Charlie Blackmon to sit for second straight day in series finale against San Diego; trip to disabled list unlikely

Rockies centerfielder Charlie Blackmon is sitting for Wednesday afternoon’s series finale against San Diego, the second straight game the all-star won’t play after being scratched on Tuesday due to quad tightness.

Blackmon worked with Rockies athletic trainer Keith Dugger on the field for about 30 minutes during pregame as Colorado looks to avoid the sweep, going through an array of stretches and warmups for his legs.

Mike Tauchman will once again fill in for Blackmon in centerfield.

The disabled list is unlikely for Blackmon, who is set to miss his third game this year. He didn’t play on Sunday against Atlanta due to back spasms.
