Player News - Rockies

Date: Team: Pos:

According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, Jorge De La Rosa has been informing interested teams that he's willing to work out of the bullpen as a multi-inning reliever.

De La Rosa hasn't been a popular name in the early free agent market, but could prove to be useful in a swing role with the ability to work multiple innings or get left-handers out. The 35-year-old registered a 5.51 ERA, 1.64 WHIP and 108/63 K/BB ratio across 134 frames with the Rockies in 2016.

Rockies non-tendered RHP Matt Carasiti.

The 25-year-old hurler appeared in 19 games for the Rockies in 2016, registering a frightening 9.19 ERA and 2.30 WHIP across 15 2/3 innings. He'll look to latch on elsewhere, presumably on a minor league pact.
Dec 3 - 9:07 AM

Rockies non-tendered 1B Stephen Cardullo.

The 29-year-old makes for an interesting low-cost investment on the free agent market or as a non-roster invitee. He slashed an impressive .308/.367/.522 with 17 homers, 72 RBI and six stolen bases in 452 plate appearances at Triple-A Albuquerque in 2016.
Dec 3 - 8:45 AM

Rockies and LHP Jake McGee avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $5.9 million contract.

McGee flamed out in his first season with the Rockies, losing his closer job while posting a 4.73 ERA over 57 appearances. They didn't want to let him walk for nothing, however, so he'll return in a setup role in 2017.
Dec 2 - 6:03 PM

Rockies and RHP Jordan Lyles avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $3.175 million contract.

Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reported the terms involved. Lyles earned $2.975 million this past season while posting a 5.83 ERA and 32/28 K/BB ratio over 58 2/3 innings, mostly in a relief role. Despite the rough year, the Rockies resisted non-tendering him and gave him a slight raise in the process. He was arbitration-eligible for the final time this winter.
Nov 30 - 1:27 PM

Rockies signed INF Derrik Gibson to a minor league contract.

The 27-year-old was a second-round selection of the Red Sox from the 2008 draft but has yet to pan out as hoped. He spent the 2016 season in the Mets' organization where he slashed .281/.363/.362 with two homers, 35 RBI and 14 stolen bases in 107 games at Double-A Binghamton.
Nov 26 - 9:28 AM

Rockies signed INF Josh Rutledge to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

It's a homecoming for Rutledge, who was originally drafted by the Rockies in 2010 and spent the first three seasons of his career with the club. The 27-year-old appeared in 28 games with the Red Sox this past season while batting .265/.345/.388 in 56 plate appearances. He could be in the mix for a utility infielder job in spring training.
Nov 23 - 3:17 PM

Carlos Gonzalez told Venezuelan journalist Wilmer Reina that the Rockies are interested in negotiating an extension.

CarGo indicated that nothing was imminent in regard to the possibility. The 31-year-old has one year remaining on his seven-year, $80 million contract with the Rockies. There's been some speculation about the possibility of a trade this winter, as the Rockies have plenty of outfield depth with CarGo, Charlie Blackmon, David Dahl, and Gerardo Parra. It doesn't sound like a move to first base will be in CarGo's future, so something will have to give here.
Nov 22 - 1:34 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal was told by one source that Nick Hundley is the Orioles' "Plan A" as they look for a catcher.

He says Hundley is "Plan B" for "several clubs," but Baltimore is apparently higher on the backstop. Dan Connolly of BaltimoreBaseball.com reported earlier Monday that the O's had interest in Hundley, who played for the Orioles for half of the 2014 season. He batted .260/.320/.439 with 10 homers for the Rockies last season.
Nov 21 - 4:27 PM

According to Dan Connolly of BaltimoreBaseball.com, the Orioles have shown interest in reuniting with free agent backstop Nick Hundley.

The Orioles have a glaring need behind the plate with Matt Wieters expected to leave as a free agent this winter and Caleb Joseph coming off of an extremely disappointing 2016 season. With top prospect Chance Sisco penciled in as the catcher of the future, the O's are looking for a short-term fix and Hundley, who spent the 2014 season in Baltimore, could be their man.
Nov 21 - 9:13 AM

Rockies re-signed OF Rosell Herrera to a minor league contract.

Rather than leaving as a minor league free agent, the 24-year-old has opted to remain with the Rockies for another season. In 126 games at Double-A Hartford he slashed .292/.374/.379 with five homers, 66 RBI and 36 stolen bases.
Nov 19 - 10:28 AM

Rockies purchased the contract of LHP Sam Moll from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Moll, 24, held a 4.94 ERA and 39/19 K/BB ratio over 47 1/3 relief innings for Albuquerque this past season. He figures to get a shot in the majors at some point in 2017.
Nov 18 - 1:17 PM

Rockies purchased the contract of RHP Zach Jemiola from Double-A Hartford.

Jemiola, 22, posted a 4.39 ERA and 92/46 K/BB ratio across 162 frames for Hartford this past season. The Rockies now won't have to worry about losing him in the Rule 5 Draft.
Nov 18 - 1:15 PM

Rockies purchased the contract of RHP Rayan Gonzalez from Double-A Hartford.

Gonzalez, 26, held a 3.19 ERA with 49 strikeouts over 52 relief frames for Hartford in 2016. He could make it to the big club in 2017.
Nov 18 - 1:12 PM

Rockies purchased the contract of RHP Shane Carle from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Carle, 25, posted a 5.42 ERA in a tough environment for pitchers in 2016. He's now protected from the Rule 5 Draft.
