Rockies prospect David Dahl will miss the remainder of the 2015 season after suffering a lacerated spleen in a gruesome collision in the outfield in a Double-A game on Thursday.

Dahl underwent successful surgery on Thursday to repair the massive laceration. Due to the severity of the injury, it's likely that he'll have to wear a protective device for the rest of his career to protect his spleen.

Rockies prospect David Dahl suffered a concussion and broken rib in a nasty on-field collision.

Dahl might also have a ruptured spleen and will obviously be sidelined for an extended period. The 21-year-old outfielder was batting just .263/.290/.374 with three home runs through 43 games this season at Double-A New Britain, though he has tallied 11 stolen bases. Dahl was the 10th overall pick in the 2012 MLB Amateur Draft.

Kyle Kendrick allowed four runs but lasted 7 1/3 innings in Wednesday's 6-4 victory over the Reds.

Kendrick served up two homers and struck out only one, but he permitted just five hits in total and also issued just one free pass. The outing was his longest of the season in 10 trips to the mound. Kendrick will bring an ugly 6.38 ERA and 31/20 K/BB ratio over 60 2/3 innings into next week's start versus the Dodgers.

John Axford struck out one over a perfect inning while recording a save in Wednesday's win over the Reds.

He struck out Brandon Phillips and also got a flyout and groundout to preserve the two-run victory. Axford has been surprisingly effective for the Rockies, nailing down all eight of his save chances while posting a 0.75 ERA. He's allowed just two hits over his last seven appearances.
May 27 - 3:40 PM

Nolan Arenado singled and smacked a three-run homer in Wednesday's win over the Reds.

Arenado got things going in the first inning, taking Mike Leake deep with two outs and two aboard. The talented third baseman had been in a bit of a funk but has snapped out of it in a big way of late, going 9-for-16 with three dingers and 10 RBI over his last four games. He now has 10 home runs and 31 RBI for the season.

Jordan Lyles (toe) has been cleared to start on Sunday versus the Phillies.

Lyles had a start pushed back due a sprain in his left big toe, but he's already feeling much better. The right-hander sports an ugly 5.10 ERA, 1.49 WHIP and 28/19 K/BB ratio over 47 2/3 innings this season for the Rockies.

Nick Hundley is not in the Rockies' lineup Wednesday.

It's simply a routine day off. Michael McKenry is at catcher in Hundley's place.
May 27 - 10:12 AM

Nick Hundley hit his fifth home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Reds.

Hundley provided the only offense on the night for the Rox, as his fifth inning solo homer was one of the team's four hits. Hundley actually had two of them, as he finished 2-for-3 with the blast. Hundley how has five homers and 16 RBI to go with a .317/.356/.504 line as the team's everyday backstop.

Chris Rusin held the Reds to one run over seven innings in a no-decision on Tuesday.

Rusin was pressed into action when Jorge De La Rosa was scratched with a cut on his pitching hand. In De La Rosa's place, Rusin yielded just four hits and four walks, striking out five in his season debut. He didn't factor in the decision -- the game remained tied 1-1 after both starters were out of the game -- but it was still a good showing for the 28-year-old. De La Rosa isn't expected to miss any more time, so Rusin's future in the rotation is still unclear.
May 26 - 10:02 PM

Jordan Lyles' next start has been pushed back to due a sprain in his left big toe.

But the right-hander is fully expected to avoid the disabled list. Lyles owns a 5.10 ERA, 1.49 WHIP, and 28/19 K/BB ratio in 47 2/3 innings this season for the Rockies and shouldn't be trusted in any fantasy league.
May 26 - 5:15 PM

Jorge De La Rosa (hand) expects to take his next turn in the Rockies' rotation on Saturday.

De La Rosa had to be scratched Tuesday in Cincinnati with a cut on his pitching hand, but it's no big deal. Chris Rusin is filling in against the Reds and then De La Rosa will be back at it Saturday in Philadelphia.

Rockies optioned LHP Yohan Flande to Triple-A Albuquerque.

The move clears a spot for Chris Rusin on the active roster. Flande, 29, has allowed six runs over 7 1/3 innings with the Rockies this season to go along with a 3/3 K/BB ratio.
May 26 - 3:30 PM

Rockies recalled LHP Chris Rusin from Triple-A Albuquerque.

He'll start Tuesday against the Reds with Jorge De La Rosa sidelined due to a cut on his pitching hand. Rusin has an ugly 6.29 ERA over six starts and one relief appearance this season in Triple-A and isn't a fantasy option.
May 26 - 3:28 PM

Jorge De La Rosa was scratched from Tuesday's start against the Reds after suffering a cut on his pitching hand.

Thomas Harding of MLB.com writes that the cut developed before his most recent start. No word on how long he'll be sidelined. The Rockies have called up Chris Rusin to start in his place.
May 26 - 3:25 PM

Nolan Arenado finished 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in the Rockies' 5-4 win over the Reds on Monday.

Arenado laced an RBI single in the top of the first inning, reached on an infield single in the top of the second, slugged a solo home run in the top of the fourth, and then drove in the go-ahead run for the Rockies with a sacrifice fly in the top of the ninth. Arenado also had a huge day on Sunday against the Giants and is emerging out of his mid-May slump with bang after bang.
