Rockies AFLers

From this morning's 'Rocky':

"KID STUFF: Third baseman Ian Stewart, the Rockies' first-round draft choice in 2003, is among six players the organization will send to the Arizona Fall League.

Closer Jim Miller and catcher Chris Ianetta, both draft choices from a year ago who recently were promoted from Class A Modesto to Class AA Tulsa, also will play for the Peoria Javelinas. Miller was an eighth- round selection out of Louisiana-Monroe. Ianetta was selected in the fourth round out of North Carolina.

The Rockies also are sending right-handed pitchers Ramon Ramirez and Jon Asahina and center fielder Jeff Salazar to the AFL, where Modesto manager Stu Cole will be the bench coach. Ramirez was acquired from the Yankees in the Shawn Chacon trade."
