    • Gonzalez Germen: Signs to play in Japan
      By RotoWire Staff

      Germen signed a contract with the Orix Buffaloes to pitch in Japan in 2017, the Japan Times reports. German had a 5.31 ERA with 40.2 innings for the Rockies last season. At age 28, it's possible he could return to MLB if he thrives in Japan.

    • Germen accepted his assignment to Triple-A Albuquerque on Saturday. He was designated for assignment earlier this month and will accept the move, staying in the Rockies' organization. The fact that he is no longer on the 40-man roster suggests he won't rejoin the big league club in September.

    • Rockies' Gonzalez Germen: Struggling as of late
      By RotoWire Staff

      Germen had a rough month of July, allowing 11 earned runs on 15 hits in nine innings pitched. Things just were going very well for Germen prior to the summer months, but the right-hander really cooled down when the weather heated up. This rough patch raised his ERA to 5.63, and to make matters worse, his K/9 now barely hovers above 7.0 after he only mustered five punchouts in July. The 28-year-old should remain in the Colorado bullpen for the time being since a good number of other relievers at the major league level are hurt right now, but it wouldn't be too surprising to see Germen shipped back to Triple-A once the Rockies' main relievers are healthy again.

    • Rockies' Gonzalez Germen: Picks up save Saturday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Germen picked up his first save of the season Saturday against the Diamondbacks, allowing a hit and two walks while striking out one over an inning and one-third. Germen came into the game in the eighth inning to stop the bleeding after Chad Qualls struggled through two-thirds of an inning, but thanks to a four-run eighth inning, the 28-year-old was able to scour an unexpected save after pitching the ninth as well. Don't expect too many more saves going forward, though, especially considering his ERA still sits at a lofty 4.18 and the fact that Jake McGee (knee) will be returning from the disabled list in the not-too-distant future.

    • Germen holds a 1.88 ERA and 1.19 WHIP in 14.1 innings out of the Colorado bullpen this season. Out of all the arms in the Rockies bullpen, Germen has been one of the most pleasant surprises, as he hadn't held an ERA below 3.93 in his big league career until now. His 12:7 K:BB ratio leaves something to be desired, but his 93.3 percent strand rate greatly makes up for that blemish. This success is hardly sustainable considering his low strikeout rate and the abnormally low .220 BABIP he's holding opposing hitters to, but the 28-year-old could garner a bit more usage out of the bullpen if he can continue to get batters out like he has been doing.
