Street Struck By Line Drive During BP

Rockies reliever Huston Street bruised the right side of his abdomen when he was hit by a line drive in batting practice Tuesday.

Street is currently listed as day-to-day. He had to be taken off the field on a stretcher.

Rockies head athletic trainer Keith Dugger said that Street passed out "two or three times" and had ringing in his ears after being struck by the baseball off the bat of Ian Stewart as Street warmed up in right field.

"Right on the pelvis. You could see a black-and-blue mark," Dugger said. "He'd hold his breath when he felt discomfort and pain."

Colorado's First-Round Pick Returns To Clemson

Kyle Parker, a first-round pick of the Rockies, has decided to return to Clemson.

Parker is a right fielder and quarterback.

"I was in a situation where I couldn't make a bad decision," Parker said.

"All my options are still on the table at this point. The only option I have ruled out is playing baseball exclusively for the Colorado Rockies right now. Negotiations will continue with the Rockies, but I will play football at Clemson this fall."
