PHOENIX (AP) - The Colorado Rockies placed infielder Kazuo Matsui on the 15-day disabled list on Sunday because of back spasms.

The Rockies called up middle infielder Clint Barmes from Triple-A Colorado Springs to take Matsui's roster spot.

Matsui left Saturday night's game against Arizona in the bottom of the fifth inning. He was hitting .361 with three RBIs and had five stolen bases in five attempts on the season.

Matsui has had back problems in the past. He was acquired by the Rockies from the New York Mets last June. He signed a one-year contract with Colorado in the offseason.
