Helton under the weather, Corpas nearly back

– First baseman Todd Helton was out of the lineup on Sunday, which isn’t always eye-popping. He’s sat some day games to stay fresh. But this time, manager Jim Tracy intended to use him against the Braves, but he said head athletic trainer Keith Dugger informed him Helton was “under the weather.”

Garrett Atkins played first base and hit cleanup. Seth Smith took Helton’s No. 3 spot.

– Righty reliever Manuel Corpas is looking more and more as if he’ll return Thursday when the Rockies return after the All-Star break to open a four-game set with the Padres. Corpas threw a perfect eighth inning for Triple-A Colorado Springs on Saturday. On Sunday, he’s to be treated like a normal reliever. He’ll warm up and be called in according to game situation. His previous outings were scheduled one-inning stints. The Rockies will examine him Wednesday before deciding whether to activate him.

Hey, my brother, Jordan Bastian, covers the Blue Jays for MLB.com. I’m moving to Denver this fall from Chicago so planning to officially become a Rockies fan. (from Cubs and/or Sox)

Would like to start following your blog to get my Rockies Education – but I can’t seem to find the RSS feed to follow via a blogreader… do you have an RSS feed? Makes it easier to follow your blog.

Look forward to learning about the Colorado Rockies!
