Surgery not an option for Darin Holcomb

My disks are so degenerated, herniated and slipped that they couldn't risk doing surgery.

Colorado Rockies minor league 3B Darin Holcomb had received a pair of cortisone injections from back specialist Dr. Robert Watkins on Wednesday, March 24. Holcomb will spend the next two weeks rehabbing at Fischer Sports before receiving another pair of cortisone injections. Holcomb said surgery was not an option for him because his back was in such bad shape. He will be out for an indefinite period of time.
