Todd Helton Placed on Disabled List, Brad Eldred Purchased and Recalled


According to Denver Post author Troy Renck, the Rockies have placed Todd Helton on the 15 Day Disabled list, presumably retroactive to three days ago when he last played. AAA Colorado Springs first baseman Brad Eldred has been recalled, and will start tonight. Eldred was not on the roster, meaning his contract was purchased. This move fills the 40 Man Roster, therefore a corresponding move will need to be made when Taylor Buchholz is activated from the 60 Day DL.

Eldred has hit more home runs than anyone else in the entire Rockies organization this year, with 22. In 74 games at the major league level with the Pittsburgh Pirates, Eldred has hit .199 with 14 home runs and 93 strikeouts.
