Rockies Designate Logan Kensing For Assignment

The Rockies announced (via Twitter) that they have selected the contract of outfielder Corey Dickerson and designated right-hander Logan Kensing for assignment.

The 30-year-old Kensing pitched just two-thirds of an inning for the Rockies this season — his first big league action since 2009. The former second-round pick has a 5.79 ERA in 161 2/3 career innings with 8.0 K/9 and 5.0 BB/9. He's fared significantly better in Triple-A, though, where he owns a career 3.67 ERA with 9.2 K/9 and 3.9 BB/9.

Kensing found himself out of affiliated ball entirely following the 2009 season, but worked his way back to the Majors this season following a brief stop in the independent Atlantic League along the way.

Dickerson, 24, is hitting .386/.429/.646 with nine homers, 19 doubles and an incredible 13 triples through 303 plate appearances at Triple-A this season. He's played left field almost exclusively, though he has made five appearances in right field as well. Prior to the season, Baseball America ranked Dickerson as Colorado's No. 13 prospect, noting that he's become a much more complete hitter in recent years but calling his defense in left a "work in progress."
