Players from each non-contender that the Colorado Rockies should look at
The Baltimore Orioles
The Baltimore Orioles are the worst team in baseball by record. They are on pace for a 48-114 record, which would be one of the worst seasons of all time.
As a result of that and being in the same division as the Red Sox and Yankees, they are already behind the Yankees in the division by a mind boggling 21.5 games and they are 18.5 back in the Wild Card hunt.
They have a lot of players who are slated to be free agents at the end of the season so they, perhaps, will be the biggest seller of all of these teams.
In my opinion, the Rockies biggest target should be Adam Jones. He is one of the many impending free agents that the Orioles have. He has not played as well this season but he, like most players, would probably like to be on a winner. However, since he has 10-and-5 rights (a minimum of 10 years in the league and at least five of those seasons with the same team), he has a no-trade clause.
This season, the Orioles center fielder has 9 home runs and 26 RBI with a .278/.297/.458 slash line and a 104 OPS+. He is on pace for 186 hits, 42 doubles, 27 home runs, and 77 RBI.
The 4-time Gold Glove Award winner has regressed defensively in the past few years but with playing a corner outfield position for the Rockies (because the Rockies wouldn’t, or at least shouldn’t, displace Charlie Blackmon for Jones), he could fare better defensively, offensively, and make a trip to the postseason.
Other option that the Rockies could consider are Orioles closer Brad Brach, former closer Zach Britton (who has been injured all season but is due to come of the DL early this month), Kevin Gausman, Dylan Bundy, Andrew Cashner, or Alex Cobb.
