The Rockies announced that they signed Alfredo Amezaga to a minor league contract and invited him to Spring Training.
Amezaga, 33, barely played in 2009 and missed the 2010 season after undergoing microfracture knee surgery. He appeared in 125 games at four positions for the 2008 Marlins, hitting .264/.312/.367. He has big league experience at every position but pitcher and catcher.
FishStripes has a very soft, squishy spot in its heart for The Amazing One, and regardless of where he hangs his cape, we will always consider him a Florida Marlin (that is, as long as he saves his miraculous moves for games not played against the Fish).
So, any chance the Rockies would be interested in an Amezaga-for-Bonifacio deal? By our extensive analysis of the stats, the Marlins mid-game dugout dancing would improve by 7,000% with Alfredo back on the bench.
