Rockies Designate Al Alburquerque For Assignment

The Rockies have designated righthander Al Alburquerque for assignment according to The Denver Post's Troy Renck (via Twitter). The move helps clear roster space for Juan Rincon and Paul Phillips.

Alburquerque, 24 in June, was originally acquired in the Jeff Baker trade last summer. He had been working in relief for Colorado's Double-A affiliate this season, allowing eight runs with a 5/4 K/BB ratio in 4.1 innings. Baseball America ranked Alburquerque as Rockies' 20th best prospect in their Prospect Handbook, noting that he has touched 99 with his fastball in the past.
