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
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(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.
Josh Rutledge out of lineup Wednesday, available in emergency
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(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
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(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.
|2014 Summary: Remember in 2012 when Josh Rutledge tore up Double-A and then proceeded to do even greater damage at the major league level before turning ice cold in September? For the second year in a row, Rutledge didn't do much to dispel the skeptics who never bought into his initial big league success. Though he hit 16 doubles and seven triples in 309 at-bats -- mostly as Troy Tulowitzki's replacement during his second-half DL stint -- Rutledge had little home run power, totaling just four. However, the impact of a 27 percent strikeout per at-bat ratio was blunted by the 17 infield hits Rutledge collected.|
Playing time status: Being oft-injured Tulowitzki's backup always offers the possibility of frequent playing time, but for the most part, Rutledge will likely settle into a utility role for the Rockies.
2015 Outlook: Rutledge's 2012 power outburst is looking more and more fluky, but he can still use his speed to turn doubles into triples, steal bases and get infield hits. Those skills give Rutledge some value in NL-only leagues, assuming he can get his typical 300 plate appearances.
