33-year old righty reliever Joel Peralta has rejected an outright assignment to the minors thus becoming a free agent. Peralta did not pitch too well for the Rockies last season. He worked in 27 games (0 starts) for the Rockies in which he was 0-3 with a 6.20 ERA and a 1.58 WHIP. He has now pitched in 221 games (0 starts) in his major league career and he is 4-11 with 2 saves, a 4.61 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP. Peralta will get another shot on a minor league deal over the winter but the Rockies won’t miss him too much.
