DENVER (AP) -The NL champion Colorado Rockies added two pitchers on Wednesday, agreeing to one-year contracts with right-hander Kip Wells and lefty Mark Redman.
The 30-year-old Wells was 7-17 with a 5.70 ERA for the St. Louis Cardinals this season. He is 64-91 in 231 career games with the Chicago White Sox, Pittsburgh, Texas and St. Louis.
Wells' deal is worth $3.1 million, with an additional $1.5 million available in performance bonuses.
Redman was signed by Colorado in late August, going 2-0 with a 3.20 ERA in five games. Redman, who will turn 34 next month, also pitched for Atlanta this year. He was a combined 2-4 with a 7.62 ERA in 11 games for the Braves and Rockies.
Both Wells and Redman are former first-round draft picks. Wells was taken with the 16th selection by the White Sox in 1998, and Redman was chosen 13th overall by Minnesota in 1995.
The Rockies have been focused on pitching lately. They gave right-hander Aaron Cook a $30 million, three-year contract extension, and re-signed reliever Matt Herges and catcher Yorvit Torrealba.
