Rockies Roster 2012: Prospect Josh Rutledge May Get Call Friday

According to Troy Renck of the Denver Post, the Colorado Rockies may be poised to call up one of their top prospects on Friday. Renck reports that INF Josh Rutledge was a healthy scratch from Friday's Double-A game, suggesting the Rockies may want him for Friday night's game against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Rutledge is sporting an impressive .306/.338/.508 slash with 13 homers and 14 steals with the Rockies' Double-A affiliate. In March, prospect analyst Marc Hulet ranked Rutledge as the team's No. 11 prospect, saying the 23-year-old infielder could ultimately land at second base as he is not an above average defender.

The Rockies currently have INF Marco Scutaro and UTIL Jonathan Herrera manning the shortstop position as All-Star SS Troy Tulowitzki recovers on the DL.
