Rox take new look at Tim Redding
One Rockies free agency target, right-handed reliever Matt Capps, reportedly is leaning to the Nationals. But when news of the Rockies’ interest in Capps came to light, general manager Dan O’Dowd said the club was looking at a variety of pitchers. According to a Major League source, one is right-hander Tim Redding. The Rockies pursued Redding last year, but he signed a one-year, $2 million deal with the Mets.
Redding had foot surgery after the 2008 season and didn’t become active until May. He went 3-6 with a 5.10 ERA in 30 games, including 17 starts. With the Rockies, Redding would offer insurance for the starting rotation or give the bullpen length and experience.
