CINCINNATI (AP) The Colorado Rockies acquired first baseman Cody Decker from the Kansas City Royals in exchange for cash on Wednesday. He was assigned to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Decker, 29, was hitting .278 with three home runs and five runs batted in over seven games with Triple-A Omaha this season.

He signed with the Royals as a free agent after spending seven seasons in the San Diego system, including an eight-game stint with the Padres during which he went 0-for-11 last season.
