Rockies recall former closer Estevez, put Oberg on DL
MILWAUKEE (AP) The Colorado Rockies have recalled right-handed reliever Carlos Estevez from Triple-A Albuquerque and placed right-hander Scott Oberg on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to Aug. 20, with axillary artery thrombosis in his right arm.
The moves were made Monday before the Rockies' game in Milwaukee.
Estevez went 2-7 with 11 saves and a 5.28 ERA in 49 appearances before being optioned to Albuquerque on Aug. 19. He was replaced as the closer by Adam Ottavino after blowing consecutive saves earlier this month.
Oberg is 1-1 with one save and a 5.19 ERA in 24 appearances with the Rockies this season.
