Rockies' Dexter Fowler injured again

Dexter Fowler left Friday's 3-4 loss to San Diego in the 6th inning with a knee injury.

Fowler had just made it back into the lineup Tuesday after missing the six previous games with the original knee problem.

Fowler appeared to hurt the knee when he stole second base in the fifth inning.

He was 1-for-2 with a double and a run scored before leaving. He is considered day-to-day.

At only 113 games played so far this year and only a few weeks left on the season, he's looking to hit a career-low in games (while being on Opening Day roster).

He's started really missing time when injuries began affecting him in mid-June and hasn't been able to stay healthy since.

After finally hitting a dead even .300 last year for the first time in his career, as well as a career-high 143 games played, things have regressed for him in 2013 as his average is back down to .262.

On a positive offensive note, he does have 12 homers in a much shorter season for him after hitting a career-high 13 in 2012.
