Rockies sign Parker, place Hawpe on waivers…
The Rockies yesterday report finally signing their first round draft pick and two sport star Kyle Parker. Story here.
Not even 24 hours after, the Rockies have placed outfielder Brad Hawpe on waivers. Story here. The Rockies wont really miss Hawpe should another team claim him off of waivers. I don’t believe it’s an issue of “should”, but more of “which” team will claim him. Hawpe’s numbers are way down from his all-star season a year ago, with a .252 batting average and only 7 homeruns.
Ken Rosenthal of FoxSports.com reports that the Braves have some interest in Clint Barmes. I’m keeping my fingers crossed on this one happening should the Rockies place him on waivers.
