Iannetta Is Back In The Bigs

By  | 

Chris Iannetta started at catcher for the Colorado Rockies today after he was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs late last night.

The Rockies placed catcher Geronimo Gil on waivers.

Iannetta was 2-for-5 with a double and two RBIs in the Rockies' 10-5 win over the Washington Nationals today.

Iannetta was sent down to Triple-A on August 6th. He was the Rockies' opening-day catcher but lost his job to Yorvit Torrealba after he struggled at the plate. He was hitting .179 with two home runs and 15 RBIs when he was sent down.

Gil was an emergency call-up when Edwin Bellorin injured his left hamstring on August 8th. Gil played in five games for the Rockies and had one hit.
