DENVER — The Colorado Rockies announced this morning that right-handed pitcher Matt Daley has been recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs. In a corresponding roster move, left-handed pitcher Greg Smith was optioned to the Minor Leagues and will join the Triple-A Sky Sox. Daley will be in uniform for this afternoon’s Rockies vs. Diamondbacks game at Coors Field (1:10 p.m.).

Daley, 27, is 0-1 with a 4.02 ERA (15.2 ip, 7 er) in 19 relief outings for the Rockies this season. He was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs on May 16 when left-hander Jeff Francis was activated from the disabled list. Daley appeared in two games for the Sky Sox, tossing 2.0 scoreless innings with 2 hits allowed and 3 strikeouts. He last pitched on Monday, May 24 at Omaha (1.0 ip, 2 strikeouts). An undrafted free agent out of Bucknell University, Daley has appeared in 76 games for the Rockies since 2009. His 57 appearances in 2009 are the 4th-most by a Colorado rookie pitcher all-time.

Smith, 26, owns a 1-2 record with a 6.23 ERA (39.0 ip, 27 er) in 8 games/starts for Colorado this season. He has not pitched since May 19 at Houston, when he received a no-decision (5.0 ip, 10 hits, 3 runs/earned) in the Rockies’ 7-3 loss. Smith was on the club’s Opening Day roster and started the second game of the season, April 6 at Milwaukee. The left-hander did not appear in the Majors in 2009 after being acquired from Oakland along with Carlos Gonzalez and Huston Street in exchange for Matt Holliday on November 12, 2008.
