The Rockies have designated 26-year old righty reliever Edgmer Escalona for assignment. He pitched in 37 games (0 starts) for the Rockies this year and he was 1-4 with a 5.67 ERA and a 1.44 WHIP. Escalona pitched in 78 games (0 starts) in his four years with the Rockies and he was 1-5 with a 4.50 ERA and a 1.28 WHIP. This won’t be much of a loss if a team claims Escalona off waivers from the Rockies.
UPDATE: (8/30/2013) – The Rockies have outrighted Edgmer Escalona to AAA-ball.
