Will there be more additions to the Colorado Rockies 60-man roster released on Sunday?
With just 52 names on the 60-man roster, the Rockies were leaving some space to add players as we edged closer to Opening Day.
While many of us hypothesized that the Rockies would continue to add to the roster, we didn’t know who or when. On Monday, we learned two more names.
"“We have already told two gentlemen that they will join us in Albuquerque,” Bridich said “Those two guys are Wes Parsons and Tommy Doyle, and our plan is to, at this point right now, is to add a handful more. The plan is to have more guys join us in Albuquerque and we’re going to finalize those decisions soon.”"
Parsons, a 27-year-old right-handed reliever, pitched in 32 games for the Rockies last season (totaling a 5.45 ERA) after being picked up from the Atlanta Braves on waivers in August. He elected free agency in December, but was quickly signed by the Rockies to a minor league deal and assigned to Albuquerque.
Parsons made two spring appearances, throwing 3.2 frames and allowing five hits and four runs.
Doyle was taken 70th overall by the Rockies in the 2017 MLB draft. The 24-year-old right-handed reliever had a 3.25 ERA and 19 saves in 23 save opportunities for Class A Lancaster last season. He picked up 18 saves the year before that in Class A Asheville.
He made four spring appearances for the Rockies, allowing just one hit and one run in four innings of work. He struck out three of the 15 batters he faced.
