The Colorado Rockies have signed shortstop Tommy Manzella to a minor league contract.

The Colorado Rockies have signed shortstop Tommy Manzella to a minor league contract, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports on Twitter. Rosenthal reports that Manzella was given an invite to major league spring training as well.

Manzella most recently played for the Chicago White Sox organization, where he was assigned to Triple-A Charlotte in 2011. He didn't see the majors with Chicago, or any of his three previous teams. You have to go back to the team that drafted him in 2005 - the Houston Astros - to find his major league experience.

Houston took Manzella in the third round of the 2005 amateur draft, and he saw limited time with the Astros in 2009, appearing in just seven games. In 2010, he appeared in 83 games with 282 plate appearances. He had 17 runs, 58 hits, 21 RBIs and a single homerun, with a batting average of .225 and an OBP of .267.

After he was waived by Houston, he went to the Arizona Diamondbacks, then the Milwaukee Brewers, and finally the aforementioned White Sox.
