Rockies Vs. Reds Lineups: Tyler Colvin Starting In Center, Batting Second

With Dexter Fowler still recovering from an ankle injury that's kept him out of the past few games, the Colorado Rockies will be starting Tyler Colvin in center field once again as they face the Cincinnati Reds on Saturday. Fowler hasn't played since May 23, when he struck out while pinch-hitting against the Miami Marlins.

The Rockies also have Wil Nieves making his debut with the team at catcher in place of the injured Ramon Hernandez, who was recently placed on the disabled list with a left hand sprain. The 34-year-old Nieves had been hitting .299/.330/.448 over 98 plate appearances with Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Here's the Rockies' lineup:
