Rockies Acquire Jason Grilli, Jorge de la Rosa

The Rockies and Tigers made a swap today.  The Rockies get 31 year-old pitcher Jason Grilli, while the Tigers receive 22 year-old pitcher Zach Simons.

Grilli has served as a mop-up man for the Tigers the past two years, eating bullpen innings at a mediocre ERA.  The Rox may have been drawn to his typically decent groundball rates.

Simons appears to be a long shot to reach the bigs; he wasn't among the Rockies' top 30 prospects.

The Rox also completed their long-rumored deal for lefty Jorge de la Rosa.  He'll jump right into the rotation.  The 27 year-old is an interesting arm when healthy.
