The Rockies have lost 36-year old righty swinging catcher Ramon Hernandez for the rest of the 2012 season due to a ruptured hamstring. Hernandez was expected to be the starting catcher for the Rockies in 2012, but he only played in 52 games this year in which he was 40 for 184 (.217 avg, .601 OPS) with 16 runs scored, 5 homers and 28 RBIs. He has now played in 1,509 games in his first 14 years in the majors and he is 1,335 of 5,057 (.264 avg, .744 OPS) with 576 runs scored, 166 homers, 751 RBIs and 8 stolen bases. Hernandez will return in 2013 as the Rockies’ backup catcher as 23-year old Wilin Rosario has earned the starting job with his play this year.

The Rockies have placed 33-year old righty swinging OF/1B Michael Cuddyer back on the 15-day disabled as he aggravated his strained right oblique muscle.  Cuddyer has played in 101 games for the Rockies this year and he is 93 of 358 (.260 avg, .806 OPS) with 53 runs scored, 16 homers, 58 RBIs and 8 stolen bases.  The Rockies have called up 27-year old righty swinging outfielder Andrew Brown to replace Cuddyer on the active roster.  Brown played in 11 games earlier this year for the Rockies and he was 5 for 24 (.208 avg, .522 OPS) with 1 run scored and 3 RBIs.  The Rockies should wait until Cuddyer is 100% before bringing him back this time around.

Harris gave up 35 hits and walked 13 batters in 52 innings in the minors this year while whiffing 66 batters, which is downright impressive. Harris has now pitched in 187 games (0 starts) in his first six years in the minors and he is 13-13 with 11 saves, a 2.66 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP.

Chatwood pitched in 7 games (0 starts) earlier this year for the Rockies and he was 1-1 with 1 save, a 7.62 ERA and a 2.00 WHIP.
