That'll be off the hook if he gains 2b eligibility!

If he does, his value will skyrocket due to his bat and position flexibility.

On Yahoo, I am pretty sure he would need to start another 4 games at 2B to become eligible for the rest of the season. But if he did, ooooh boy :-D

You're right. He does need to put in some games to gain the eligibility, do you guys know how long Tulu and Jeff Baker are out?

"Atkins could remain at second base in the short term, with prospect Ian Stewart manning third base, or Atkins could reclaim his typical position. That depends on the extent of the Rockies' injury problems and the corresponding roster moves that they elect to make."
