Morales to throw three innings; Street to face hitters

May 29, 2010 | 4:51 pm  

Reliever Franklin Morales is scheduled to pitch three innings Sunday for Triple-A Colorado Springs as the Colorado Rockies continue to stretch him out on his minor league rehab. The intent is that more work will help Morales refine his mechanics.

Morales is on the disabled list with left shoulder inflammation and last pitched for the Rockies on May 5. He gave up one hit with two strikeouts in two scoreless innings Thursday in his first rehab appearance for the Sky Sox, throwing 14 of 23 pitches for strikes.

Huston Street threw 15 pitches in a bullpen session today. He is scheduled to throw to hitters Monday at Colorado Springs. Street, who began the season on the disabled list with right shoulder inflammation, is recovering from a groin strain that he sustained on his fifth pitch in a rehab appearance May 15 for Double-A Tulsa.
