DENVER (AP) – The Colorado Rockies have recalled left-handed reliever Rex Brothers from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Brothers was available to pitch Saturday against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Brothers started the season on the Rockies’ opening-day roster. In 22 appearances, he went 2-2 with a 5.87 ERA, striking out 21 in 15 1-3 innings. He was sent down on May 20 and had a 1.69 ERA in four games at Triple-A.
