MLB Hot Stove: Colorado Rockies In Talks With J.C. Romero

The 2012 MLB hot stove continues to heat up as the Colorado Rockies look to build a championship 25-man roster for next year. According to Troy Trenck of The Denver Post, the Rockies are in talks with free agent left-handed reliever J.C. Romero:

@TroyRenck: A backburner issue, but #Rockies remain interested in bringing back left-handed reliever J.C. Romero. Have had talks.

Romero, who was thrice released in 2011 and finally signed for good with the Rockies in August, pitched in 12 games for Colorado, finishing the season with a 4.01 ERA and 3.96 FIP.

Despite being a lefty, the Rockies used Romero for usually four of five batters per outing, and performed reasonably well in late season action, allowing runs in only 3 of his 12 appearances.
