Updating previous reports, the Colorado Rockies have placed 3B Nolan Arenado (finger) on the 15-day disabled list because of a mallet fracture in his left middle finger. He will wear a splint on the finger until he meets with orthopedic surgeon Dr. Thomas Graham Friday, May 30. In a corresponding move, INF Josh Rutledge was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Fantasy Tip: Rutledge, DJ LeMahieu and Charlie Culberson are all possibilities to see time at the hot corner for Colorado in Arenado's absence. Culberson, normally an outfielder, played the final seven innings at third base Friday after Arenado exited the game.

Colorado Rockies 2B DJ LeMahieu is a strong candidate to hit leadoff this year now that OF Dexter Fowler is gone, according to manager Walt Weiss. "His on-base percentage may not be prototypical of a leadoff guy. But I think that's going to develop because he has such great instincts for the game. That's going to be part of his game you will see him improve on," Weiss said.

Colorado Rockies manager Walt Weiss is considering several options to fill the vacant leadoff spot, including OF Carlos Gonzalez. OFs Charlie Blackmon and Corey Dickerson are also considered top candidates for the top spot in the order. 2B DJ LeMahieu, 2B Josh Rutledge, OF Brandon Barnes and OF Charlie Culberson are also others who could earn leadoff opportunities. Weiss said Friday, Dec. 6, that he is not ruling out other options.
Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez moving to the leadoff spot would mean a dip in his RBI numbers, but also an increase in his runs scored, and perhaps stolen base totals. Either way, he will be a stud fantasy option again in 2014.
