Rockies' Desmond stays upbeat after hand surgery

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) Ian Desmond, with his right hand, is able to drive slowly around the Colorado Rockies spring training complex in a golf cart and watch teammates practice. That's what he did Friday afternoon before the Rockies left camp to play the San Francisco Giants.

The left hand, however, is wrapped like a club. Desmond, who was set to be the Rockies' opening day first baseman, broke a bone in the hand when he was hit by a pitch in a spring training game last Sunday. He's since had surgery.

Desmond spoke to reporters about the injury for the first time Friday. He seemed upbeat despite the prognosis of at least four to six weeks until he returns.
