Rockies Add Rosario, Pacheco, Weathers, Billings, Riordan to Roster

With the Reserves Deadline tomorrow, teams around the league are choosing whom to protect from the Rule 5 Draft coming up on December 9th. The Rockies have added PuRPs C Wilin Rosario, C Jordan Pacheco, relievers Bruce Billings and Casey Weathers to the active roster. They also added starter Cory Riordan, who just missed the PuRPs list this last voting round.

Jack Etkin of Inside the Rockies has a detailed report.

With these five players added, the 40 man Roster now sits at 37 players, giving us room to participate in the Rule 5 Draft should we so choose, though the Rockies have tended to avoid that in past years.

Notable players who remain eligible to be drafted away from us include starters Keith Weiser and Alan Johnson (as well as Greg Smith who remained in Rockies control during free agent declaration), relievers Craig Baker, Andy Graham, Sean Jarrett and Andrew Johnston, and position players Mike Paulk, Warren Schaeffer and Brian Rike. Of these names, only Weiser had a real shot of being protected.

Check after the jump for a complete list of eligible Rule 5 draftees in the Rockies organization.
