The Colorado Rockies, a surprise player for top free agents, are making a push for star outfielder Carlos Beltran. The Rockies would like to sign either Beltran or Michael Cuddyer for the outfield.

Colorado has competition for Cuddyer, who was offered $25 million over three years by the incumbent Twins. Minnesota is still hoping to re-sign Cuddyer.
Beltran's market has been something of a mystery, but it is believed Colorado would go two years to add him to the middle of their lineup, where he'd combine with Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez.

Beltran's knee history is a concern to many teams, but he played without knee trouble last year whe he produced for both the Mets and Giants.

The Cardinals have been rumored to be another possible suitor for Beltran, who is still only 33.

The Rockies want to pay Cuddyer more than 3yr $25M?

What a waste of cash.

He would make that lineup a lot more dangerous. I agree that he would be a great fit as a DH though. I'm surprised the Rangers aren't making a play for him. They need to do something to answer the Angels moves.

Terrible fit - Beltrans best defensive years are behind him due to his troublesome knees and trying to cover the large outfield at Coors field will only make the issue worse.

Better fit would be in St Louis or an American League team where he could DH 1/2 the games
