The Rockies have placed shortstop Clint Barmes on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained right knee. Barmes has played in 39 games for the Rockies this season and he is 46 for 134 (.343 avg, .958 OPS) with 15 runs scored, 5 homers, 20 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. This was a bad break for both Barmes and the Rockies as he was doing a great job filling in for the injured Troy Tulowitzki. Barmes will be replaced as the starting shortstop by Omar Quintanilla. Quintanilla has played in 17 games this season for the Rockies and he is 13 for 50 (.260 avg, .635 OPS) with 8 runs scored and 2 RBIs. The Rockies have recalled infielder Ian Stewart to replace Barmes on the active roster. Stewart has played in 1 game this season for the Rockies and he is 0 for 3. Stewart has also played in 46 games in AAA ball this season and he is 48 for 171 (.281 avg, .988 OPS) with 43 runs scored, 12 homers, 43 RBIs and 6 stolen bases. Stewart is a 3B by trade but he will likely get some P.T. at 2B for the Rockies as Garrett Atkins is entrenched as the starting 3B of the Rockies.
