Saturday Rockpile: Corpas headed to DL, Dodgers overworking their pen?

Corpas likely headed to DL - The Denver Post

Manuel Corpas' MRI yesterday before the game revealed that he has bone chips in his right elbow, which will likely prompt a stint on the 15-day disabled list. The move is not official yet, but if (rather, when) Manny hits the shelf, Juan Rincon seems like the best possible option. He has a 1.84 ERA at Colorado Springs, and has actually had a solid major league career, posting a 3.84 ERA in over 400 appearances with the Twins and Tigers. However, his last good season was 2006 with the Twins, when he went 3-1 with a 2.91 ERA while striking out 65 in 74.1 IP. It looks like we'll get a chance to see if he can find some of that success pitching in the NL.

Inside the Colorado Rockies " Murton, Young Near Sky Sox Records | News and commentary about the Colorado Rockies major league baseball team

Eric Young Jr.'s 42 stolen bases are already a Sky Sox record as an affiliate of the Rockies, but he's also on pace to completely annihilate the all-time franchise record of 51 set by Wayne Kirby in 1992, when the Springs were still an Indians' farm club. Matt Murton's 27-game hitting streak is one game shy of Trenidad Hubbard's all-time record of 28 games, set in Colorado Springs' PCL Championship season of 1995. Murton also set a Sky Sox record for RBIs in a road game, with seven last night at Fresno.
