Newman Gets Call Up
Former Ohio State pitcher Josh Newman has returned to the Majors, joining Nick Swisher as the only Buckeyes in the bigs. Newman spent his first full day in the Rockies clubhouse Wednesday. He got the call to join the big league club in the middle of Triple-A Colorado Springs' day game Tuesday and arrived in Denver midway through Tuesday's game. It's Newman's second time up with the big league club. He pitched 2.0 innings in two appearances in a September callup last season. He appeared in seven games for the Sky Sox this year, yielding two runs in 8.1 innings.
