Ryan Raburn was scratched from the Rockies starting lineup on Tuesday.

Raburn apparently came down with an illness shortly before game time, so he'll sit this one out. Charlie Blackmon entered the lineup in his place and will bat leadoff, while Brandon Barnes shifts over to left field.

Trevor Story (finger) has returned to the Rockies starting lineup on Tuesday.

Story tested out his injured finger before the game and it appears to have held up just fine. He'll bat second in a premium matchup at home against Blue Jays' southpaw JA Happ.

Charlie Blackmon is not in the Rockies starting lineup for Tuesday night's tilt against the Blue Jays.

There's nothing wrong with the speedy center fielder, it's just a routine day of rest. Brandon Barnes will start in his place against JA Happ and the Jays.

D.J. LeMahieu (knee) said Tuesday that he's feeling much better and expects to return to the starting lineup on Wednesday.

LeMahieu was forced to leave Sunday's game with a left knee contusion and sat out on Monday as a precautionary measure. It's likely that Daniel Descalso will fill in again on Tuesday against JA Happ and the Blue Jays.

Trevor Story will test out his injured finger by throwing during batting practice on Tuesday, and if all feels well he'll be in the Rockies starting lineup.

Otherwise, he'll get another day of rest with Cristhian Adames likely in his stead. Story sustained a bruised right middle finger when he was drilled by a pitch in the ninth inning on Sunday.

Carlos Gonzalez went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer and a walk to lead the Rockies to a 9-5 win over the Blue Jays on Monday.

In the 31 days since May 27, Carlos Gonzalez has 11 homers, 10 doubles and 31 RBI. It's the kind of run that figures to put him on the NL All-Star team for the first time since 2013 and the third time in his career.

Jon Gray pitched seven innings and allowed four runs Monday in a win over the Blue Jays.

Gray was allowed to start on four days' rest tonight despite complaining of fatigue and a heavy arm last time out. He was plenty effective, too, striking out eight and walking none. He's lasted seven innings in six of his 13 starts.

Rockies manager Walt Weiss said Monday that the club will wait to decide if Jake McGee (knee) will regain the closer job after he comes back from the disabled list.

McGee, out since June 10 with left knee inflammation, is set to begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with Class A Modesto and appears on track to rejoin the Rockies on Saturday. Carlos Estevez has had a couple of shaky appearances recently, so his case to keep the job might have taken a hit, but Weiss said they haven't made a final decision yet. "That’s one of the conversations we need to have," said Weiss. "The bullpen is ever-evolving." McGee had 15 saves with a 4.98 ERA and 15/6 K/BB ratio in 21 2/3 innings prior to hitting the disabled list.

DJ LeMahieu (knee) is absent from Monday's lineup versus the Blue Jays.

LeMahieu exited Sunday's game with a left knee contusion, but fortunately an MRI on Monday came back clean. He's still dealing with some soreness, but hopes to play Tuesday. Daniel Descalso will start in his place at second base and bat sixth Monday.
Jun 27 - 5:19 PM

Trevor Story (finger) is not in Monday's lineup against the Blue Jays.

Story suffered a bruised right middle finger when he was hit by a pitch on Sunday. Consider him day-to-day. Cristhian Adames will start in his place at shortstop and bat second against right-hander Marco Estrada.
Jun 27 - 5:16 PM

Tyler Chatwood (back) threw all his pitches during Sunday's bullpen session.

He'll throw another on Monday in hopes of beginning a rehab assignment on Thursday. Chatwood seems to be making solid progress in his recovery from a strained lower back. He's been a borderline All-Star this year with eight wins and a 3.15 ERA in 14 starts.

DJ LeMahieu left Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks with a bruised left knee.

He came out in the sixth inning after going 0-for-1 with a pair of walks. LeMaheiu landed awkwardly on his knee after diving for a single by Paul Goldschmidt. He'll have an MRI on Monday. Daniel Descalso replaced LeMahieu at second base and will probably start there during his absence. LeMahieu's .327 average is tied for third-best in the National League.

Trevor Story was diagnosed with a bruised right middle finger after being hit by a pitch in the ninth inning on Sunday.

Thankfully for the Rockies and fantasy owners alike, X-rays came back negative. Consider him day-to-day heading into next week.
Jun 27 - 5:01 AM

Trevor Story is heading for X-rays on his hand after being drilled by a pitch leading off the ninth inning against the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

Story was drilled leading off the ninth inning, then came around to score the game-winning run on Mark Reynolds' walk-off blast. The Rockies are hopeful that his hand isn't broken, but it remains a very real possibility at this time. Expect an update on his status shortly.
Jun 26 - 8:21 PM

Mark Reynolds blasted a walk-off two-run homer on Sunday, powering the Rockies to a 9-7 victory over the Diamondbacks.

The Rockies clubbed four home runs in total on the afternoon, with Trevor Story's game-tying blast in the seventh and Reynolds' game winner proving to be the difference. He finished the afternoon 1-for-4 and also delivered a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning. He has been a very valuable addition to the Rockies lineup this season, slashing a healthy .291/.356/.462 with eight long balls and 31 RBI.
