    Default Rockies’ Chad Bettis wins Tony Conigliaro Award after battling back from cancer

    When Chad Bettis was waging his battle against cancer, his thoughts and prayers centered on getting well for the sake of his wife, Kristina, and his new-born daughter, Everleigh Rae.

    Bettis’ return as a Rockies starting pitcher was next on his list. The notion of being an inspiration for others came later.

    But that’s what happened.

    Wednesday, the veteran right-hander was selected as the recipient of the 2017 Tony Conigliaro Award. He became the second Rockies player to win the award, joining pitcher Aaron Cook, who was honored in 2005.

    Everleigh is an unfortunate name for a girl.

    Default MLB free agent rumors: Rockies bolster bullpen, close in on Greg Holland deal

    The Rockies, intent on bolstering their bullpen, did so Tuesday and Wednesday with a one-two punch of adding right-hander Bryan Shaw and then agreeing to a deal to retain left-hander Jake McGee.

    The question: Is there such thing as a one-two-three punch?

    With a couple of key setup roles settled, Colorado then reportedly was nearing a deal to re-sign free-agent closer Greg Holland, who had 41 saves for them in a bounce-back 2017 season following Tommy John surgery.

    Hat tip to Bridich who at least seems to be making sensible moves in two consecutive off seasons that address needs...

    There were so many offseasons where we just didn't do anything to address pitching and then would sign a bunch of journeymen and hope for the best.

    Holland wasn't all that effective in the 2nd half and kind of looked out of shape to me, so I hope we don't overpay - but at the same time experienced bullpen arms don't grow on trees and beggars can't be choosers.

    "Depth" signing is probably underselling this a bit - 3 years and $52 million, this is a nice get. Now let's see what other former Royals are available.

    Between Davis, McGee and Shaw, the Rockies signed three of the top seven available free-agent relief pitchers this winter.
    So the Rockies, before the New Year, have invested more than $50 million in their bullpen for the 2018 season — among the priciest bullpens in baseball’s history.
