Mark Reynolds interested in re-signing with the Rockies

Mark Reynolds, indispensable for Rockies this season, wants to return next season | The Denver Post
Mark Reynolds told Patrick Saunders that he'd be happy to return to Colorado next season. "I'm comfortable here, I like the players, I like the staff and I love Denver," he said. The Rockies will have to make a tough decision. Reynolds is probably only worth bringing back on a one-year deal, but that one year could be a valuable time for a young player like Ryan McMahon to develop. Not only that, but the Rockies will also have Ian Desmond around.

Desmond will have a tough time finding outfield playing time with David Dahl, Raimel Tapia, Charlie Blackmon, and Gerardo Parra on the roster. That would seem to leave him with first base. And that would relegate Ryan McMahon back to Triple-A, unless the Rockies trade DJ LeMahieu as he enters the final year of team control. These things often have a way of working themselves out, but right now, it looks tricky.

Tyler Anderson supplants struggling rookie Kyle Freeland in Rockies' rotation
Saunders reports that Tyler Anderson will take Kyle Freeland's place in the starting rotation, and it's not because of the bruise Freeland got after getting hit with a line drive in his last start. Bud Black said Freeland needed to "take a step back." Anderson will start Sunday against San Diego. Freeland could make an appearance out of the bullpen. Black said that Anderson, who is not fully stretched out since returning from the disabled list, should throw between 50-70 pitches before the bullpen takes over.

The Year in Successful Non-Prospects | FanGraphs Baseball
The National League West is host to four of the ten non-prospects (never ranked in a Baseball America top 100) who have had a good year (3 or more fWAR). Two play for the Dodgers, Chris Taylor and Justin Turner. Another, Paul Goldschmidt, is a possible Hall of Famer. And the last handles center field for the Colorado Rockies, that bearded beauty Charlie Blackmon.
