Worst: This look was . . . special. Overall, though, I’m not enamoured with the Rockies’ uniforms and never have been. Their color scheme is clearly the result of an early 90s fixation with black which followed the marketing success of Los Angeles Raiders hats and the like. The purple accents are of that time too, though we’ll cut the Rockies a bit of slack due to the mountains’ majesty and all of that. I can’t help but think that they’d do something different if they were launched in 2003 instead of 1993, and I can’t look at them without thinking of David Nied and Color Me Badd and every other creative and competitive dead end that was popular for a brief time when I was a sophomore in college.
CLEVELAND (AP) Indians ace Corey Kluber had the hard cast protecting his broken right arm removed and the two-time Cy Young winner is healing as hoped.
Kluber underwent imaging texts Thursday, which showed that his ulna is mending properly. Cleveland manager Terry Francona said Kluber can begin range of motion and that he will be re-examined in two weeks.
The right-hander broke his arm when he was struck flush by a line drive hit by Miami’s Brian Anderson on May 1. At the time, the Indians said surgery wasn’t needed, and Francona said the medical staff told him Kluber was having “expected healing.”
Kluber has been fitted with a protective brace. He said it was a relief to have the cast off and is excited that he “can do a lot more now.”
The 33-year-old ran sprints in the outfield before the series opener against Tampa Bay.
Kluber won 20 games last season and at least 18 in each of the past three seasons. He is 2-3 with a 5.80 ERA in seven starts this year.
