Wilin Rosario C COL 1 Day
Rosario went 3-for-4 with a solo homer in Monday's 11-3 loss to the Dodgers.
After engaging in a brief timeshare at catcher with Mike McKenry at catcher shortly after returning from the DL on Sept. 7, Rosario seems to have solidified himself as the team's top backstop once again. He made his third start in four contests on Monday, coming away with his first multi-hit game since Aug. 14.

Rosario is out of the lineup Sunday vs. the Cardinals.
Rosario will get a breather after starting three of the last four games behind the dish. Mike McKenry will step in to handle the catching duties.

Rosario is not in the lineup Wednesday.
He's starting to see less playing time down the stretch after having a pretty disappointing offensive season. He should come at a pretty cheap price in 2015, but the further we get away from that 28-homer season in 2012, the more it looks like an aberration. Mike McKenry will get the start behind the dish Wednesday.

Rosario is not in the lineup Monday against the Mets.
Though Rosario was activated from the DL on Sunday, it's not apparent if his wrist is fully healthy, as he'll sit for the second straight game since returning. Rosario did provide a pinch-hit double in Sunday's series finale against the Padres, but it's uncertain when he may be given the go-ahead to resume duty behind the plate. The Rockies aren't in any rush to get Rosario reps at catcher, considering Mike McKenry has shined both offensively and defensively in his absence.

Rosario (wrist) was activated from the 15-day DL on Sunday, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.
Rosario hasn't played since Aug. 22, and isn't in Sunday's starting lineup, but should be back behind the plate early this week. Fantasy owners that have endured a disappointing year from the Rockies' backstop may still have some hope left for production during the season's final weeks.

Rosario was placed on the 15-day DL with left wrist inflammation on Wednesday.
Rosario attempted to take batting practice the last couple of days with the hope of proving to the team's medical staff that he was healthy, but his wrist didn't respond the way he had hoped. He'll be eligible to return from the disabled list Sept. 7, but it remains to be seen if he'll heal fast enough to meet that timeline. In the meantime, Mike McKenry will take over as the Rockies' No. 1 catcher.

Manager Walt Weiss acknowledged Tuesday that Rosario's wrist injury could keep him out longer than expected, MLB.com reports. "He's been getting treatment and trying to swing the bat in the cage the past couple days," Weiss said. "But he's getting close to probably looking at a DL [stint]. The wrist just isn't responding like we want."
Rosario has missed the previous four games due to the injury, with Mike McKenry garnering the starts behind the plate in his stead. The Rockies will likely wait until Wednesday before reaching a decision on Rosario, but if he does indeed require a DL stint, look for the team to call up Jackson Williams from Triple-A Colorado Springs for catching depth. With 10 homers and a .248 batting average in addition to the injury issues this season, Rosario has been a major disappointment this season relative to where he was selected in fantasy drafts.

Rosario (wrist) remains out of the lineup Tuesday against the Giants.
A slide into second base last Friday left Rosario with a sore right wrist, and the 25-year-old is now set to miss a fourth straight start as a result of the injury. Mike McKenry will catch again Tuesday, and if Rosario isn't ready to go by Wednesday, the team may have no choice but to bring up another backstop from Triple-A.

Rosario (wrist) is out of the lineup Monday against the Giants.
Rosario, who is dealing with a sore left wrist, was able to take batting practice Sunday, but hasn't yet been cleared to resume game action. He first suffered the injury on Aug. 20 against the Royals, and has only played one game since that time. Mike McKenry will act as the team's everyday catcher until Rosario is cleared to return.

Rosario is out of the lineup Sunday against the Marlins due to a sore right wrist, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.
Rosario apparently sustained the injury while sliding into second base in Friday's game. The Rockies would prefer not to use Mike McKenry for Sunday's afternoon tilt after he caught 13 innings a day earlier, but Rosario isn't considered healthy enough to catch just yet. He could be forced to miss a couple more games as a result of the injury.
