DENVER (AP) -Colorado Rockies pitcher Jason Hirsh was placed on the 15-day disabled list Thursday with a broken right leg.
Hirsh was hit by J.J. Hardy's line drive in the first inning Tuesday night against Milwaukee, but remained in the game and pitched six innings for the win. Afterward, X-rays revealed a fractured right fibula. It's uncertain how long the right-hander will be sidelined.
Acquired from Houston in an offseason trade that sent pitcher Jason Jennings from Colorado to Houston, Hirsh is 5-7 with a 4.81 ERA in 19 starts this season.
Colorado also optioned catcher Alvin Colina to Triple-A Colorado Springs. Colina spent one day with the club and did not appear in a game.
The Rockies filled the roster spots by purchasing the contracts of infielder Clint Barmes from Colorado Springs and catcher Geronimo Gil from Diablos Rojos del Mexico of the Mexican League.
Barmes had 10 home runs and 40 RBIs in 98 games at Colorado Springs. Gil was hitting .396 with 12 homers and 44 RBIs in 75 games with Diablos del Mexico.
