Jorge De La Rosa left Tuesday's start in the sixth inning against the Giants with a left thumb contusion.

The injury occurred when the De La Rosa fouled off a pitch in the top of the sixth inning. He walked a batter and coughed up a two-run Buster Posey homer in the bottom half the frame before getting pulled for Matt Belisle. JDLR is the very rare pitcher indeed who'd prefer to work in Coors Field if given the choice. He'd gone 1-3 with a 6.09 ERA in his last six road starts, and entered this game 9-2 with a 3.19 ERA at home, and 4-6 with a 5.35 ERA on the road. As odd as it is to say, he's a stream option in Denver, but generally a stay-away on the road. Unfortunately, De La Rosa stays on the road next time around in Arizona. We'd expect him to be good to go, but De La Rosa will no doubt be evaluated further on Wednesday.

LaTroy Hawkins hurled a scoreless ninth inning to earn his 21st save against the Giants on Monday.

The Hawk made things interesting, losing Mike Morse on a full count to walk the leadoff batter. The next batter, Joe Panik, hit the ball on the screws, but Charlie Blackmon snagged it in right field, and then Hawkins struck out both Gregor Blanco and Brandon Crawford to end the affair. The Rockies are thrilled with their return on investment from the 41-year-old (21 saves, 2.74 ERA, 1.13 WHIP) and value his veteran presence. Colorado plans to pick up his $2.25 million club option for 2015.

Tyler Matzek earned his third win, allowing two runs over seven innings in Monday's win over the Giants.

Matzek struck out seven and walked two. The lefty allowed eight hits, including a solo homer to Andrew Susac. He came into this game 0-4 with a 7.89 ERA in four August starts, so you can guess why we're hesitant to trust him. Matzek (3-9, 5.14 ERA) travels to Arizona this weekend.

Wilin Rosario (wrist) remained out of the Rockies' lineup Monday.

Rosario has now missed the last three games with a sore wrist. He had been slated to test things out in the batting cage on Monday, but it apparently didn't go well enough for the backstop to return to action. Michael McKenry is catching for the Rockies again on Monday.

Wilin Rosario (wrist) will hit in the batting cages on Monday, and if all goes well will return to the Rockies starting lineup.

The slugging backstop has been bothered by the injury throughout the weekend, conceding playing time to Michael McKenry behind the dish. Fantasy owners should expect him back early in the week.

Nolan Arenado continued his hot hitting on Sunday, going 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in the Rockies' 7-4 victory over the Marlins.

Arenado hit the two-run blast in the first inning, his 14th home run of the year. He's had a torrid August, batting .388 (31-for-80) with five homers, 12 RBI and 16 runs scored. He's hitting .308/.350/.522 in what has been a breakout season offensively.
Aug 24 - 8:50 PM

Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Marlins.

Blackmon has been doing a good job setting the table over the last week, scoring eight runs in his last six games. He went 7-for-13 in the weekend series against the Marlins, bringing his line up to .291/.340/.438. He's not the All-Star he was in the first half, but Blackmon should remain a productive player through the end of the season.
Aug 24 - 8:46 PM

Drew Stubbs went 3-for-5 with an RBI double and a stolen base in Sunday's win over the Marlins.

Stubbs scored on Nolan Arenado's home run in the first inning, and he added an RBI double in the sixth inning. The stolen base was his 16th of the season. With Carlos Gonzalez out for the year and Michael Cuddyer on the disabled list, Stubbs should get regular at-bats and is a deep mixed league option down the stretch.

LaTroy Hawkins tossed a clean inning to earn his 20th save against the Marlins on Sunday.

Hawkins gave up three hits and a run in a non-save situation Saturday, so it was a nice rebound for the 41-year-old. This marks the third season in his long career that Hawkins has reached 20 saves. The right-hander owns a 2.80 ERA and 1.13 WHIP through 45 innings this season.
Aug 24 - 8:31 PM

Christian Bergman allowed four runs on nine hits over 6 1/3 innings in a win over the Marlins on Sunday.

Bergman wasn't great -- he walked two and struck out just one on the afternoon -- but his Rockies teammates picked him up for his first career victory. The right-hander has a 6.75 ERA through four starts this year and is a non-entity in fantasy leagues.
Aug 24 - 8:26 PM

Rockies transferred OF Carlos Gonzalez from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears space on the 40-man roster for the return of Christian Bergman. CarGo is out for the season following surgery on his left patella tendon.
Aug 24 - 2:17 PM

Rockies activated RHP Christian Bergman from the 60-day disabled list.

He'll rejoin the Rockies' rotation on Sunday against the Marlins. Bergman held a 7.20 ERA over three starts before fracturing his hand and can be ignored in fantasy leagues.
Aug 24 - 2:16 PM

Rockies placed OF Michael Cuddyer on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

Cuddyer insisted on Friday that he would not be placed on the disabled list, but obviously he hasn't progressed as hoped. It's the third trip to the DL he's made this season. Christian Bergman, who is starting on Sunday, is replacing Cuddyer on the roster.
Aug 24 - 2:11 PM

Michael Cuddyer drew a walk as a pinch-hitter in Saturday's extra-innings win over the Marlins.

Cuddyer hasn't started a game since Sunday due to a sore hamstring, but obviously he was feeling well enough to pinch-hit. He's expected to avoid the disabled list.
Aug 24 - 4:41 AM

Corey Dickerson hit a game-tying homer in the ninth and delivered a game-ending single in the 13th as the Rockies beat the Marlins 5-4 on Saturday.

Dickerson went 4-for-6 in all. The homer, his 19th, came off Steve Cishek to even the score at 4-4. The game-winner came after Nolan Arenado doubled to open the bottom of the 13th. Dickerson has been the Rockies' second best player this year, hitting .322/.375/.587 with 61 RBI in just 332 at-bats. That's none too shabby for a guy who was sent down to Triple-A briefly in April.
