The Rockies have signed 43-year old righty reliever Mike Timlin to a minor league deal. Timlin has not pitched this season yet. In 47 games (0 starts) for the Red Sox last season, Timlin was 4-4 with 1 save, a 5.66 ERA and a 1.62 WHIP. Timlin has now pitched in 1,058 games in his major league career and he is 75-73 with 141 saves, a 3.63 ERA and a 1.28 WHIP. This was another low risk signing that could pay some dividends later this season.
UPDATE: The Rockies have released Timlin at his request. He pitched in 6 games (1 start) in Rookie + AAA ball this season and he was 0-0 with a 2.70 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP.
