(5/13/13) Rockies second baseman Josh Rutledge wanted to make things competitive on Monday during a 9-1 loss at Chicago.

(5/9/13) Rockies second baseman Josh Rutledge has hit well over the past couple games, and is feeling more comfortable at the plate, according to the Denver Post.
In his last eight games, Rutledge has 13 hits. Rutledge hit just .213 through April, but has managed to raise his average to .252 with his hot streak. Rutledge said things were "starting to fall into place" at the plate, and believes his luck may have turned. "At the beginning of the year, I hit some balls hard and they just didn't find a hole. That always turns around in baseball."

(5/4/13) Rockies shortstop Josh Rutledge extended his hitting streak to four games during Colorado's 7-4 loss to Tampa Bay on Friday night. Rutledge went 2 for 5 with a solo homer off Rays starter Matt Moore to give him three multi-hit outings during his hitting streak.
Prior to his current hot stretch, he had gone hitless over three games to drop his batting average to .200, but has since improved that mark to .243. The 24-year-old also ranks seventh in the National League with 21 runs scored.
|Josh Rutledge's prospect status soared in 2011, when he blistered California League pitching for a .346 batting average. Last season, he proved that his performance was not just the by-product of playing in an extremely hitter-friendly circuit, as he hit .306 with 13 home runs in 87 Texas League games. A groin injury to shortstop Troy Tulowitzki ultimately forced Rutledge to be recalled in mid-July, and he responded by hitting .345 with seven home runs through the end of August. Rutledge's power and ability to make contact waned over the season's final month, raising concerns about whether he can sustain his initial level of production over a full season. With Tulowitzki returning, Rutledge will move over to second base, but with that position being no deeper than shortstop, Rutledge holds significant value, simply because of the potential he has shown. While his late-season swoon and relative inexperience make him a risky pick, he has enough upside to justify a pick in the middle rounds of a standard mixed league draft. (Updated 1/2/13)|
