Rockies rest Young with sore right shin

Rockies rest Young with sore right shin

LOS ANGELES -- Rockies second baseman Eric Young was bothered by the right shin that landed him on the 60-day disabled list in May and was given the day off on Sunday.

"He came out of the game [in the sixth inning Saturday], sooner than I had the intention of removing him," manager Jim Tracy said. "That spot on his shin, where we dealt with the chip fracture and stuff, he got sore. That spot flared up a little bit."

The Rockies have an off-day on Monday and Tracy said Young would be looked at again on Tuesday. Young is hitting .261 with no home runs and 17 stolen bases in 44 games.

Jonathan Herrera, hitting .290 in 183 at-bats, started at second base and batted second.
