    True. He apparently could still field offers over the past month, but I guess no other team offered anything better.

    Probably lower

    All his ERA estimators for last season had him giving up between 4.5 and 5 runs.

    What do the Rockies see in Volstad?

    Ignoring his ERA and wins and losses, Volstad is a sinkerball pitcher with low strikeout rates, a 2012 BABIP of .315 and pitching in Coors Field, which is a pitcher-hostile ballpark.

    He's been a 1-2 win pitcher for 3 of his 5 seasons in the majors. They can sign him to a minor league contract.

    He's probably not a great fit for Coors field.
    Ground balls are good.
    The lack of strikeouts isn't.

    It's not like the Rockies are brimming with starting pitching options.

    Phillies ink Delmon Young to a one-year, incentive-laden deal for $750K with a max payout of around $3.5M if all incentives are reached. He's likely to play RF in a platoon with Domonic Brown.

    Seems like a good deal for the Phillies. His defense is a question mark though.

    Farsnworth coming back could make as much as three mill if he reaches all incentives.
