The Rockies’ AAA ballclub will be without 24-year old lefty swinging Tim Wheeler for the next month due to surgery to repair a broken right hand. Wheeler has played in 8 games in AAA-ball for the Rockies so far this year and he is 5 for 25 (.200 avg, .655 OPS) with 5 runs scored, 0 homers, 4 RBIs and 1 stolen base. This is a bad break for Wheeler as he came into this season as the Rockies’ #5 prospect according to Baseball America. Wheeler has played in 343 games in his first four years in the minors and he is 363 of 1,369 (.265 avg, .793 OPS) with 242 runs scored, 50 homers, 188 RBIs and 54 stolen bases.
