DENVER -- 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.
Brooks spent his High School years in the ABD Baseball program playing for Coach Mike Spiers.
