#Rockies place LHP Jonathan Sanchez on 15-day DL with bicep tendinitis. Recall RHP Tyler Chatwood. Chatwood (#32) will start today vs. SF.
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.
