Colorado Rockies C Jordan Pacheco (shoulder) was the designated hitter Tuesday, March 11, his first extended action this spring after dealing with a strained left shoulder. The next test for Pacheco will be playing defense, but he said he is now pain-free. "It's just being strong. My little rotator cuff exercises helped out a bunch. Going from not holding a glove up to doing it every day is a little wearing on the body. I've just got to be smart and keep up my exercises. It should be good," Pacheco said.

Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa, who has had one complete game in his major-league career, held the St. Louis Cardinals hitless for the first six innings Sunday, May 12, at Busch Stadium before 3B David Freese singled past the sprawling attempt of Rockies 1B Jordan Pacheco with two out in the seventh.

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.

Colorado Rockies 1B Todd Helton (forearm) hopes to play in Game 2 of the team's doubleheader Tuesday, April 23, after straining his left forearm last week. However, with temperatures very low, manager Walt Weiss didn't expect to play Helton. He received a cortisone shot in his forearm and was feeling better Tuesday, but it was still stiff and swollen.
Fantasy Tip: As long as Helton is out, Jordan Pacheco will benefit with increased playing time. However, it looks like Helton can avoid a trip to the DL.
