Rockies transactions: Rockies option 4, assign 3 to minor league camp

The Rockies now have 50 players in major league camp

The Rockies announced a few transactions Saturday morning. They have optioned the following members of the 40-man roster:

  • RHP Zach Jemiola (Triple-A Albuquerque)
  • RHP Jesus Tinoco (Double-A Hartford)
  • C Chris Robago (Double-A Hartford)
  • OF Yonathan Daza (Double-A Hartford)

Each of the optioned players were recent adds to the 40-man roster. Jemiola pitched six innings for the Rockies thus far, while Tinoco has pitched just 313. Daza has played in 13 games, but he’s only gotten 19 plate appearances. Still, he’s hit well in those appearances, and he looks to be a possible source of outfield depth, especially since he’s just about the only right-handed outfielder the Rockies employ.

The club has additionally trimmed the number of players in major-league by assigning the following players to the minor-league side:

  • RPH Peter Lambert
  • C Dom Nuñez
  • OF Sam Hilliard

These non-roster invitees (and PuRPs) will get more playing time in minor-league camp as the regulars will look to get more playing time over the next few weeks.
