The Rockies have placed starting shortstop Troy Tulowitzki on the 15-day disabled list with a right hand laceration. He injured his hand by slamming his bat on the ground in anger after a poor at bat. Tulowitzki’s 2008 season has been a nightmare as he has played in 39 games for the Rockies this season and he is 25 for 151 (.166 avg, .544 OPS) with 17 runs scored, 3 homers and 16 RBIs. This will cause a domino effect in the Rockies’ infield as Clint Barmes will take over at shortstop with Jeff Baker moving to 2B and rookie Joe Koshansky starting at 1B. Barmes has played in 47 games for the Rockies this season and he is 54 for 160 (.338 avg, .926 OPS) with 22 runs scored, 5 homers, 22 RBIs and 3 stolen bases.
