The Rockies have placed starter Rodrigo Lopez and reliever Ramon Ramirez both on the 15 day disabled list. Lopez has tightness in his right elbow. It’s a shame that Lopez hurt himself because he’s been really pitching good so far this season. In three starts, Lopez has compiled a 1-0 record with a 1.59 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP. Ramirez has a sprained right elbow and it’s hard to pitch with that. Ramirez was also off to a great start as he was 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 0.53 WHIP in 7 games so far this season. The Rockies have recalled Ryan Speier and Bobby Keppel to take the roster spots of Lopez & Ramirez.
