Rockies select contract of right-hander Brooks Pounders

Posted: Updated:

The Colorado Rockies selected the contract of right-hander Brooks Pounders from Triple-A Albuquerque.
The 27-year-old Pounders will be available Tuesday night when the Rockies host the San Diego Padres. Pounders made seven relief appearances for Albuquerque this season with four walks, nine strikeouts and a 3.60 ERA. He signed a minor league contract with the Rockies last December.
A California native, Pounders appeared in the majors last season with the Los Angeles Angels. He was originally a second-round pick by Pittsburgh in 2009.
In other moves, righty Scott Oberg was optioned to Albuquerque and righty Zach Jemiola was designated for assignment.
Oberg has appeared in 10 games this season for Colorado with a 1-0 record and a 6.55 ERA.
