Rockies to take advantage of upcoming AL games

DENVER -- The American League road trip comes at an ideal time for the Rockies, as the designated hitter spot will give manager Walt Weiss a chance to rest his best hitters keep while still keeping them in the lineup.

Weiss said anyone from Wilin Rosario to Carlos Gonzalez to Michael Cuddyer could fill in as the DH during the five upcoming games against the Blue Jays and Red Sox.

"At this point in the season, we go into Washington where there's a couple day games -- it may be an opportunity for me to give our regulars maybe that DH spot here and there," Weiss said. "We'll figure that out, but I think it's a nice opportunity to keep them involved but give them a break at the same time."
