Colorado Rockies OF Corey Dickerson (foot) was activated from the disabled list Thursday, June 11, and OF Kyle Parker was optioned to the minors in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Dickerson ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is starting Thursday and hitting sixth against Miami Marlins starter David Phelps tonight. He was hitting .306 (34-for-111) with five home runs and 16 RBI before landing on the DL. It wouldn't be crazy to start Dickerson on FantasyScore in his first game back, especially since many may not realize he's even back from injury yet.

Colorado Rockies OF Kyle Parker is being brought up from the minors Tuesday, June 9.
Fantasy Tip: Parker, the team's No. 13 ranked prospect per MLB.com, hit only .192 (5-for-26) with an RBI in limited action last year. He was hitting .275 (55-for-200) with seven home runs and 33 RBI for Class AAA Albuquerque before the call-up, and he's reached 20 homers three times in the minors. That kind of power in an everyday role at hitter-friendly Coors Field will interest fantasy owners. Now it's just a matter of finding at-bats at the major league level.

Colorado Rockies OF Corey Dickerson (wrist) is out of the lineup Wednesday, July 9, after hurting his wrist Tuesday, July 8. OF Kyle Parker will make the start at first base, and OF Brandon Barnes is in left field.
Fantasy Tip: It appears as though Dickerson's injury is a day-to-day situation. The Rockies are facing a left-handed pitcher today, so perhaps the Rockies use Parker at first base against southpaws to give Justin Morneau a break.

Colorado Rockies OF Kyle Parker has been recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs Tuesday, July 8. In a corresponding move, SP Yohan Flande was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Fantasy Tip: This is a surprising move given the logjam in the outfield, and Justin Morneau entrenched at first base. Parker didn't get the at-bats to have fantasy relevancy during his last recall, and little has changed. Until he sticks, a roster spot is tough to justify.

The Colorado Rockies have optioned OF/1B Kyle Parker to Triple-A Colorado Springs, in order to make room for SP Christian Friedrich on the 25-man roster.

The Colorado Rockies are recalling OF Kyle Parker from Triple-A Colorado Springs Monday, June 16.
Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen how much Parker will play in the Carlos Gonzalez-less outfield in Colorado, but he should at least see semi-regular playing time while he's up. Parker has 20-plus home run power thanks to a quick and powerful stroke. Look to acquire him in NL-only leagues, for now.
