More from Rox Pile

Tony Watson

Tony Watson, 36 next May, has spent the last three seasons in the Giants bullpen and been in bullpen’s in general since 2011. Since 2012 (with the obvious exception of the shortened 2020 season), the left-hander has appeared in at least 60 games and each season had an ERA below 4 until 2019.

In 2020, he pitched in 21 games with an ERA of 2.50 (174 ERA+) with a WHIP of 0.889 and a 5:1 strikeout-to-walk ratio.

Justin Wilson

Justin Wilson, the recently-turned 33-year-old left-hander, appeared in at least 45 games from 2012 through 2019, and in the past four seasons, he has an average ERA of 3.26. He struck out more than 10 batters per nine innings in each of those four seasons but his walk rate was a bit of a problem as he was walking more than five per nine innings.

However, in each of the last two seasons, he has brought it down as he averaged 4.1 walks per nine innings in 2020 while pitching in his second season with the Mets. He pitched to a 3.66 ERA (3.06 FIP) in 2020 in 23 games.

There’s plenty of options for the Rockies on the free-agent market (and even some more we didn’t list) as well as the trade market so we will see if the Rockies will target any of these relievers in the ensuing months.
