Rockies acquire All Star pitcher

COL bolsters bullpen with relief pitcher

DENVER, Colo. - The Colorado Rockies cast their first line into the trade deadline waters on Wednesday, acquiring relief pitcher and 2017 All Star Pat Neshek from the Philadelphia Phillies.

Neshek, 36, is a two-time All Star - this year with the Phillies, and in 2014 as a member of the St. Louis Cardinals.

Neshek is 3-2 with a 1.12 ERA (40.1 IP, 5 ER) in 43 relief appearances for Philadelphia.

The Rockies will send three minor league players to the Phillies in the deal: infielder Jose Gomez, right-handed pitcher J.D. Hammer and right-handed pitcher Alejandro Requena.
