Rockies Designate Pitcher For Assignment

The Colorado Rockies have designated Julian Fernandez for assignment. 

Fernandez did not make an appearance for the Rockies this season. Instead, he has spent the entirety of this year with Triple-A Albuquerque. It's fair to say he has struggled immensely, as he has a 0-2 record and disastrous 9.47 ERA. Thus, perhaps him being removed from the 40-man roster could have been predicted.

The Rockies will now have until the end of the week to either trade or place Fernandez on waivers. Teams in need of some pitching depth could take a chance on him. In six career games with the Rockies, he has a 0-0 record and 10.80 ERA.
