DENVER (AP) -The Colorado Rockies put right-handed pitcher Josh Fogg on the 15-day disabled list Monday because of a strained left groin.
Colorado called up righty Ryan Speier from Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Fogg was injured while running to first base on a bunt attempt in his start last Tuesday in Arizona. The move is retroactive to May 23.
Fogg is 1-5 this season with a 4.53 ERA in 10 appearances.
``We don't feel the pitching is a problem,'' manager Clint Hurdle said. ``But the complications that can come from moving off the mound, we felt liked we'd error on the side of caution.''
The Rockies called up the 27-year-old Speier for the second time this season. He was with the team from April 21-28 and had a 15.43 ERA in three appearances.
Speier had 12 saves and a 2.60 ERA with Colorado Springs this season. With Manny Corpas out of town until Wednesday to attend a funeral, Hurdle said Speier's role is undefined.
``We have Speier up here to provide bullpen insurance,'' Hurdle said. ``We didn't want to be caught short, just in case. Speier has been on a very nice role in Colorado Springs.''
