The Rockies have acquired 36-year old righty reliever Octavio Dotel from the Dodgers for a player to be named later. Dotel has pitched in 60 games (0 starts) for the Pirates and Dodgers this year and he is 3-3 with 22 saves, a 3.99 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP. He has now pitched in 622 games (34 starts) in his major league career and he is 49-42 with 105 saves, a 3.75 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP. Dotel has whiffed 1,009 batters while only allowing 663 hits in 829 career innings in the show. This was a good pick-up for the Rockies who needed some help in the bullpen but Dotel won’t be elgible for the playoffs if the Rockies make them.
