Bianchi signed a minor league contract with the Rockies on Friday, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports. Given that Trevor Story will be the Opening Day starter for the Rockies, Colorado suddenly needed organizational depth at shortstop, prompting them to sign Bianchi.

His only chance to reach the major leagues would be in the event of the Rockies infield getting plagued with injuries.
