The Rockies have demoted 27-year old righty swinging catcher Chris Iannetta to AAA and they have recalled 33-year old righty swinging catcher Paul Phillips to replace him on the active roster. Iannetta was off to a very slow start this season for the Rockies. In his first 8 games for the Rockies this year he was 4 for 30 (.133 avg, .569 OPS) with 2 runs scored, 2 homers and 2 RBIs. He just looked uncomfortable at the plate this season as he whiffed 11 times. This move pretty much makes Miguel Olivo the full time catcher as Phillips is nothing more than a backup. Phillips played in 6 games in AAA-ball so far this season and he was 4 of 22 (.182 avg, .445 OPS) with 1 double. He was 0 for 1 in his first game with the Rockies this season. The Rockies hope that Iannetta turns things around soon so he can get back to Denver to help them.
