By  | 

Colorado Rockies outfielder Brad Hawpe has a contusion on the back of his neck from being struck by a pickoff throw but will be in uniform for Tuesday night's game against the Padres.

Hawpe was taken from the field in a cart with a brace around his neck after San Diego catcher Nick Hundley's throw to second base hit him in the sixth inning on Monday night.

The Rockies say a CT scan of Hawpe's neck was negative and he was released from Rose Medical Center in Denver on Monday night.

He is listed as day-to-day.

Hawpe is hitting .328 with two home runs.
