Rockies Recall Charlie Culberson

The Colorado Rockies have recalled second baseman Charlie Culberson from the Triple-A Colorado Springs Sky Sox, according to the MLB.

Culberson, 23, was drafted in the first round by the San Francisco Giants in the 2007 MLB Draft out of Calhoun High School. Rated the seventh-best second base prospect before the 2012 season by MLB.com, Culberson made his MLB debut on May 13, 2012 for the Giants.

In six games for the Giants, Culberson had three hits in 23 plate appearances with one RBI and no runs scored. The Rockies acquired Culberson at the trade deadline in July, sending Marco Scutaro to the Giants in exchange for the second base prospect.

In 121 games at the Triple-A level this season, Culberson has hit .298 with 12 home runs and and 65 RBIs. Since being traded to the Rockies organization, Culberson is hitting .344 with a .832 OPS with Colorado Springs.

The Rockies have lost four of their last five games and open a four-game series against the Giants on Monday.
