7/13/01–Traded Chone Figgins to the Anaheim Angels. Received Kimera Bartee.

Kimera Bartee finished his six-year MLB career with the Rockies in 2001. After his rookie season of 1996, in which he played in 110 games for the Tigers that went 53-109 under Buddy Bell (who was the Rockies manager in 2001), he never played in more than 57 games in a season. He went 0-for-15 with five punchouts with the Rockies. He’s now the Pirates first base coach under Clint Hurdle, who was the Rockies hitting coach when Bartee played for the team.

Figgins compiled a WAR of 22.2 as a speedy, super utility guy who could play a lot (148 or more games played in five seasons). One-time All-Star, ranked in MVP voting four times.

You can make the decision on whether it was a good trade or not.

7/25/01–Traded Neifi Perez to the Kansas City Royals. Received Jermaine Dye.

Neifi Perez was good defensive infielder for the Rockies when they had him. From 1998 through 2000, he played in 157 games once and all 162 in the two other seasons. His OPS+ wasn’t good (64) and it wasn’t good after. But he wasn’t as good defensively either.

He played his last MLB game in 2007.
