The Colorado Rockies have agreed with the Minnesota Twins to trade for right hand pitcher Kevin Slowey, according to Thomas Harding. Slowey, 27, had his best season with Minnesota in 2008 when he went 12-11 and had a 3.99 ERA with a 3.96 xFIP, last season his ERA balooned to 6.67, but his peripheral statistics were solid enough to suggest that he was more of a 4.36 range pitcher according to x-FIP. It seems the Rockies are taking a buy low opportunity.

UPDATE:

Troy Renck confirms and reports that:

Rockies will acquire Slowey for player to be named so won't be completed until after Thursday's Rule V draft
