Rockies Designate Brad Eldred For Assignment

The Rockies designated Brad Eldred for assignment to make room for Troy Tulowitzki, according to Steve Foster of Inside the Rockies. Five weeks after breaking his wrist, Tulowitzki returns to the Rockies lineup, so Eldred no longer has a place on the major league roster.

The 30-year-old first baseman batted just 27 times with Colorado, hitting one homer and posting a .750 OPS. Eldred has 196 minor league home runs and posted a .267/.323/.575 line at Triple A this year before getting the call to the majors.

    Minor league numbers indicate the guy can hit a little bit. Maybe give him more than 282 PA over parts of 3 seasons and we’d find out if he can do it in the big leagues.

      Dude, he’s a AAAA player that is a strikeout machine. I don’t think lack of playing time is his problem.

    i watched this guy when he was in AA altoona. Man had some power, but hes never really gotten a chance in the majors…..

    • its probably because he can’t hit for average. I saw his numbers, impressive HR total but with no average to back it up. He might take over for a little bit once Helton calls it quits.

    I though “Big Country” was gonna be a fixture @ 1B for the Bucs for a while after his 2005 season. Of course, I thought the same thing about Chris Duffy in CF :)
