Rockies purchase Stults’ contract, option Reynolds

The Colorado Rockies purchased the contract of left-handed

pitcher Eric Stults from Triple-A on Sunday and optioned righty

Greg Reynolds to the team’s top farm club.

Stults was 4-4 with a 5.21 ERA in 37 games at Colorado Springs.

He has spent parts of four seasons in majors, all with the Dodgers

from 2006-09, where went 8-10 with a 4.84 ERA with 63 walks and 98

strikeouts in 35 games, 24 of them starts.

Reynolds was recalled Saturday to start the Rockies’ game

against the Royals. He got the win in Colorado’s 9-6 victory over

Kansas City, giving up five runs and eight hits in five innings to

improve to 3-0.

To make room for Stults on the 40-man roster, the Rockies

transferred right-hander Matt Daley from the 15-day disabled list

to the 60-day DL.
