Rockies Rumors: Marquis, Barmes, De La Rosa

More Rockies hot stove info...

  • Free agent starter Jason Marquis told MLB.com's Thomas Harding he'd love to return to the Rockies, but "the ball's in their court."  Last month, Marquis downplayed an assertion from his friend Jeff Francoeur that the pitcher would love to come to New York.  It was a different market, but Marquis' agent snagged his client a three-year, $21MM deal coming off a 6.02 ERA season back in December of '06.  2009 was a typical Marquis season aside from an increased groundball rate. 
  • We already knew the Rockies had designs on locking up closer Huston Street, who's under team control through 2010.  Troy E. Renck of the Denver Post says the Rox also intend to approach Clint Barmes and Jorge de la Rosa about extensions.  Barmes is under team control through 2011, de la Rosa through 2010.
  • Renck believes the Rockies will offer Street "a three-year deal in the neighborhood of $25MM, which might not be enough to sign him but is a good start."  Ah, overpaying for saves.
