Josh Rutledge Is Ready for a Big Second Half

When Colorado’s Troy Tulowitzki was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained hip flexor, fantasy teams and the Rockies knew their clubs would take a hit. Luckily for Colorado, they had a replacement in-house who has some offensive skill of his own. Hopefully, your fantasy team had him as a handcuff already. Josh Rutledge, who can play second base, third base and shortstop...

Creeper of the Week: Get Out of Your Rutledge With Some Josh-ing

Hello Razzballers! Happy Sunday before the non-waiver trade deadline. *Pops party popper* Today I bring you a Creeper that feels more like a buy, but because Josh Rutledge is only 7.4% owned, he qualifies for my purposes. This is the time of the year that we need to make moves fast, cut the dead weight and change how we value our players ROS. When an opportunity arises we need to...

Fantasy Roundup: Shortstop Replacements

Rutledge may not have Tulo’s bat, but he has his at-bats!

Colorado’s Canny Outfield Platoon

This spring, the Colorado Rockies made the unusual decision to break camp with six outfielders. If any roster had the right personnel to overload in the outfield, it was the Rockies. Infielders Josh Rutledge, DJ LeMahieu and Charlie Culberson have plenty of utility (Rutledge did not make the club out of spring training). Backup catcher Jordan Pacheco […]

Fantasy Roundup: Rockies Choose Second Baseman

Full playing time in Colorado turns an uninteresting player (LeMahieu) into an intriguing option (AP Photo/Barry Gutierrez) Josh Rutledge was optioned to the minors, which means DJ LeMahieu is the Rockies starting second baseman.

Rockies' injury updates on Josh Rutledge, Jhoulys Chacin and Justin Morneau

Although the Colorado Rockies won just 74 games in 2013, it marked a 10-win improvement over 2012.  In order to continue the positive trend in 2014, the Rockies will need to stay relatively injury-free.  That hasn't quite worked out so far this Spring Training as second basemen Josh Rutledge, first baseman Justin Morneau and pitcher Jhoulys Chacin are all dealing with injury...
