The Rockies have sent 24-year old righty swinging 2B Josh Rutledge to AAA. He played in 43 games for the Rockies this year and he was 38 for 157 (.242 avg, .655 OPS) with 26 runs scored, 5 homers, 13 RBIs and 5 stolen bases. 24-year old righty swinging D.J. LaMahieu will take over as the starting 2B for the Rockies. He has played in 7 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 7 for 17 (.412 avg, .974 OPS) with 2 runs scored, 0 homers, 2 RBIs and 1 stolen base. Rutledge could work his way back to Denver if he plays well in the minors, but he better hope that LaMahieu doesn’t stake his claim to the starting 2B job in the mean time.
