Rockies Acquire Armando Galarraga

Here's your rundown of Monday's minor moves from around the league…

  • The Rockies have traded minor league right-hander Parker Frazier to the Reds in exchange for Armando Galarraga, the team announced on Twitter. Frazier was the team's eighth-round pick in 2007 and has a career 4.75 ERA with 5.8 K/9 and 2.5 BB/9 in 699 minor league innings. The 24-year-old reached Triple-A this season for the first time. Frazier entered the season as the team's No. 30 prospect, according to Baseball America. Galarraga famously threw a near-perfect game with the Tigers in 2010. He has a 4.78 ERA in 542 career Major League innings, though he's been significantly better in Triple-A this season, pitching to a 2.98 ERA with 6.6 K/9 and 3.6 BB/9. The move is clearly a depth signing, as the Rockies announced that Galarraga will report to Triple-A Colorado Springs.
  • Five players are currently in DFA limbo: Henry Rodriguez of the Cubs, Jair Jurrjens of the Orioles, J.C. Gutierrez of the Royals, Pedro Ciriaco of the Padres and Chris Heston of the Giants.
