Lineup Card: Rockies vs Padres 6-29-12

Thursday's Recap: Josh Outman Starts Are Fun!


Colorado Rockies (29-46)
  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. Jeff Francis (P)
A couple things of note today.

1. Todd Helton sits for that second time in three days to accommodate the Rockies need to keep Dexter Fowler and Tyler Colvin on the field together. I suspect this is something we'll start to see more often, and honestly, it works for me because Fowler and Colvin do need to play, and a fresher Helton likely makes him more effective as well. Those incredibly long innings standing around in the field have to be taking their toll on some level.

2. Tyler Chatwood has been recalled and will piggyback Jeff Francis tonight. I imagine he'll eventually replace Josh Outman as a front end man in the paired pitching system. Edwar Cabrera was shipped out to make room for Chatwood to wrap up his (sarcasm) overwhelmingly positive first experience at the big league level (/sarcasm). 

San Diego Padres (28-49)
  1. Chris Denorfia (RF)
  2. Logan Forsythe (2B)
  3. Chase Headley (3B)
  4. Carlos Quentin (LF)
  5. Yonder Alonso (1B)
  6. Cameron Maybin (CF)
  7. Everth Cabrera (SS)
  8. John Baker (C)
  9. Jason Marquis (P)
