Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by chinmusic on Friday 4 July 2008 at 7:29 pm

The Rockies have placed starting 1B Todd Helton on the 15-day disabled list with a sore back. Helton has played in 81 games for the Rockies this season and he is 79 for 297 (.266 avg, .784 OPS) with 39 runs scored, 7 homers and 29 RBIs. Helton will be replaced in the starting lineup by Jeff Baker. Baker has played in 55 games for the Rockies this season and he is 41 for 152 (.270 avg, .798 OPS) with 27 runs scored, 6 homers and 28 RBIs. The Rockies have recalled 1B Joe Koshansky from AAA to replace Helton on the roster. Koshansky has played in 82 games in AAA ball this season and he is 86 for 306 (.281 avg, .929 OPS) with 51 runs scored, 18 homers and 78 RBIs. But, he has also whiffed an alarming 108 times this season and he could have some problems with major league pitching.

Ryan Spilboroghs has done a great job this season for the Colorado Rockies

Ryan Spilboroghs is good enough to start for a lot of teams in the majors but he’s a 4th outfielder in Colorado. He did a great job subbing for Matt Holliday and Brad Hawpe when they were injured. He is back to his bench job but the Rockies don’t miss a beat when giving one of the regulars a day off. Spilboroghs has played in 66 games for the Rockies this season and he is 48 for 164 (.293 avg, .844 OPS) with 25 runs scored, 4 homers, 26 RBIs and 6 stolen bases. If the Rockies move an outfielder in a trade soon, Spilboroghs will move into the starting lineup full time.

The Colorado Rockies have placed lefty starting pitcher Jeff Francis on the 15-day disabled list with left shoulder inflammation. Even though Francis wasn’t pitching well this is a pretty big blow to the Rockies’ pitching staff. Francis has started 17 games this season for the Rockies and he is 3-7 with a 5.67 ERA and a 1.55 WHIP. The Rockies have recalled veteran lefty Mark Redman from AAA to replace Francis in the rotation. Redman pitched in 7 games (6 starts) earlier in the season for the Rockies and he was 2-3 with a 7.84 ERA and a 1.71 WHIP. Redman did pitch better in AAA so maybe there is a ray of hope with him. He started 9 games in AAA ball and he was 5-2 with a 4.64 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP. If Redman doesn’t pitch better this time around the Rockies could be in deep trouble.
