The Rockies have signed 33-year old righty starting pitcher Jon Garland to a 1-year deal worth $500,000 bucks with another possible $2 million bucks that he can earn in incentives. He will be a part of the Rockies’ starting rotation when the 2013 season opens. He pitched in 4 games (all starts) for the Mariners in spring training and he was 1-0 with a 2.25 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP. He last pitched in the majors back in 2011 with the Dodgers. Garland has now pitched in 353 games (330 starts) in his first 12 years in the majors and he is 132-119 with 1 save, a 4.32 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP. If Garland is healthy, he will give the Rockies’ starting rotation a nice boost.
