West Notes: Rockies, Mariners, Lohse, Saunders

Links out of the Western divisions..

  • The Rockies are still looking for pitching but there's nothing brewing on the trade front, according to Troy Renck of The Denver Post (on Twitter).  Renck believes that the Rockies may look into low-risk free agents like Derek Lowe and Freddy Garcia.  We've yet to hear anything about Colorado and Lowe but they have checked in on Garcia.
  • The Mariners badly want a hitter but they're also looking at starting pitchers, tweets Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.  However, sources say that Kyle Lohse is too pricey while the M's aren't willing to give Joe Saunders a three-year deal.
  • Ben Rogers of ESPNDallas.com looked at potential trade opportunities for the Rangers involving Jurickson Profar, Elvis Andrus, and Ian Kinsler.  However, it would appear that Texas' plan at this stage is to keep all three in the fold to start the 2013 season.
