Rockies Unlikely To Sign Beimel Or Wellemeyer

The Rockies are not likely to re-sign Joe Beimel or add Todd Wellemeyer. Beimel tells Troy Renck of the Denver Post that he doesn't expect to re-sign with the Rockies, despite a successful stint with the team last year. The lefty, who didn't sign until March 18th last spring, says he's happy to wait for the right offer.

Rockies GM Dan O'Dowd tells ESPN.com's Jerry Crasnick that the club has 'no interest' in Todd Wellemeyer (Twitter link). Wellemeyer listed the Rockies as a possible fit last week, but the 31-year-old right-hander will have to look elsewhere for a job. The Giants, Mets, Phillies and D'Backs have all been linked to Wellemeyer.
The Rockies have plenty of starting pitching already. Ubaldo Jimenez, Aaron Cook, Jorge de la Rosa, Jason Hammel and Jeff Francis should figure prominently in a rotation that could also include Franklin Morales and Tim Redding.
