Rockies close to minor league deal with Beimel

Mar 22, 2010, 10:39 PM EDT

The Rockies are close to an agreement to bring back Joe Beimel on a minor league contract, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com. The new deal should be confirmed by the morning, according to the report.

Beimel, who turns 33 in April, posted a 4.02 ERA in 26 relief appearances down the stretch for the Rockies last season.

Beimel ruled out a return to Colorado as recently as last month, however Huston Street’s injury has changed the complexion of the Rockies’ bullpen. Franklin Morales, the team’s primary left-hander, is the favorite for the ninth-inning gig in Street’s absence, leaving the likes of Randy Flores and Jimmy Gobble as internal candidates to be a left-handed specialist. It’s not known how long Beimel will need to be ready for the start of the season, but he should immediately jump either once he’s ready.

    Can’t believe he didn’t get a 1-year $1mil offer from the Yankees, Red Sox, Twins, Angels, Cards or Phillies. Makes no sense. I don’t get it.
