Colorado Rockies outfielder Seth Smith is drawing trade interest from several clubs, GM Dan O'Down said, as reported by Thomas Harding of MLB.com.
“Seth is very, very well-liked within the game,” O'Dowd said. “I'm not sure we're going to do anything, but we've had a lot of calls on Seth.”
Smith is projected to make about $2.6 million in 2012 as an arbitration-eligible player and with the Rockies looking to add young-but-experienced pitchers, Smith may be sacrificed by the team.
