Charlie Blackmon is a damn good centerfielder, and it's going to be very interesting to see the path the Rockies take the next couple weeks — especially when you consider what the outside demand for him might be, and how well David Dahl has been doing down in Triple-A Albuquerque.
We'll have more as soon as we learn what's up with any potential rehab assignment on which the Rockies may send Gerardo Parra. For now, they are going to be without their recently-signed free agent left fielder for at least a little while longer.
The Rockies don’t seem overly motivated to trade Carlos Gonzalez and have passed on opportunities to do so, Rosenthal says. Gonzalez’s contract runs through 2017, coinciding with the end of GM Jeff Bridich’s deal, and Rosenthal implies it might be in Bridich’s best interest to keep Gonzalez around to increase the Rockies’ chances of being competitive until then.
Love the Pile, baby. Love the Pile.
Coinciding with David Dahl's promotion to Triple-A, Tom Murphy has absolutely caught fire. Does this force the Rockies hand? Do they move veteran Nick Hundley before the trade deadline and start a two-catcher system with Murphy and Tony Wolters? Guess we'll see.
