The Rockies have acquired 38-year old lefty reliever Hisanori Takahashi from the Cubs for a player to be named later. He pitched in 3 games (0 starts) earlier this year for the Cubs and he was 0-0 with a 6.00 ERA and a 1.67 WHIP. He also pitched in 20 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball for the Cubs this year and he was 1-0 with a 1.98 ERA and a 0.84 WHIP. Takahashi has now pitched in 168 games (12 starts) in his first four years in the majors and he is 14-12 with 10 saves, a 3.99 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP. I don’t think he will be in AAA-ball long for the Rockies if he looks good.
