Report: Rockies close to agreement on one-year deal with Carlos Gonzalez

15 Comments

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Rockies are close to an agreement with outfielder Carlos Gonzalez on a one-year deal.

Gonzalez, 32, hit a disappointing .262/.339/.423 with 14 home runs and 57 RBI in 534 plate appearances last season in Colorado.

The Rockies’ outfield is crowded as it is, so Gonzalez will likely have to split time with Gerardo Parra in right field. Charlie Blackmon has the starting job in center field and Ian Desmond has left field. The Rockies will also want to find space for Raimel Tapia and David Dahl.
