Colorado Rockies Bring Up P Will Harris, Place Edgmer Escalona On 15-Day DL

The Colorado Rockies announced a roster transaction on Saturday before a game against the San Francisco Giants: Reliever Will Harris has had his contract selected from the Triple-A Colorado Springs Sky Sox. Because Harris in not on the 40-man roster, the team has to make two other transactions to make this possible.

Todd Helton, who is out for the season following hip surgery, was moved from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day one. That clears the spot on the 40-man roster. Edgmer Escalona was placed on the 15-day disabled list with Olecranon Bursa inflammation in his right arm, opening up a spot on the active roster.

Harris, 27, will be available to pitch on Saturday. He has split the 2012 season between Double-A Tulsa and Triple-A Colorado Springs. After posting a 2.62 ERA and 46 strikeouts in 34.1 innings with Tulsa, Harris moved up to Triple-A. In 17.2 innings, he has put up a 1.02 ERA and struck out 20.

Escalona rejoined the Rockies in August and pitched on the 4th and 5th, but hasn't been on the mound since then. He has an 11.88 ERA in nine appearances.
