Rockies | Expected to add Ryan Wheeler

The Colorado Rockies are expected to call up 3B Ryan Wheeler Thursday, April 25, after 1B Todd Helton (forearm) has missed the last five games with a sore left forearm. Helton could land on the disabled list. Wheeler is hitting .348 with six extra-base hits in 15 games with Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Fantasy Tip: Jordan Pacheco and Michael Cuddyer have been splitting time at first base with Helton sidelined, and that's expected to continue if Helton lands on the DL. Wheeler will likely just be used for infield depth, so he'll only carry value in NL-only formats.
