Carlos Gonzalez (ankle, knee) is out of the Rockies' starting lineup Wednesday against the Cubs.

CarGo was limping around the visitors clubhouse at Wrigley Field before Wednesday night's game. He rolled his ankle on Saturday and also has some left knee soreness.
Jul 30 - 6:07 PM

Josh Rutledge (illness) will be available in an emergency on Wednesday night versus the Cubs.

Rutledge is still getting over the upper respiratory infection that kept him out of the lineup on Monday and Tuesday. He'll be on the bench again Wednesday but could enter late as a pinch-hitter or defensive replacement.
Jul 30 - 5:46 PM

Rockies recalled RHP Rob Scahill from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Scahill has posted a 6.75 ERA in three relief appearances this season out of the Rockies' bullpen. He is doubtful to pitch in any high-leverage situations.
Jul 30 - 5:43 PM

Rockies optioned INF Christian Adames to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Adames was only with the Rockies for about 24 hours. The 23-year-old owns an unimpressive .276/.332/.351 slash line this season between Double-A and Triple-A.
Jul 30 - 5:42 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Rockies plan to either pick up Brett Anderson's $12 million option for 2015 or sign him to a long-term deal.

Anderson has been terrific in his last two starts, which has piqued the interest of the Yankees, according to ESPN's Buster Olney. However, Rosenthal says Colorado wants to keep the lefty around rather than field trade offers for him. Anderson has been limited to just six starts this year due to a fractured left index finger, but he's put up a 3.24 ERA in those outings.
Jul 30 - 9:52 AM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Rockies are expected to hang on to LaTroy Hawkins.

Hawkins is 41 and would have some value on a contending team in a middle relief role, but the Rockies like his veteran presence and plan to pick up his $2.25 million club option for 2015. Hawkins has saved 17-of-18 chances this season while sporting a 3.09 ERA. The Pirates and a couple other clubs had expressed interest.
Jul 30 - 12:47 AM

Rockies recalled INF Cristhian Adames from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Adames will give the Rockies some infield depth while Troy Tulowitzki (hip) is on the DL and Josh Rutledge battles an illness. The 23-year-old has hit .276/.332/.351 with two homers between Double- and Triple-A this season and will be making his major league debut when he gets into a game.
Jul 29 - 6:12 PM

Rockies activated LHP Boone Logan from the 15-day disabled list.

Logan missed the minimum amount of time with diverticulitis. He returns to a 6.11 ERA over 25 relief appearances.
Jul 29 - 6:10 PM

Rockies optioned RHP Chad Bettis to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Bettis gave up nine runs over eight appearances during his latest stint with the big club. He has a nice arm, but the righty has yet to put it together at the major league level.
Jul 29 - 6:09 PM

Rockies optioned RHP Brooks Brown to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Brown held a 7.56 ERA over nine relief appearances with the big club. He'll likely be back in September, if not before.
Jul 29 - 6:08 PM

Rockies optioned 1B Ben Paulsen to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Paulsen had 10 hits in 22 at-bats while up with the Rockies, but he's no longer needed with Justin Morneau back from the DL. He'll be back later this season.
Jul 29 - 6:06 PM

Josh Rutledge is out of the Rockies' starting lineup again on Tuesday against the Cubs.

Rutledge is battling an upper respiratory infection and could need a few more days off. The infielder has performed well as Troy Tulowitzki's (hip) fill-in at shortstop but obviously needs to be benched for now in fantasy leagues that allow for daily lineup changes.
Jul 29 - 5:01 PM

Rockies activated 1B Justin Morneau from the 15-day disabled list.

Morneau missed the minimum amount of time with a mild neck strain. The veteran first baseman boasts a .312/.345/.502 batting line with 13 home runs and 60 RBI in 89 games this season. It's been a resurgent year for Morneau, and the strong production should continue down the stretch (with the help of Coors Field).
Jul 29 - 4:48 PM

Getting a start at shortstop, Charlie Culberson went 0-for-3 on Monday, lowering his average to .179.

Worse, Culberson has a horrific 41/4 K/BB ratio in 134 at-bats. His ability to play all four infield spots and left field would come in handy if he were hitting at all, but he's been a liability in his bench role this year.
Jul 28 - 11:38 PM

Josh Rutledge was scratched from Monday's lineup due to illness.

He should be ready to go in a day or two. Rutledge has hit .375/.375/.656 with one homer and nine RBI over seven games since taking over shortstop for the injured Troy Tulowitzki (hip).
