Corey Dickerson re-injured his foot on Saturday afternoon after dealing with plantar fasciitis all year, and the Colorado Rockies might be in trouble all year with this one.

Corey Dickerson left the Rockies’ game Saturday afternoon against the Marlins in the sixth inning after a ground out, walking carefully off the field due to his foot injury. Either at that point, or earlier, the injury was re-aggravated during the game.

The game was just Dickerson’s third one back since returning from the disabled list after going down with plantar fasciitis in the same foot nearly a month ago.

Now, he is dealing with it again, manager Walt Weiss told reporters:

"“He felt the foot. Not sure exactly how serious it is, but it’s a chronic thing, and hopefully it didn’t flare up too bad. But he definitely felt it.”"

As our friends at Purple Row argue, this will likely be something that Dickerson has to deal with all season long.

It would be one more good bat the Rockies are out at points during the year if the club feels it is best to rest him rather than have him play through it any more to avoid risking further injury.

Either way, for a club that isn’t hitting on the road — the Rockies have scored two runs in three games in Miami so far this series — losing a player like Dickerson (who already has two doubles in the series) for even a day or two is troubling. Of course, the injury could linger longer than that.

No word yet on whether Dickerson will be in the Rockies’ lineup on Sunday, but his injury is worth keeping an eye on considering how important his bat is to the Colorado Rockies.
