Rutledge was sent down to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Wednesday, the Denver Post reports.
Though on pace for a 15 HR/15 SB season, Rutledge had struggled mightily with plate discipline, getting on-base at a .298 clip and showing occasional lapses in the field. The Rockies will likely turn to D.J. LeMahieu for regular duty at second base until Rutledge gets on track in the minors.
