Street's injury has Rockies interested in Beimel

Mar 18, 2010, 12:43 PM EDT

Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that the Rockies have “expressed interest” in free agent reliever Joe Beimel following yesterday’s news that closer Huston Street will likely begin the season on the disabled list.
Last month the Mets were said to be making a run at Beimel, but he remains unsigned deep into spring training much like last year, when the left-hander agreed to a $2 million deal with the Nationals in mid-March.
Franklin Morales is first in line to replace Street at closer, which would potentially open up another spot in the setup corps for a southpaw like Beimel. Right now the Rockies have scrap-heap veterans Jimmy Gobble and Randy Flores competing for a possible left-handed specialist role created by Morales moving to the ninth inning.

    This guy looks like Gollum. Or maybe Willem Dafoe’s retarded brother.

    Looks like he’s been using his Keith Richard’s Starter Kit. Now that MLB is done with Ron Washington, they’ll test this guy next. He looks like he died two years ago.
