Rockies recall RHP Escalona from minors

DENVER (AP) - The Colorado Rockies have recalled right-handed reliever Edgmer Escalona from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

He's expected to be in uniform Tuesday night against the San Diego Padres.

The 25-year-old Escalona had two saves for the Sky Sox and didn't allow a run in five innings.
