Rockies Place Jonathan Sanchez On DL, Recall Tyler Chatwood

The Colorado Rockies officially announced the call up of pitcher Tyler Chatwood on Sunday. Recently acquired pitched Jonathan Sanchez has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with bicep tendinitis.

The Rockies acquired Sanchez from the Kansas City Royals in exchange for Jeremy Guthrie -- one of the biggest disappointments for the Rockies in 2012 -- back in July. Sanchez is 0-3 in three starts for the Rockies, allowing five, six and two runs, respectively, in those games. He has a 9.53 ERA with the Rockies and an 8.07 ERA overall this season.

Chatwood has had two stints with the Rockies, both as a reliever, but this will be his first start with them. He holds a 7.62 ERA.
