Rockies Activated Spilborghs, Recall Two Others

DENVER (AP) - The Colorado Rockies activated outfielder Ryan Spilborghs from the 15-day disabled list today and recalled pitcher Steve Register and catcher Edwin Bellorin from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Spilborghs was placed on the disabled list on July 9th with a left oblique strain. Before his injury, Spilborghs was hitting .314 with six home runs and 33 RBIs in 72 games.

Register is making his second appearance on the Rockies' roster this year. He was called up August 4th and struck out the only batter he faced before being reassigned to Colorado Springs two days later.

Bellorin was also recalled on June 15th but did not play in a game before being sent back to Colorado Springs. In 2007, he played in three games for Colorado and had no hits in two at-bats.
