The Cubs claimed Zach Putnam off of waivers from the Rockies, Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports (Twitter link). The Rockies also lost Josh Roenicke, Thomas Fields and Guillermo Moscoso via waiver claims this afternoon.
Putnam appeared in two games for the Rockies this past season. The 25-year-old spent most of the season at Triple-A, where he posted a 4.15 ERA with 7.3 K/9 and 4.0 BB/9 in 60 2/3 innings.
Oppa Putnam Style!
(couldn’t resist 🙂
Cubs keep piling up on pitching. There’s gotta be some lightening in some of those bottles. Go Cubs!
So all these guys the Rockies traded for in the past year are now going to other teams? I will be pretty disappointed if they don’t make any major moves to improve after all the crap they fed the fanbase last year about improving the clubhouse with veteran position players and then trading for all this young pitching to develop only to trade or let most of it go like this..
