The Colorado Rockies will call up right-handed reliever Miguel Castro and three other players from Triple-A Albuquerque prior to the team's doubleheader against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday, according to MLB.com's Dargan Southard.

Castro will join Isotopes teammates Cristhian Adames, Rex Brothers and Wilin Rosario when the Rockies take the field for Game 1 at 1:10 p.m. MT. In addition, left-handed reliever Boone Logan will likely be activated from the disabled list in time for the twin bill, per Southard.

One of three prospects acquired from the Toronto Blue Jays in the Troy Tulowitzki trade, Castro has allowed three earned runs in 13⅓ innings (1.32 ERA) since joining organization. He's struck out 10 batters and walked seven during that time. The 20-year-old native of the Dominican Republic has 12⅓ major league frames under his belt, posting a 4.38 ERA with 12 strikeouts and six walks for the Jays earlier this season.

Adames was named to the All-PCL team on Monday after hitting .311/.362/.438 as a 23-year-old in Triple-A. Profiling as a utility infielder at the next level, Adames has one hit in 15 major league plate appearances, all of which came at the tail end of last season.

Brothers and Rosario both spent time with the Rockies this season and have been key contributors to the big league club for the past several seasons. Both players have had mixed results in Triple-A; Rosario hit .297/.329/.534 while brushing up on his first base skills while Brothers struck out 13 batters per nine innings but also walked a batter per frame and posted a 4.46 ERA.

Logan has been dominant against left-handed hitters this season but has actually faced more righties, against whom the 31-year-old veteran has been lit up to the tune of a .338/.408/.529 line. Logan was placed on the DL on Aug. 14 with left elbow inflammation.

The fact that there will be people who will actually take No. 1 seriously is maddening, but it'll happen, probably on Facebook. Watch.
