Cubs' Rex Brothers: Signs deal to avoid arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rex Brothers signed a one-year, $1.42 million contract with the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports.

He will receive a relatively modest raise in 2016 after spending most of 2015 with the Rockies' Triple-A affiliate, posting a 4.46 ERA and 1.68 WHIP in 45 appearances. The Cubs seem to think the control issues can be improved upon or overcome to a large extent -- he was able to do so earlier in his career -- but it's hard to imagine Brothers working his way into the back-end discussion with his new team.

Cubs' Rex Brothers: Traded to Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rex Brothers was traded to the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday for Wander Cabrera.

He spent most of the year at Triple-A, and walked more batters than he struck out in 10.1 innings with the Rockies, resulting in his designation for assignment last week. The Cubs will take Brothers on as a low-cost reclamation project, but unless the lefty is able to cut down significantly on the free passes, he will have a tough time earning and maintaining a role with the big club in 2016.

Rex Brothers: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rex Brothers was designated for assignment by the Rockies on Friday, Nick Groke of the Denver Post reports.

After a 2013 season in which Brothers posted a 1.74 ERA and 10.2 K/9 over 72 appearances, many thought the lefty was the future closer in Colorado. However, a disappointing 2014 campaign (5.59 ERA) led to him spending most of 2015 in the minors. While Brothers enjoyed success after his return in September, his overall body of work -- he had a 4.46 ERA and 1.68 WHIP at Triple-A -- wasn't enough to convince the team he deserved a 40-man spot. He will now be subjected to waivers.

Rockies RP Rex Brothers completes fine finish in Sunday win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Colorado Rockies reliever Rex Brothers pitched a scoreless eighth inning and recorded the win in relief Sunday against the San Francisco Giants .

After an uneven year at Triple-A Albuquerque, Brothers seemed to right the ship when he rejoined the Rockies as a September call-up. In 14 appearances spanning 7 2/3 innings, Brothers gave up no runs on five hits and four walks.

The 27-year-old is probably a long shot to regain the closing role he formerly enjoyed in 2013, but his improvement down the stretch could allow him to claim a prominent bullpen spot in 2016.

Rockies recall Wilin Rosario, two others from Triple-A on Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Rockies slugger Wilin Rosario has been recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque. Rosario had two stints with the Rockies earlier this season, but was rather disappointing at the plate. 

The catcher/first baseman hit .273 with just five home runs in 183 at-bats for the Rockies. His numbers were a little bit better with the Isotopes, hitting .297 with five dingers. 

Rosario is in the starting lineup for Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Diamondbacks. He will be at first base and bat cleanup. 

The Rockies also recalled infielder Cristhian Adames and left-hander Rex Brothers from Triple-A, as rosters expanded on Tuesday.
