On Wednesday, the Colorado Rockies announced that SS/2B Josh Rutledge has been recalled from AAA. During his 5 games with Colorado Springs, Rutledge posted a respectable .389 average and a strong 1.111 OPS. After being named the starting 2B for the 2013 season, Rutledge struggled and was eventually demoted to AAA Colorado Springs. Rutledge was one of the finals cuts made before last week’s season opener.
To make room on the roster, the Rockies demoted reserve pitcher Wilton Lopez to AAA Colorado Springs. Lopez fell apart in the eight inning on Tuesday allowing 6 runs, including 3 homeruns, over 0.2 innings.
