Alex White, Christian Friedrich To Be Called Up, According To Report

The Colorado Rockies will call up the young arms from Triple-A Colorado Springs to fill in for the empty rotation spots. Alex White and Christian Friedrich are expected to pitch on Tuesday and Wednesday, according to the Denver Post's Troy Renck:

White joined the Rockies last July as part of the Ubaldo Jimenez trade with the Cleveland Indians. He didn't have a great time with the Rockies last August and September, going 2-4 with an 8.42 ERA in seven starts. He allowed 12 home runs over 36.1 innings. He has a 2.92 ERA over five starts for Colorado Springs.

Friedrich was Colorado's first-round draft choice in 2008 and had been slowed down by injuries. He will make his major league debut on Wednesday if this report holds true. Through five starts, he has a 3.00 ERA in 30 innings pitched, striking out 27 and walking just four batters.

Charlie Blackmon apparently broke the news earlier in the afternoon:
