Rockies add Friedrich, Cabrera to 40-man roster

Christian Friedrich, a former first-round draft choice, and promising young pitcher Edwar Cabrera were added to the Rockies’ 40-man roster today. Friedrich, 24, experienced a disappointing season at Double-A Tulsa, going 6-10 with a 5.00 ERA. However, he remained healthy and didn’t miss a start until prescribed rest at season’s end. Cabrera, 24, moved onto the team’s radar...

Rockies sign Wood, add two LHP to 40-man

With MLB's Rule 5 Draft taking place this weekend, Friday was the day for teams to get their 40-man rosters in line. The Rockies added left-handed pitchers Christian Friedrich, a 1st round pick in 2008, and Edwar Cabrera, signed out of the Dominican Republic in '08, to the 40-man roster.

What Are The Rockies Doing With Dexter Fowler?

The Colorado Rockies have been active in the hot stove league although they have yet to make a trade or sign a free agent. They have holes to fill, particularly at second base, having lost Mark Ellis to the Los Angeles Dodgers, and on the mound. The Rockies made a run at Jamey Carroll — who played at Coors Field in 2006 and 2007 —  to fill the hole at second but Carroll signed...

Rockies' Todd Helton "fine" with recovery of back in offseason

The assumption was only half correct. It was generally believed that Todd Helton played only four times in September, and not once in the last three weeks, because the Rockies were afterthought in the standings.

Why were the Rockies talking to Milton Bradley’s agents?

If there was ever a more apparent mismatch between professional athlete and organization than Milton Bradley and the Colorado Rockies, I can't think of it. That's why a tweet from Chicago Sun-Times baseball scribe Gordon Wittenmeyer informing us that Rockies officials had met with Bradley's representatives on Wednesday afternoon caught so many people off guard. Actually...

A closer look at Pelfrey- Street

Photo by Michael BaronJoel Sherman reported earlier today that the Mets and Rockies discussed a trade that would be built around Huston Street and Mike Pelfrey.  Intially I was all for the trade but that was probably due to my bias against Pelfrey, whether it comes from trade or non-tender I wish Pelfrey wasn't returning next.  All I've heard is that he provides innings...
