Colvin sits against Dodgers with sore elbow
LOS ANGELES -- The already depleted Rockies scratched outfielder Tyler Colvin from the lineup for Saturday night's game against the Dodgers because of a sore left elbow.

"He's not sure, we're not sure, exactly how it happened, but he got treatment this afternoon and he tried to swing and was not able to swing," Rockies manager Jim Tracy said. "Throwing is also an issue, that goes without saying."

Matt McBride was inserted in right field for Colvin, who is hitting .290 with 18 homers and 71 RBIs in 132 games.

With outfielder Carlos Gonzalez slowed by a sore hamstring, outfielder Dexter Fowler limited because of a wrist issue and first baseman Jason Giambi battling leg pain, the Rockies went into Saturday's game with one healthy reserve, infielder Jonathan Herrera. The issue severely limits Tracy's strategic options.

In Friday night's 8-0 loss, left-handed hitting outfielder Charlie Blackmon had to take a pinch-hit at-bat against dominating Dodgers lefty pitcher Clayton Kershaw, and relief pitcher Guillermo Moscoso had to bat in the seventh inning when it was still plausible that the Rockies could work their way back into the game.
