Found November 28, 2012 on MLB Injury News:
The Colorado Rockies are “working on multiple fronts as they attempt to bolster” their starting rotation, and the team is interested in numerous free agent pitchers, including right-hander Kevin Correia and left-hand Jeff Francis, reports Troy Renck of The Denver Post. While a trade remains possible, Colorado has expressed interest in numerous free agents, including right-hander Kevin Correia and left-hander Jeff Francis, according to sources. The Rockies are seeking a pitcher to fill the role it cast right-hander Jeremy Guthrie, who was traded to the Kansas City Royals last summer: “a reliable arm, capable of giving the team a chance to win every five days,” according to Renck. While Guthrie ultimately was unable to fill that role, prompting his trade, Renck believes Correia fits the profile. The 32-year-old maintained an ERA of 4.21 over 32 appearances, including 28 starts, last season for the Pittsburgh Pirates and owns a career ERA of 4.54 over 10 seasons in the majors. Francis rejoined the Rockies, the team that made him a first-round pick in the 2002 MLB Draft, last season. Over 24 starts the lefty maintained an ERA of 5.58. The 31-year-old has posted an ERA of 4.86 over eight seasons at the major league level.
