Update: Francis has agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Rockies, pending a physical, Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com reports.

Recommendation: Francis began last season with the Reds' Triple-A Louisville affiliate before being released and signing with the Rockies, with whom he spent his first six seasons. The 31-year-old southpaw struggled in his 24 starts for Colorado in 2012, going 6-7 with a 5.58 ERA and a 1.478 WHIP. Regardless, it looks like he'll be given a chance to compete for a starting spot in spring training.
