Torrealba decision delayed

Rockies manager Jim Tracy said the decision on activating catcher Yorvit Torrealba from the restricted list will come on Friday, when the team returns home to meet the D-backs.

Torrealba has completed a brief rehab period, granted by Major League Baseball because Torrealba had to abruptly leave the club and go to Venezuela when his son and two other family members were kidnapped. All were released.

Paul Phillips, who has played admirably in replacing Torrealba, started at catcher on Wednesday afternoon against the Dodgers.

Here are the lineups:

Rockies

Dexter Fowler, CF

Clint Barmes, 2B

Brad Hawpe, RF

Garrett Atkins, 1B

Troy Tulowitzki, SS

Ryan Spilborghs, LF

Ian Stewart, 3B

Paul Phillips, C

Jason Hammel, P

Dodgers

Juan Pierre, LF

Matt Kemp, CF

Orlando Hudson, 2B

Andre Ethier, RF

Mark Loretta, 3B

James Loney, 1B

Brad Ausmus, C

Juan Castero, SS

Clayton Kershaw, P

Hi, Thomas ~~

I know this is off-topic, but any idea why Josh Fogg has not pitched since the 24th ???
