The Rockies have lost 25-year old righty reliever Zach Putnam on waivers to the Cubs. Putnam pitched in 2 games out of the pen for the Rockies last year and he was 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 2.00 WHIP. He also pitched in 49 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball last year and he was 3-4 with 12 saves, a 4.15 ERA and a 1.65 WHIP. Putnam has now pitched in 10 games (0 starts) in his first two years in the majors and he is 1-1 with a 4.82 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP. This isn’t much of a loss for the Rockies moving forward.

The Colorado Rockies have a trio of free agents heading into this winter

The Colorado Rockies have a trio of free agents heading into this winter. This is who I see staying and leaving out of this bunch:

Jason Giambi: 41-year old lefty swinging 1B Jason Giambi played in 60 games for the Rockies last year in which he was 20 for 89 (.225 avg, .675 OPS) with 7 runs scored, 1 homer and 8 RBIs. Giambi has already been interviewed for the Rockies’ open spot at manager. VERDICT: STAYING AS MANAGER OR RETIRING AS A PLAYER

Jeff Francis: 31-year old lefty starting pitcher Jeff Francis pitched in 24 games (all starts) for the Rockies last year and he was 6-7 with a 5.58 ERA and a 1.48 WHIP. The Rockies front office wants Francis back for some reason. VERDICT: STAYING

Jonathan Sanchez: 29-year old lefty starting pitcher Jonathan Sanchez was a complete bust last year. He pitched in 3 games (all starts) for the Rockies last year and he was 0-3 with a 9.53 ERA and a 2.29 WHIP. Sanchez pitched in 15 games (all starts) overall for the Royals and Rockies last year and he was 1-9 with a 8.07 ERA and a 2.09 WHIP. VERDICT: LEAVING

31-year old lefty starting pitcher Jorge De La Rosa has exercised his 2013 player option worth $11 million bucks. De La Rosa only pitched in 3 games (all starts) for the Rockies last year and he was 0-2 with a 9.28 ERA and a 1.78 WHIP. He missed most of last season while he was rehabbing from Tommy John Surgery. De La Rosa has now pitched in 94 games (88 starts) in his first five years with the Rockies and he is 39-28 with a 4.48 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP. De La Rosa is #9 in games started (88), tied for #6 in wins (39) and he is #6 in strikeouts (492) in Colorado Rockies’ history. The Rockies need all of the help that they can get in the starting rotation for 2013, so they hope that De La Rosa can stay healthy.
