The Rockies announced that they have designated right-handers Jesus Tinoco and Ashton Goudeau for assignment. They selected the contracts of infielder-outfilder Bret Boswell, left-hander Lucas Gilbreath and Helcris Olivarez, and infielder Colton Welker in corresponding moves.
The 25-year-old Tinoco was part of the return the Rockies received from the Blue Jays for shortstop Troy Tulowitzki in 2015. Tinoco debuted in the majors in 2019 and has since pitched to a respectable 4.03 ERA, though that has come with a woeful 7.19 FIP and 6.85 K/9 against 5.84 BB/9 over 44 2/3 innings.
Of the players the Rockies selected, Welker (No. 7) and Olivarez (No. 15) rank among their top prospects at MLB.com.
It’s funny that the Rockies traded him to the marlins then traded him back to the Rockies lol. Although, Tinoco did well with the marlins and didn’t allow a hit with only 3 walks through 5 innings with them. He could’ve pitched well outside of Colts.
I think he still had control issues with the marlins which is why they dfa’d him.
Colts should have kept him, peripherals be damned. They certainly don’t have a better pitcher on their roster than Tinoco.
Take a chance Baltimore Orioles. Sign the man.
Take a chance Baltimore Orioles. Sign the man, I think he would be great out of the bullpen.
I think cutting Tinoco could be a mistake.
I wonder if Welker will be the heir at 3B this season. He had a great spring two years ago. Then he got injured when he was sent down.
