 DENVER (AP) -The Colorado Rockies optioned outfielder Sean Barker to Triple-A Colorado Springs following Friday night's 12-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Devil Rays and called up outfielder Cory Sullivan.
Barker was 0-for-2 and was hit by a pitch in three plate appearances with the Rockies.
``I got a chance to see what players do at this level,'' Barker said. ``I know I have to do what I had been doing in the minors and hope to get back up here quickly.''
The 27-year-old Sullivan was Colorado's starting center fielder in 2006. He has a career .280 average in 265 games over two seasons.
Sullivan was batting .262 with a homer and 21 RBIs in 53 games with Colorado Springs.
