Rockies sign Logan Kensing to minor-league contract

Matt Kartozian-US PRESSWIRE

The Colorado Rockies added another minor-league arm, former Marlins reliever Logan Kensing.

Along with right-hander Mike McClendon, the Colorado Rockies have signed veteran right-hander Logan Kensing to a minor-league contract with an invitation to spring training, according to the team's official website.

The 30-year-old Kensing has pitched in 134 games in his big-league career, but he hasn't pitched in a meaningful game since 2009. He missed the entire 2010 season with shoulder problems after signing with the Tampa Bay Rays that offseason. He pitched in the minors for the New York Yankees and Pittsburgh Pirates in 2011.

Kensing has an 8-9 lifetime record with two career saves and a 5.81 ERA for the Miami Marlins from 2004 to '09 and with the Washington Nationals in 2009. In his career, he's struggled whenever given the closer's role. His two saves have come in 13 opportunities. He's struck out 143 hitters in 161 career innings with a .277 batting average against and a 1.63 WHIP.
