Rockies manager Walt Weiss said Wednesday that pitching prospect Jeff Hoffman is "pretty close" to earning a call-up.

One of the key pieces in last season's Troy Tulowitzki trade with the Blue Jays, Hoffman has put up a 3.49 ERA and 88/29 K/BB ratio over 87 2/3 innings in a tough pitching environment at Triple-A Albuquerque this year. He'd obviously be entering another tough environment should the Rockies promote him soon, although the talented 23-year-old might be worth a look in deeper leagues. Eddie Butler's spot in Colorado's rotation appears to be the most vulnerable.

Tyler Chatwood (back) will make a rehab start with High-A Modesto on Thursday.

Assuming it goes off without a hitch, Chatwood is likely to rejoin the Rockies' rotation next Tuesday. He's missed a couple weeks of action with a strained lower back.

Daniel Descalso went 3-for-3 with two RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Descalso picked up an RBI single in the fourth and an RBI double in the ninth. The latter drew the Rockies to within 5-3, but they would not score again. While he has seen just 52 at-bats this season, the utility infielder has done a nice job with his opportunities and is hitting .385/.484/.519 with one homer and 16 RBI. Still, no fantasy upside exists here.

Tyler Anderson pitched respectably in Wednesday's loss to the Blue Jays, allowing three runs (two earned) on eight hits over six innings.

Anderson struck out six and walked two on the afternoon. Only a high pitch count -- 106 pitches (76 strikes) over six innings -- prevented him from lasting deeper into the game. The 26-year-old southpaw has yet to allow more than two earned runs in a start through three outings. At this point, he has done enough to earn consideration in deeper mixed-league formats. He will look to continue this nice run in a road start against the Giants next time he toes the rubber.

Rockies OF prospect Omar Carrizales clobbered five hits Tuesday in a win for High-A Modesto.

He singled three times and added a pair of triples. Carrizales has been tearing it up over his last 10 games. During that span, he's hit .366 with two homers and six RBI. The 21-year-old is tied for the league lead in triples with eight and is also seventh in the California League with a .301 batting average. He's recorded nine steals on 11 attempts this year.

DJ LeMahieu (knee) is out of the Rockies' lineup again Wednesday.

LeMahieu appeared as a defensive replacement Tuesday and hoped to make it back to the starting lineup Wednesday, but the Rockies apparently don't want to rush things. Daniel Descalso will continue to fill in at second base.
Jun 29 - 1:13 PM

Trevor Story is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Blue Jays.

Story went 0-for-4 in his return to the lineup Tuesday. With the quick turnaround, the Rockies are likely just being cautious about his injured finger. Cristhian Adames is playing shortstop and batting second.
Jun 29 - 1:12 PM

DJ LeMahieu (knee) entered Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays as a defensive replacement and struck out in his lone at-bat.

LeMahieu suffered a left knee contusion Sunday and has been held out of the starting lineup for the past two games. He's hoping to return Wednesday.
Jun 29 - 8:41 AM

Ryan Raburn was scratched from the Rockies starting lineup on Tuesday.

Raburn apparently came down with an illness shortly before game time, so he'll sit this one out. Charlie Blackmon entered the lineup in his place and will bat leadoff, while Brandon Barnes shifts over to left field.
Jun 28 - 7:27 PM

Trevor Story (finger) has returned to the Rockies starting lineup on Tuesday.

Story tested out his injured finger before the game and it appears to have held up just fine. He'll bat second in a premium matchup at home against Blue Jays' southpaw JA Happ.
Jun 28 - 7:00 PM

Charlie Blackmon is not in the Rockies starting lineup for Tuesday night's tilt against the Blue Jays.

There's nothing wrong with the speedy center fielder, it's just a routine day of rest. Brandon Barnes will start in his place against JA Happ and the Jays.
Jun 28 - 6:40 PM

D.J. LeMahieu (knee) said Tuesday that he's feeling much better and expects to return to the starting lineup on Wednesday.

LeMahieu was forced to leave Sunday's game with a left knee contusion and sat out on Monday as a precautionary measure. It's likely that Daniel Descalso will fill in again on Tuesday against JA Happ and the Blue Jays.
Jun 28 - 5:27 PM

Trevor Story will test out his injured finger by throwing during batting practice on Tuesday, and if all feels well he'll be in the Rockies starting lineup.

Otherwise, he'll get another day of rest with Cristhian Adames likely in his stead. Story sustained a bruised right middle finger when he was drilled by a pitch in the ninth inning on Sunday.
Jun 28 - 5:23 PM

Carlos Gonzalez went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer and a walk to lead the Rockies to a 9-5 win over the Blue Jays on Monday.

In the 31 days since May 27, Carlos Gonzalez has 11 homers, 10 doubles and 31 RBI. It's the kind of run that figures to put him on the NL All-Star team for the first time since 2013 and the third time in his career.
Jun 28 - 12:30 AM

Jon Gray pitched seven innings and allowed four runs Monday in a win over the Blue Jays.

Gray was allowed to start on four days' rest tonight despite complaining of fatigue and a heavy arm last time out. He was plenty effective, too, striking out eight and walking none. He's lasted seven innings in six of his 13 starts.
