The Colorado Rockies demoted struggling right-hander Alex White on Monday evening after the 23-year old posted a 6.45 ERA and 1.66 WHIP over 10 starts. Now we know who will be taking White's spot on the roster. Zach Putnam, come on down.
As expected, #Rockies fill Alex White's roster spot with reliever Zach Putnam, who's called up from Triple-A.— Patrick Saunders (@psaundersdp) June 26, 2012
