The Rockies recalled Tinoco from Triple-A Albuquerque on Sunday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
He'll assume the active roster spot of fellow reliever Carlos Estevez (personal), who was placed on the family medical leave list. The 24-year-old Tinoco yielded eight earned runs on 14 hits and four walks across 13 innings in his seven appearances with the big club earlier this season.
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 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 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.
