The Rockies have signed 42-year old righty reliever/starter Miguel Batista to a minor league deal. Batista pitched in 8 games (7 starts) earlier this year in AAA-ball for the Blue Jays and he was 1-2 with a 8.36 ERA and a 2.04 WHIP. Batista last pitched in the majors in 2012 with the Mets and Braves. He has pitched in 658 games (248 starts) in his first 18 years in the majors and he is 102-115 with 41 saves, a 4.48 ERA and a 1.49 WHIP. Batista will start his time in AAA-ball for the Rockies. If he has anything left in the gas tank, Batista could get a shot later this year for the Rockies.
