The Rockies announced that they have designated left-hander James Pazos for assignment.
Pazos, previously with the Yankees, Mariners and Phillies, joined the Rockies in a trade with Philadelphia early in the 2019 season. He has since given the Rockies just 15 2/3 innings of 6.89 ERA pitching with 6.32 K/9 and 5.17 BB/9.
At his peak, Pazos was a threat out of the Mariners’ bullpen from 2017-18. He amassed at least 50 innings in each of those seasons, combining for 103 2/3 frames, and logged a 3.39 ERA with 9.55 K/9 against 3.39 BB/9. Pazos averaged nearly 96 mph on his fastball in the first of those two seasons, but the 29-year-old has seen his velocity fall to the lower 90s since then.
Back to Seattle?

All I can hear in my head is Shelfy yelling PAPA PAZ at the top of his lungs.
it all went down hill when he shaved his mustache in the 2018-19 offseason
Minor league deal to Mets
Dude looks like Pablo Escobar.
The Rockies franchise has been full of forgettable short-term relievers. The biggest problem is that a lot of them are on the roster right now. Add this guy to the pile. He did nothing memorable. I wish him good luck in his future endeavors. Hopefully we can add Joe Harvey, Phillip Diehl, Tyler Kinley, and several others to the pile soon.
Why is a team DFAing a basically unknown reliever that didn’t make a 16 team playoff newsworthy? I’m all about rumors, but file this one under “who gives AF?”
I care. He’s an intriguing buy-low candidate. The others commenting seem to care, too.
