Wilin Rosario went 1-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Tuesday's win over the Phillies.

Rosario broke a 1-1 tie with a three-run opposite-field shot off of Cole Hamels, his fifth of the season. Rosario hasn't done a whole lot at the plate overall, slashing just .227/.254/.403 with 21 RBI in 126 plate appearances.

Wilin Rosario went 0-for-4 and grounded into a double play in Monday's loss and is 0-for-12 the last three days.

Rosario went 5-for-14 with a homer in his first four games back from the DL, but he's hitless since. The Rockies had him batting fifth today, which isn't ideal given his typically low OBP. Better if that were Justin Morneau's spot, but since the Rockies made the switch to batting Troy Tulowitzki third and Carlos Gonzalez fourth, batting Morneau fifth puts lefties back-to-back.

Rockies manager Walt Weiss said Tuesday that he expects Wilin Rosario (virus) to be activated "within a week."

Rockies placed C Wilin Rosario on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 3, with a viral infection.

Rosario doesn't figure to need two weeks to recover, but the Rockies needed to free up a roster spot for Jhoulys Chacin and have decided to go ahead and DL the catcher. Expect Rosario to return when first eligible on May 18. Jordan Pacheco and Michael McKenry will handle the catching duties while Rosario is out.
