The Rockies have placed starting right fielder Brad Hawpe on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring. He has played in 42 games for the Rockies this season and he is 33 for 143 (.231 avg, .706 OPS) with 16 runs scored, 3 homers and 17 RBIs. Hawpe will be replaced in RF by Ryan Spilboroghs who has played in 37 games this season for the Rockies. He is 25 for 82 (.305 avg, .849 OPS) with 13 runs scored, 1 homer, 17 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. The Rockies have recalled 25-year old lefty swinging outfielder Seth Smith to replace Hawpe on the active roster. Smith has played in 1 game for the Rockies this season and he is 0 for 4. Smith has also played in 45 games in AAA this season and he is 51 for 159 (.321 avg, .951 OPS) with 36 runs scored, 6 homers, 30 RBIs and 11 stolen bases. Smith will likely do a decent job as he got some real key hits for the Rockies late last season and in the playoffs.
