The Rockies have signed 39-year old righty reliever Matt Herges to a minor league deal. Herges pitched in 21 games (0 starts) for the Indians earlier this season and he was 2-1 with a 3.55 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP. He was one of their better pitchers this season before getting released. Herges has now pitched in 558 games (4 starts) in his major league career and he is 42-35 with 34 saves, a 3.92 ERA and a 1.44 WHIP. This was a nice low risk pickup for the Rockies as Herges proved that he could handle pitching in Colorado in 2007 and 2008.
