The Colorado Rockies placed SS Troy Tulowitzki (rib) on the disabled list with a rib fracture on his right side. They recalled 2B Josh Rutledge from Class AAA Colorado Springs.
Fantasy Tip: Expect Rutledge to factor into the middle-infield mix, in some form, with Tulo dinged. Rutledge is a much better mixed option than DJ LeMahieu and Jonathan Herrera. On Friday, Rutledge is playing the keystone, and Herrera is playing shortstop. Platoon matchups might determine much of these arrangements.

Colorado Rockies 2B Josh Rutledge is on his way to Denver, according to a major league source. He's expected to play some shortstop with Troy Tulowitzki (rib) landing on the disabled list, and he'll probably hit second.
Fantasy Tip: If someone in your deep mixed league ditched Rutledge, snatch him up immediately. There's plenty of reason to take the chance that he'll recover some of his 2012 magic, and he should have at least a month's worth of time, even if he has to split reps with DJ LeMahieu and Jonathan Herrera.
