DENVER - The Colorado Rockies on Wednesday selected the contract of right-handed relief pitcher Justin Miller from Triple-A Albuquerque. Additionally, the club has placed outfielder Corey Dickerson on the 15-day disabled list with plantar fasciitis in his left foot and transferred right-handed pitcher Jordan Lyles from the 15-day to the 60-day disabled list.
Miller, 28, is in his first year with the Rockies after signing a Minor League contract with the club on Nov. 19, 2014. Miller went 1-3 with a 2.30 ERA (27.1 IP, 7 ER), 11 walks and 30 strikeouts in 21 combined appearances between Triple-A and Double-A, making 15 appearances with Albuquerque (0-2, 3.24) and six with New Britain (1-1, 0.84). He made his Major League debut on April 18, 2014 with Detroit and went 1-0 with a 5.11 ERA (12.1 IP, 7 ER) in eight appearances as a member of the Tigers.
Dickerson, 26, was activated from the disabled list June 11 after being placed on the 15-day DL May 19 with the same injury. In 38 games with the club this season, he is hitting .299 (38-for-127) with eight doubles, two triples, five home runs and 16 runs batted in. Since making his debut with the Rockies in 2013, he has hit .297 (225-for-757) with 34 homers and 109 RBI.
The 24-year-old Lyles moves to the 60-day disabled list after successful surgery on his left great toe. He suffered the injury in the first game of the May 23 doubleheader vs. San Francisco in the fourth inning and reinjured the toe May 31 at Philadelphia. Lyles was 2-5 with a 5.14 ERA (49.0 IP, 28 ER) with 19 walks and 30 strikeouts on the season.
The Rockies have a full 40-man roster.
