Rockies place OF Dickerson on DL, bring up RHP Miller

DENVER (AP) The Colorado Rockies have placed outfielder Corey Dickerson on the 15-day disabled list and selected the contract of right-hander Justin Miller from Triple-A Albuquerque.

To make room for Miller on the 40-man roster, the Rockies transferred righty Jordan Lyles to the 60-day disabled list. Miller is available for Wednesday night's game against the Astros.

Dickerson missed 23 games while on the disabled list from May 19 to June 11 with the same injury. He was activated Thursday and went 2 for 12 in five games before aggravating the foot injury.

Miller, 28, was 1-3 with a 2.30 ERA in 21 minor league games. Miller appeared in eight games with Detroit in 2014.

The Rockies have a full 40-man roster.
