The Colorado Rockies lose three players for the year

The Rockies have shut down 25-year old switch-hitting IF/OF Eric Young (pain in right shin), 39-year old lefty swinging 1B Jason Giambi (biceps) and 26-year old righty closer Huston Street (rib cage). Young played in 51 games for the Rockies this year and he was 42 of 172 (.244 avg, .597 OPS) with 26 runs scored, 8 RBIs and 17 stolen bases. Giambi played in 87 games for the Rockies this year and he was 43 of 176 (.244 avg, .776 OPS) with 17 runs scored, 6 homers and 35 RBIs. Huston Street pitched in 44 games (0 starts) for the Rockies this year and he was 4-4 with 20 saves, a 3.61 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP. With the Rockies out of playoffs contention it makes perfect sense to shut these three guys down and let them get healthy.
