Manuel Corpas is staying with Colorado, as Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports that the reliever has re-signed with the Rockies on a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to spring training.

Corpas has struggled to find success after thriving as a rookie closer in 2007, posting a combined 4.81 ERA in 264 innings since then while totaling just 15 saves. Last season he worked middle relief for the Rockies at age 30, throwing 42 innings with a 4.54 ERA and 30/16 K/BB ratio.

According to Harding the contract includes an opt-out clause if Corpas doesn’t make the Opening Day roster out of spring training.
