Rockies Sign Sean White

The Rockies have signed Sean White to a minor league contract with an invitation to Spring Training, tweets Troy Renck of The Denver Post. He was outrighted by the Mariners earlier this offseason and became a free agent soon thereafter.

The 29-year-old right-handed reliever posted a 5.24 ERA with just 3.9 K/9 in 34 1/3 innings for Seattle in 2010. White made up for the low strikeout rate with an equally low walk rate (2.9 BB/9) and a decent ground ball rate (44.6%). His big league career consists of 134 innings, all with the Mariners, and a 4.16 ERA with 4.0 K/9, 3.4 BB/9, and 48.4% ground balls. 

The Rockies can control White for at least three more years as an arbitration-eligible player if they choose.

Ew, why? I don’t understand why a guy like this ever made it to the big leagues, his MiLB numbers are awful too.

Sweet! They just signed the greatest snowboarder in history!

Edit: Epic fail, should of know the first post would of been something like mine. I’m a big glass of fail juice.

Damnit, you took my comment. So instead, I’ll belittle you by point out that the guy you are referring to goes by SHAUN White, and he also surfs.

In my house, we call this “joke murdering.”
