Troy E. Renck of the Denver Post reports that the Rockies have signed lefty Glendon Rusch to a minor league deal. Rusch missed all of the 2007 season due to a blood clot in his lung. He struggled with his control in 19.2 innings with the Padres this year.
Rusch joins some familiar names in the Sky Sox (Triple A) rotation: John Koronka, Josh Towers, Valerio De Los Santos, and Franklin Morales. It looks like Cedrick Bowers has replaced Victor Zambrano in that rotation.
Renck also wonders whether the Rockies and Blue Jays could be a match given Colorado’s outfield depth.
