Escalona exits game with triceps issue, MRI Monday


DENVER -- Rockies right-handed reliever Edgmer Escalona left Sunday's 8-7 win over the Padres in the seventh inning with right triceps soreness and will have a precautionary MRI Monday.

Escalona exited the game after delivering back-to-back home runs to Cameron Maybin and Mark Kotsay, handing San Diego a one-run lead.

"It looks like his elbow," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "It's been bothering him off and on, but he was good to go today. He was good to go more than one [inning] today. But that was bothering a week and a half or so ago. It started bothering him a little bit."

Escalona's ERA climbed to 4.18 after he surrendered three runs in just one-third of an inning.
