Tim Wheeler went 3-for-3 with a home run and three RBI against the Indians on Saturday.
Wheeler was outrighted off the Rockies' 40-man roster last November, an indication of his struggles in the minors, but the 26-year-old has four home runs in Cactus League play. He's now hitting .395 in his bid to make the Rockies as a bench player. Even if he can't break camp with the club, the outfielder has put himself back on the club's radar with his showing.

Rockies sent OF Tim Wheeler outright to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Rockies purchased the contract of OF Tim Wheeler from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Wheeler's power disappeared in 2012 after surgery to remove the hamate bone from his right hand, as he hit just two homers in 379 at-bats following a 33-homer outburst in 2011. He's now on the 40-man roster and will try to get back on track in 2013.

The 32nd pick in the 2009 draft, Wheeler was hitting .200 with two doubles and four RBI at Triple-A Colorado Springs. Wheeler's 33 home runs last season broke the single-season record for Double-A Tulsa. The injury is expected to sideline him about a month.

Wheeler is absolutely crushing Texas League pitching, batting .313/.394/.602 in 352 at-bats. The 23-year-old also has 15 steals, and is a name to keep in your back pocket for the 2012 season.

Rockies agreed to terms with outfielder Tim Wheeler.

Rockies selected Sacramento State outfielder Tim Wheeler with the 32nd and final pick of the first round.

Colorado picked up this pick from the Angels as compensation for losing Brian Fuentes. Wheeler, a left-handed hitter, is a legitimate center fielder with leadoff potential and doubles power. For where they picked, the Rockies, who selected left-hander Tyler Matzek 11th overall, had an excellent first round.
