Colorado Rockies INF DJ LeMahieu will take over as the regular second baseman following the demotion of 2B Josh Rutledge to Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Fantasy Tip: LeMahieu is worth adding in most NL-only fantasy leagues and deeper mixed formats, especially if you need middle infielder assistance.

The Colorado Rockies placed SP Jeff Francis (groin) on the 15-day disabled list with a left groin strain Thursday, May 16, and designated INF Reid Brignac for assignment. 3B DJ LeMahieu and P Rob Scahill were both recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Fantasy Tip: Tyler Chatwood and Drew Pomeranz are both candidates to replace Francis in the rotation, starting Sunday. Roy Oswalt is probably the best long-term bet for this rotation spot, though, but all three of these options are risky propositions in mixed formats.

Colorado Rockies manager Walt Weiss is keeping an open mind when it comes to the competition for the starting third base job this spring. 3B Chris Nelson is the favorite for the spot because of his bat as he competes with INFs Jordan Pacheco, DJ LeMahieu and Nolan Arenado. However, Nelson's defense may set him back. Nelson is leaner this spring after doing speed training with Atlanta Braves OF Jason Heyward and Baltimore Orioles OF Xavier Avery in the offseason. "I don't want to feel heavy legs again in spring. I really worked out on it. I am sore, but it's not the heavy sore like before," Nelson said. "I am going out there every day, competing, taking nothing for granted. Sometimes things take longer than you expect because you have to learn along the way."

Colorado Rockies INF DJ LeMahieu is in camp competing, trying to make sure he isn't forgotten after ascending to the starting second base job last season. The team expects to use 2B Josh Rutledge as their starter, since he has more power. "I'm coming in here and competing. You could look at it both ways, but I think I'd be cutting myself short to be just trying to make the team," LeMahieu said Wednesday, Feb. 20.

The Colorado Rockies avoided arbitration with INF Jonathan Herrera Wednesday, Jan. 23, by agreeing to a one-year, $900,000 deal. Herrera isn't a lock to make the roster this spring with INF Josh Rutledge shifting over to second base. INFs Chris Nelson, Jordan Pacheco, DJ LeMahieu and Ryan Wheeler will compete at third base. Herrera may compete directly with LeMahieu for a bench spot.

Colorado Rockies 2B Josh Rutledge is expected to enter spring training camp as the team's starter at second base, ahead of INF DJ LeMahieu.

Colorado Rockies SS Troy Tulowitzki (groin) went 1-for-3 with a single for Double-A Tulsa in five innings Wednesday, Sept. 5, and he's scheduled to play seven innings with Tulsa Thursday, Sept. 6, before pinch hitting Friday, Sept. 7. INF Jonathan Herrera is starting at shortstop in place of Tulowitzki Thursday, and INF DJ LeMahieu may also see some time there.

Colorado Rockies SS Josh Rutledge (quadriceps) could return to the lineup Monday, Aug. 27, after being limited to pinch hitting for the last eight games. He has gone 4-for-7 with four RBIs as a pinch hitter. Rutledge is expected to play some second base later this week to prepare for the position when SS Troy Tulowitzki (groin) returns. Manager Jim Tracy likes what he's seeing from INF DJ LeMahieu and said he'll see time when Rutledge returns, meaning Rutledge could also play some third base.
