Lineup Card: Rockies vs A's 6-13-12


Colorado Rockies (24-36)
  1. Dexter Fowler (CF)
  2. Marco Scutaro (SS)
  3. Tyler Colvin (LF)
  4. Michael Cuddyer (RF)
  5. Todd Helton (1B)
  6. Jordan Pacheco (3B)
  7. Wilin Rosario (C)
  8. Chris Nelson (2B)
  9. Josh Outman (P)
In case you haven't heard (if you haven't, you're the only one), Troy Tulowitzki left his first rehab game this afternoon after aggravating the left groin injury that put him on the DL.Tulo had homered and singled prior to feeling pain and asking out of the game, so it looked like he was ready to pick up where he left off, but now he's back in Denver to receive further treatment and evaluation.

(I hate this season passionately)

Oh, and Carlos Gonzalez sits tonight to make room for the hot-hitting Tyler Colvin. Colvin will likely start for Helton tomorrow, and then has an easy path to the lineup this weekend with the DH in play.

Oakland Athletics (29-35)
  1. Jemile Weeks (2B)
  2. Colin Cowgill (CF)
  3. Seth Smith (RF)
  4. Yoenis Cespedes (LF)
  5. Brandon Inge (3B)
  6. Josh Donaldson (C)
  7. Brandon Moss (1B)
  8. Cliff Pennington (SS)
  9. Tommy Milone (P)
Cespedes returns to Oakland's lineup after a week plus absence. That's wonderful news for my fantasy team, and terrible news for Josh Outman and the five Rockies relievers we'll be seeing tonight.  Heads up on the concourse.
