With Spring Training creeping closer teams are actively signing players to minor league deals that will bolster their overall team depth. The Colorado Rockies came to an agreement on Wednesday with outfielder Greg Golson and first basemen Ryan Garko.

bats he has hit four home runs with 22 RBI and owns a .344 batting average and
a .445 on-base percentage. He is slugging .489. He has turned it up a notch in June,

Ryan Garko sat at home this past spring and thought his career was over. Instead, after working out the entire off-season and proclaiming to have the same bat speed he had with the
Cleveland Indians, he decided to play with the Long Island Ducks. After tearing up the Atlantic League, the Rays signed the MLB-veteran to a minor league deal and he has a second chance at a big-league dream.
