The Rockies have re-signed three players to minor league deals. 32-year old lefty swinging outfielder Scott Podsednik will make the team out of spring training. He played in 93 games for the Rockies last season and he was 41 for 162 (.253 avg, .655 OPS) with 22 runs scored, 1 homer, 15 RBIs and 12 stolen bases. He has now played in 750 games in his major league career and he is 713 for 2,631 (.271 avg, .711 OPS) with 406 runs scored, 28 homers, 201 RBIs and 236 stolen bases. Podsednik gives the Rockies a weapon off of the bench and if anyone gets hurt in the outfield he can step right into the starting lineup and be a asset with his speed. 26-year old righty swinging Edwin Bellorin played in 3 games for the Rockies last season and he was 1 for 3 (.333 avg, .666 OPS). He has now played in 6 games in his major league career in which he is 1 for 5 (.200 avg, .400 OPS). Bellorin also played in 87 games in AAA-ball last season and he was 98 for 335 (.293 avg, .764 OPS) with 28 runs scored, 5 homers and 65 RBIs. 30-year old lefty reliever Cedrick Bowers has also rejoined the Rockies. He pitched in 5 games (0 starts) for the Rockies last season and he 0-0 with a 13.50 ERA and a 2.40 WHIP. Bowers also pitched in 35 games (2 starts) in AAA-ball last year and he was 6-1 with 1 save, a 3.74 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP. Bowers has good stuff as he only allowed 50 hits and whiffed 74 batters last season in 65 minor league innings, but, he will need to clean up his control as he walked 43 batters last year. Walks turn into runs really quickly at Coors Field.
