Troy Tulowitzki is out of the starting lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Dodgers.

Daniel Descalso will start at shortstop. Look for Tulo to play in the nightcap.

Kyle Kendrick was hit hard in a loss to the Dodgers on Monday, serving up six runs (five earned) over 5 1/3 innings.

Kendrick allowed 10 hits, two of which were home runs, while walking two and striking out one. Both homers came in the second inning via Andre Ethier and Jimmy Rollins. The Dodgers then put on their first five batters against Kendrick in the sixth on four hits and an error en route to a six-run frame. Kendrick and Coors Field hasn't been a good match, as expected. He has an ugly 6.55 ERA, 1.47 WHIP, and 32/22 K/BB ratio in 66 innings. Kendrick will face the Marlins at home in his next start.

Nolan Arenado went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Monday's loss to the Dodgers.

Arenado has now homered six times in his last eight games, giving him 13 on the season with 37 RBI and a .289/.330/.578. One could say he's seeing the ball well right now.

Rockies outfield prospect David Dahl underwent a splenectomy on Monday.

Had Dahl waited for his lacerated spleen to heal he likely would be missed the remainder of the season. Having it removed means he'll make it back this year, although it's unclear when that is likely to happen. Ranked before the season by Baseball America as the No. 22 prospect in the game, Dahl has batted .269/.296/.379 with three homers and 14 steals at Double-A New Britain this season.

Corey Dickerson (foot) ran the bases on Monday.

Dickerson was placed on the disabled list two weeks ago due to plantar fasciitis in his left foot, an ailment that had bothered him throughout the season. Although running the bases is a nice step, there remains no timetable for his return. Dickerson has hit .306/.342/.523 with five homers over 33 games this season.

Jordan Lyles will visit a foot specialist on Tuesday to see if he might need surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left big toe.

The right-hander has already been placed on the disabled list, but obviously his absence will be extended if surgery is required. "If I have to have surgery, I don’t know how long I will be out," said Lyles. The righty holds a 5.14 ERA in 10 starts this season.

David Hale will be recalled to start during Tuesday's doubleheader versus the Dodgers.

Hale pitched well in a spot start last month, allowing two earned runs over 6 2/3 against the Giants. With Jordan Lyles (toe) going on the disabled list, he could wind up earning more starts.
Jun 1 - 5:12 PM

Rockies recalled RHP Tommy Kahnle from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Kahnle earned the promotion after posting a 3.68 ERA with 26 strikeouts over 22 innings at Albuquerque. He'll be used in middle relief.
Jun 1 - 5:07 PM

Rockies placed RHP Jordan Lyles on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained left big toe.

Lyles had to have an outing pushed back due to the injury and then aggravated it during Sunday's game. It's not clear at this point how long he'll be sidelined. Tommy Kahnle has taken his spot on the roster.
Jun 1 - 5:06 PM

Carlos Gonzalez is not in the Rockies' lineup Monday.

He's sitting versus lefty Clayton Kershaw. Brandon Barnes is in right field Monday in CarGo's place.
Jun 1 - 4:38 PM

Rockies pitching prospect Jon Gray surrendered four hits and two walks over seven shutout frames Sunday in a no-decision for Triple-A Albuquerque.

It's more of the same for Gray, who has been a completely different pitcher since his rough opening month (0-3 in April). He's allowed three runs or fewer in each of his last six starts, cutting his ERA from 10.70 to 5.40 during that stretch. The former first-round pick limited opponents to a .243 average in May. At this rate, the 23-year-old should make his big league debut before the end of the season.
Jun 1 - 4:23 PM

Scott Oberg picked up his first career save, pitching a scoreless ninth inning in Sunday's victory against the Phillies.

Regular closer John Axford was given a day of rest after throwing 40 pitches in the previous two days against the Phillies. Oberg got consecutive ground outs from Maikel Franco and Cody Asche. He then worked around a two-out Odubel Herrera single by getting Carlos Ruiz to fly out to end the game. Save opportunities should continue to be rare occurrences for Oberg barring further injuries within the Rockies' bullpen.
May 31 - 4:44 PM

Nolan Arenado hit his 12th home run of the season as the Rockies bested the Phillies on Sunday.

His first-inning two-run home run off of Jerome Williams served as his only hit in four at-bats. Arenado now has five home runs in his last seven games, giving him 12 on the year along with 35 RBI and a .284/.326/.563 triple-slash line.
May 31 - 4:41 PM

D.J. LeMahieu went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run as the Rockies completed a sweep of the Phillies on Sunday.

LeMahieu extended the Rockies' lead to 4-1 in the fifth inning, ripping a two-run home run to left field off of Jerome Williams. The 26-year-old is quietly having a very productive season, batting .335/.385/.441 with three home runs and 25 RBI. He also has five stolen bases -- albeit in nine attempts -- giving him some additional fantasy value.
May 31 - 4:39 PM

Jordan Lyles exited Sunday's start versus the Phillies after appearing to aggravate his left big toe sprain.

Lyles had to skip out of the way of a line drive back up the middle and looked to injure his toe again in doing so. It's the third time in his last four starts that he's been forced from the game early due to injury.
