Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Matzek was optioned to Class AAA Friday, May 8, and the Rockies recalled C Wilin Rosario in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Matzek ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) was sporting a 4.09 ERA this year after allowing four earned runs and six walks in his last start Wednesday against the Arizona Diamondbacks. It's unclear who will take his rotation spot. Rosario will likely be a utility option off the Rockies' bench, and he'll come in with a very cheap FantasyScore salary, most likely.

The Colorado Rockies will call up SP Tyler Matzek from Triple-A Colorado Springs to start Wednesday, June 11, and make his major-league debut against the Atlanta Braves.
Fantasy Tip: Matzek, the team's first-round pick in 2009, hasn't set the world ablaze with a 4.05 ERA at Triple-A. However, he's an immediate NL-only pickup with a shot to contribute in mixed leagues down the line.

The Colorado Rockies could look to call up SP Tyler Matzek from Triple-A Colorado Springs or SP Jon Gray from Double-A Tulsa with SP Jordan Lyles (hand) out. They could also insert P Franklin Morales back into the rotation.
Fantasy Tip: The latter two options seem to be a reach. Matzek is 5-3 with a 4.15 ERA and 52 K's in 60 2/3 innings. He'd be worth a look in NL-only formats with some matchup value in mixed leagues.

Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Matzek had a second straight disappointing season in the minors in 2011, but he feels the worst is behind him. "I am about two months ahead of schedule in my throwing program," Matzek said. "A lot of (stuff) hasn't gone my way, but I am still young. I know I can get outs if my mechanics are right." Matzek has focused on his stride direction and not hooking his arm behind his body in his delivery.
