Publish date:

Colorado Rockies centerfielder Dexter Fowler left Wednesday's game against the New York Mets in the top of the fourth inning after apparently severely turning his ankle at second base. Troy Renck of the Denver Post has details:

After a leadoff single by Jonathan Herrera, Fowler singled to right and injured himself taking second on the throw to third. He was replaced by pinch-runner Jordan Pacheco, who stayed in the game to play first base, with Tyler Colvin going from first to center.

Fowler is hitting .306 with 12 home runs, 44 RBIs and a robust .891 OPS.
