Gardner was designated for assignment earlier this week but has cleared waivers and will remain in the organization. It's no surprise, given his 7.01 ERA at Tulsa this season.

Rockies purchased the contract of RHP Joseph Gardner from Double-A Tulsa.

Rockies acquired RHPs Joe Gardner and Alex White, 1B-OF Matt McBride and a player to be named later from the Indians for RHP Ubaldo Jimenez.

Gardner, a 2009 third-round pick, has a 4.99 ERA over 19 starts with Double-A Akron this season, averaging 5.5 K/9 and 4.3 BB/9. Baseball America ranked the 23-year-old as the Indians' No. 9 prospect coming into the season. If he doesn't make it as a starter, his ground ball tendencies could be quite useful out of the bullpen in Colorado.
