Yankees' Jason Gurka: Signs minor league contract with Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gurka agreed to a minor league deal with the Yankees that includes an invitation to spring training.

The 29-year-old reliever was released by the Rockies in August of last year after struggling mightily in the majors. In just 17.1 big league innings, he has accumulated a career 9.35 ERA. He pitched well at Triple-A, posting a 1.63 ERA in 21.1 innings during 2016, but his major league struggles will probably force him into an organizational depth role.

Jason Gurka: Released by Rockies
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

The Rockies released Gurka on Saturday, MLB.com's Thomas Harding reports.

Gurka, a 28-year-old lefty reliever, had excellent Triple-A numbers (1.65 ERA, 32.6-percent strikeout rate), but his career 9.35 ERA in 17.1 big league innings may have sealed his fate. He will look to catch on with another club on a minor league deal.

Rockies' Jason Gurka: Optioned to Triple-A on Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jason Gurka was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday.

The left-handed reliever was able to land a spot on the Colorado Rockies ' Opening Day roster, but he struggled mightily once the season got underway. He allowed multiple earned runs in each of his first four outings and has only had one scoreless frame in six total appearances. He'll head down to Triple-A to get some extra coaching, but he could be back up with the Rockies the next time they need another lefty out of the bullpen.

Rockies' Jason Gurka: Nabs roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gurka has earned a spot on the Rockies' Opening Day roster.

Gurka was in a battle with both Scott Oberg and Brandon Barnes for one of the two remaining spots and finished spring training with a stat line (1.80 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, 20:1 K:BB) worthy of making the Opening Day roster. Despite securing a spot in the bullpen, it's unlikely he will serve in anything more than a middle relief role for the Rockies early on, so he can safely be avoided in the majority of fantasy leagues.

Rockies' Jason Gurka: Competing for final two roster spots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jason Gurka is in the running for one of the final two roster spots, Nick Groke of the Denver Post reports.

Right-hander Scott Oberg and outfielder Brandon Barnes are also competing for the two spots. The left-hander has been sharp this spring, allowing two earned runs on nine hits in nine innings. He's also displayed ridiculous command, posting an outstanding 19:1 K/BB ratio. His major league debut did not go well last season, but if the Colorado Rockies are simply going off of spring stats, it would be hard to send Gurka to the minors after a performance like this.
