Updates & News
The Rockies announced that Todd Helton, 39, was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol Wednesday morning.
Helton struggled as he only batted .238 with seven homers in only 69 games. He missed the majority of the season due to hip problems. This news is rather shocking to a guy who has never had any major issues with the law. The Rockies' first baseman is expected to retire following the 2013 season.ANALYST:
Marc Krauss went 1-for-4 with a solo home run on Thursday in Toronto.
Krauss is hitting only .150 with a .350 slugging percentage after launching his first home run of the season. It was just his seventh game of the season, but there’s no doubt he’ll need to cut down on the strikeouts if he’s ever going to be able to showcase the decent pop he has. The left-handed hitter was called up from AAA to try and infuse some offense in Anaheim and was slugging .639 over his past 10 games. With Matt Joyce really struggling, expect Krauss to steal some of his at-bats over the next few weeks. Analysis: Kevin Luchansky
