Jim Tracy Sets Post-All-Star Break Rotation

Yesterday afternoon Jim Tracy announced that the post-All-Star Break rotation for the Rockies will be Jason Hammel, Jorge De La Rosa, Aaron Cook, Ubaldo Jimenez, and Jeff Francis. As a result, Jimenez will receive extended time off before he takes the mound again, as Troy Renck writes:

Tracy wanted extra rest for Jimenez and Francis and thought it was best to split left-handers up. Jimenez will need rest after all-star game then he will attend the ESPYs.

Depending on how the Marlins' rotation is set up for the second half of the season, we might see a Jimenez-Josh Johnson match-up that Monday. You won't want to miss two of the best pitchers in the game facing each other.

Should any of these starters leave the rotation for any reason, the Rockies have Jhoulys Chacin waiting in the bullpen.
