The Rockies acquired right-hander Cal Quantrill from the Cleveland Guardians in a trade announced Friday. It’s a move designed to bolster Colorado’s thin starting rotation.
Cleveland will receive minor league catcher Kody Huff in return. Additionally, the Rockies designated right-hander Tommy Doyle to create room on the 40-man roster.
Quantrill, 28, saw his ERA balloon to 5.24 with the Guardians this past season as he dealt with shoulder issues. He spent two stints on the injured list and pitched just 99 2/3 innings. The Guardians designated Quantrill for assignment earlier this week.
Quantrill was an effective pitcher for Cleveland in 2021-22, posting a 3.16 ERA.
