Rockies second baseman Josh Rutledge had three hits Wednesday.
Rutledge hit three singles, driving in two runs. He's gotten off to an average start, hitting .255/.316/.383 in 141 at-bats this year. Rutledge has added five home runs and five steals already. He'll face Giants pitcher Matt Cain Thursday.
“Rutledge filled in very nicely for Tulo who at times was one of the best hitting power SS's of the 2nd half of 2012. Josh will play 2B everyday for the Rockies and could find himself to be one of the great sleepers that you can depend on late in your draft. Do not sleep on his 15+ HR potential.”
