The Colorado Rockies sign Luis Vizcaino

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page by chinmusic on Friday 21 December 2007 at 5:43 pm

The Rockies have signed righty reliever Luis Vizcaino to a 2-year, $7.5 million dollar contract. Vizcaino pitched in 77 games last season for the Yankees and he was 8-2 with a 4.30 ERA and a 1.45 WHIP. Vizcaino has now pitched in 485 games in his major league career and he is 33-25 with 7 saves, a 4.25 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP. Vizcaino will likely take over LaTroy Hawkins spot as the 7th inning man for the Rockies.

Kip Wells signs on with the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page by chinmusic on Friday 21 December 2007 at 5:39 pm

The Colorado Rockies have signed veteran starter Kip Wells to a 1-year contract. Wells pitched in 34 games (26 starts) last season for the Cardinals and he was 7-17 with a 5.70 ERA and a 1.62 WHIP. Wells has now pitched in 231 games (203 starts) and he has a 64-91 record with a 4.63 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP. Maybe the Rockies will wave their magic wand and Wells will turn his above average stuff into good results…but it’s a long shot.

The Colorado Rockies sign Mark Redman

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page by chinmusic on Friday 21 December 2007 at 5:36 pm

The Rockies have re-signed lefty starter Mark Redman to a 1-year, $1 million dollar contract. He will compete for the #5 starter job on the Rockies and he pitched well for them last season. Redman pitched in 11 games (8 starts) last season for the Braves & Rockies and he was 2-4 with a 7.44 ERA and a 1.84 WHIP. Redman has now pitched in 209 games (194 starts) in his major league career and he is 66-80 with a 4.75 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP. Redman should have a good shot in Spring Training to win a job in the rotation.

The Colorado Rockies sign a couple free agent pitchers

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page by chinmusic on Friday 21 December 2007 at 5:31 pm

The Rockies have signed lefties Chris George and John Koronka to minor-league contracts. George has not pitched in the majors since 2004 with the Royals. He has pitched in 47 games (44 starts) in his major league career and he is 14-20 with a 6.48 ERA and a 1.66 WHIP. John Koronka started 2 games last season for the Rangers and he was 0-2 with a 7.84 ERA and a 2.03 WHIP. Koronka has now pitched in 29 games (28 starts) and he has a 8-11 record with a 6.02 ERA and a 1.59 WHIP. The Rockies better hope that they don’t have to use either of these guys next season.
