Rox sign Vargas, White to Minor League deals
DENVER -- Right-handers Claudio Vargas and Sean White each will try to bounce back from difficult 2010 seasons with the Rockies this year, as each has agreed to terms on Minor League contracts with invitations to Spring Training.

Vargas, 32, posted a 1.78 ERA in 28 relief appearances for the Brewers in 2009 but had a 7.32 ERA in 17 games with Milwaukee last season before the club cut ties with him. He is 48-40 with a 4.83 ERA in 217 Major League games, including 114 starts, with the Expos, D-backs, Brewers, Mets and Dodgers.

White, who turns 30 on April 25, recorded a 2.80 ERA in 52 appearances for the Mariners in 2009 but saw that number balloon, to 5.24, with Seattle last season.

The pair will compete for bullpen jobs.
