The Rockies have designated 33-year old righty starting pitcher Jon Garland for assignment. Garland pitched in 12 games (all starts) for the Rockies this year and he was 4-6 with a 5.82 ERA and a 1.59 WHIP. Garland got hit hard this year as he gave up 85 hits (9 homers) while walking 23 batters and whiffing 32 of them in 68 innings pitched for the Rockies. Garland has now pitched in 365 games (342 starts) in his first 13 years in the majors and he is 136-125 with 1 save, a 4.37 ERA and a 1.39 WHIP. This isn’t much of a loss moving forward for the Rockies.
UPDATE: (6/10/2013) – The Rockies have released Jon Garland.
