Colorado Rockies injury updates: Austin Gomber, Mychal Givens, Matt Adams
Prior to the Colorado Rockies taking on the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday afternoon, Colorado manager Bud Black gave an update on three of his injured players.
Here is the latest Colorado Rockies injury updates on Matt Adams, Mychal Givens, and Austin Gomber.
Let’s start on the pitching side and with starting pitcher Austin Gomber, who was placed on the 10-day injured list on June 20 with left forearm tightness. Gomber left his June 19 start against Milwaukee at Coors Field after just 2.0 innings of work, finishing off a June that saw him post a 3-0 mark and 1.29 ERA in 21.0 innings.
Black told reporters, including Rox Pile, that Gomber will throw side sessions on Sunday and Tuesday to see how he is progressing. He will not come off the 10-day injured list when he is eligible, but will instead head to a minor league rehab assignment.

Could Gomber return to the Rockies before the All-Star break? It likely depends on how the side sessions go as well as what Colorado sees in Gomber’s rehab start. We’ll keep an eye on that and bring updates as they are available.
Givens, meanwhile, is working his way back from a left lower back strain that landed him on the injured list on June 17. The right-handed reliever threw a bullpen session in Milwaukee on Saturday and told our own Noah Yingling that everything was “good” after the session but we will know more about Givens tomorrow.
Barring any setbacks, Givens looks to be on track to be reinstated to the active roster once his 10-day stint is completed.
On the position player side, Adams was placed on the 10-day injured list on June 9 with a right elbow strain. He took infield on Saturday in Milwaukee and told Yingling that “everything is feeling great” right before heading to a batting practice session. Adams will likely be assigned for a minor league rehab session soon.
Yingling will be in Milwaukee with the Rockies throughout their series, and then I will be at Coors Field all of next week as the Pittsburgh Pirates and St. Louis Cardinals come to Denver. We will stay on top of the injury news and bring you the latest updates here and on our Twitter site.
