Calgary opens a unique interchange, the first in Canada, on Macleod Trail and 162 Avenue

Rockies’ Nolan Arenado dodges broken hand, hopes he can avoid DL

MIAMI — His left hand was thickly bandaged, but Rockies all-star third baseman Nolan Arenado was able to breathe a sigh of relief after escaping serious injury Sunday at Marlins Park. “It hurts pretty bad, and it got really tight and that was my concern,” Arenado said in the clubhouse after the Rockies’ 5-3 loss to the Miami Marlins. “Luckily it’s not broken, but it hurts and it’s going to take some time, hopefully just a couple of days. But it hurts pretty bad right now.” Colorado’s National League MVP candidate departed from the game in the fifth inning after getting drilled on a pitch by Vance Worley. Worley’s inside… Read More
