Tracy Ringolsby of the Rocky Mountain News reports that the Rockies are "finalizing details" on a minor league deal for outfielder Scott Podsednik. The idea is to let Pods battle Cory Sullivan for the backup center field job in Spring Training.
Podsednik as an extra outfielder seems like a decent idea. He may have been treated as a starter for a bit too long.
Ringolsby adds that the Rockies haven’t made progress on a long-term deal with Brad Hawpe and will probably just ink him for one year for now.
