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 31⁄3. 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.
