Daniel Schlereth will stay close to home in Colorado to rehab his injured left shoulder after an examination from Rockies team physician Dr. Tom Noonan at the Steadman-Hawkins clinic in Denver revealed no structural damage. Schlereth, who has been diagnosed with left shoulder tendinitis, will work out with physical therapist Mike Allen until he's ready to resume baseball activities.
Ramon Santiago started at shortstop for the third time in seven days Wednesday. Part of it was the matchup against Nick Blackburn, against whom Jhonny Peralta is just 5-for-26. "The other thing," manager Jim Leyland said, "is that we have to try to get Santiago (8-for-52 entering Wednesday) going a little bit, too."
Leyland said Tuesday's comeback victory "was one of the best wins I've enjoyed in my career. ... I think it shows the type of team we have."
