  • Rockies use Winter Meetings to window shop
    Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich used the Winter Meetings to browse for the offensive impact the team needs, but there are plenty of shopping days before the 2019 season begins.
  • Rox shift 1B/2B search to short-term options
    The Rockies' most-rumored trade targets -- Carlos Santana and Edwin Encarnacion -- were traded for each other Thursday near the end of the Winter Meetings. However, the Rockies already had begun a pivot toward free agency in their search for offense and to solidify the right side of the infield.
  • Will Rockies move Blackmon out of center?
    It's not clear if shifting center fielder Charlie Blackmon is an idea whose time has come, but it's been bandied about for the better part of a year.
  • Magadan brings fresh eye as Rox hitting coach
    Dave Magadan, hired Tuesday night as the Rockies' new hitting coach, brings a long career with notable success. Just as importantly, he represents new blood. Magadan, 56, who served as the D-backs' hitting coach the last three seasons and has held the job with the Padres, Red Sox and Rangers, will replace Duane Espy, who was not retained after holding the job the last two years.
  • Montgomery honored among Scouts of the Year
    Each year at the Winter Meetings, the scouting industry gathers to celebrate some of their own at the Scout of the Year reception. The fact the recipients are chosen by their peers, scouts singling out other scouts, makes the honor even more special.
  • Bridich: Rox can pay Nolan, 'grow responsibly'
    Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich told MLB Network on Monday that the club could pay a contract north of $200 million to third baseman Nolan Arenado and still afford to field a competitive club.
  • Three Rockies make AFL's Top Prospects team

  • Every team's current franchise icon
    Today, we look at the franchise icons for each team -- the guy who, if he were traded, would break the hearts of the local fans. Some of them, to be fair, stretch the definition of "icon"; you'll notice that more frequently with clubs that are in the midst of a rebuild.
  • Bettis focused after two difficult seasons
    After a year of illness, followed by a year of weirdness, right-handed pitcher Chad Bettis is working on a return to a key role in the Rockies' starting rotation.
  • Each team's best 1st-rounder of the past decade
    The release of the 2019 Draft Top 50 list had the MLB Pipeline staff thinking about Drafts in years past. Teams always want to get that first pick right and there have been some real home runs hit in the first round.
  • Arenado, Story among 7 tendered contracts
    The Rockies tendered contract offers to all seven of their arbitration-eligible players -- third baseman Nolan Arenado, shortstop Trevor Story, catcher Tony Wolters, left-handed relief pitcher Chris Rusin (who avoided arbitration Thursday with a one-year, $1,687,500 contract), right-handed starting pitchers Chad Bettis and Jon Gray, and left-handed starting pitcher Tyler Anderson.
  • These are the top 50 prospects for the '19 Draft
    The crop of talent for the 2019 Draft appears to be one of the most imbalanced in recent memory. Quality position prospects abound all over the diamond, while question marks surround the best pitchers available.
  • Which division is the most interesting right now?
    The Hot Stove is on high in the NL East, which now has four teams that clearly aim to compete for a postseason berth in 2019 (sorry, Marlins fans). That puts it atop this list of the most interesting divisions, which takes into account offseason activity and likely competitiveness next season.
  • These top prospects could draw trade interest
    Which prospects are realistic candidates to be traded this offseason? Here is a look at one player from each organization.
  • Rusin avoids arbitration with 1-year deal
    Left-handed relief pitcher Chris Rusin and the Rockies have reached a one-year, $1,687,500 contract to avoid arbitration, the club announced Thursday. MLB Network insider Jon Heyman first reported the dollar amount.
  • Daza among top performers in winter leagues
    Some MLB Pipeline top prospects such as Fernando Tatis Jr. and Eloy Jimenez are currently in action, as are plenty of other notable players who either are making up for lost time or getting in additional work ahead of the 2019 season.
  • To land big fish, Rox must be willing to sacrifice
    The Rockies can envision Carlos Santana providing big-time offense production at first base. Trades for catcher J.T. Realmuto or Noah Syndergaard also are attractive ideas, but it's all talk until Colorado answers what it's willing to give up.
  • Desmond eyes more production in 2019
    Ian Desmond spent the 2018 season hanging onto the number that mattered -- the one in the Rockies' win column. Many of the other numbers weren't kind to him.
  • Here's how Rockies could land Syndergaard
    The Rockies have been mentioned as a team that could land Mets standout right-handed pitcher Noah Syndergaard. And while it isn't clear that the Mets -- hoping to restructure their roster but also hoping to contend -- would part with Syndergaard, the idea of Colorado exploring a deal is not far-fetched.
