Manny Delcarmen threw just eight innings for the Rockies after they acquired him from the Red Sox on August 31 and now Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that they plan to non-tender the arbitration-eligible reliever, making him a free agent.
Delcarmen didn’t pitch well during that brief stint in Colorado, but obviously eight innings is hardly a sample size worth focusing on and the Rockies did give up a decent pitching prospect to get him in 2009 sixth-round pick Chris Balcom-Miller.
Renck reports that the Rockies tried to work out a deal with Delcarmen that would have kept him in Colorado at a lower salary than what he’d likely get via arbitration, but had “no luck” doing so. Instead they traded last year’s sixth-round pick for eight innings of poor relief and Delcarmen will likely try to resurrect his career elsewhere on a one-year contract.
