The Colorado Rockies have agreed to a major league deal with left handed pitcher Jeff Francis according to Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post. Saunder adds that Francis will be the Rockies' starter tomorrow against the Angels.
Earlier this week, we learned that both parties were close to an agreement after Francis was released by the Reds. Francis, 31, went 6-16 with a 4.82 ERA, 0.9 HR/9, 1.9 BB/9 and 4.5 SO/9 in 183.0 innings last season with the Royals.
This season, he went 3-6 with a 3.72 ERA, 0.7 HR/9, 2.1 BB/9 and 7.6 SO/9 in 77.1 innings with the Reds' Triple-A team.
