Colorado Rockies Unlikely To Tender Contract To Manny Delcarmen

The Colorado Rockies are unlikely to tender reliever Manny Delcarmen, according to the Denver Post's Troy Renck. Delcarmen was acquired from the Boston Red Sox in late August for the stretch run for right handed pitching prospect Chris Balcolm-Miller.

Also in talking to a source, the Rockies are expected to non-tender reliever Manny Delcarmen. Interesting experiment that didn't work outless than a minute ago via TweetDeck

 

Delcarmen was an elite reliever with Boston from 2006-2008  -- and a Boston-raised hometown hero -- helping the Red Sox win the 2007 World Series over the Rockies. He has struggled since the 2009 season and has been unable to find the same control that made him successful at the beginning of his career.

Seen as a "live arm" in the bullpen, Delcarmen failed to impress the Rockies' front office in his brief time within the organization and will become a free agent.
