The Colorado Rockies announced Wednesday that they have acquired reliever Pat Neshek in a trade from the Philadelphia Phillies. As the Phillies noted, they will receive three minor leaguers in the deal in shortstop Jose Gomez as well as pitchers Alejandro Requena and J.D. Hammer. Neshek is in the midst of the best year of his career, currently posting a 1.12 ERA with 45 strikeouts in 40.1 innings. It was enough for the journeyman to earn his second All-Star appearance. He also went to the Mid-Summer Classic in 2014 when he finished with a 1.87 ERA for the St. Louis Cardinals, one of six teams he has played for in his career before his move to Colorado.
