|Dan O'Dowd won't likely be able to survive 2012 season result|
Injuries have been an undeniable reality this season (Jhoulys Chacin, Jorge De La Rosa, Juan Nicasio and Troy Tulowitzki the chief ones) but failed pitching has been the biggest and most glaring one and that's where O'Dowd again is seen as being accountable.
Rockies' Prospects Spotlight
Double-A shortstop Josh Rutledge hit his 13th homer on Sunday, his 27th double on Monday and now with five hits combined in those two games, has his average up to .309. He's hitting .406 in July. Rutledge keeps chugging on towards a locker at Coors' Field.
Clark has 18 homers and 67 RBI this season and is his last 140 games at Modesto over the last two years, his totals are impressive - 30 doubles, 25 homers, 100 RBI. The problem is he's just a .244 hitter and one with 155 strikeouts.
A 12th-round pick in the 2009 draft, "Diesel" just doesn't hit for enough average to go along with his attractive power to profile as a success at Double-A next season.
