The Rockies have signed 33-year old switch hitting 2B/SS/OF Alfredo Amezaga to a minor league deal. Due to a knee injury last season he only played in 1 game in AA-ball for the Dodgers in which he went 2 for 2 with 1 run scored and 1 RBI. He last played in the majors back in 2009 for the Florida Marlins. Amezaga has played in 544 games in his first 8 years in the majors and he is 334 of 1,331 (.251 avg, .652 OPS) with 167 runs scored, 12 homers, 106 RBIs and 49 stolen bases. Amezaga can play everywhere but pitcher, catcher and 1B so he could be valuable to the Rockies’ bench in 2011 if he makes the team out of spring training.
