Delcarmen traded to Rockies for minor leaguer Balcom-Miller


According to multiple reports, the Red Sox have traded Manny Delcarmen and cash considerations to the Colorado Rockies for pitcher Chris Balcom-Miller.

Delcarmen's tenure with the Red Sox comes to an end after 10 years in the organization. Drafted out of high school in the second round of the 2000 draft, he made 289 appearances out of the bullpen for the Red Sox since debuting in 2005. The Massachusetts native notched a career 11-6 record with a 3.89 ERA. In his 284.1 innings pitched, Delcarmen struck out 243 and walked 131, while posting a 1.36 career WHIP.

Balcom-Miller was drafted in the 35th round of the 2008 draft by the Royals, but chose to return to West Valley College for another year. In 2009, he signed with the Rockies after being drafted in the 6th round. The right-hander spent the rest of the 2009 campaign with Casper in Rookie ball. In 11 starts, he went 4-0 with a 1.58 ERA, fanning 60 batters in 57 innings.

This season, the 21-year-old has made 19 starts for Asheville, the Rockies South Atlantic League affiliate. He is 6-7 with a 3.31 ERA, and has struck out 117 batters while walking just 19 in 108.2 innings. Balcom-Miller will report to Single-A Greenville. Coincidentally, Balcom-Miller's last start was Sunday against the Drive, when he was tagged for 5 runs on 8 hits in 5.2 innings.
