Colorado Rockies Place Left-Handed Pitcher On Waivers

The Colorado Rockies made some significant changes to their roster over the weekend.

On Saturday, the team designated left-handed pitcher Ty Blach for assignment due to his lackluster performance in six relief appearances this season.

Blach had initially made the Rockies' opening roster but struggled to perform, allowing 10 earned runs and only striking out four batters in the 11 innings he played as a long reliever.

As a result of this decision, Blach was removed from the team's 40-man roster but is expected to remain with the Rockies as pitching depth within the organization, unless another team claims him off waivers.

In a corresponding move, outfielder Randal Grichuk was activated from the 10-day injured list for his season debut. Grichuk's return provided a boost to the Rockies' outfield depth, and the team opted to keep top prospect Brenton Doyle with the team, despite Grichuk's return.

Over his six-year career, the 32-year-old has compiled a 5.19 ERA, 1.46 WHIP, with 211 strikeouts across 381.2 innings and 122 appearances.

We'll wait and see if any team puts a claim in for him.

The Rockies will continue to rely on their depth to navigate the long MLB season, with Blach available as an option if needed. Photo Credit: Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports
