Rockies released RHP Danny Graves.

Graves gave up six earned runs and had a 0/7 K/BB ratio in four innings this spring.

Danny Graves could soon work in a game after missing the last week with a strained oblique.

He can't afford to take too much more time off if he's going to have any chance of securing a spot in the Colorado pen. Still, he's probably Triple-A bound regardless.

Rockies signed RHP Danny Graves to a minor league contract and invited him to spring training.

If he makes the team, Graves will receive a $600,000 contract and a chance to earn $400,000 in incentives. The 33-year-old Graves had a 5.79 ERA in 14 innings for the Indians and a 4.01 ERA in 51 2/3 innings with Triple-A Buffalo last season.

The Rockies are set to sign free agent Danny Graves to a minor league deal.

Graves ended up with a 5.79 ERA in 14 innings for the Indians and a 4.01 ERA in 51 2/3 innings with Triple-A Buffalo last season. He's probably done as a useful reliever.

Danny Graves has filed for free agency.

After a 1-1, 4.01 season at Triple-A in which he gave up 55 hits in 51 2/3 innings, it's hard to imagine the 33-year-old reliever garnerning much interest.

Danny Graves, who cleared waivers on Tuesday, accepted an assignment to Triple-A Buffalo.

Graves was designated for assignment Friday after posting a 5.79 ERA in 13 relief appearances for Cleveland.

Danny Graves cleared waivers and may agree to report to Triple-A Buffalo.

"I think there's a good chance Danny will do that," general manager Mark Shapiro said. "I'd like to see him go and get the work he needs." The Indians designated Graves for assignment last week.

Indians designated RHP Danny Graves for assignment.

Graves had a 5.79 ERA and a 1.64 WHIP in 14 innings. Maybe he'll find work elsewhere, but nothing he's done this year suggests that he has much left.
Fri, May 12, 2006 11:11:00 PM

Indians purchased the contracts of RHP Danny Graves and outfielder Todd Hollandsworth.

Graves gave up 18 hits and walked five in 14 2/3 innings this spring, so he still doesn't seem like a very good bet, though he's only going to be the last man in the Cleveland pen. If he struggles at all, the Indians won't stick with him for long.

Danny Graves will be the last man in the Cleveland pen, manager Eric Wedge revealed today.

Jason Davis will be optioned to Triple-A. Steve Karsay can become a free agent since he isn't going to make the team. Graves shouldn't have any fantasy value at all.
Wed, Mar 29, 2006 07:25:00 PM

Danny Graves gave up three runs in an inning against the Reds today, but manager Eric Wedge said he pitched better than that.

Austin Kearns' solo homer off him was wind-aided. "He was down in the strike zone today and threw a couple good sinkers and a couple good breaking balls," Wedge said. "The end result wasn't an indication of how he pitched. For whatever reason, the ball is really flying out of right field here this year." Jason Davis pitched two scoreless innings today and Steve Karsay added a scoreless frame, so the competition for the vacancy in Cleveland's pen remains muddled.

Danny Graves and Steve Karsay threw two scoreless innings apiece against the Jays today.

It was a major league game, but the Indians were facing Triple-A talent. With a 2.31 ERA in 11 2/3 innings, Graves has emerged as the favorite to act as the final reliever in the Cleveland pen. Karsay has a 6.00 ERA in 12 innings. Jason Davis, who got the final out today, has a 3.77 ERA in 14 1/3 innings.
Fri, Mar 24, 2006 06:02:00 PM

Danny Graves has the edge over Steve Karsay for the final spot in the Indians' bullpen.

Graves has been touching 90 on radar guns and has a much improved sinker. Karsay will likely return to the minors for a month or so to work on his control issues.
Sun, Mar 19, 2006 10:31:00 AM

Danny Graves was credited with a victory after pitching a scoreless eighth inning against the Yankees today.

Since giving up two runs in his first appearance of the spring, Graves has allowed only an unearned run in four innings. He's one of four pitchers in the running for the vacancy in the Cleveland pen.
