Rockies not interested in moving Michael Cuddyer

7 Comments

Coming off a franchise-worst 64-98 record, things aren’t looking all that promising for the Rockies in 2013, even with a healthy Troy Tulowitzki. One would think they would be open to moving certain pieces that could net them some pitching or prospects, but Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports hears that they are content to stand pat with a potential trade target.

This is the same team that traded right-handers Alex White and Alex Gillingham to the Astros for set-up man Wilton Lopez earlier this offseason, so maybe we shouldn’t be surprised by their approach.

Cuddyer, who turns 34 in March, batted .260/.317/.489 with 16 home runs, 58 RBI and an .806 OPS in 101 games last season and missed a good chunk of time during the second half with an oblique injury. He will make $10.5 million in each of the next two seasons.

Brian Dozier’s shot to center got stuck in the wall at Target Field

You don’t see this every day …

Twins second baseman Brian Dozier hit a blast to dead-center field in the first inning of Wednesday afternoon’s game against the Tigers and it neither cleared the fence, nor banged off the fence, nor dropped in front of it.

Instead, the ball found a comfortable home inside the wall …

This isn’t the first wall-sticker for Dozier. He put a ball in the bullpen fence in Washington during an exhibition game against the Nationals back in 2016.
