The Rockies have lost 25-year old righty swinging shortstop Troy Tulowitzki for the next 6-8 weeks due to a broken left wrist. Tulowitzki has played in 62 games for the Rockies this season and he is 72 of 235 (.306 avg, .877 OPS) with 47 runs scored, 9 homers, 34 RBIs and 7 stolen bases. Clint Barmes will slide over from 2B to replace Tulo at SS. Barmes has played in 59 games for the Rockies this year and he is 43 of 192 (.224 avg, .650 OPS) with 15 runs scored, 4 homers and 31 RBIs. Barmes is a good defensive SS but the Rockies will miss Tulowitzki’s bat as Jonathan Herrera will be taking over at 2B for now. Herrera has played in 11 games for the Rockies so far this season and he is 3 for 23 (.130 avg, .297 OPS) with 2 runs scored. The Rockies might need to look outside the organization for a 2B or SS if Herrera isn’t up to the challenge.
