The Rockies have recalled Kyle Parker from Triple-A Albuquerque in place of Corey Dickerson, who hit the disabled list with a rib injury. Parker, who turns 26 next month, was called up three times last year but only had 26 at-bats. For whatever reason, Walt Weiss thought it was more important to play his veterans in the final month of 2014. Parker has put up solid numbers in Triple-A this year, hitting .280 with nine home runs and 58 RBI. Depending on how long Dickerson is out, Kyle Parker should get a solid workload to show that he deserves to stay in the big leagues.

Jeff Bridich: Deadline doesn't mean trading season is over for Rockies – The Denver Post

Jeff Bridich has a plan. At least, we hope he does. After trading Troy Tulowitzki, Bridich made no other significant moves before the trade deadline. Trades can still happen this month, but players will need to pass through waivers before that can happen. There's a good chance we could see either Carlos Gonzalez or Jose Reyes moved this month.

Trade Deadline: 30 teams, 30 takes – Sports on Earth

A lot of people, including myself, thought Jeff Bridich would flip Jose Reyes before the trade deadline for more pitching prospects, but it didn't happen. The Rockies plan looks a little more confusing now, but that could all change with an active month of trades.

Reacting To The Colorado Rockies' Moves At The Trade Deadline – RoxPile

Some more trade deadline talk, as Bobby DeMuro provides his take on the Rockies moves. DeMuro likes the Tulo trade, and I do to, but it doesn't makes a lot of sense without some additional moves. Again, there could be some movement this month so I wouldn't give up on Bridich just yet.
