PEORIA, Ariz. -- Rockies starter Tyler Chatwood was removed from Friday's game in the top of the third inning with a slight strain and cramping in his left hamstring.
He will be re-evaluated Saturday.
"It doesn't seem like it was too bad," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "Hopefully, it was just a cramp. We'll know more in the morning."
"I told him to take one pitch and hit a double so when I went out there I told him, 'I told you to hit a double, not a triple,'" Weiss said. "He said, 'I know. I messed it up.'"
Chatwood struck out one batter and walked one in two scoreless innings before the injury. He went 8-5 with a 3.15 ERA in 20 starts for the Rockies last season.
