The Rockies have signed 31-year old righty swinging Josh Phelps to a minor league deal. He played in 17 games in Rookie + A-ball last season and he was 13 for 53 (.245 avg, .748 OPS) with 10 runs scored, 2 homers, 6 RBIs and 1 stolen base. Phelps last played in the majors in 2008 with the Cardinals. He has now played in 465 games in his major league career and he is 380 for 1,394 (.273 avg, .815 OPS) with 198 runs scored, 64 homers and 244 RBIs. I like this signing for the Rockies as it gives them quality depth in AAA.
