Justin Morneau finished 3-for-4 with a home run and six RBI in Wednesday's 16-2 rout of the Dodgers.

Colorado absolutely pounded Dodgers spot starter Carlos Frias, with Morneau kicking off the fun on a three-run blast in the bottom of the first inning. He also hit a two-run single to finish off the scoring in that eight-run opening frame before doubling in the bottom of the fourth and collecting his sixth RBI of the afternoon on a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the fifth. The veteran first baseman has an excellent .320/.363/.497 batting line with 16 home runs and 79 RBI in 127 games this season.

Jorge De La Rosa fired six scoreless innings Wednesday in the Rockies' defeat of the Dodgers.

De La Rosa was staked to an eight-run lead after the first inning and went into cruise control, yielding only two hits and two walks while fanning three. He's now 14-11 on the season with a 4.14 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 132/63 K/BB ratio in 178 1/3 innings. The lefty will finish up his 2014 with a road start against the Padres.

Rockies recalled RHP Eddie Butler from Double-A Tulsa.

Butler will start for the Rockies on Saturday. The righty struggled in his major league debut back in June and hasn't posted overly impressive numbers in the minors this season (3.99 ERA, just 69 strikeouts over 117 1/3 innings). However, he remains a top pitching prospect and might be worth a flier in NL-only formats.

Corey Dickerson went 2-for-4 with a triple, home run and four RBI in the Rockies' 10-4 rout of the Dodgers on Tuesday.

In the fourth inning, Dickerson connected for a two-run shot, his 23rd home run of the season, off Dodgers starter Dan Haren. He added a two-run triple in the eighth inning, his fifth triple of the season. The 25-year-old has emerged as an offensive star this season, batting .307/.360/.566 with 73 RBI and 70 runs scored overall.
Sep 17 - 12:20 AM

Drew Stubbs had a hit, two walks and three runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Dodgers.

Stubbs scored on a fourth inning home run by Corey Dickerson, also crossing the plate in the sixth and eighth innings. The 29-year-old has 63 runs scored this year to go with a .288/.338/.481 line.
Sep 17 - 12:15 AM

Justin Morneau went 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI and two runs scored in the Rockies' win over the Dodgers Tuesday.

Morneau drove in a run with a groundout in the first inning, singling and scoring in the sixth. He later doubled and scored in the eighth as well, his first double since late August as he's managed an intercostal injury. Morneau is looking to finish strong after a really nice rebound year for the 33-year-old, who is hitting .316/.361/.486 with 73 RBI.
Sep 17 - 12:12 AM

Tyler Matzek surrendered 11 hits but managed to hold the Dodgers to two runs over 5 1/3 innings in a win Tuesday.

Matzek managed to escape danger until the sixth inning, when four hits and a run spelled the end of his night. The left-hander struck out six before exiting. It wasn't his strongest outing, but the win was his fourth in his last five starts to bring his record to 6-10. He hasn't allowed more than three runs in a start since August 13. Matzek will look to keep that going Sunday against the Diamondbacks.
Sep 16 - 11:57 PM

Nolan Arenado has been diagnosed with pneumonia.

The third baseman is home resting while the Rockies continue a three-game series against the Dodgers. It's not clear when Arenado might return to action.
Sep 16 - 5:39 PM

Nolan Arenado (chest) is out of the Rockies' starting lineup again on Tuesday night.

Arenado left Sunday's series finale in St. Louis with a chest contusion and did not do any pregame work on Monday or Tuesday. Charlie Culberson will start at third base Tuesday night against the visiting Dodgers.
Sep 16 - 5:25 PM

Wilin Rosario went 3-for-4 and homered against the Dodgers on Monday.

It's worth wondering what's in store for Rosario after his disappointing offensive season; despite all of his success in 2012 and 2013, the Rockies tried to sign Brian McCann last winter with the idea of moving Rosario out from behind the plate. There won't really be anywhere to move Rosario this winter, so he'll either remain a catcher or possibly get traded. It'd be a case of selling low for the Rockies, though.
Sep 16 - 12:30 AM

Eddie Butler will be recalled to start on September 23 against the Padres.

Butler was optioned to the minors in July after recovering from his shoulder injury, but the Rockies are now ready to give him another shot. It's not clear whether he'll be given just the one start or an addition one before the end of the season. Butler was limited to just 122 2/3 frames between the majors and minors because of the shoulder ailment.
Sep 15 - 10:16 PM

Nolan Arenado will undergo an MRI on his chest Monday.

Arenado left Sunday's game with what the Rockies referred to as a chest contusion. The club doesn't expect the injury to be serious, but we won't know for sure until the MRI comes back. Consider Arenado day-to-day until further notice.
Sep 15 - 7:14 PM

Yohan Flande will start on Thursday against the Diamondbacks in place of Franklin Morales.

Flande holds a 5.04 ERA over 50 innings for the Rockies this season, but the club wants to give him another look in the rotation. The left-hander can safely be avoided in fantasy leagues.
Sep 15 - 6:16 PM

Rockies recalled INF Cristhian Adames from Double-A Tulsa.

Adames, 23, batted .288/.345/.368 with three home runs, 52 RBI, and 12 steals over 126 games this season between Double- and Triple-A. He was already on the 40-man roster, so the Rockies will bring him up as an extra infielder for the final two weeks.
Sep 15 - 5:39 PM

Justin Morneau (intercostal) is back in Monday's lineup against the Dodgers.

Morneau exited Friday's game with left intercostal soreness, but it's not a major concern. The veteran first baseman is hitting .315 on the year, just two points behind Pittsburgh's Josh Harrison for the National League lead.
