Just a couple of news and notes from the Rockies’ transactions today.
First off, infielder Alfredo Amezega has cleared waivers and has been assigned to Triple-A Colorado Springs. He hit .242 with just two RBIs in 20 games with the Rockies. With Triple-A Colorado Springs, he hit .364 with one home run and 11 RBIs in 17 games earlier this year.
Pitcher Tyler Matzek has been demoted from Advanced Single-A Modesto to Single-A Modesto after compiling a record of 0-3 with an ERA of 9.82 in 33 innings this season. Matzek is one of the Rockies prized prospects, but has encountered trouble on the road to the Majors.
