Rockies Transactions: Dexter Fowler Likely Headed to DL; Helton Possibly Activated

Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that after yesterday's spectacular catch, Dexter Fowler will likely head to the DL with bruised ribs from it:

Even as the Rockies wait for MRI results, it likely won't change Dexter Fowler's fate. A source close to the outfielder said today that the disabled list remains likely after Fowler woke up sore today.

Fowler hurt his left ribs and left hip crashing into the Coors Field wall in the ninth-inning Sunday against the Cubs. His leaping grab preserved the lead, but came at a cost. Fowler crashed awkwardly into the wall, writhing in pain.

Helton would be a likely candidate to take Fowler's roster spot as he is almost finished with his rehab assignment in Casper.
