The Colorado Rockies have sent 28-year old lefty swinging 1B Ben Paulsen to AAA. Paulsen has played in 29 games for the Rockies this year and he is 17 of 66 (.258 avg, .679 OPS) with 6 runs scored, 1 homer and 10 RBIs. He has now played in 176 games in his first three years with the Rockies and he is 127 of 454 (.280 avg, .790 OPS) with 56 runs scored, 16 homers, 69 RBIs and 1 stolen base. This likely means that Mark Reynolds will take over as the full time 1B, as he had been platooning with Paulsen. Reynolds has played in 29 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 31 of 92 (.337 avg, .881 OPS) with 16 runs scored, 2 homers and 12 RBIs. The Rockies have activated 29-year old lefty swinging infielder Daniel Descalso off the D.L. He played in 4 games in AAA-ball on a rehab assignment and he was 6 for 15 (.400 avg, .967 OPS) with 1 run scored and 1 RBI. Descalso played in 101 games for the Rockies last year (his first with the team) and he was 38 of 185 (.205 avg, .607 OPS) with 22 runs scored, 5 homers, 22 RBIs and 1 stolen base.
