As rockhead pointed out in this a.m.'s Rockpile, we've got a more firm confirmation that Ian Stewart, as well as Seth Smith, will be playing for the Rockies this afternoon. Smith, in fact, gets put into the starting lineup with Brad Hawpe still ailing from a nagging hamstring problem.
UPDATE: According to the official press release, which I'll post in the comments, Hawpe and Barmes are the two to go on the DL, with Hawpe being put on retroactively to Wednesday.
