Found February 21, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
The Colorado Rockies would like to add one more capable starting pitcher before the start of the regular season, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. Rosenthal believes the Rockies are armed with the position-player depth to swing such a trade. While the Rockies have several options at multiple positions entering the regular season, Rosenthal expects the team to trade a catcher if they are able to swing a deal for a starting pitcher. Colorado currently has Wilin Rosario, Ramon Hernandez and Jordan Pacheco on its 40-man roster, with Yorvit Torrealba in camp as a non-roster invitee. Of the four backstops mentioned, Rosenthal believes Hernandez, and the $3.2 million remaining on his contract, is the most likely to be traded. The Rockies reportedly characterize a capable starter as someone who can long 150 to 175 innings with an ERA in the 4.50-4.75 range. The Los Angeles Dodgers would seem to have a pair of starters, Chris Capuano and Aaron Harang, which would fit this mold. The Rockies already have a projected starting rotation that includes Jhoulys Chacin, Jeff Francis, Jorge De La Rosa, Drew Pomeranz and Juan Nicasio.

Will The Colorado Rockies Be The Worst Team In Baseball?

Will Rockies' depth lead to a trade?

  SCOTTSDALE, Az. – Few expect much from the Colorado Rockies’ pitching staff this season, and understandably so. The Rockies had a 5.49 team ERA in 2012, the worst in the National League by nearly a run per nine innings.   Offensively, though, the Rockies should be a handful for opposing staffs – and they’re deep enough in hitters to possibly swing a trade for another...

Colorado Rockies: 3 Up and 3 Down

What the Colorado Rockies did as a baseball club last year was unsightly.  At 64-98, they finished 30 games back of the Giants in the NL West.  Only the Houston Astros, who mostly resemble a AA team, kept them from baseball’s worst record.

The Rockies Want Josh Fogg, And It Makes Sense

As Ken Rosenthal reported earlier this week, the Rockies are looking to add a starting pitcher. This should surprise nobody — the club was an easy last place in the majors in both ERA and FIP last season, and even adjusting for Coors Field leaves them 28th and 26th (last and second-to-last in the NL) respectively in ERA- and FIP-. What did surprise me was who their target should...
