Tinoco allowed five runs (four earned) on six hits and a walk while striking out one over 2.2 innings in Game 1 of Monday's doubleheader against the Giants. He was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque following the contest, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Tinoco was shelled in the first game of Monday's twin bill, and as a result, he's been demoted to the minor leagues. Chi Chi Gonzalez was recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding move and will start Game 2.

The Rockies used eight relievers in Friday's 12-inning loss to the Padres, so Tinoco will make his way make to the majors to provide a fresh arm. The 24-year-old has a 4.34 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 19:11 K:BB over 29 innings with Albuquerque and fired a scoreless inning during his major-league debut May 31.

Tinoco was called up from Triple-A on Friday and allowed one hit in a scoreless inning during his lone appearance, which was his major-league debut. The 24-year-old returns to Albuquerque, where he has a 5.04 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 19:11 K:BB over 25 innings.
Tinoco was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday.
Tinoco is in line to make his major-league debut despite accruing a 5.04 ERA with a 19:11 K:BB over 25 innings with the Isotopes this season. With Chris Rusin (back) being activated from the 10-day injured list, Colorado optioned Kyle Freeland and Yonathan Daza to Triple-A in corresponding moves.
Tinoco was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday.
Tinoco got to open camp with the big-league club as a member of the 40-man roster but was never likely to remain there long. The 23-year-old is expected to convert to relief in his first crack at Triple-A action this season.
Tinoco will be a reliever going forward, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Tinoco came over from Toronto in the Troy Tulowitzki trade in 2015. He's had unimpressive results as a starter since then, recording a 4.79 ERA in 26 starts for Double-A Hartford last year. A transition to relief could help him by adding velocity and slimming his arsenal.
Tinoco was added to the Rockies' 40-man roster Monday.
The move was made to protect Tinoco -- who was acquired in the Troy Tulowitski trade in 2015 -- from the Rule 5 draft. The 22-year-old didn't turn any heads with High-A Lancaster last season, posting a 4.67 ERA and 107:50 K:BB across 24 starts (140.2 innings), but he still flashed enough potential for the Rockies to protect him. Look for him to open next season in the lower minors again.
