Rockies recall Field to add infield depth
DENVER -- To replace Marco Scutaro -- traded Friday night to the Giants -- on the 25-man roster, the Rockies on Saturday recalled Tommy Field from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Field, who manager Jim Tracy says can play second base or shortstop, is available for Saturday night's game against the Reds.

Field, 25, made his Major League debut last September, when he hit .271 (13-for-48) with three RBIs in 16 games.

"I want to get another look at his offense," Tracy said. "I'll try to work him in."

DJ LeMahieu started at second base -- Scutaro's old position -- Saturday. LeMahieu was recalled from Colorado Springs on July 17 to replace Chris Nelson. Nelson (irregular heartbeat) and Jonathan Herrera (wrist infection) are eligible to come off the 15-day disabled list Tuesday. Tracy is eager to use that time to get more looks at LeMahieu, who has hit .229 in 24 games with the Rockies.

"DJ is getting run at second tonight," Tracy said. "We need to see him at a consistent basis."

Charlie Culberson, the infielder acquired in exchange for Scutaro, reported to Colorado Springs.
