Today’s Matchup – August 10, 2011


Lost of news to get to today, so let’s get going.

The Rockies officially signed righty Kevin Millwood today, and he will start for the club today. The club has also purchased the contract of righty Edgar Gonzalez from Triple-A Colorado Springs, and he’ll be available and in the bullpen tonight. The club has placed Matt Lindstrom on the DL with a nerve injury in his upper right arm. The team also sent third baseman Ian Stewart back down to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

We’ll see Lindstrom back in Denver, hopefully this year. Will we see Ian Stewart in Denver ever again? Discuss in the comments section.
