|Josh Rutledge connects for third home run |

(7/20/14) Rockies infielder Josh Rutledge started in place of the injured Troy Tulowitzki (thigh) Sunday at Pittsburgh and made the most of his start by going 2 for 4 with two RBI in the 5-3 loss.
Rutledge made his presence felt early with a two-run homer off Jeff Locke in the first inning. It was his third home run and first in 16 games (five starts). Rutledge had just his second multi-RBI game of the season.

(6/28/14) Rockies infielder Josh Rutledge clubbed his second home run Friday against the Brewers.
With his team trailing by one in the ninth inning, Rutledge stepped in against Francisco Rodriguez. On the sixth pitch of the at-bat, Rutledge belted an 84 mph changeup out to left to tie the game. Rutledge finished 3 for 4, with two runs scored and one RBI.
|Josh Rutledge re-emerging as Fantasy relevant option? |

(6/12/14) Rockies infielder Josh Rutledge has started four of the last five games at second base for Colorado. The Rockies haven't benched DJ LeMahieu, but have instead played him more at third base lately to get Rutledge's bat in the lineup.
This is a positive development for Rutledge, especially since he's producing offensively. He's batting .615 (8 for 13) with one triple, two RBI and seven runs in his last four games.
Charlie Culberson didn't provide the production the Rockies were looking for after Nolan Arenado went on the disabled list in late May, so it seems manager Walt Weiss is comfortable enough playing LeMahieu at third base and Rutledge at second base.
Rutledge was impressive during his rookie season in 2012 before having a horrendous year in 2013. He's starting to show signs of bouncing back in 2014, so he could be worth a flier in deep formats and has the potential to develop into much more.

(6/11/14) Rockies second baseman Josh Rutledge went 3 for 4 with a triple, a walk, an RBI and three runs scored in a 13-10 loss to the Braves on Tuesday. Rutledge is 6 for 10 over his last three starts, raising his average to .341/.413/.537 in 41 at-bats.
|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.
