Colorado Rockies Reach Agreement With Felipe Paulino

The Colorado Rockies have reached an agreement with RHP Felipe Paulino, a one year contract worth $790,000. Because the two parties have settled on a contract offer, they will be able to avoid a salary arbitration hearing.

Paulino was acquired from the Houston Astros at the end of the 2010 season in exchange for SS/2B Clint Barmes. He is projected to enter Spring Training as a candidate for the fifth starter spot and will also receive consideration for a place in the bullpen. Last season, Paulino filled both roles with the Astros, with a 5.11 ERA in 91.2 innings pitched. He had a respectable 4.40 ERA as a starter in 2010.

Since Paulino is out of options, he cannot be sent down to the minor leagues and will have to break camp on the Rockies' major league roster if the club wishes to maintain team control over his rights.
