Update from injured outfielder Tyler Colvin
Yesterday, the Cubs released a statement on outfielder Tyler Colvin, who is in stable condition in a Miami hospital after being struck in the chest by a shattered bat. Colvin will be held for observation and his season has been said to be done.
Colvin also had some words for the fans and others who have helped him through this episode:
“I want to thank Cubs fans for their support all season, especially right now, and let everyone know that I’m doing OK,” said Colvin. “I also want to thank everyone who has helped take care of me here in Miami – the Cubs and Marlins training and medical staffs, the EMTs at the ballpark and everyone here at the hospital.
“You never want to have a season end early, and I’m disappointed that I’m not going to be able to make it through the finish line with the rest of my teammates. That being said, I couldn’t be more thankful for the Cubs organization, my teammates and the opportunity to play for Cubs fans my rookie season. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
