Rockies make several moves as rosters expand

DENVER (AP) - The Colorado Rockies have promoted infielder Jordan Pacheco and right-hander Jim Miller from Triple-A Colorado Springs, and brought up catcher Wilin Rosario from Double-A Tulsa.

Pacheco and Rosario are slated to make their major league debut against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night.

The Rockies also announced left-hander Drew Pomeranz, acquired in the deal that sent Ubaldo Jimenez to Cleveland, will make his major league debut Sunday when he starts against the Cincinnati Reds.

Pacheco hit .278 with 50 RBIs in 97 games for Colorado Springs. Rosario hit .249 with 21 homers and 48 RBIs in 102 games for Tulsa. Miller went 8-5 with a 5.25 ERA in 65 games for the Sky Sox.

The Rockies recalled Pacheco and Rosario, and selected Miller's contract.

Infielder Jonathan Herrera (right index finger fracture) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list to make room for Miller on the 40-man roster.
