The Rockies have placed 25-year old righty reliever Edgmer Escalona on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 6th, due to right elbow inflammation. Escalona has pitched in 9 games (0 starts) so far this year for the Rockies and he is 0-1 with a 11.88 ERA and a 1.92 WHIP. Despite his rough time so far this year, the Rockies still have high hopes for him. Escalona has now pitched in 28 games (0 starts) in his first three years with the Rockies and he is 0-1 with a 3.83 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP. The Rockies have called up 27-year old righty reliever Will Harris to replace Escalona in the bullpen. Harris pitched in 44 games (0 starts) in AA+AAA-ball for the Rockies this year and he was 4-1 with 1 save, a 2.08 ERA and a 0.92 WHIP. Harris gave up 35 hits and walked 13 batters in 52 innings in the minors this year while whiffing 66 batters, which is downright impressive. Harris has now pitched in 187 games (0 starts) in his first six years in the minors and he is 13-13 with 11 saves, a 2.66 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP. The Rockies hope that Harris is ready for his first shot at the majors.
