The Colorado Rockies announced on Sunday that outfielder Brad Hawpe will begin a rehabilitation assignment with the Colorado Springs Sky Sox Monday night. Hawpe, 28, will play for the Sky Sox against the Sacramento River Cats (Triple-A affiliate of the Oakland A’s) in the team’s 7:05 PM start at Security Service Field.

The Forth Worth, TX native will be returning to a ballpark where he’s had success. In 2004, with the Sky Sox, Hawpe hit .322 with a career-best 31 home runs in just 92 games before heading to the big league club for good. Hawpe did, however, play seven games for Colorado Springs on a rehab stint in August 2005,

The Rockies drafted Hawpe out of LSU in the 11th round of the 2000 amateur draft. Hawpe was placed on the disabled list with a right hamstring strain on May 24. Before his injury, he was hitting .231 with three home runs and 17 RBI in 42 games.

    Even though the Rockies are 10 games back, I can still see them surpassing the D-backs towards Wild Card run. Dodgers are playing well thus far and are only going to do better. But it's not impossible for the Rockies to win the NL West. They should pick it up as soon as Holiday returns. With the line up of Taveras, Barmes (until Tulowitzki's return), Holiday, Helton, Atkins, Hawpe, Stewart - it'll be tough for opposing pitchers to stop them.

    The Colorado Rockies have thousands of fans all over the world. Here, I may consider myself as one of the big fans of this wonderful team. Whenever I’ve time I try to attend their games, though sometimes it becomes a little difficult to get Rockies tickets and this is due to these great fans that the team has. Colorado Rockies tickets are a little pricy or hard to be found but the team, as a professional and essential team of MLB, worth any price to watch their games. And when we love a team we try as much as possible these financial obstacles.
