MORGANTOWN, W.Va.–Former West Virginia University baseball standout Harrison Musgrave has been promoted to the Colorado Rockies on Monday to replace lefty Chris Rusin, who was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a right intercostal strain.
Musgrave was 0-1 with a 3.38 ERA in three starts at Triple-A Albuquerque.
The 6-foot-1, 205-pound left-hander was an eighth round draft pick by the Rockies in 2014.
During his tenure with the Mountaineers, Musgrave finished with an overall record of 9-1 and 2.17 ERA as a sophomore, earning Big 12 Pitcher of the Year honors. As a junior, he posted a 5-3 record and 2.62 ERA and was a named to the 2014 All-Big 12 Second Team.
Colorado began using the 26-year-old in relief situations in Spring Training. He was typically used a starter prior to that.
