The Colorado Rockies recently signed Chris Volstad and Miguel Batista, but they continue to “aggressively pursue” free agents Carl Pavano and Derek Lowe, according to Troy Renck of The Denver Post. Even with Volstad in the fold, the Rockies are aggressively pursuing free agents Carl Pa- vano, a right-hander they have tried to acquire numerous times over the last few seasons, and Derek Lowe, a sinkerballer who has pitched well at Coors Field. Renck adds that the Rockies would like to finalize a deal with another veteran starter this week. Colorado’s starting pitching was among the worst in the majors last season. Beyond their offseason acquisitions, also including veteran Jeff Francis, the Rockies will count on several in-house arms such as Jorge De La Rosa, Jhoulys Chacin and Juan Nicasio. The Rockies also made runs at Kevin Correia (Minnesota Twins), Kyle McClellan (Texas Rangers) and Aaron Cook (Philadelphia Phillies) before they signed elsewhere this winter.

Are The Mets Still In The Game For Pavano?

Last week, the Daily News reported that the Mets have talked to Carl Pavano’s agent and are genuinely interested in bringing the former Yankee to Flushing.

Rockies, Herrera agree to $900,000 deal for 2013

Infielder Jonathan Herrera and the Colorado Rockies agreed to a one-year, $900,000 contract on Wednesday, avoiding arbitration. Herrera hit .262 with nine doubles, three homers, 12 RBIs and 29 runs in 86 games last season, when he was dogged by injuries. He missed a total of 39 games while on the DL, first with a strained right hamstring and then a left wrist infection. The 28...

Rockies Continue The Quest For Mediocrity

Last season, the Rockies had what was arguably the worst season in their 20 as a franchise. There were plenty of culprits — a porous defense and Troy Tulowitzki getting hurt yet again were two large factors. But the chief culprit for Colorado’s 98-loss season was the worst starting rotation in franchise history. In response to this, the Rockies have gone out and signed Jeff...

Rockies Have Offered Yorvit Torreabla a Minor League Deal

Yorvit Torrealba has been a productive Major League back-up over the last few seasons.  He brought some negative press to himself when he got into an altercation during winter ball a season ago.  However, his veteran understanding of how to call a game has drawn the Colorado Rockies to him.  They have reportedly offered Torrealba a minor league deal. According to Thomas Harding...

Report: Rockies sign P Volstad to minor-league deal

The Colorado Rockies have signed pitcher Chris Volstad to a minor-league deal that will enable him to earn $1.5 million if he makes the team, the Denver Post reported.

The Mets have had two things on their agenda this offseason. One of them is acquiring one more rotation arm on a one-year contract. Right now, the Mets starting rotation looks something like this: Johan Santana, Jonathon Niese, Matt Harvey, and Dillon Gee.
