San Diego, CA (Sports Network) - Colorado Rockies pitcher Roy Oswalt was
placed on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain on Monday.
Oswalt left Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks in the second inning. He
uncorked a wild pitch with two outs in the bottom of the second, allowing
Arizona to score the first run of the contest.
The 35-year-old right-hander signed a minor-league contract with Colorado on
May 2. The team purchased Oswalt's contract on June 20 and he went 0-4 with a
7.64 earned run average in four starts.
The Rockies recalled outfielder Charlie Blackmon from Triple-A Colorado
Springs to fill the roster spot.. Over 12 games with Colorado this season,
Blackmon is batting .240 with one home run and two RBI.
