|Josh Rutledge on roll for Rockies |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(9/10/14) Shortstop Josh Rutledge has continued to provide a rare bright light in a lost season for the Rockies by maintaining a hot bat late in the season.
Rutledge is batting .500 over his last 22 at-bats with seven runs and six RBI in seven games. He has raised his batting average from .247 to .269 in September. That's his highest mark since Aug. 10.
|Josh Rutledge healthy enough to play Thursday |

(7/31/14) Rockies infielder Josh Rutledge was out of the lineup for the fourth straight game Thursday against the Cubs due to an illness, but was feeling well enough to come into the game as a defensive replacement.
Rutledge entered the game in a double switch during the seventh inning, playing shortstop and hitting ninth in one plate appearance. He should be healthy enough to play moving forward.

(7/30/14) Rockies shortstop Josh Rutledge is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Cubs, but he is available in an emergency situation, MLB.com reports.
Rutledge missed Monday and Tuesday due to an illness, and it seems like he's getting better, as the team optioned a reserve infielder Wednesday. He has hit .307/.358/.486 with three home runs and 19 RBI in 140 at-bats.
|Josh Rutledge misses second straight start Tuesday |

(7/29/14) Rockies shortstop Josh Rutledge was held out of the lineup Tuesday against the Cubs due to an upper respiratory infection, according to The Denver Post. It was the second straight start he missed.
|There was plenty of buzz surrounding Josh Rutledge entering the 2013 season after having a successful 73-game run as a rookie in 2012, when he hit .274 with a .469 slugging percentage. Rutledge entered last season as the Rockies' starting second baseman, but when he failed to replicate his 2012 success, the Rockies were forced to demote Rutledge to the minors in late May. He would bounce between the minors and majors the rest of the season, but started to show some of the offensive potential he flashed the previous season late in the year. Sharing playing time at second base with DJ LeMahieu, Rutledge hit .333 with a .387 on-base percentage and .826 OPS in his final 20 games (12 starts). Rutledge hit .371 with a .587 slugging percentage and 1.032 OPS in 38 games at Triple-A last season. He's clearly too good to play in the minors, but he has to show the Rockies this spring he's ready again for a full-time role. Rutledge certainly has upside, but unless he has a monster spring, he's shaping up to be more of a deep-league Fantasy option.
