The Colorado Rockies placed Yorvit Torrealba on the 15-day disabled list because of a torn ligament in his left knee last night.

The injury occurred sometime before the game, according to team spokesman Jay Aviles, although the details were not yet known.

The Rockies purchased the contract of Adam Melhuse from Triple-A Colorado Springs. Melhuse was hitting .311 with three homers and 16 RBI in 32 games with the Sky Sox.

Torrealba was hitting .246 with six home runs and 31 RBI in 70 games. He had lost the starting job to Chris Iannetta.
