DENVER -- Dexter Fowler was not in Sunday afternoon's starting lineup against the Giants, but manager Walt Weiss spoke with optimism about the condition of the switch-hitting outfielder's right wrist.

Fowler hasn't played since going 0-for-4 Tuesday at Boston. If Fowler is not healed enough to play Tuesday against the Dodgers, it's likely the Rockies will place him on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to Wednesday.

"He's definitely better," Weiss said Sunday morning. "Hopefully with the off-day on Tuesday he'll be ready to go. We'll reevaluate him then."

Tyler Colvin started in Fowler's place.
