DENVER (AP) -- The Colorado Rockies won't have third baseman Ian Stewart in their starting lineup when they face the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday afternoon.

Ty Wigginton got the start at third base ahead of Stewart, who's been dealing with a tight left hamstring. Also, newcomer Jose Lopez gets the start at second base ahead of Jonathan Herrera.

The Diamondbacks are keeping shortstop Stephen Drew out of their starting lineup. He's been dealing with a strained abdominal muscle.

Willie Bloomquist will start in place of Drew, who will be available for pinch hitting duties.
