With Brendan Rodgers’ call-up, Rockies reinstate Jake McGee, option DJ Johnson and Pat Valaika

The Rockies made the promotion of top prospect Brendan Rodgers official Friday in Philadelphia, and announced three corresponding roster moves.

Left-handed reliever Jake McGee was re-instated from the injury list, as a left knee sprain had kept the 32-year-old out of action since early April. He has only made two appearances on the season, allowing no runs.

To clear roster space for Rodgers and McGee, Colorado optioned right-handed reliever DJ Johnson and infielder Pat Valaika to Triple-A Albuquerque. Both players have made two stints with the Rockies this season but have under-performed — Johnson with a 9.26 ERA after making the opening day roster and Valaika with a .069 average in 29 at-bats.
