Rockies Select Contract Of Matt Holliday

Published

The Colorado Rockies have selected the contract of Matt Holliday, who signed a minor league deal with Colorado last month, which will bring him back to the team for the first time since 2008, according to the Denver Post’s Patrick Saunders.

The 38-year old slugger was hopeful to continue his career, but there were questions regarding his big league future after he went unsigned this past offseason. Holliday made the most of his opportunity with Triple-A Albuquerque, posting a .346/.452/.596 slash line with 3 homers.

A spot was created on their 40-man roster when Chris Rabago was claimed on outright waivers by the New York Yankees, whom Holliday spent the 2017 season playing for. The Rockies optioned Garrett Hampson was optioned to Triple A in a corresponding move.
