The Rockies have placed 25-year old righty starting pitcher Juan Nicasio on the 15-day disabled list due to a left knee strain. Nicasio has pitched in 11 games (all starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 2-3 with a 5.28 ERA and a 1.62 WHIP. He will be replaced in the starting rotation by 28-year old righty Guillermo Moscoso, who has been summoned from AAA. Moscoso has pitched in 9 games (all starts) in AAA-ball for the Rockies this year and he is 4-3 with a 5.54 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP. Moscoso pitched in 2 games (both starts) earlier this year for the Rockies and he was 0-1 with a 11.57 ERA and a 2.14 WHIP. The Rockies hope that Moscoso is better this time around.
