Morillo On Waivers
Right-handed pitcher Juan Morillo’s life in limbo led to him being placed on waivers on Thursday.
By Monday the Rockies will know whether they can keep Morillo in their farm system.
Morillo was designated for assignment a week ago, opening a roster spot for right-hander, a late spring addition from Tampa Bay. That gave the Rockies 10 days to deal with Morillo’s contract.
In the first week Morillo was on the market the Rockies had brief conversations with a couple teams, but no firm offer was made. Now Morillo is available to any team in baseball through Monday afternoon. If he is claimed the Rockies will receive $20,000.
If Morillo goes unclaimed the Rockies plan to assign him to Triple-A Colorado Springs.
