The Rockies claimed infielder Ryan Rohlinger off of waivers from the Giants, according to Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle (on Twitter). The Giants designated Rohlinger and Henry Sosa for assignment last week to create 40-man roster space for Brandon Crawford and Chris Stewart.
Rohlinger, 27, appeared in one game with the Giants this year, but he has spent most of his season at Triple-A Fresno, where he has a .174/.294/.331 line with more walks (19) than strikeouts (14) in 144 plate appearances as a shortstop and third baseman. He has a .267/.350/.435 line as a minor leaguer since the Giants drafted him five years ago.
Even after making the claim, the Rockies have room on their 40-man roster.
