DENVER (AP) -The Colorado Rockies recalled right-hander Tim Harikkala from Triple-A Colorado Springs and sent down right-handed pitcher Ryan Speier following their 15-2 win over the Chicago Cubs on Saturday night.
Harikkala, 36, will make his second start in the majors on Sunday in the final game of the Rockies' four-game series with the Cubs.
Colorado signed Harikkala to a minor-league contract July 27, and he went 1-0 with a 0.84 ERA in four games with the Sky Sox. Before signing with Colorado, Harikkala spent most of the previous two seasons pitching for the LG Twins of the Korean Baseball Organization.
Harikkala appeared in 55 games for the Rockies in 2004, all in relief, going 6-6 with a 4.74 ERA. His only start came in 1996 with the Seattle Mariners, when he gave up six runs and four hits in 4 1-3 innings.
Speier was called up from Colorado Springs on Monday. He appeared in four games, going 0-1 with a 7.11 ERA.
