The Rockies have signed 30-year old righty reliever Juan Rincon to a minor league deal. Rincon pitched in 7 games (0 starts) for the Tigers earlier this season and he was 1-0 with a 5.23 ERA and a 1.74 WHIP. The Rockies hope that Rincon will help them at some point down the road this season as he used to be a very effective reliever earlier in his career. Rincon has pitched in 416 games (3 starts) in his major league career and he is 32-27 with 3 saves, a 3.84 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP. This was a nice low risk/high reward signing for the Rockies.

The Rockies have placed reserve infielder Jeff Baker on the 15-day disabled list with a left hand sprain. Baker has played in 12 games this season for the Rockies and he is 3 for 23 (.130 avg, .384 OPS) with 3 RBIs and 1 stolen base. The Rockies have recalled outfielder Matt Murton to replace Baker on the active roster and he’s off to a nice start. In Murton’s first 2 games with the Rockies he is 2 for 5 (.400 avg). Murton was also very hot in AAA-ball this season playing in 18 games in which he was 30 for 73 (.411 avg, 1.134 OPS) with 18 runs scored, 4 homers and 19 RBIs. Murton should do a solid job for the Rockies this season.
