Colorado Rockies OF Corey Dickerson (wrist) is out of the lineup Wednesday, July 9, after hurting his wrist Tuesday, July 8. OF Kyle Parker will make the start at first base, and OF Brandon Barnes is in left field.
Fantasy Tip: It appears as though Dickerson's injury is a day-to-day situation. The Rockies are facing a left-handed pitcher today, so perhaps the Rockies use Parker at first base against southpaws to give Justin Morneau a break.

Colorado Rockies OF Kyle Parker has been recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs Tuesday, July 8. In a corresponding move, SP Yohan Flande was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Fantasy Tip: This is a surprising move given the logjam in the outfield, and Justin Morneau entrenched at first base. Parker didn't get the at-bats to have fantasy relevancy during his last recall, and little has changed. Until he sticks, a roster spot is tough to justify.

The Colorado Rockies are recalling OF Kyle Parker from Triple-A Colorado Springs Monday, June 16.
Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen how much Parker will play in the Carlos Gonzalez-less outfield in Colorado, but he should at least see semi-regular playing time while he's up. Parker has 20-plus home run power thanks to a quick and powerful stroke. Look to acquire him in NL-only leagues, for now.
