Ryan Speier recalled; Joel Peralta optioned to Colorado Springs

Ryan Speier will finally get his chance to prove his worth to the big league club, as the Rockies recalled the soon-to-be 30 year old righty from Colorado Springs. Speier posted a 4.80 ERA and a 1.73 WHIP in 17 appearances with the Sky Sox. He struck out 11 and walked 8 in 15 innings pitched.

To make room for Speier, the Rockies optioned Joel Peralta to the Springs. Peralta pitched well upon being called up to the big club earlier in the season, but has struggled of late - particularly in his last two outings, where he allowed four runs on six hits while only recording four outs. Last night wasn't the first time the D-Backs got to Peralta, either; on July 4th, five Snakes reached against him and all of them came around to score.

Speier last pitched on Sunday against Fresno, so it's conceivable that he could go tonight if needed. Hopefully, that won't be the case.
