Colorado Rockies C Wilin Rosario (hamstring) is not in the team's lineup on Wednesday, Aug. 14. His right hamstring is better than it was after his team's game on Tuesday, Aug. 13, and he should be ready to play on Friday, Aug. 16, against the Baltimore Orioles on the road.
Fantasy Tip: Sounds like it's not a big deal. Fantasy owners should keep their eyes on lineups on Friday, though. Yorvit Torrealba will play in Rosario's absence.

Colorado Rockies C Yorvit Torrealba made an appearance at first base in the game Wednesday, April 24, against the Atlanta Braves. He had one assist in two innings before delivering the game-winning hit in the 12th inning. "Usually in winter ball I just played first, but I also played once last year when I was with the Toronto Blue Jays," Torrealba said. "Still, it's not my position so I was a little bit nervous."
Fantasy Tip: Even if Torrealba was able to gain eligibility at first base at some point, his fantasy value would be limited to deeper NL-only leagues unless starting C Wilin Rosario suffers some sort of long-term injury.

Colorado Rockies C Wilin Rosario did not start Tuesday, April 2, against the Milwaukee Brewers with SP Jorge De La Rosa on the mound. The team wants C Yorvit Torrealba to serve as the personal receiver for De La Rosa.
Fantasy Tip: Rosario will still get a majority of the starts for the Rockies over the veteran Torrealba, but keep an eye on the probable pitcher if you play in daily formats. You want to sit Rosario April 8 against the San Francisco Giants, which is the next probable start for De La Rosa.
