DENVER (AP) _ The Colorado Rockies placed catcher Yorvit Torrealba on the 60-day disabled list.

The move came one day after the team announced that Torrealba's season had ended because of a strained right shoulder. He hit .247 with seven home runs and 43 RBIs in 65 games with the Rockies.

The Rockies have purchased the contract of catcher Alvin Colina from AA Tulsa, where he hit .254 with 12 home runs and 46 RBIs in 92 games.
