Rockies Open To Trading Position Players For Pitching

The Rockies will entertain trade possibilities for multiple position players, including Dexter Fowler and Michael Cuddyer, opposing executives and scouts tell Troy E. Renck of The Denver Post.  The club doesn't plan to trade shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, but clubs are expected to see if the Rockies will change their tune as the winter progresses.

Colorado is able to make Fowler and Cuddyer available thanks in large part to Tyler Colvin's ability to play all three outfield positions.  If Todd Helton returns from hip labrum surgery that also will bolster the situation at first base where Cuddyer would be in the mix. 

Renck notes that Atlanta and Philadelphia could be fits for Fowler as they seek a center fielder and the Braves had interest in him when they were shopping infielder Martin Prado.  The 26-year-old is also an Atlanta native and plans on living there this offseason.
