at this point that the healthiest team will win the NL west.

        Dex is a tough kid from Atlanta he will make it back just fine. Getting hit in the hand on that bunt has to still be hurting and he’s compensating in his swing. Hopefully no ligament damage and it’s just a tweak. Gotta play through pain sometimes but when it’s this early might be better to take off a couple more days if it’s nothing serious and wait for it to heal up.
