Baker Ready for Rehab
Infielder Jeff Baker, out since April 27 with a sprained left hand, will join Hi-A Modesto on a minor-league rehab assignment Friday.
Baker is expected to spend the weekend with the Nuts and will then join Triple-A Colorado Springs. The SkySox open a four-game series at Sacramento on Tuesday, which is convenient for the Rockies. They play at Anaheim Monday through Wednesday and then travel to Oakland June 26-28. Baker is eligible to come off the disabled list for the Oakland series.
Catcher Yorvit Torrealba continues to work out with the Rockies. Torrealba, who missed two weeks because of the kidnapping of his son in Venezuela, will continue to work out with the Rockies at Coors Field during the weekend. Before he is removed from the restricted list he will be allowed to play five minor-league games
