After Monday's loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks, Colorado Rockies manager announced the following call-ups for Tuesday: reliever Jim Miller, utility player Jordan Pacheco and catcher Wilin Rosario. Additionally, Drew Pomeranz will join the Rockies on Tuesday, but he will not be activated, reports Inside the Rockies.
Miller went 8-5 with a 5.25 ERA and 24 saves for the Triple-A Colorado Springs Sky Sox. He was named a Pacific Coast League All-Star. He struck out 73 batters in 72 innings.
Pacheco was one of the stars of spring training, but ultimately the Rockies kept Ian Stewart on the roster over him. He hit .278 with a .721 OPS. He's more than likely to play the field than be the backstop for the Rockies.
Rosario, 22, didn't put up a great line, just .248/.284/.457, but the slugging works well. He hit 21 home runs for the Double-A Tulsa Drillers. His 91 strikeouts might be a bit disconcerting.
Pomeranz threw three perfect innings and struck out three before he reached his pitch count limit. He was done after 46 pitches.
