The lefty allowed seven hits and a walk while striking out two. Butler owns a poor 5.45 ERA on the year along with a 1.79 WHIP and a 38/37 K/BB ratio over 69 1/3 innings. He'll attempt to defeat the Nationals in a road start next.

Jon Gray will make his major league debut on Tuesday night against the visiting Mariners.

There have been rumors for weeks that Gray was on the verge of a callup, and the well-built 23-year-old right-hander is now finally getting his shot. Gray, the second overall pick in the 2013 MLB Amateur Draft, owns a 2.90 ERA and 82 strikeouts over his last 80 2/3 innings at Triple-A Albuquerque. He's MLB-ready and one of the top young starters in baseball, though Coors Field can be hell on pitchers of all profiles. Fantasy owners might want to take it start-by-start with him out of the gate.

Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-4 with a double and triple in Saturday's win over the Cardinals.

With the big game, Blackmon's now hit six triples. He's slashing .292/.361/.464 with 12 homers and 44 RBI. The Rockies are playing out the string, but that's not Blackmon's fault, and he's hitting toward career highs in multiple offensive categories to this point in the season.

Jorge De La Rosa pitched well in Saturday's win over the Cardinals, yielding two runs on seven hits over 6 2/3 innings.

De La Rosa struck out four without walking a batter. Outside of solitary runs in the fourth and seventh innings, he kept the Cardinal offense at bay. He needed a start like this, as he had allowed six runs in each of his last two outings. De La Rosa holds a 4.87 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 92/46 K/BB ratio in 97 innings. Up next on the docket, a road start against the Nationals.

Rockies recalled OF Kyle Parker from Triple-A Albuquerque.

The move was expected after Corey Dickerson went down with a rib injury. Parker hasn't fared well in the big leagues, batting only .222 with 14 strikeouts in 27 lifetime at-bats. He did hit a single in his only at-bat of the season June 10 against St. Louis.
Aug 1 - 6:32 PM

Rockies recalled RHP Scott Oberg from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Oberg earned his promotion by allowing just one run over seven relief appearances for Albuquerque. The 25-year-old has struggled to keep the ball in the yard this season, surrendering eight homers in only 31 2/3 innings.

Rockies designated LHP Aaron Laffey for assignment.

The Rockies needed to clear a roster spot for Christian Bergman, who came off the disabled list on Saturday. It's the second time in the last month he's been DFA'd. The veteran owns a 3.68 ERA in three big league appearances this season.
Aug 1 - 6:07 PM

Rockies activated RHP Christian Bergman from the 15-day disabled list.

He missed about a month with a shoulder injury. Though he's only made one start this year, Bergman could be asked to replace Kyle Kendrick (shoulder inflammation) in the starting rotation. The right-hander has logged a frustrating 4.66 ERA in 19 outings this year.
Aug 1 - 6:02 PM

Rockies placed RHP Kyle Kendrick on the 15-day disabled list with shoulder inflammation.

He left Friday's start after throwing just 25 pitches. Kendrick could be dealing with a rotator cuff injury, which sometimes requires surgery. His roster spot will be absorbed by right-hander Scott Oberg.
Aug 1 - 5:57 PM

Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports that the Rockies are expected to recall Kyle Parker from Triple-A Albuquerque on Saturday.

He'll take the place of the injured Corey Dickerson. The 25-year-old is hitting .280/.326/.431 with nine homers and 58 RBI in 93 games at Triple-A, though he isn't likely to see enough playing time to be fantasy relevant outside of NL-only formats.
Aug 1 - 1:39 PM

Rockies placed OF Corey Dickerson on the 15-day disabled list with non-displaced fractures of two ribs.

An MRI exam revealed Friday that Dickerson had sustained non-displaced fractures of two ribs on his right side while diving for a line drive during Thursday's contest against the Cardinals. It's the third time that the outfielder has been forced to the disabled list this season. There is no clear timetable for his return at the moment.
