Anyone who saw video of Joey Votto's one-hopper off the leg of Rockies starter Aaron Cook did a double-take when they saw the words from manager Jim Tracy that his season may not be over.
Cook suffered a non-displaced fracture of his right fibula on Wednesday. He says he'll try to return this season, but doesn't sound too convinced of it in this article by the Denver Post 's Jim Armstrong .
"I'll do everything I can and hope for the best, but I guess, being realistic, get ready for spring training," Cook said. "It's disappointing, but I'm a baseball player. That's baseball." Cook was in his second start after a minor-league rehab assignment. Cook has been on the disabled list five times in his career, but this is his first broken bone, he said. He will wear a protective book for four weeks.
Cook added that Votto left a message for him with a Rockies official.
"He made a phone call to say he felt bad," Cook said. "I guess he said he didn't do it on purpose. As if anybody would do anything like that on purpose."
