The Rockies have signed 32-year old righty reliever Chris Sampson to a minor league deal. Sampson pitched in 35 games (0 starts) for the Astros last season and he was 1-0 with a 5.93 ERA and a 1.68 WHIP. He has now pitched in 174 games (33 starts) in his first five years in the majors and he is 20-15 with 3 saves, a 4.42 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP. Before last season, Sampson wasn’t too bad of a middle reliever and the Rockies will give him a chance to earn a job in the pen this spring.
