Rockies Designate Randy Flores For Assignment

The Rockies designated left-hander Randy Flores for assignment to make room for Jonathan Herrera, according to Troy Renck of the Denver Post. The Rockies’ bullpen is now thin, so the club could call on left-handed reliever Franklin Morales

Now that Herrera is up again, the club could put Clint Barmes on waivers to determine interest. Renck reports that the Cardinals and Braves are among the teams waiting for the Rockies to put Barmes on waivers.

Flores, meanwhile, should draw interest. 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. He earns a total of $650K this year and hits free agency after the season.

    Barmes would be a nice depth move for the braves though it seems like the cards will put a waiver claim to have some insurance if Pedro Feliz don’t produce. I still believe FW is one minor move to add a utility type MI guy that would be a upgrade over D Hernandez/Hicks on the current bench.

    With Lee on the club, I don’t see the Braves making a move for Barmes. (Unless one of the other IFs goes down with an injury.) Prado’s back, D. Hernandez is serviceable, Hicks is in Gwinnett, and both Freeman and Glaus should join the club in September.
