«We’ll know more (Friday after the pictures are taken) how it sets up, but we hope it’s just a concussion similar to the one he suffered in Albuquerque about three weeks ago,» manager Bud Black said, via The Denver Post.
«When Soler hit him, I didn’t think I got it, but Doyle made a big jump and initially, I thought I caught him. When I saw him go down, we all gasped, and from then on you just cross your fingers.»
