Rockies Injury Update: Eddie Butler began rehab on Saturday

By on 7/13/2014 11:00:00 AM

Despite having an offense that is third in the Major Leagues in runs scored, the Rockies sit at 40-54, twelve games out in the National League West. The pitching staff has struggled mightily and has a team ERA of 5.00, 30th in the league. Help should be on the way shortly after the All-Star break, as Eddie Butler began his rehab on Saturday.

Our own Evan Petzold reported on July 3 that Bulter would throw live batting practice on Saturday and could be ready for a rehab assignment. Once he progresses to Triple-A Colorado Springs he could be activated a day or two after his rehab start.

An update on Butler, as reported by Igor Mello of, is that Butler began his rehab assignment on Saturday with Class A Modesto. Butler allowed three runs, two hits, two walks and struck out two in four innings. Barring any setbacks, Butler should make two more rehab starts before returning to the Rockies on July 22.

Butler made his Major League debut this season and was hit hard, allowing six earned runs and 10 hits, in 5 1/3 innings. In 11 Minor League starts at Double-A Tulsa, Bulter was 4-4 with a 2.62 ERA.
