Rockies to call up Rodgers from Triple-A

Rodgers, 22, has primarily played shortstop during his five seasons in the minors but has played mostly at second base this season, starting 25 games. In fact, he's started only six of 35 games this year at shortstop and three at third base.

If Story does not land on the IL and Rodgers is recalled, the Rockies could send McMahon back to Albuquerque (highly unlikely) or they could send Pat Valaika back, even though they just called him up (more likely). Just last season, Rodgers hit 17 home runs and drove in 62 runs in Double-A Hartford as he finally found his stride. In the bottom of the ninth inning in Wednesday's extra inning loss to the reigning World Champion Boston Red Sox, the Rockies shortstop, Trevor Story, collided with left fielder Raimel Tapia on a play.

Story exited the game in the ninth inning, ahead of the Boston Red Sox walk-off victor the following inning, but told reporters he had "just a bone bruise".
