Rockies' Randal Grichuk: Expects to be back in mid-April

Rockies' Randal Grichuk: Recovering from hernia surgery
Grichuk revealed Tuesday to MLB.com's Thomas Harding that he had surgery for a bilateral sports hernia earlier this month.
Grichuk is likely to be unavailable for Opening Day because this type of procedure often requires at least six weeks of rest and rehab. The issue flared up as he was beginning to raise the intensity of his offseason work in January. "It was one of those things that was not going to get better, and it was a matter of when was it going to get worse," Grichuk said Tuesday in Rockies camp. "I'd much rather miss spring training, get back late spring and miss only a little bit of [regular-season] time than try to play through the grind."... See More ... See Less

Grichuk went 2-for-5 with a run scored in Tuesday's win over Atlanta.
With two hits Tuesday, Grichuk extended his hitting streak to 10 games. He is batting .385 in that stretch but has only three extra-base hits. Manager Bud Black has slotted Grichuk in the leadoff spot more in recent games, and it is possible the outfielder has changed his approach to hit for more average. Whatever the case, Grichuk has the hot hand and is worth starting in most leagues as long as he stays atop the Colorado lineup.... See More ... See Less
