The Colorado Rockies have signed 34-year old righty swinging outfielder Ryan Raburn to a minor league deal. Raburn played in 82 games for the Indians last year and he was 52 of 173 (.301 avg, .936 OPS) with 22 runs scored, 8 homers and 29 RBIs. Raburn has now played in 809 games in his first 10 years in the majors and he is 560 of 2,184 (.256 avg, .757 OPS) with 303 runs scored, 82 homers, 322 RBIs and 16 stolen bases. This was a great pickup for the Rockies as Raburn is a lefty pitcher masher, and the Rockies’ three starting outfielders swinging lefty. I don’t think he will platoon with anyone, but he will be a solid bat off the bench.
