|Josh Rutledge heading down to Triple-A|
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(5/22/13) With Michael Cuddyer returning from the disabled list Friday, the Rockies announced Wednesday that infielder Josh Rutledge has been optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Rutledge is batting .242 with a .655 OPS. He has yet to play in Triple-A after making the jump from Double-A last season. DJ LeMahieu is expected to take Rutledge's place in the starting lineup.
Rutledge has five home runs and 13 RBI in 43 games.

(5/13/13) Rockies second baseman Josh Rutledge wanted to make things competitive on Monday during a 9-1 loss at Chicago.
With Colorado down 9-0 in the top of the ninth and Carlos Marmol on for the Cubs, Rutledge hit a solo homer to put the Rockies on the board. The homer was his fifth of the season and his 11th RBI.
Rutledge went 1 for 3 with a walk in the game. He's batting .241. Rutledge has two homers and two RBI over his last 10 games.

(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."

(5/8/13) Rockies second baseman Josh Rutledge recorded the fourth multi-hit performance in his last seven games Tuesday night against the Yankees. He went 3 for 4 with a run scored in the 2-0 win. All three of his hits went for singles.
Rutledge is batting .400 (12 for 30) in his previous seven contests with one homer and three RBI. His average has risen from .200 to .252 during that span.
|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)|
