Tyler Chatwood always saw the bullpen as a layover. He is a starter and will now get that chance again, albeit in Triple-A. The hard-throwing right-hander was sent to the Sky Sox today as the Rockies added reliever Edger Escalona to protect a taxed bullpen.

"I understand what they are doing. The bullpen thing was weird because I really didn't have a routine," Chatwood said. "I can learn from this, though. I look forward to starting again."
