Rockies Interested In Brandon Webb, Jesse Crain

As the free agent pitching market continues to dwindle, the Colorado Rockies will need to start thinking creatively on how to fill in holes on the roster.One way would be to bring in former Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Brandon Webb. According to the Denver Post’s Troy Renck, the Rockies will look at Webb as an alternative now that Jorge De La Rosa is as good as gone and Jon Garland re-signed with the Dodgers.

Webb had one of the best sinkers in the majors before shoulder injuries derailed his career over the last two seasons. He pitched the 2009 season opener against the Colorado Rockies and has not seen a major league field since then.

If fully healthy with his sinker working, Webb would be a good match for Coors Field. Whichever team signs him will likely need to offer him a heavily-laden incentive contract.

Renck reports that the Rockies are also interested in former Twins reliever Jesse Crain. Crain is a Colorado native who has great stuff as late-innings guy. He made $10 million in arbitration for his 2010 salary.
