Rox continue to juggle lineup

DENVER (AP) - The Colorado Rockies have juggled their lineup against Philadelphia with Carlos Gonzalez out of the country, Troy Tulowitzki day to day with a strained thigh muscle, Brad Hawpe back from an injury and Todd Helton getting a mental break.

The best news for the Rockies was Monday's MRI for Tulowitzki revealed only a minor strain of his right quadriceps. Manager Jim Tracy says the shortstop won't need a DL trip but will rest for a couple days.

Hawpe returned from the 15-day disabled list but the Rockies didn't have to send anyone to the minors to make room for him because they were able to place Gonzalez on the three-day bereavement list. Gonzalez is attending the funeral of an uncle in Venezuela.
