Randy Flores Clears Waivers

Rockies left-hander Randy Flores cleared waivers, according to Troy Renck of the Denver Post (on Twitter). The Rockies designated the reliever for assignment Friday, so they still have the rest of this week to work out a trade. If teams aren't interested in trading for Flores, the Rockies will likely release him.

Flores makes $650K this year before hitting free agency this offseason. Just $150K remains on his salary, so you won’t find cheaper options out there. The 35-year-old has a 2.96 ERA with 5.9 K/9 and 4.3 BB/9 in 27.1 innings for the Rockies.

Come on Twins go pick him up. He’s a lefty and he has a pulse.

They really wanted to take an extended look at a young lefty they have named Matt Reynolds. Flores was the odd man out, so they figured they would give him a chance to latch on with a contender. And there’s no reason they couldn’t bring him back next year regardless of where he ends up this year.
