The Rockies have acquired 31-year old righty starting pitcher Armando Galarraga from the Cincinnati Reds for 24-year old righty starter/reliever Parker Frazier. Galarraga pitched in 16 games (all starts) for the Reds in AAA-ball this year and he was 6-6 with a 2.98 ERA and a 1.39 WHIP. Galarraga last pitched in the majors in 2012 with the Houston Astros. He has pitched in 100 games (91 starts) in his first six years in the majors and he is 26-34 with a 4.78 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP. Frazier pitched in 25 games (4 starts) in AA+AAA-ball for the Rockies this year and he was 1-2 with a 4.93 ERA and a 1.72 WHIP. Frazier pitched in 147 games (120 starts) in his seven years in the minors for the Rockies and he was 38-49 with a 4.75 ERA and a 1.46 WHIP. Frazier came into this season as the Rockies’ #30 prospect according to Baseball America. This was a good move for the Rockies as Galarraga might be able to help them in the rotation in the second half of the 2013 season.
