Veteran reliever Josh Roenicke has signed a minor-league deal with the Rockies, according to Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish.

Roenicke spent most of this season pitching at Triple-A for the Nationals, but was let go after posting a 5.49 ERA in 79 innings. However, most of that work came as a starter after being a full-time reliever for his entire career, so the poor performance should probably be taken with a grain of salt.

Roenicke has always thrown hard, but he’s never generated enough strikeouts to balance out his poor control. He’s got a lifetime 4.17 ERA in 220 innings as a major leaguer, but his most success came with the Rockies and they’ll give him another shot to work his way back into a middle relief role.

    He should be a perfect fit for the worst bullpen in the league…
