    The Rockies acquired corner infielder Ryan Wheeler from the D-backs for left-handed pitcher Matt Reynolds on Tuesday, only hours before the deadline for submitting the 40-man protection roster. Reynolds, 28, went 3-1 with a 4.40 ERA in 71 appearances for the Rockies in 2012. In '11, Wheeler set a Rockies Double-A record with 33 home runs for the Tulsa Drillers. Called up by the D-backs on July 20, he hit .239 in 50 games with one home run and 10 RBIs, playing mostly at third base. Major League regulations stipulate that any player who signed his first professional contract before age 19 and has been in the organization for five years, or who signed after age 19 and has been in the organization for four years, is eligible to be selected in next month's Rule 5 Draft, if not protected.
