Colorado Rockies LHP Chris Rusin is expected to stay in the bullpen, according to manager Bud Black, even in light of the news RHP Jon Gray will miss at least a month. Rusin allowed one hit over three scoreless frames after Gray left his start Thursday, April 13, with what was eventually diagnosed as a stress fracture in his foot.

Colorado Rockies SP Chris Rusin (shoulder) gave up one run on four hits over four innings of work for Class AAA Albuquerque on Tuesday, July 19.
Fantasy Tip: Rusin put together two strong starts -- 13 IP, 7 H, 3 ER, 6 K's -- prior to hitting the disabled list, but it's unclear what role the southpaw will fill upon returning. If he comes back as a starter he'd be worth a look in NL-only leagues. If he returns in long relief, however, he'd be of no interest.

Colorado Rockies SP Chris Rusin (shoulder) was placed on the disabled list with a left shoulder strain Tuesday, June 14, while RP Miguel Castro was called up from the minors. C Tony Wolters (concussion) was activated from the 7-day concussion list and C Dustin Garneau was optioned to Class AAA.
Fantasy Tip: Rusin had a 4.12 ERA and 1.33 WHIP in 12 outings (seven starts) for the Rockies. He didn't carry much value outside of NL-only formats and as a daily matchup play away from Coors Field. Wolters returns as the backup to Nick Hundley, but he's more of a defensive-minded catcher and was hitting a mere .217 with no home runs and 11 RBI.

Colorado Rockies SP Chris Rusin allowed three hits in six innings Wednesday, June 8, in a 1-0 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers. It was his first win since April 13. Rusin also earned his first win in seven starts this year since moving to the rotation April 30.
Fantasy Tip: Rusin needed the help of four relievers to earn the victory. He may yet emerge as a fine starter in the rotation, but for now give Rusin some time on the bench to stretch out and get used to starting. He may be worth picking up in a deeper league for pitching help as needed.

Colorado Rockies SP Chris Rusin allowed four runs -- three earned -- on four hits over seven innings in a 4-0 loss to the San Diego Padres. Rusin has now dropped four consecutive decisions.
Fantasy Tip: Since joining the rotation in early May, Rusin is 0-4 with a 6.00 ERA and a 1.79 WHIP in six starts. Despite not pitching that badly Friday night, he gave up a three-run bomb to Matt Kemp and that was enough. He hasn't been awful in his four most recent starts, but even those in NL-only leagues would be hard pressed to justify carrying him on their roster.

Colorado Rockies SP Eddie Butler will pitch against the San Francisco Giants Saturday, May 28, and SP Chris Rusin will be pushed back to start against the Giants Sunday, May 29.
Fantasy Tip: With both outings taking place at hitter-friendly Coors Field, neither Butler or Rusin are viable options in the majority of fantasy formats. After all, Butler has a career 6.70 ERA through 48 1/3 innings at Coors, and Rusin has a 5.95 mark through 84 2/3 innings.
