Tapia's neck is still sore but he is doing better and will be available Sunday against the Dodgers, if needed, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.A collision with the outfield wall Saturday resulted in symptoms of whiplash for Tapia. He is out of the lineup Sunday and it sounds like he's only available in an emergency, but fortunately, it seems he avoided a concussion.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Goes deep against Dodgers
Tapia went 1-for-3 with a home run in Saturday's loss against the Dodgers.Tapia might have connected on his first homer of the season when he took Walker Buehler deep in the third inning with two outs, but he will undoubtedly be remembered for his defensive mistake that allowed the inside-the-park homer of Zach McKinstry. Tapia has hit safely in each of the Rockies' first three games, but he's still looking for his first multi-hit game of the campaign.
