The Kyle Kendrick era is almost over for the Colorado Rockies

  Well, that was a terrible experiment. The Colorado Rockies signed Kyle Kendrick, a starting pitcher who had been non-tendered by the Philadelphia Phillies, to a one-year contract worth $5.5 million.

Kendrick’s Career Turnaround Stems from Success vs. Lefties, More Strikes
