The Rockies have purchased the contract of 28-year old starter/reliever Matt Belisle and they have designated 25-year old righty reliever Juan Morillo to make room on the roster. Belisle pitched in 6 games (all starts) for the Reds last season and he was 1-4 with a 7.28 ERA and a 1.79 WHIP. He has now pitched in 132 games (43 starts) in his major league career and he is 16-22 with 1 save, a 5.06 ERA and a 1.49 WHIP. Belisle could start or relieve for the Rockies giving the pitching staff more options. Morillo pitched in 52 games (0 starts) last season for the Rockies and he was 1-0 with a 5.28 ERA and a 1.83 WHIP. Morillo whiffed 55 batters but he walked a stunning 56 in only 59.2 innings last season. He also pitched in 1 game for the Rockies last season working a scoreless inning allowing 1 hit.
