Minor Moves: Jeff Manship, Manny Corpas

Today's minor moves..

  • The Rockies placed right-hander Jeff Manship on waivers, but he's expected to clear and be outrighted to Triple-A, according to Troy Renck of the Denver Post (via Twitter).  Manship made four starts and three relief appearances for the Rockies this season but spent the bulk of the year in Triple-A.  He posted a 4.85 ERA with 6.1 K/9 and 2.8 BB/9 in 24 games for the Rockies' Triple-A affiliate.
  • The Rockies have outrighted reliever Manny Corpas off of the 40-man roster, according to Troy Renck of the Denver Post (Twitter link).  Renck could see Corpas re-signing with Colorado later this winter and notes that there will be multiple Colorado relievers fighting to keep their jobs this offseason (Sulia link).  The soon-to-be 31-year-old earned $800K last season and pitched to a 4.54 ERA with 6.5 K/9 and 3.5 BB/9.  Tim Dierkes predicted earlier this month that Corpas would be deemed expendable by the team.  To read up on Corpas and the rest of the Rockies' arbitration eligible players, you can check out Tim's rundown here.
