More injury news for the Colorado Rockies – the ball club placed reliever Brooks Brown on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation on Thursday.

Christian Bergman was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque to fill the opening in the Rockies’ bullpen.

Brown recently spent three weeks on the DL dealing with the same issue before being activated on May 23. The right-handed pitcher owns a 3.86 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP with 15 strikeouts and 11 walks in 23 1/3 innings out of the bullpen this season. At this point, it isn’t clear how long the Rockies will be without Brown.

Bergman returns to the Rockies after being sent down to Triple-A exactly one week a go. The righty has a 4.18 ERA with a 20/7 K/BB ratio over 32 1/3 innings this season with the Rockies.

Bergman was impressive in his only start at the Triple-A level on Monday. The 27-year-old struck out four batters and allowed one hit over the course of three scoreless innings in a 3-0 win over El Paso. He also went 1-for-1 at the plate and scored a run.

The versatile pitcher has been used mostly as a reliever this season, but Bergman has shown he has starter stuff as well. In his only start for the Rockies this season, he threw four scoreless innings in a win over the San Francisco Giants.
