DENVER: Right-hander Dereck Rodrguez has signed a minor-league contract with the Colorado Rockies that includes an invitation to spring training.

Dereck Rodrguez appeared in 51 games over three seasons with the San Francisco Giants. He compiled a 12-15 record with a 4.27 ERA before being designated for assignment by the Giants on Aug. 26. He was claimed five days later off waivers by Detroit before recently becoming a free agent.

Rodrguez made his major league debut at Coors Field on May 29, 2018. He allowed four runs, one earned, over 3 1/3 innings. He also had an RBI double off Kyle Freeland.

Rodrguez was originally a sixth-round pick by the Minnesota Twins in 2011.
