The Colorado Rockies announced tonight that the club has decided to not tender a contract to infielder Jonathan Herrera.
Herrera, 24, made his Major League debut in 2008 and hit .230 (14-for-61) with 3 RBI in 28 games for the Rockies. The switch-hitting infielder spent the majority of the season at Triple-A Colorado Springs, where he batted .310 (70-for-226) with 3 home runs and 33 RBI in 66 games. Herrera, who was signed by the Rockies as a minor league free agent when he was 17, just completed his seventh season with the organization.
The Rockies now have 38 players on the 40-man roster
