The Colorado Rockies have transferred first baseman Todd Helton to the 60-day disabled list, more than a month after the slugger was put on the 15-day disabled list.

The last time Helton played was July 2 against San Diego, two days before he was first put on the disabled list with a strained lower back.

The Rockies announced Helton's transfer to the 60-day list on Sunday.

The 34-year-old entered the season with a .332 batting average but was hitting just .266 with seven homers at the time of his injury.
