According to the Sky Sox GameDay Twitter account, Colorado Rockies prospect OF Charlie Blackmon is going to the 7-day DL with turf toe:

The 26-year-old started the 2012 season with the Rockies' Triple-A affiliate, but has yet to find a rhythm. Through 17 games and 71 plate appearances, Blackmon has only 1 home run and a .203/.282/.313 slash.
Blackmon made his major league debut in 2011, collecting 102 plate appearances while hitting only .255/.277/.296 with 1 home run, 5 steals and 1 caught stealing. In the minors in 2011, Blackmon hit a scintillating .342/.396/.576 slash with 10 homers and 12 steals.
