Rockies Designate Felipe Paulino For Assignment

The Rockies have designated right-hander Felipe Paulino for assignment, reports Troy Renck of the Denver PostGreg Reynolds was scratched from his Triple-A start tonight, so he is the likely corresponding call-up.

We heard earlier this week that the Rockies were looking for trade partners for Paulino and Franklin Morales, since both pitchers were out of options and Colorado was worried that either would be claimed on waivers.  The Rockies worked out a deal with the Red Sox for Morales, but apparently nothing could be found for Paulino.

In 14 2/3 innings of relief work for the Rockies this year, Paulino has a 7.36 ERA and an ungainly 14.1 H/9 rate.  Paulino has a 5.93 ERA in 65 career games (34 of them starts) but his 95-mph fastball makes him an intriguing low-cost pickup for a team that thinks it can get him on track.
