The Colorado Rockies ink Billy Buckner

The Rockies have signed 27-year old righty starting pitcher Billy Buckner to a minor league deal. Buckner pitched in 3 games (all starts) for the D-Backs last season and he was 0-3 with a 11.08 ERA and a 2.39 WHIP. He has now pitched in 36 games (21 starts) in his first four years in the majors and he is 6-11 with a 6.25 ERA and a 1.64 WHIP. The Rockies will be in trouble if they need Buckner at any point in 2011 because he throws extended batting practice for opposing teams.
