Rockies recall Stewart to start against Braves
Ian Stewart is getting his third chance of the season to make an
impact in the Rockies’ lineup.
Colorado recalled Stewart from Triple-A Colorado Springs to
start at third base against the Braves on Tuesday night.
Stewart began the season as a starter but has hit only .064 in
21 games. He was sent to Colorado Springs on April 19, recalled on
May 3 and sent back to the minors on May 13. He hit .256 with 18
homers and 61 RBIs in 2010.
Outfielder Carlos Gonzalez suffered a bruised right wrist when
he crashed into the outfield wall on Sunday. Shortstop Troy
Tulowitzki left Monday night’s game with a strained quadriceps.
Neither player was starting on Tuesday night.
Outfielder Cole Carner was optioned to Colorado Springs.
