Colorado Rockies infielder Brendan Rodgers was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday with a left hamstring strain, and the team called up infielder Ezequiel Dover from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Action with Rodgers backfired on Monday. He left Sunday’s game early at the Chicago Cubs with a hamstring strain.

Dover batted .318 in 66 games with Double-A Hartford before a groin injury sidelined him for more than two months. He was reinstated from the injured list last week and was assigned to Albuquerque, where he was 7-for-21 with a home run and two RBIs in five games before being called up.

The 21-year-old is the Rockies’ no. 2 opportunity and no. 40 prospects overall in ESPN’s midseason update last month.
