The Rockies are certainly one of the most active teams in trade rumors.
They've been linked to Dan Uggla for weeks, but as Troy Renck of the Denver Post notes , it's unlikely Uggla heads to Colorado.
Why? Because the second baseman is expensive in both salary and cost, the Marlins are considering retaining him and Uggla isn't crazy about playing third base which he may be asked to do in Colorado.
That makes Ty Wigginton (pictured) a more iikely target as the Rockies want to save up their trade pieces for a frontline starter like Dan Haren or a longterm solution at first base. While the team would love a frontline starter, it won't go balls to the wall for one as it has to balance winning with the future, given its inability to spend like the behemoths on the east coast.
Would they give up a ton for Haren? Absolutely. Would they overpay? That's a no. And for Arizona to move Haren, an overpay is what it will take as Jon Heyman of Sports Illustrated notes .
The Rox are also monitoring the relief department, keying in on Kevin Gregg and Octavio Dotel. Dotel, a free agent and on a rebuilding club, would cost far less than Gregg who has an affordable club option on his deal. However, even Dotel isn't eminently available, meaning the Rockies will have to shoot lower. Could that mean David Aardsma or a middle relief-type from the Jays such as Jason Frasor?
