The Rockies are expected to designate Brandon Barnes for assignment on Monday.

The club plans to call up top prospect David Dahl on Sunday, and it looks as though Barnes will be the odd-man out. The 30-year-old outfielder has hit just .220/.250/.320 with no homers, eight RBI and a 30/3 K/BB ratio in 109 plate appearances with the big league club this season.

The Rockies announced Sunday that top prospect David Dahl will be recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday.

The club gets the benefit of having a designated hitter for their series in Baltimore to begin the week, so they'll take a look at the sweet-swinging outfielder. With Carlos Gonzalez and Charlie Blackmon on the trade block, Dahl could be up with the big league club to stay. The 22-year-old is hitting .314/.394/.569 with 18 homers, 61 RBI and 17 stolen bases in 92 games between Double-A Hartford and Triple-A Albuquerque this season. He's immediately an interesting commodity in all mixed leagues.

Trevor Story slugged his 27th homer of the year Sunday in the Rockies' 7-2 victory over the Braves.

It was a two-run shot in the fourth inning off Atlanta rookie Tyrell Jenkins. Story also doubled and scored in the first inning, finishing 2-for-4 with two runs scored and two RBI. Only two middle infielders in major league history have registered 30-homer seasons by age 23: Alex Rodriguez and Nomar Garciaparra. Story is well on his way to becoming the third.

Tyler Chatwood walked eight batters but held the Braves scoreless over five innings Sunday for his ninth win of the season.

That pretty much sums up the current state of the Atlanta offense. Chatwood threw just 51 of his 97 pitches for strikes and put nine batters on base, but the Braves couldn't manage a run until the top of the seventh inning and fell 7-2. Chatwood stands 9-6 with a 3.65 ERA, 1.37 WHIP, and 66/46 K/BB ratio in 103 2/3 innings this season. He'll take on the Mets at home next.

Tyler Anderson turned in a quality start at Coors Field, yielding three runs in six innings to help the Rockies beat the Braves 8-4 on Saturday.

The rookie continues to impress. He struck out six batters, walked one and gave up eight base hits, none of which left the yard. It was his seventh start since being called up, and five of them have come at Coors Field. He is 3-3 with a 3.56 ERA. He has a 41/10 K/BB ratio in 48 innings. Perhaps most impressively, he has given up only four home runs, and two of those came on the road.

Trevor Story stuffed the box score on Saturday, going 4-for-4 with two home runs, five RBI, three runs scored and a stolen base.

He hit a two-run homer in the second inning, then added a solo shot in the eighth. The rookie now has 26 longballs on the season, which is a lot more than he ever hit in a minor league season. He is batting .272/.347/.580 with 63 runs, 67 RBI and seven steals. He has an extremely high strikeout rate, but that has not interfered with his stellar overall production yet.

Rockies recalled RHP Scott Oberg from Triple-A Albuquerque.

He'll take over for Chad Qualls, who was placed on the disabled list in a corresponding move due to an illness. Oberg has a 4.05 ERA and 1.43 WHIP in 13 1/3 innings this season at the MLB level.

Rockies placed RHP Chad Qualls on the 15-day disabled list with an illness.

There aren't any details available yet, but it's obviously more than just a cold or flu. Qualls, 37, holds a 5.61 ERA in 36 appearances this season with Colorado.

Jon Gray struck out eight in seven innings of one-run ball Friday in a victory over the Braves.

Gray has allowed two earned runs or fewer in 11 of his 17 starts this season, which is pretty incredible for a rookie pitcher in Coors. Overall, he's 6-4 with a 4.12 ERA and 111 strikeouts in 102 2/3 innings.
Jul 23 - 12:17 AM

Carlos Estevez worked out of a bases-loaded jam for his eighth save Friday against the Braves.

The Braves helped Estevez with a sac bunt after the first two reached in a 4-3 game. Estevez went on to walk Erick Aybar, but he was able to retire Chase d'Arnaud and Jace Peterson to end the game.
Jul 23 - 12:13 AM

Trevor Story collected his 24th homer Friday against the Braves.

Story has now matched Troy Tulowitzki's homer total from his rookie season in 2007. The only shortstops to hit more than 24 as rookies were Nomar Garciaparra (30 in 1997) and Cal Ripken Jr. (28 while splitting time between short and third in 1982). Those two were Rookie of the Year winners. Time will tell is Story will be, too.

Nolan Arenado is not in Thursday's lineup against the Braves.

It sounds like a routine day off for the All-Star third baseman. Cristhian Adames will start at third base and bat eighth against Mike Foltynewicz.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Arenado's absence is bad news for the DFS community, although it brightens the outlook for a few of the Rockies bats who find themselves in favorable lineup spots. Daniel Descalso will slide up to the fifth spot in the order, and while he's been thought of as a light-hitting infielder throughout his career, he's enjoying a .394 wOBA at home against RHP this season. Trevor Story slots into the clean-up spot behind Blackmon, LeMahieu and Gonzalez, giving him some added RBI opportunities.

Gerardo Parra (ankle) is hoping to begin a minor league rehab assignment in three days.

Parra suffered a minor setback earlier this week, but he's back to running and shagging and his ankle apparently feels good. The 29-year-old outfielder has been on the disabled list since June 14 with a left ankle sprain. He could be ready late next week if everything goes according to plan.

Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports the Giants are considering a trade for Rockies lefty Boone Logan.

But he's just one of a number of relief targets for San Francisco. Logan, a 31-year-old impending free agent, has held left-handed batters to a .164/.203/.262 batting line in 2016 and he boasts a 2.81 ERA in 38 appearances overall. He'd be a great bullpen rental for any contending team.

Jorge De La Rosa was horrendous in Wednesday's loss to the Rays, yielding nine runs (seven earned) on 11 hits over four innings.

De La Rosa held a 2-1 lead entering the third inning, but the Rays would erase that with three runs in the frame before jumping De La Rosa for five more in the fourth. He struck out just one on the afternoon. The ugly performance jumped his ERA from an already-tough 5.50 to a downright sad 6.07. The veteran southpaw also holds a 1.67 WHIP. He will try to rebound from this disaster when he hits the road for a date with the Orioles next time out.
