DENVER -- The Rockies’ scouting relationships with players from the Denver area have paid off in another non-drafted free agent -- University of Kansas right-handed relief pitcher Blake Goldsberry, who agreed to terms with the club. The Rockies have not confirmed.

During this past shortened collegiate season, Goldsberry -- an athletic 6-foot-4 and 215 pounds -- pitched 10 scoreless innings over seven games and struck out eight against one walk. Goldsberry starred at Cherry Creek (Colo.) High School, where he went 8-1 with a 2.33 ERA during his senior year, and he was a player in the Rockies Scout Team program during the fall season.

Goldsberry, an academic All-Big 12 selection throughout his collegiate days, has a fastball running 90-95 mph, an above-average changeup and a slider that has improved at Kansas.

This year, former scout team players now in the Rockies’ fold, along with Goldsberry, are 2020 MLB Draft fourth-round pick Case Williams of Douglas County High School (Castle Rock, Colo.) and undrafted free-agent catcher Luke Leisenring of Ralston Valley High (Arvada, Colo.).
