Rockies signed INF-OF Alfredo Amezaga to a minor league contract.

The deal also comes with an invitation to spring training, where Amezaga will attempt to land a spot on the Rockies' Opening Day roster as a utilityman. The 33-year-old sat out the majority of the 2010 season while recovering from microfracture surgery on his left knee, but he's healthy now and capable of playing all around the field. Maybe luck will be on his side.

Troy Renck of the Denver Post has confirmed that the Rockies are pursuing free agent utilitymen Alfredo Amezaga and Aaron Miles.

Renck writes that Amezaga "appears to be their first choice," as he probably should be. Even though the 33-year-old didn't play in the major leagues last season while rehabbing from microfracture surgery, he is capable of playing all over the diamond. Miles, meanwhile, is an extremely poor defender who hasn't hit a home run since 2008. He may be the least skilled player in MLB.

Get excited. None are difference-makers, but they can at least play multiple positions in the infield. Amezaga was the definition of a super-sub during his time with the Marlins, also playing all three outfield spots, but he hasn't appeared in a major league game since undergoing microfracture surgery on his left knee in July of 2009.

Amezaga hasn't appeared in a major league game since undergoing microfracture surgery on his left knee in July of 2009.
