Talented left handed pitcher Franklin Morales was optioned down to AAA Colorado Springs immediately after the Colorado Rockies' 13-3 loss to the San Diego Padres.
Morales, who has filled essentially every role in the bullpen this season, had struggled since his return from the 15 Day disabled list with arm fatigue on June 2.
Taking his place on the major league roster is right handed pitcher Esmil Rogers. Rogers was on the roster Opening Day against Milwaukee as a long man out of the bullpen, but had recently been optioned down. He has struggled during his last two weeks as a starter for Colorado Springs, but had shown quite a bit of promise in the major league bullpen.
