Here’s the latest out of the Mile High City…
- Michael Cuddyer hasn’t spoken to the Rockies about a contract extension, though he tells Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post that he would certainly listen to such an offer. “I love it here….I like [the] guys, I like the organization and I like everything about it. It would definitely be one of the tops on my list,” Cuddyer said. The veteran is currently hoping for a good diagnosis on his shoulder injury and hopes he can return to action before the end of the season. Cuddyer is set to be a free agent this winter.
- Jorge de la Rosa is another pending Rockies free agent who could be traded, though could re-sign with Colorado this winter, CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman notes. Heyman ranks de la Rosa on the low side of his latest trade value stock watch piece, but the southpaw bounced back from a tough June with a quality start and win over the Dodgers on Saturday.
- With Troy Tulowitzki healthy and producing at an MVP-type level, Fangraphs’ Mike Petriello argues that it’s time for the Rockies to trade their superstar. Colorado’s hopes of contending in the near future look shaky at best, Petriello opines, so there’s no point in keeping Tulowitzki around on a losing team.
