Oklahoma State coach Josh Holliday called injured catcher Colin Simpson “day-to-day” with a wrist injury suffered Sunday against Oklahoma.

Simpson was hit by a pitch in the left wrist, which was lightly taped Tuesday morning as he participated in non-baseball activities at Allie P. Reynolds Stadium.

“If it was a hacky sack game, he’d be playing,” Holliday said with a smirk as he watched Simpson kicking the bag around with his teammates before Tuesday’s practice.

“We’ll just go one day at a time. If there’s any way he can play, he’ll play.”

The Cowboys host Baylor in a three-game series beginning Thursday to conclude the regular season.

For the year, Simpson is batting .240 with 10 home runs and 40 runs batted in.

He was replaced on Sunday by Bryce Carter, who hit a go-ahead three-run home run to seal the win for the Cowboys.
