Injury Scout - Kerwin Danley Leaves Cubs-Rockies in 1st

HP Umpire Kerwin Danley left Wednesday's #Cubs-#Rockies game in Colorado due to an apparent back injury in the 1st inning.

With two out in the top of the 1st inning, during Cubs batter Ian Happ's at-bat vs Jon Gray, Danley appeared to signal his intent to leave the game at the conclusion of the half-inning, before appearing to suffer a mobility issue on the final pitch of the at-bat, Happ's swinging strikeout.

Danley was replaced behind home plate by 2B Umpire Roberto Ortiz while 1B Umpire CB Bucknor assumed Acting Crew Chief duties at first base and 3B Umpire Adam Hamari remained at third base.

Relevant Injury History: There is no relevant history, but this is Danley's second injury-exit of 2021.
On April 27, 2021, Danley left a Rockies-Giants game after a foul ball head injury.

Last Game: August 4 | Return to Play: August 24 | Time Absent: 19 Days | Video as follows:
