Colorado Rockies agree to three-year contract with left-handed pitcher Mike Dunn
DENVER - The Colorado Rockies announced Thursday that they have agreed to terms on a three-year contract with free agent left-handed relief pitcher Mike Dunn.
- Dunn, 31, made 51 appearances for the Miami Marlins in 2016 while recording a 3.40 ERA (42.1 IP, 16 ER) with 11 walks and 38 strikeouts. The left-handed reliever began the 2016 season on the 15-day disabled list with a left forearm strain, his first career stint on the disabled list.
- Made at least 70 appearances in four of his last six seasons, and is the Marlins' all-time leader in relief appearances (405), wins by a relief pitcher (26) and holds (104). Since 2011, Dunn's 405 appearances are tied for the eighth-most among active relievers, the second-most among active left-handed relievers.
- Originally drafted by the New York Yankees in the 33rd round of the 2004 First-Year Player Draft, the Farmington, N.M., native made his Major League debut with the Yankees on Sept. 4, 2009 vs. Toronto. In parts of eight seasons with the Yankees (2009), Atlanta Braves (2010) and Miami Marlins (2011-16), Dunn has gone 28-25 with four saves, a 3.54 ERA (351.0 IP, 138 ER), 172 walks and 389 strikeouts.
The Rockies currently have 39 players on their 40-man roster.
