Rockies signed RHP Josh Roenicke to a minor league contract.

He's expected to head to Triple-A Colorado Springs. Roenicke was released by the Nationals last week after posting a 5.45 ERA over 15 starts and eight relief appearances this season in Triple-A. The 32-year-old previously pitched with the Rockies from 2011-2012, but he's minor league depth this time around.

Nationals signed RHP Josh Roenicke to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

The brother in law of new teammate Ian Desmond, Roenicke put up a 4.35 ERA and 1.60 WHIP in 63 appearances last season for the Twins. His velocity has steadily declined the last few years, making him just organizational depth at this point.

According to Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish, reliever Josh Roenicke has interest from a "handful of teams."

Roenicke posted an ugly 4.35 ERA and 1.60 WHIP in 63 appearances last season for the Twins. The 31-year-old right-hander will likely have to settle for a minor league contract and spring training invite.

Twins sent RHP Josh Roenicke outright to Triple-A Rochester.

Roenicke appeared in 63 games for the Twins this season, owning a 4.35 ERA and 1.59 WHIP over 62 innings. The move was made to clear space on the 40-man roster, and the 31-year-old will likely resurface somewhere next season.

Josh Roenicke was perfect for 1 1/3 innings out of the pen Monday against the Tigers.

Roenicke was awfully valuable out of the pen for the Rockies last year, throwing 88 2/3 innings with a 3.25 ERA, but they decided to waive him over the winter. Claimed by the Twins, he has a 1.50 ERA in 12 innings so far this year. Meanwhile, the Rockies' bullpen imports have ERAs of 6.75 (Wilton Lopez) and 8.53 (Chris Volstad).

He'll take the place of Jason Hammel (paternity leave) on the active roster. Roenicke, 29, hasn't given up a run over 8 1/3 innings with the Rockies this season while striking out eight and walking three. He should stick with the big club down the stretch.

Blue Jays recalled RHP Josh Roenicke from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Roenicke, 27, posted a 7.13 ERA and 1.76 WHIP in 13 relief appearances after being acquired from the Reds in the Scott Rolen trade last July, battling elbow soreness. The 6-foot-3 sinkerballer had 8 2/3 scoreless innings under his belt with Triple-A Las Vegas to begin the season. It's unlikely that he finds himself in the mix for saves anytime soon, but he profiles in the back end of a bullpen in the long-term.
