Torres sent down following doubleheader

DENVER -- The Rockies recalled right-handed pitcher Carlos Torres from Triple-A Colorado Springs to serve as the 26th player for Monday's doubleheader. New Collective Bargaining Agreement rules allow a team an extra player for a doubleheader as long as the twin bill is not rescheduled for the day after a scheduled game is called off.

Torres, 29, spent 11 days with the Rockies earlier this month and gave up one run on two hits and two walks, with three strikeouts, in three appearances. At Colorado Springs, Torres was 2-1 with a 2.45 ERA.

Torres saw brief time with the White Sox in 2009 and 2010 and is 1-3 with a 6.46 ERA in 16 appearances, including six starts.

Torres did not pitch in either game of the doubleheader, and was sent back to Colorado Springs following the nightcap.
