Phoenix, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - The Colorado Rockies placed right- handed pitcher Adam Ottavino on the 15-day disabled list Monday due to right triceps inflammation.
The 29-year-old veteran has been one of the league's best relievers in April, striking out 13 batters and only allowing three hits and two walks in 10 1/3 scoreless innings. Ottavino recorded three saves after replacing LaTroy Hawkins in the closer's role.
To take Ottavino's place on the active roster, Colorado called up right-handed pitcher Jorge Rondon from Triple-A Albuquerque. In 6 2/3 innings for the Isotopes, he allowed one run.
The Rockies also activated right-handed pitcher David Hale from the 15-day DL and optioned him to Albuquerque.
