I know the season is almost over, but 2 players season has come to an end early. Geovany Soto and Tyler Colvin were said yesterday that they will be out for the remainder of the season. Here's why:
This goes under as a freak incident, but Tyler Colvin was hit by a broken bat yesterday and a splinter of the bat went right through his chest. He was sent to the hospital right away and is expected to be in the hospital for 2-3 days with a tube in his chest, to make him breath easier. He was bleeding pretty good, but was listed in "stable condition". Castillo is the one who was hitting and the one who's bat broke and hit Colvin. There was a chance he could of die but he got lucky that it not go too far, but it did go pretty far. I hope for the best! It's sad how his rookie season went pretty well and he can't finish it on a positive not. But, it's baseball and this happens.
We learned yesterday that Soto's season has come to an end because he's getting shoulder surgery on his arm today. It's a minor shoulder surgery and he will be ready in 3 months. In time for spring training. Now we will see Hill (ugh) and Castillo behind the plate now. I hope Castillo gets the majority of the playing time, as he could be the backup catcher next year over Hill who is looking more and more likely to be non-tender. An unconfirmed source says Castillo will be the backup catcher next year and Hill is as good as gone. I sure hope so!
I hope for the best in Colvin the most but also to Soto. It's funny how the Cubs win 13-3 with all backups playing and they lose 2 starters. At least their is only 2 weeks to the season is over.
