49 Garrett Atkins, Col, 3B No. 33 in Y! game has potential to gain 2B eligibility w/ Tulo injury

Is this really a possibility?
Anyone from Colorado know, or is this just weird BS?

I haven't heard anything about Atkins move to 2B (which I assume would mean Stewart comes up.) But I had just posted the below as a new thread when I saw this one about Akins posted. So I deleted my post in an effort not to create too many Rockie Infield threads:

We have had three threads recently about the Rockies infield (see links below) but the situation may have changed (yet again) so I'm not sure they fit anymore.

After Tulo went down, it became clear Stewart wasn't coming up and most folks seemed to think that Barmes was going to be at SS with Baker (if he recovered from his popped blood vessel) at 2B. Well, the last few games seem to be a platoon. With a RHP, Jonathan Herrera (switch hitter) and Omar Quintanilla (lefty hitter) got the starts. Against a LHP, the righty hitters Baker and Barmes.

Anyone (Rockie Homers? ACS?) read/heard anything about this? Are the Rockies saying anything officially about 2B/SS?

As a reference, here are the previous threads:

Ian Stewart (Merged) - acs was first! viewtopic.php?f=7&t=341719

Could Barmes become relevant again?

He played 2B the game Tulo got hurt and a lot of people thought he'd stay there. He didn't, they called up a pair of minor leaguers. It's extremely unlikely he'll see enough 2B time to gain eligibility in Yahoo.

With Quintinilla, herrera, and barmes I doubt he plays 2B again but its a possibility.

I guess if you start with Quintinilla at SS and Barmes at 2B then one gets injured and Herrera takes his spot then needs to be pinch hit for our something.

I doubt this happens much though
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment
