Manny Corpas Placed On Waivers

According to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe, Rockies reliever Manny Corpas has been placed on waivers.  Bear in mind that it’s likely just a procedural move and does not mean Corpas is going to be traded.

Corpas struggled in April and May and lost the closer job.  The 25 year-old has a 2.50 ERA and 8.67 K/BB since the beginning of June though.  He’s signed cheaply through 2011 with club options on ’12 and ’13, so he would not clear waivers.

Corpas probably wouldn’t make it far through the NL before a team claims him.  Even the Reds, fourth in line, could take him with an eye on the future.  Most likely the Rockies will pull him back and not make a deal.
