"Getting Tulo back, we're expecting a lot of good things," said Clint Barmes, who will shift from shortstop back to second base and platoon with Jonathan Herrera. "Having him back in our lineup is only going to make us stronger, is only going to make us better. I don't know if you want to say savior or not, but it's pretty important for us to have him back."
"I feel like I'm an everyday shortstop," Barmes said. "I've always believed that and playing with the Rockies these last couple of years, I've looked at myself as a shortstop playing second base. I'm very excited to get the opportunity to play on that side of the field again."
