Rockies’ recall Corey Dickerson, place Brett Anderson on DL


The Colorado Rockies optioned outfielder Corey Dickerson to Triple-A Colorado Springs a week ago today after activating Boone Logan from the disabled list.

Now today, the Rockies announced that they will call up Dickerson once again from Triple-A Colorado Springs in order to replace someone who was recently injured. The man who he will be replacing is left-handed pitcher Brett Anderson.

Dickerson seen five at-bats before he was sent down last Monday. He was able to only pick up one hit, while striking out once on a batting line of .200/.300/.200. Last season he finished with five home runs and 17 RBI’s through 199 at-bats with the Rox.

Anderson was placed on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 13. Anderson suffered a broken left index finger during an at-bat and could end up missing anywhere between four-six weeks. With Anderson out of the rotation, Franklin Morales will take his spot in the starting five until he returns.

 

Anderson carries a 0-2 record with a 3.60 ERA in three starts this season. He’s only managed to make it through 15 innings of work and has been charged with six earned runs off 16 hits.
