DENVER (AP) -The Colorado Rockies optioned catcher Chris Iannetta to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Monday.
Iannetta was hitting .179 with two home runs and 15 RBIs in 51 games with the Rockies. He was backing up Yorvit Torrealba.
``We need to get him at-bats,'' manager Clint Hurdle said. ``It's up to him get those at-bats, get into a comfort zone and re-establish his confidence.''
Colorado also purchased the contract of catcher Edwin Bellorin from Colorado Springs. Bellorin had nine homers and 45 RBIs and hit .326 in 59 games with the Rockies' top farm club.
``Edwin has done everything we've asked of him at Triple-A,'' Hurdle said. ``He's thrown well and been an offensive player for them and we'll get him involved here.''
