Lineup Card: Rockies vs Nationals 6-27-12


Colorado Rockies (28-45)
  1. Dexter Fowler (CF)
  2. Marco Scutaro (SS)
  3. Carlos Gonzalez (LF)
  4. Michael Cuddyer (1B)
  5. Tyler Colvin (RF)
  6. Jordan Pacheco (3B)
  7. Chris Nelson (2B)
  8. Wilin Rosario (C)
  9. Edwar Cabrera (P)
With the Bob Apodaca news breaking yesterday, I neglected to mention the Rockies recalling 24-year-old left-handed pitching prospect Edwar Cabrera, while shipping the struggling Alex White back to Colorado Springs. 

Cabrera will make his major league debut tonight against Washington, and then enter into the circus known as the Rockies four-man rotation. And I'll be honest, I think this is a really awful way to acclimate a young pitcher you'll be counting on for years to come into the big leagues. But hey, (sarcasm) look how well it's working for White and Christian Friedrich (/sarcasm). 

Washington Nationals (42-30)
  1. Danny Espinosa (2B)
  2. Bryce Harper (CF)
  3. Ryan Zimmerman (3B)
  4. Michael Morse (RF)
