Rockies Rumors: Cespedes, Weiss, Cuddyer

Here's a look at the latest out of Denver..

  • Troy Renck of the Denver Post sees Yoenis Cespedes as a name for Rockies fans to file away this offseason.  The A's like to think outside of the box and could consider deals for the slugger.  One of Cespedes' main drawbacks is that he misses chunks of time, but the Rockies have solid depth with Charlie Blackmon and Corey Dickerson.
  • Rockies owner Dick Monfort met with his front office staff last week and no major changes are expected, Renck writes.  Small changes could see assistant GM Bill Geivett assume more traditional GM duties.  Manager Walt Weiss' contract situation should be resolved soon, with the possibility that he receives a multiyear deal, or a one-year deal with a club option.
  • Monfort wrote a letter to season ticket holders pledging to do everything he can to win a championship, Renck writes.  Within the letter, Monfort noted that Michael Cuddyer will likely take over for Todd Helton at first base, creating "an opportunity to fill (right field) with a big bat."
