Helton on the DL

Apparently the Rockies have placed Todd Helton on the 15-day DL.  He was already out of action, with Ryan Shealy starting at first in his place.

Not a lot of ramifications to the move since Helton wasn't playing anyway.  Apparently either Helton's injury is serious enough that he'll need to be out a while, or the Rockies have just plain given up on this season and wanted an excuse to call up Omar Quintanilla.  However, that could have been accomplished by simply DFA'ing Aaron Miles.
