The Colorado Rockies announced on Monday that they released pitcher Jon Garland.
Garland, 33, had been released by the Seattle Mariners in spring training, but landed a spot in the Rockies' rotation.
He was just 4-6 with a 5.82 ERA in 12 starts, and opponents were hitting .315 against him.
Roy Oswalt may be ready to join the Rockies after one or two more minor-league starts.
