Rockies giving Rutledge a look at second base

DENVER -- Rockies shortstop Josh Rutledge made his second career start at second base Wednesday.

"I want to see a little bit more of that," manager Jim Tracy said.

Rutledge made his Major League debut there Sept. 6 at Atlanta. Jonathan Herrera started Wednesday at shortstop, making just his second start in six games. Tracy has said he will only start Rutledge at second with either Herrera or Troy Tulowitzki at shortstop.

The latter continues to do all baseball activities, but Tracy had no timetable as to his possible return. Tulowitzki last played for the Rockies on May 30 when he strained his left groin and underwent surgery June 21 to remove scar tissue from a nerve in the groin area.
