Hamstring surgery to end Hernandez's season
DENVER -- Rockies catcher Ramon Hernandez underwent a second MRI on Wednesday that revealed a torn tendon in his left hamstring. He will undergo surgery next week and is done for the season.

Hernandez suffered the hamstring injury in the fourth inning Monday night. He pulled up running to first base after hitting a ground-rule double. This is the second significant injury this season for Hernandez, 36, who signed a two-year, $6.4 million contract with the Rockies as a free agent last winter. He missed 42 games before the All-Star break with soreness in his left hand.

Hernandez hit .217 in 52 games with five homers and 28 RBIs. He was signed to be the Rockies' regular catcher and to mentor rookie Wilin Rosario but lost his starting job while being sidelined with his hand injury.
