The Colorado Rockies have called up 24-year old righty swinging SS/2B Josh Rutledge to replace Troy Tulowitzki on the active roster.  Rutledge played in 43 games earlier this year for the Rockies and he was 38 of 157 (.242 avg, .655 OPS) with 26 runs scored, 5 homers, 13 RBIs and 5 stolen bases.  He didn’t hang his head when he got sent to AAA.  He played in 17 games in AAA-ball after his demotion and he was 24 of 69 (.348 avg, 1.003 OPS) with 13 runs scored, 2 homers, 10 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  Rutledge will likely play a lot of SS until Tulowitzki is ready to return to action.

The Rockies have placed 28-year old righty swinging SS Troy Tulowitzki on the 15-day disabled list and he will miss the next 4-6 weeks due to a broken rib on his right side.  He has played in 61 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 77 for 222 (.347 avg, 1.048 OPS) with 41 runs scored, 16 homers and 51 RBIs.  Tulowitzki has now played in 805 games in his first 8 years with the Rockies and he is 899 of 3,035 (.296 avg, .881 OPS) with 512 runs scored, 146 homers, 521 RBIs and 53 stolen bases.  This is a HUGE blow to the Rockies as Tulowitzki was the best SS in all of baseball to this point in the 2013 season.
