The Colorado Rockies have designated 27-year old righty reliever Felipe Paulino for assignment. Paulino pitched in 18 games (0 starts) for the Rockies this year and he was 0-4 with a 7.36 ERA and a 2.05 WHIP. He gave up 23 hits and he walked 7 batters in his 14 2/3 innings for the Rockies so he wasn’t throwing many strikes or missing many bats when he did. Some team will probably claim Paulino off waivers.
UPDATE: (5/27/2011) – The Rockies have dealt Felipe Paulino to the Royals for some cold, hard cash.
