Wednesday, May 26: El Paso has had several big league players in baseball over the years, one with a bright future is Omar Quintanilla. The former Socorro Bulldog and Texas Longhorn made a name for himself two years ago with the Colorado Rockies. In spring training of this year, Omar went down with a partially torn MCL in his knee. I spoke to him today, Omar has recovered, but in a rehab assignment, Quintanilla pulled his calf muscle. He is on the 7-day disabled list. Omar expects to be out for another week, then will begin more rehab with the Rockies Triple A affiliate, the Sky Sox. Here's hoping Omar gets healthy soon and we see him back in the majors with the Rockies.
