Garrett Hampson, Rockies infielder, making debut; DJ LeMahieu heads to DL

PHOENIX — The future begins now for Garrett Hampson.

The Rockies’ athletic infield prospect, who began the season at Double-A Hartford before moving up the ladder to Triple-A Albuquerque in May, was promoted to the big-league roster on Saturday.

He’ll start Saturday’s game at second base and bat seventh against Arizona as he makes his big-league debut. Hampson will wear No. 7.

Hampson, 23, has big shoes to fill. He was called up to replace the injured DJ LeMahieu, Colorado’s two-time all-star second baseman who was placed on the 10-day disabled list Saturday because of left oblique strain.
