The Colorado Rockies signed relief pitcher Jeff Manship.

The Colorado Rockies have signed right-handed pitcher Jeff Manship, after the reliever spent parts of four seasons with the Minnesota Twins. The 27-year old pitcher will likely receive just a spring training invite for the Rockies.

Manship appeared in 12 games for the Twins in 2012, putting up a 7.89 ERA in 21.2 innings and striking out 12. Manship spent the first two seasons of his career as a spot starter and was relatively more successful, putting up ERAs of 5.68 and 5.28 in 2009 and 2010, respectively.

A 14th-round pick int he 2006 June Draft, Manship appeared in 22 games with the Triple-A Rochester Red Wings and had a 2.91 ERA while striking out 52 batters, while putting up a 6-3 record while starting 11 games.

The Rockies finished last in the National League West in 2012 with a 64-98 record, hiring new manager Walt Weiss after Jim Tracy's departure at the conclusion of the season.
