The Rockies continue to have big injury problems as Matt Holliday has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained hamstring. Holliday has played in 46 games this season for the Rockies and he is 60 for 187 (.321 avg, .952 OPS) with 33 runs scored, 8 homers, 26 RBIs and 8 stolen bases. Holliday will be replaced on the roster by 28-year old lefty swinging outfielder Cory Sullivan. Sullivan has played in 39 games in AAA ball this season and he is 45 for 158 (.285 avg, .777 OPS) with 30 runs scored, 3 homers, 18 RBIs and 5 stolen bases. Sullivan has played in 337 games in his major league career and he is 254 for 904 (.281 avg, .725 OPS) with 130 runs scored, 8 homers, 74 RBIs and 24 stolen bases. Even though Sullivan is a decent player the Rockies will miss Holliday’s bat big time as the injuries are really starting to mount on them.
