Rockies | Jeff Francis to DL

The Colorado Rockies placed SP Jeff Francis (groin) on the 15-day disabled list with a left groin strain Thursday, May 16, and designated INF Reid Brignac for assignment. 3B DJ LeMahieu and P Rob Scahill were both recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Fantasy Tip: Tyler Chatwood and Drew Pomeranz are both candidates to replace Francis in the rotation, starting Sunday. Roy Oswalt is probably the best long-term bet for this rotation spot, though, but all three of these options are risky propositions in mixed formats.
