An MRI on Nick Hundley's neck revealed that the catcher has a cervical strain.

Hundley hurt his neck on a swing Sunday and he could be sidelined for a while. "It's a cervical strain," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said Thursday. "I'm a little more concerned than I was a day or two ago. We'll see how this affects the rest of his season. ... If Nick is going to miss considerable time, we've got to talk about bringing up another guy." The Rockies had Wilin Rosario make his first start of the season at catcher on Thursday, but they'd like to avoid having to use him at the position. Expect them to promote another catcher to pair with Dustin Garneau.

Nick Hundley (neck) is not in the lineup for Monday's contest with the Padres.

Hundley was lifted from Sunday's game against the Giants after two at-bats due to neck stiffness. The injury doesn't seem major, but the team's giving him Monday afternoon off. Consider him day-to-day, likely to return at some point later this week.

Nick Hundley went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's loss to the Pirates.

With the Rockies trailing 4-1 in the ninth inning, Hundley stepped up and launched a one-out, two-run homer off Pirates closer Mark Melancon. It would draw the Rockies closer, but they wouldn't score again in the inning as they fell to 51-76 on the season. Hundley must feel like he's in purgatory, as his .299/.336/.470 triple slash, 10 homers and 43 RBI are plenty respectable even if the team he plays for is not.

Nick Hundley is not in the Rockies' lineup Thursday.

Michael McKenry will start at catcher and bat seventh against Astros right-hander Collin McHugh. McKenry has posted an impressive .904 OPS in 32 games this season, commanding a larger share of playing time than a typical backup. Hundley should start on Friday.
Jun 18 - 12:33 PM

Hundley provided the only offense on the night for the Rox, as his fifth inning solo homer was one of the team's four hits. Hundley actually had two of them, as he finished 2-for-3 with the blast. Hundley how has five homers and 16 RBI to go with a .317/.356/.504 line as the team's everyday backstop.
May 26 - 10:13 PM

Nick Hundley's tie-breaking home run in the eighth inning sent the Rockies to a win over the Phillies on Tuesday.

The catcher finished 2-for-4 on the evening. He knocked in the Rockies' third run in the first inning with a single to left field. With the game tied at 5-5 in the eighth, he drilled a Justin De Fratus offering over the fence in left-center to put the Rockies on top. Hundley has hit well thus far, batting .307/.349/.465 with three home runs and 11 RBI.
May 19 - 11:57 PM

Nick Hundley went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in a win over the Brewers on Tuesday.

Getting his second straight start behind the dish, Hundley provided some unexpected offense in the victory. Hundley contributed an RBI single in the first inning and later added a double. Although Wilin Rosario is his offensive superior, Hundley has much better defensive chops and appears to be the preferred choice of Rockies manager Walt Weiss out of the gate. It's a bad sign for fantasy owners hoping for a rebound from Rosario in 2015.
Apr 7 - 11:39 PM

Nick Hundley homered off Clayton Kershaw in the Rockies' 2-2 exhibition tie with the Dodgers on Tuesday.

It was a third-inning shot to left field. Hundley is expected to be the Rockies' primary catcher this season, though Wilin Rosario and Michael McKenry also figure to get some starts. Hundley probably won't be a good option in standard mixed fantasy leagues.
Mar 10 - 7:05 PM

Nick Hundley went 1-for-3 with a double, two RBI, and two runs scored in Sunday's Cactus League match-up versus the Padres.

Hundley hit well against his former team. He tied up the game at four apiece in the third inning with a two run double. He should get the lion's share of the playing time behind the plate along with Wilin Rosario and Michael McKenry.
