The Colorado Rockies place Ty Wigginton on the D.L.

The Rockies have placed veteran infielder Ty Wigginton on the 15-day disabled list due to a strained right oblique muscle. Wigginton has played in 20 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 14 for 60 (.233 avg, .692 OPS) with 5 runs scored, 2 homers, 10 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. The Rockies have recalled 26-year old lefty swinging 3B Ian Stewart to replace Wigginton on the active roster. Stewart had a rough start to the 2011 season for the Rockies before getting demoted to AAA. He has played in 12 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 2 for 26 (.077 avg, .220 OPS) with 2 runs scored, 0 homers, 0 RBIs and 1 stolen base. Stewart has also whiffed 11 times this year already often looking hopeless at the plate. But, Stewart might be ready to turn things around as he was ripping the ball in the minors. Stewart played in 11 games in AAA-ball this year and he was 13 for 36 (.361 avg, 1.250 OPS) with 8 runs scored, 3 homers, 13 RBIs and 1 stolen base. Stewart will likely share time at 3B until Wigginton is ready to return to action.
