Carlos Gonzalez denies report saying he wants Rockies to trade him – The Denver Post

Thanks to Jon Heyman, we got plenty of excitement yesterday regarding Carlos Gonzalez, with Heyman reporting CarGo "would welcome" a trade. Both Gonzalez and Jeff Bridich denied that any meeting had ever taken place. Heyman later clarified, saying there hadn't been a meeting. All in all, a very confusing situation.

More CarGo news, though this is a little less dramatic. Gonzalez is back in the Home Run Derby. He will face former Red and current White Sox Todd Frazier in the first round. Nolan Arenado was asked about participating, but he declined.

Rockies' Trevor Story vying for NL Final Vote |

The Rockies and the Astros are doing their best to sure that Trevor Story and George Springer win the Final Vote. Nolan Arenado says he's voted over 100 times for Story in an effort to get a third Rockies player on the team. In last night's game, Story tied the record for rookie home runs before the All-Star break with 21. One more home run in the team's remaining three games would give Story sole possession of the record. You can vote on Twitter using the hashtag #StoryTime or by texting N5 to 89269.
