No go for Joe. But the Rockies are ready for Randy. Bent on adding left-handed relief depth, Colorado signed Randy Flores to a $600,000 minor-league deal with an invitation to spring training, according to contract information obtained by The Denver Post.

The Rockies had flirted with the idea of making a run at Joe Beimel, but general manager Dan O'Dowd moved on after the asking price never came down.

For Flores, this is a reunion of sorts. He made a cameo for the Rockies in 2002, compiling a 9.53 ERA in eight games, including two starts. He returned to the big leagues in 2004 with the St. Louis Cardinals where he found his niche as a late-inning reliever. He compiled a 5.26 ERA in 43 games last season for St. Louis, but posted a 4.25 mark in 70 games in 2007.

He is recovering from shoulder surgery, which is reflected in his contract. If he's not on the Rockies' 25-man roster by April 30, he will be released for a position on an active roster elsewhere, if requested.
