Rockies add Lamet off waivers from Brewers

The Colorado Rockies claimed right-hander Dinelson Lamet off waivers from the Milwaukee Brewers, the teams announced Friday.

The Brewers designated Lamet for assignment Wednesday in a flurry of moves.

Lamet didn't throw a single pitch for the Brewers after he was dealt to the club in the Josh Hader trade with the San Diego Padres on Monday.

The 30-year-old finished fourth in NL Cy Young voting during the 2020 pandemic-shortened campaign after posting a 2.09 ERA with 12.1 K/9 over 12 starts. However, he's dealt with multiple injuries since his breakout season that stalled his career and forced him to pitch out of the bullpen.
