Diamondbacks signed INF Ryan Wheeler to a minor league contract.

Angels claimed INF Ryan Wheeler off of waivers from the Rockies

Rockies designated INF Ryan Wheeler for assignment.

Colorado needed to open a spot on the 40-man roster to add Pedro Hernandez for Thursday's start, and Wheeler became the victim. The 25-year-old slashed .232/.281/.375 across 64 plate appearances. Since he can't play up the middle, that won't cut it.

Ryan Wheeler went 2-for-4 with a grand slam in Thursday's loss to the Brewers.

Wheeler blasted a go-ahead grand slam in the fourth inning off of Wily Peralta, giving the Rockies a 4-3 lead, but it wasn't a lead the Rockies would maintain. Wheeler has had scant playing time since being recalled on June 4, but he has a .273/.333/.485 slash line with two home runs and 12 RBI in 39 plate appearances.

Rockies recalled INF Ryan Wheeler from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Wheeler was 2-for-4 in a short stay with the Rockies earlier this season. The 25-year-old will serve as infield depth in his second stint with the big-league club. He could see regular playing time at third base while Nolan Arenado (finger) is sidelined, but isn't worth consideration outside of deep NL-only fantasy formats.

Rockies optioned INF Ryan Wheeler to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

The Rockies have called up Nick Masset in order to get a fresh arm for their bullpen. Wheeler was with the big club over the weekend and hit a solo homer on Saturday. However, it wasn't enough to keep his roster spot.

Wheeler posted an outstanding .339/.383/.554 batting line in 60 plate appearances this spring in the Cactus League, but the Rockies couldn't find a spot for him on their bench. The 25-year-old is better off getting regular playing time at the Triple-A level anyway.
