Omar Quintanilla


The Colorado Rockies activated Quintanilla from the DL on Aug. 4 and optioned him to Triple-A Colorado Springs.


Quintanilla was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right shin contusion on Monday. The Rockies' shortstop took a foul ball off his shin in Saturday's 3-2 loss to Cincinnati.


After a quick start in late July, Quintanilla has struggled with the Colorado Rockies, and the shortstop prospect has seen his average drop to .245. None of his hitting percentages top the .300 mark. Despite his promise, Quintanilla will lose his starting job at short now that rookie Clint Barmes has returned from his collarbone injury.


The promising infield prospect, who was dealt from Oakland to Colorado in the July 13 trade that brought Joe Kennedy and Jay Witasick to the A's, has been recalled by the Colorado Rockies. The 24-year-old Quintanilla ripped it up after joining the Rockies' Triple-A affiliate at Colorado Springs, batting .346 with six extra-base hits and 14 runs scored in 13 games.
