The Colorado Rockies have designated 28-year old righty reliever/starter David Hale for assignment. Hale pitched in 2 games (0 starts) for the Rockies this year and he was 0-0 with a 13.50 ERA and a 3.00 WHIP. Hale pitched in 19 games (12 starts) in his two years with the Rockies and he is 5-5 with a 6.27 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP. Hale has now pitched in 66 games (20 starts) in his first four years in the majors and he is 10-10 with a 4.48 ERA and a 1.46 WHIP. Well, it’s pretty clear that Hale can’t handle pitching in Colorado, but I bet some team will take a chance on turning him around.
UPDATE: (4/25/2016) – The Rockies have lost David Hale on waivers to the Baltimore Orioles
