#Rockies acquire RHP Zach Putnam from Cleveland in exchange for RHP Kevin Slowey and cash considerations.— Colorado Rockies (@Rockies) January 20, 2012
Putnam comes to Colorado with only 7 and 1/3 innings of MLB duty under his belt. He spent the majority of the 2011 MLB season in with the Indians' Triple-A affiliate, where he pitched 69 innings of 3.65 ERA, 3.40 FIP ball. Putnam's birthday is in September, so he will play the 2012 season as a 24-year-old.
