The Colorado Rockies have placed infielder Jonathan Herrera on the 60-day disabled list with a fractured right index finger. The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for right-handed reliever Jim Miller, who was recalled along with catcher Wilin Rosario and catcher/infielder Jordan Pacheco on Tuesday.

Herrera, 26, spent the entire season with the Rockies after making his first Opening Day roster. He hit .242 with three homers, 14 RBI and 28 runs scored in 104 games with the Rockies.

Rosario and Pacheco are both in the Tuesday’s starting lineup: Rosario catching and Pacheco at third base.
