• Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, working his way back from left groin surgery in June, ran on dirt for the first time on Wednesday morning. He ran the bases and worked on double plays. Tulowitzki is scheduled to accompany the team on a road trip to New York and Chicago next week. He'll continue working out, and at some point will be a candidate for a Minor League injury rehab assignment.

• When the Rockies called up righty Guillermo Moscoso from Triple-A Colorado Springs to start Wednesday's game, they designated righty reliever Mike Ekstrom (0-0, 6.23 ERA in 15 games) for assignment.
