Rogers likely to miss one or two rehab starts
DENVER -- Rockies right-hander Esmil Rogers has halted his injury rehab stint at Triple-A Colorado Springs because of pain in his side. He is expected to miss one or two starts.

Rogers lasted just 3 2/3 innings, gave up two home runs and lost to Las Vegas on Tuesday night in what was potentially his last start on a rehab assignment for a right lat strain. Rogers, who hasn't pitched in the Majors since May 1, returned to Coors Field on Wednesday for an examination. He felt the cautious approach was correct.

"I don't want to push myself more than I am right now, so I'm going to get treatment and everything is going to be OK," Rogers said.

Center fielder Dexter Fowler went 0-for-4 for Colorado Springs in his first game of a rehab assignment for a left abdominal strain. Fowler struggled offensively before the injury, so the time in Triple-A could be longer than a normal rehab assignment.
