Athletics claimed OF Kent Matthes off waivers from the Rockies; optioned him to Triple-A Sacramento.

Matthes was just optioned to Triple-A by the Rockies last week. The 27-year-old owns a .275/.332/.505 batting line over parts of five seasons in the minors and will serve as organizational depth with his new club.

Rockies optioned OF Kent Matthes to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Matthes made the most of his brief action this spring, picking up four hits -- including a homer -- in 11 at-bats, but he never had a real shot to crack the Opening Day roster. The 27-year-old has a shot to make his big league debut sometime this season, though.

Rockies purchased the contract of OF Kent Matthes from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

The Rockies wanted to protect Matthes from the Rule 5 Draft in December after he hit .281/.334/.503 between Double-A and Triple-A this season. The 26-year-old will likely have a chance to earn a spot with the team in spring training.
