Steve Foster, Rockies pitching coach, taken to hospital for tests after suffering chest pains
ST. LOUIS» Rockies pitching coach Steve Foster suffered chest pains Monday before the club’s game against St. Louis and was taken to a hospital for tests, manager Bud Black said.
“Steve is doing OK,” Black said after the Rockies’ 8-2 loss to the Cardinals. “He had some chest pains earlier in the morning, and (trainer) Keith (Dugger) and a collection of other people said, ‘Let’s go get this checked out.’
“He’s at a local hospital, going through a battery of tests. And what I’m hearing so far is that he’s doing well, and things are checking out in a good way.”
Foster, who turns 51 on Aug. 16, is in his third season as Colorado’s pitching coach.
Black said the decision to send Foster to the hospital was “precautionary.”
“We expect ‘Fostie’ to be back tomorrow,” Black said.
