Alex White Activated, Edgmer Escalona To 15-Day DL and Juan Nicasio To 60-Day DL

The Colorado Rockies did some housekeeping in preparation for Alex White's debut on Tuesday night. In order to activate White, the Rockies placed Edgmer Escalona on the 15-day disabled list with a right rotator cuff strain. Juan Nicasio was moved from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day list while he recovers from a broken neck.

Nicasio's move the 60-day is not unexpected, as it opens up a spot on the 40-man roster. Escalona's injury doesn't appear serious, but a trip to the disabled list isn't bad for him. White will be activated from the 60-day disabled list, having had a finger injury back in May.

Tuesday's game is scheduled to being at 6:40 p.m. MT. Get a ticket to the game if you still can. Don't you want to be there when Alex White makes his Colorado Rockies debut? It only happens once!
