Amezaga was designated for assignment by the Marlins earlier this week. The 33-year-old utility man batted just .182/.247/.195 over 87 plate appearances between Florida and Colorado this season. His versatility doesn't justify a major league roster spot at this point.

Marlins acquired INF-OF Alfredo Amezaga from the Rockies for INF Jesus Merchan.

Amezaga was a super sub with the Marlins from 2006-2009 before spending most of the past two years in the minors in the Dodgers' and Rockies' organizations. He'll fill the same role again while Emilio Bonifacio takes over at second base following Omar Infante's injury.

Alfredo Amezaga has been dealing with calf and big toe injuries.

Amezaga has value as a utilityman that can play every position but pitcher and catcher, but he's fallen behind due to these ailments in his bid to win a roster spot. It's not clear when he'll be ready to return to the field.

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.

According to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com, The Rockies are considering Alfredo Amezaga, Cristian Guzman and Aaron Miles for a possible backup infielder role.

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.

According to Dejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the Pirates have interest in Alfredo Amezaga.

Amezaga hasn't appeared in a major league game since undergoing microfracture surgery on his left knee in July of 2009. He signed a minor league contract with the Dodgers in February, but appeared in just one game with Triple-A Albuquerque. He may have to prove he is healthy before getting a new deal.
