Rockies looking at Uggla, Wigginton

Troy Renck of the Denver Post says (via Twitter) that the Rockies, reeling from the loss of top hitter Troy Tulowitzki, are looking at acquiring an infielder. He said they are keeping an eye on the Marlins' Dan Uggla and the Orioles' Ty Wigginton, both of whom are pending free agents for teams going nowhere and could presumably be had for a decent prospect.

Tulowitzki suffered a broken wrist last week and is out for six weeks. The Rockies moved Clint Barmes from second base to shortstop and brought up rookie Chris Nelson to play second.

Rockies place Tulowitzki on DL

The Rockies said they have no timetable for the return of shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, who was placed on the 15-day disabbled list with a broken left wrist on Friday.

Tulowitzki was hit on the wrist by Twins reliever Alex Burnett in Thursday's game and an X-ray on Friday revealed the fracture.

The Rockies are expected to move second baseman Clint Barmes to short to try to make up for Tulowitzki, the Rockies leading hitter. Tulowitzki was hitting .306/.375/.502 with nine home runs and 34 RBI.

Colorado called up infielder Chris Nelson to replace Tulowitzki on the roster.
