DENVER (AP) – The Rockies traded minor league pitcher Chris Balcom-Miller to

the Boston Red Sox for Delcarmen and cash on Tuesday.

Rather than have him fly all the way to San Francisco, the

Rockies had Delcarmen meet them in Denver, where they returned for

one day to play a makeup game against the wild card-leading

Philadelphia Phillies before flying back to California for a

crucial three-game set against the NL West-leading San Diego

Padres.

Delcarmen was 3-2 with a 4.70 ERA in 48 games for Boston this

season. He was a key member of the Red Sox bullpen for several

years, and pitched in Boston's sweep of Colorado in the 2007 World

Series.
