Zack Segovia Signs With Detroit Tigers, Not Colorado Rockies

UPDATE - Kevin Goldstein notes that he had the initial announcement incorrect. Zack Segovia signed with the Detroit Tigers:

The Colorado Rockies have agreed to a minor league contract with pitcher Zack Segovia, according to Kevin Goldstein of Baseball Prospectus. Goldstein notes that he was once a prospect in the Philadelphia Phillies system after being a second-round pick in 2002.

Segovia, 28, spent last season pitching in the Milwaukee Brewers organization. Pitching in relief for Triple-A Nashville, he posted a 3.98 ERA in 63 innings with 50 strikeouts and 38 walks. He was once considered a pretty good prospect after the 2006 season, during which he posted a 2.82 ERA in 156 innings while reaching Double-A as a 23-year-old.

Since then, Segovia has bounced around with a few different organizations. He's made two separate stints in the majors, pitching five innings for the Philadelphia Phillies in 2007 and ten innings for the Washington Nationals in 2009. He didn't pitch well, though, posting a combined 8.22 ERA in his short MLB career.
