The Colorado Rockies signed Jose Mujica to a free-agent deal and designated fellow right-hander Wes Parsons for assignment.

Mujica, who spent last season recovering from Tommy John surgery, was 6-2 with a 3.75 ERA over 13 minor-league appearances (12 starts) to open the 2018 season in the Tampa Bay Rays organization. The 23-year old eventually had elbow surgery in September of that year.

Parsons, 27, was claimed off waivers by the Rockies in September from the Milwaukee Brewers. He was a combined 1-2 with a 5.45 ERA in 32 appearances for the Atlanta Braves and Rockies this past season.
