DENVER (AP) -- The Rockies optioned Guillermo Moscoso to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Saturday after the right-hander struggled in his two starts with Colorado.

Moscoso was 0-1 with an 11.57 ERA since replacing right-hander Jeremy Guthrie in the rotation. Guthrie remains on the 15-disabled list with a shoulder injury sustained in a fall from his bicycle.

In a separate move, the Rockies placed outfielder Eric Young Jr. on the bereavement list.

The Rockies also recalled right-hander Adam Ottavino and infielder/catcher Jordan Pacheco from Colorado Springs.

Ottavino had been with Colorado Springs since being claimed off waivers by Colorado following his April 3 release by the St. Louis Cardinals. He has appeared in 10 games with the Sky Sox, all in relief, going 0-0 with a 3.60 ERA.

Pacheco has batted .433 with three home runs and 10 RBIs in 17 games with the Sky Sox.
