The Colorado Rockies transferred first baseman Todd Helton to the 60-day disabled list while placing Edger Escalona on the 15-day DL, the Denver Post reported Saturday.
Helton, who had surgery on his right hip, was already ruled out for the remainder of the season. Escalona went on the DL for right elbow inflammation.
The Rockies called up right-hander Will Harris from Class AAA Colorado Springs to take Escalona's spot on the 25-man roster.
Helton hit .238 with seven homers and 37 RBI in 240 at-bats this season for Colorado.
