The Colorado Rockies made another roster move during the day on Thursday, placing reliever Brooks Brown on the disabled list with a shoulder issue.

Brooks Brown is back on the 15-day disabled list for the second time this year with right shoulder inflammation, in a move made today in Denver before the Colorado Rockies’ game against the Houston Astros.

In a corresponding move, Christian Bergman was recalled from AAA Albuquerque, where he threw three innings in one start earlier this week after being sent down to extend his innings and return as a possible starter.

For the time being, it would seem that Bergman will remain in the bullpen, though, as the long reliever.

This is the second time that Brown has been on the disabled list this season, once again dealing with a right shoulder injury, after seeing time on the DL in May with the same inflammation.

Obviously, the Rockies are hoping he can get right and help the bullpen later this summer, after struggling to loosen up in the bullpen and seeing a downturn in his velocity in his last few outings.
