Colorado Rockies starting pitcher Kyle Freeland has played three full Major League seasons. He finished fourth in Cy Young voting in his second year, but was demoted to the minor leagues the following campaign.
Our Colorado Rockies preview a year ago was very positive. As the 2020 season nears, the outlook is uncertain and to be blunt, much less uplifting.
There aren’t many other ways that the Yankees could get better this off season but while they seem to have their business in order, there is one lingering trade in the air that Brian Cashman could well swoop in to take the Yankees to another level.
Outfielder Marcell Ozuna is set to have an intriguing free agency.
The 2019 MLB free agent class will go down in history with a great deal of star pitching and many teams with obvious needs on the mound. Most eyes are on Gerrit Cole, Stephen Strasburg and Madison Bumgarner – two World Series MVPs and a total of three generational aces.
Yasmani Grandal declined a $16 million mutual option with the Milwaukee Brewers to re-enter free agency after a frustrating offseason in 2018/19.
Colorado Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado isn’t a name many expected to see in trade talks this winter, but The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal speculated that the Rockies could look to move their franchise star this offseason after a nightmare 2019.
The trade deadline in MLB, for the first time a sole one, is just nine days away and needless to say a lot of star pitchers from underachieving teams are on the market. With Madison Bumgarner off market for now, attention turns to Texas Rangers ace Mike Minor – second in Earned Run Average in the American League with 2.86.
Miami Marlins have been contacted about the availability of Jose Urena, Craig Mish reported.
Colorado Rockies dramatically won the wildcard game last season, but they were thoroughly outplayed by the Brewers in the Division Series.
It may not be until 2021 that the Collective Bargaining Agreement between the Players’ Union and Major League Baseball expires, but there is a definite shadow being cast by that deadline which can be observed throughout the game.
Swiss-army knife Marwin Gonzalez is one of several big-name, unsigned free agents. The former Houston Astro could fit on almost any Major League roster, but interest has been relatively limited thus far.
Infielder D.J. LeMahieu has agreed to join the New York Yankees on a two-year, $24 million contract, per Jack Curry.
Other than Arenado and Story, Colorado just didn't have enough.
