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.

Wheeler has hit .232/.281/.375 with a pair of homers, 13 RBI and a 12/5 K/BB ratio during his 56 at-bats with the Rockies this season. He will continue to function as organizational depth.

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.

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.

Rockies recalled 3B/1B Ryan Wheeler from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

He'll replace the injured Todd Helton (forearm) on the active roster. Wheeler batted just .239/.294/.339 in 50 games with the Diamondbacks last season, but has posted some big numbers in the Pacific Coast League. It's unclear whether he'll get enough playing time to be relevant in NL-only leagues.
