As expected the Rockies are calling up Josh Rutledge from Triple-A in the wake of Troy Tulowitzki‘s broken rib, according to Troy Renck of the Denver Post. Rutledge began the season as the Rockies’ starting second baseman, but was demoted to Triple-A in mid-May. He’s been playing mostly second base in the minors, but Rutledge…

UPDATE: The Dodgers just announced that Kemp left the game with a right knee contusion and was taken for precautionary X-rays on his jaw.
