DENVER (AP) -The Colorado Rockies optioned infielder Omar Quintanilla to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Tuesday and recalled right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez from the same minor league team.
The 23-year-old Jimenez joined the Rockies in Pittsburgh for his first stint in the major leagues this season. He went 8-5 with a 5.85 ERA in 19 starts at Colorado Springs, holding opponents to a .279 batting average. He's gone 5-2 with a 3.54 ERA over his last seven starts.
Jimenez made his major league debut last September, going 0-0 with a 3.52 ERA in two appearances.
Quintanilla appeared in one game in his second stint with the Rockies, as a pinch-runner in the ninth inning Sunday at Milwaukee. He had been called up Friday to take the roster spot of injured reliever Brian Fuentes. In 15 games for the Rockies this season, Quintanilla has hit .256 with two RBIs.
