 DENVER (AP) -The Colorado Rockies set their opening day roster Sunday by signing left-handed reliever Micah Bowie and outfielder Scott Podsednik to major league contracts and placing right-handed pitcher Jason Hirsh on the 15-day disabled list due to a strained right shoulder.
Hirsh, expected to be the Rockies' No. 4 pitcher, hasn't pitched since March 1, when he strained his rotator cuff.
Bowie went 4-3 with a 4.55 ERA in 30 games, including eight starts, for the Washington Nationals last year. He signed a minor league deal with Colorado in the offseason with an invitation to spring training, as did Podsednik.
Podsednik, who was released by the Chicago White Sox after two injury-filled seasons, beat out incumbent Cory Sullivan for the Rockies' fifth outfielder spot.
The Rockies will begin the season with 38 players on the club's 40-man roster.
