News: Rosario was placed on the 15-day DL with left wrist inflammation on Wednesday. Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )

News: 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." Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )

News: Rosario (wrist) remains out of the lineup Tuesday against the Giants. Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )

News: Rosario (wrist) is out of the lineup Monday against the Giants. Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )

News: Rosario is out of the lineup Sunday against the Marlins due to a sore right wrist, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports. Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )

News: Rosario is out of the Rockies' lineup Tuesday against the Royals. Impact: Manager Walt Weiss will reward Mike McKenry with another start Tuesday, after McKenry reached base in all five trips in Game 1 of Sunday's twin bill. It seems the skipper will continue to split the work fairly evenly between Rosario and McKenry the rest of the way to reduce the stress on the 25-year-old Rosario's legs.(RotoWire, )

News: Rosario is out of the lineup Saturday against the Reds, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. Impact: Rosario will yield backstop duties to Mike McKenry for the fourth time in 11 games, and the team will likely continue get the 25-year-old Rosario frequent rest with nothing really left to play for this season.(RotoWire, )
