Reds, Rockies swap Galarraga, Frazier

Bob Levey

The teams announced a minor swap on Monday.

The Colorado Rockies have acquired Armando Galarraga from the Cincinnati Reds in exchange for Parker Frazier, according to an announcement from the team. Both players will report to Triple-A for their new organizations.

Galarraga, 31, has spent the season with Triple-A Louisville after signing a minor league deal with the Reds in January. In 16 starts, he is 6-6 with a 2.98 ERA in 84.2 innings of work. The righty has major league time with the Rangers (2007), Tigers (2008-2010), Diamondbacks (2011) and Astros (2012), and has a 26-34 record and 4.78 ERA for his career. He is best known for his "near-perfect game" in 2010, when an incorrect call from umpire Jim Joyce on the last play of the game caused him to lose his perfect game against the Cleveland Indians.

Frazier, 24, has split the season between Double-A Tulsa and Triple-A Colorado Springs. He is a combined 1-2 with a 4.93 ERA on the season, but has struggled mightily at Triple-A so far (0-1, 10.67 ERA in 9 appearances). The reliever was Rockies' eighth round pick in the 2007 draft, and will likely head to Triple-A Louisville for the Reds.
