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.
Mariners asked Rockies about Michael Cuddyer awhile back, but Colorado does not plan to move him.—

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.
