Tyler Colvin 1B/LF.. COL 5 Months
Rockies manager Walt Weiss said Wednesday that Tyler Colvin and Corey Dickerson will share time in center field while Dexter Fowler is out.
Colvin entered play Wednesday in a 2-for-32 (.063) slump since June 17, but Weiss thinks he's "taken some good swings lately." Dickerson has hit a whole lot, either, sporting a .235/.316/.471 in seven contests since his call-up. Both players hit left-handed, so it won't be a strict platoon but rather a "mix and match" situation, according to Weiss.

Rockies recalled OF Tyler Colvin from Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Colvin will provide depth in the outfield for the Rockies while Michael Cuddyer recovers from a minor rib cage injury. Colvin, 27, was sporting a .293/.396/.518 batting line, nine homers and 29 RBI through 55 games this season at the Triple-A level. He may hold some value in NL-only fantasy formats.

Rockies optioned OF Tyler Colvin to Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Colvin had a breakout season for the Rockies in 2012, hitting .290/.327/.531 with 18 homers, 72 RBI and seven stolen bases. He struggled to get things going in the spring though, hitting just .167/.216/.208 with 14 strikeouts in 48 at-bats. While this move comes as a major surprise, with the health of Todd Helton, Michael Cuddyer and Carlos Gonzalez always in question, Colvin should see plenty of at-bats in Colorado during the season. He could also attract interest on the trade market.

Rockies avoided arbitration with OF Tyler Colvin by agreeing to a one-year contract.
The financial details aren't known. Colvin, who was arbitration-eligible for the first time as a Super 2 player, had a nice bounce-back year in 2012, batting .290/.327/.531 with 18 longballs. He'll open 2013 in a backup role but will see plenty of playing time when the inevitable Todd Helton injury occurs.

He's enjoying a fine offensive effort, hitting .293 with 18 homers and 65 RBI.
