The Colorado Rockies have made have been one of the more active teams this offseason as the free agent and trade markets have been surprisingly stagnant. However, the Rockies and many other teams still need to address some areas.
The Rockies have made a couple moves in the offseason thus far. They have signed Bryan Shaw, a right-handed reliever formerly of the Cleveland Indians. They also brought catcher Chris Iannetta back to the organization after spending the 2017 season with the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Rockies have also re-signed left hander Jake McGee, who was a key piece in the Rockies bullpen that was vastly improved in 2017.
There are still moves the Rockies need to make despite the three signings. I will be listing potential free agents the Rockies should target based upon their needs at certain positions.
It’s easy to say that second base, shortstop, third base, and center field are all but taken care of with DJ LeMahieu, Trevor Story, Nolan Arenado, and Charlie Blackmon occupying those places on the diamond. The positions that the Rockies should look to strengthen are the starting rotation, bullpen, first base and the outfield. I will be looking at free agents that could bolster those positions.
