COLBY RASMUS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Cory Rasmus and Grant Green Can’t Catch a Break

They’re major leaguers, getting to play games and getting paid a lot of money to do it. And yet part of me can’t help but feel just a little bad for Cory Rasmus and Grant Green. These are two players who seemingly have the skillset to help the Angels win a lot of games, and yet they’re relegated to back-up duty, non-key roles or even the dreaded assignment to AAA Salt Lake...

Colby Rasmus, the Astros, and Strikeouts

I don’t think one should require much convincing that the Houston Astros are taking a worthwhile shot in signing Colby Rasmus. Most simply, it’s a one-year contract for a 28-year-old, and it’s worth just $8 million. Rasmus has had a volatile career — last year he finished with a .287 OBP — but he was […]

Astros, free-agent OF Rasmus agree to one-year contract

HOUSTON -- Outfielder Colby Rasmus has agreed to a one-year contract with the Houston Astros. The deal was announced Tuesday, a day after Houston dealt last year's starting center fielder, Dexter Fowler, to the Chicago Cubs.

Orioles sniffing around Colby Rasmus, Andre Ethier

The Baltimore Orioles need an outfielder to replace the departed Nick Markakis, and they’ve been inquiring about two intriguing players – free agent Colby Rasmus and current Dodger Andre Ethier. MASN’s Roch Kubatko reports that Rasmus is the far more likely option, largely because of Ethier’s ridiculous contract with Los Angeles. Manager Buck Showalter met with Rasmus...

An Attempted Defense of Colby Rasmus’ Defense

Is there a more infuriating player in the game than Colby Rasmus? Rasmus put up a 4-win age-23 season with St. Louis in 2010 and looked like a future star thanks to power, on-base skills (combining for a 130 wRC+) and adequate center field defense. By the end of 2011, though, he was a Blue Jay — […]

Let’s talk about Colby Rasmus

For some inexplicable reason, I’ve always been a Colby Rasmus fan. Actually, I can explain it – Tony La Russa hates Colby Rasmus, so I must love him. Traded for pennies on the dollar to Toronto, Rasmus (the former #3 prospect in baseball) has had a very up-and-down career so far. He’s now a free agent, and one the Cubs will no doubt look into. Offense Rasmus has put up some...

2013 fluke or future - Colby Rasmus

Would you believe me if I told you that Colby Rasmus' slugging percentage was only seven points lower than McCutchen in 2013? Would you believe me if I told you that he had a more valuable season than Adam Jones? How about if I told you that he had a better defensive season than Span, Ellsbury, Blanco and McCutchen? I would not blame you if you would not have believed any of those...
