SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -Infielder Clint Barmes was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Tuesday by the Colorado Rockies and recalled infielder Omar Quintanilla from the minor league team.
Barmes had been called up two weeks ago when second baseman Kazuo Matsui went on the 15-day disabled list with back spasms. Barmes appeared in 10 games for the Rockies, going 2-for-20.
Quintanilla hit .255 with six RBI in 17 games for Colorado Springs. He started 12 games at shortstop and three at second base.
Matsui was hitting .361 with three RBIs and had five stolen bases in five attempts when he went on the DL on April 15.
