The Colorado Rockies are still eyeing Mets infielder Justin Turner, says Troy Renck of the Denver Post. The Rockies have been discussing a deal for RedSox shortstop Marco Scutaro, but talks seemed to have stalled, and see Turner as a more attainable option than him.
Last month, the Mets and Rockies were said to have been discussing a deal for Jon Niese involving 2B/OF Eric Young Jr, who the Amazin’s seem to have taken a liking to. The Rox though, were not interested in a Turner-for-Young swap. Maybe this new development shows they are warming up to the idea of such a trade?
