The Colorado Rockies sign Giancarlo Alvarado

The Rockies have signed 35-year old righty starter/reliever Giancarlo Alvarado to a minor league deal.  He pitched in 8 games (all starts) in Japan last year and he was 1-6 with a 3.92 ERA and a 1.64 WHIP.  He has now pitched in 431 games (187 starts) in his first 17 years in the minors and he is 84-77 with 4 saves, a 3.70 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP.  It never hurts to give a guy like this a chance, but I doubt that he will help the Rockies at any point in 2013.
