According to multiple media reports, Kyle Kendrick is heading to the Colorado Rockies. The deal, according to Yahoo! Sports Jeff Passan, is for one year, $5.5 million.
Seems like a very odd fit for Kendrick, but perhaps there really wasn’t much of a market for him. For his career at Coors Field, Kendrick has a 5.26 ERA in seven games, allowing five home runs.
He spent the last eight years with the Phillies, winning 74 games, accumulating a 4.42 ERA. He allowed a career high 102 earned runs last season over a career high 199 innings. Kendrick will certainly give you some innings, the quality of those in Colorado may vary.
