Josh Rutledge went 1-for-3 and scored a run as the Rockies and White Sox played to a 5-5 draw in Cactus League action on Sunday.

Rutledge, who is still battling to be the team's starting second baseman, is hitting an impressive .303/.343/.515 on the spring season. Unfortunately for him, his main competition, D.J. LeMahieu, is slashing an equally impressive .316/.381/.395. From a fantasy perspective, Rutledge winning out would be much more appealing.

Josh Rutledge (ankle) went 1-for-3 with an RBI in Wednesday's Cactus League game.

Rutledge wound up missing five days with a left ankle sprain. "It's pretty much 100 percent now," the infielder said Wednesday. "I still tape it for feel for now, but I'll probably stop doing that soon." He is likely to lose the second base competition to D.J. LeMahieu, but Rutledge should still have a spot on the Rockies' Opening Day roster as a utility middle infielder.

Josh Rutledge (ankle) expects to be cleared for Cactus League action later this week.

Rutledge rolled his left ankle last Friday while doing drills around the second base bag. "That first night it didn't really swell up, but it hurt. It's getting better. I was able to do some light shagging of flyballs," he said Tuesday in camp. "It should be ready in a few more days." Rutledge is competing with D.J. LeMahieu for the starting second base job and with Charlie Culberson and Paul Janish for bench spots.

Josh Rutledge went 1-for-4 with his 12th stolen base of the season in the Rockies 2-1 victory over the Dodgers in Sunday's season finale.

It was tough sledding for the 24-year-old infielder this season, as he was bounced back and forth between the Rockies and Triple-A Colorado Springs. His final line on the season was a disappointing .235/.294/.337 with seven homers, 45 runs, 19 RBI and 12 steals in 285 at-bats. He did however hit .328 (19-for-58) over the final month of the season, which should give him a leg up in the competition to begin the 2014 season as the Rockies starting second baseman.
