Rockies prospect shortstop Rosell Herrera went 3-for-3 with a home run and two walks for High-A Modesto on Wednesday.

Herrera has gone ice cold since mid-June, hitting .229/.309/.351 over 34 games, striking out 25 times. Despite the concerns that he will need to move to third base full time, Herrera is still playing shortstop about 60 percent of the time.

Rockies shortstop prospect Rosell Herrera went 2-for-5 with two home runs for High-A Modesto on Wednesday, raising his season line to .313/.347/.393.

Herrera missed nearly six weeks with a sore wrist, and has been on fire since his return, hitting .400/.455/.600 with two doubles and two home runs in 10 games. He is likely to move to third base due to Troy Tulowitzki, though the emergence of Nolan Arenado could be an issue. In his last two games, he has one single, two doubles, and two home runs.

Rockies purchased the contract of SS Rosell Herrera from Class-A Asheville.

Herrera broke out in a big way in 2013, batting .343/.419/.515 with 16 home runs and 21 stolen bases at Asheville. Still just 21, Herrera is a few years away from the majors. Adding him to the 40-man roster ensures that he won't be snatched by another team in December's Rule 5 Draft, though.
