Originally written July 16, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
It isn't known if the Rockies will be buyers or sellers, but it sounds like they will be the ones buying this time and not the ones selling. One of the positions the Rockies may look to improve as the deadline approaches is their bullpen, which is needing one more piece to the puzzle. It appears that they have their sights set on one reliever in particular. The Colorado Rockies have expressed interest in White Sox reliever Jesse Crain, according to Troy Renck of the Denver Post. While the Rockies have interest, Renck says that the Rockies know he won't come cheap, as he has been one of the most dominant relievers, when healthy. The problem right now is that Crain is currently on the disabled list with a shoulder injury, so it's likely that the Rockies would wait for him to pitch a couple of outings before stepping up their pursuit of him. If the Rockies were to acquire Crain, they would be adding one of the most dominant relievers in the game of baseball. On the year, Crain is 2-3 with a microscopic 0.74 ERA and a 46/11 strikeout-to-walk ratio. The most impressive thing about Crain's season is that he has not allowed a home run. In 38 games pitched with 36.2 innings pitched, not one home run. That's impressive. While the 32-year-old free agent to be would likely be a rental for the Rockies, it would show that they are serious about acquiring top notch talent to help them win the division. While the cost to acquire Crain may be a lot, it could go a long ways in helping the Rockies capture the division title.
