Rockies Looking To Improve Bench

The Rockies are dissatisfied with their lack of athleticism and plan to shake up their bench, major-league sources tell Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.  The players that are most in jeopardy are infielders Alfredo Amezaga and Jose Lopez while they seem sweet on the idea of promoting Eric Young Jr. and Chris Nelson.

Lopez has a minor-league option remaining, but his five-plus years of Major League service allow him to reject a demotion and choose free agency.  If that happens, Rosenthal writes that he would likely clear waivers and sign a Triple-A contract elsewhere.  Lopez is signed to a one-year, $3.6MM contract and sources say that he's generating minimal trade interest.

The versatile Amezaga would also be exposed to waivers if the Rockies tried to demote him to Triple-A.
