It has been speculated that shortstop Stephen Drew could be traded by the July 31 non-waiver Trade Deadline. Drew is a free agent at the end of the season, though there is a $10 million mutual option for 2013. "I don't even think about the trade talk, to be honest," Drew said. "I just go about my business getting prepared every day to play. I'm with this team until I'm with another team. I'm just trying to prepare myself every day to be the best player I can for this team." Drew, who did not play Monday, is hitting .217 this season with six RBIs. Rockies: Rosario expects to return Tuesday
Rookie catcher Wilin Rosario, who left Friday's game against the Padres after awkwardly twisting his left ankle, has made enough progress to start Tuesday. "I think there's a real good chance we'll have him available to catch tomorrow," Rockies manager Jim Tracy said. "He is available to us. I just didn't want to push him into a bad spot." Worth noting
Rockies first baseman Todd Helton is eligible to come off the disabled list Tuesday, but he won't be activated until Friday when the club returns to Denver. Helton won't play in any more rehab games. After their 6-3 win Monday night, the D-backs have won three straight against the Rockies.
