Rockies invite 5 minor leaguers to spring training
DENVER -- The Colorado Rockies on Friday invited five minor league free agents to spring training.
All five have major league experience, including the 27-year-old Koronka, who in the 2006 season started 23 games for Texas and went 7-7 with a 5.69 ERA. He ranked second among American League rookies in starts and innings pitched.
He started only two games last season and is 8-11 in the majors with a lifetime ERA of 6.02.
