Rockies Interested In Jonny Gomes

With Michael Cuddyer​ and Josh Willingham looking for three-year contracts, the possibility exists that the Rockies will shift their focus to a more powerful platoon player to pair with Seth Smith.  With that in mind, the Rockies have expressed interest in free agent outfielder Jonny Gomes​, according to Troy E. Renck of The Denver Post.  

The Rockies were in on Grady Sizemore but with the centerfielder on the cusp of a one-year deal with the Indians the club is now exploring other options.  Using Gomes with Smith in a platoon would be an affordable solution.  Last season, Gomes hit .209/.325/.389 with 14 homers.
