Colorado Rockies remove Manny Corpas from 40 man roster


The Colorado Rockies announced today that they have removed right handed relief pitcher Manny Corpas off their 40 man roster according to the Denver Post.

It’s unclear right now if he’s been out righted to the minor leagues or designated for assignment. Soon to be 31 year old Corpas signed a minor league contract with the R0ckies on January 8th of this year.

His contract was later purchased by the Rockies from Colorado Springs on June 2nd.

Corpas missed the entire 2011 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery.

He spent most of his 2012 season with the Chicago Cubs where he posted a 5.01 ERA over 46 2/3 innings pitched through 48 games before being out righted by the Cubs. After being removed from Chicago’s 40 man roster he elected to test the free agency market.

So apparently his second stint with the Colorado Rockies didn’t work out all that well as he’ll look to find yet another place to call home.

Hopefully he can do enough to make sure he remains on the 40 man roster instead of letting history repeat itself.
