Maine joining Rockies but Crede isn’t
The Rockies have reached a Minor League agreement with right-hander John Maine, who won 15 games in 2007 but has battled shoulder problems in recent years, the team said Thursday. Maine went 1-3 with a 6.13 ERA in nine starts with the Mets last year. Maine will join the Rockies Saturday.
Infielder Joe Crede, who reached a Minor League agreement with the Rockies, before camp, decided not to report to Spring Training, the Rockies announced Thursday morning. No reason was given. Crede last played for the Twins in 2009, but missed the end of that season and all of 2010 because of back surgery.
