Scary situation for Chris Nelson and his family as doctors had to shock his heart back into rhythm Tuesday. In light of his hospitalization the team moved him to the DL. Jonathan Herrera has also been moved to the DL with an ailing shoulder.
DJ LeMahieu and Andrew Brown have been called up to take their places with the club. LeMahieu can play second, short and third. LeMahieu, the second piece in the Cubs Stewart trade, has already played for the Rockies. His 19 games with the team produced a forgettable .205/.262/.231, but his time with CS is yielding a .314 average.
Brown, who was claimed off of waivers from the Cardinals at the end of last year, has been hot for Colorado Springs (.317 | .372 | .605) with 20 home runs and 84 RBI’s in 86 games. He can play both infield as well as outfield and was recently named to the Triple-A All-Star Game.
