If you saw the Colorado Rockies bullpen on Saturday night, or most nights this season, you know why we are having these installments of articles about relievers that the Rockies could/should look at before the trade deadline.

The Colorado Rockies and their fans have seen numerous times of the bullpen imploding. However, none were worse than Bryan Shaw‘s bed wetting on Saturday (on national TV no less) when he allowed four hits, walked two, had a throwing error and a fielding error (on the same play no less), and allowing six runs in two-thirds of an inning. However, due to the errors, only one of the six runs were earned.

As we tweeted last night…

On top of down seasons from Mike Dunn, Chris Rusin, and Jake McGee and injuries to Rusin, Dunn, and Adam Ottavino, the Rockies bullpen has been…inconsistent to put it nicely.

So, in continuing with our series that we started on Friday. In our first edition, we discussed some options that the Rockies could look at from the American League East. In our second edition, from yesterday, we discussed some of the options that the Rockies could look at from the American League Central. Today, we will cover both the American League West and and National League East.

Without any further ado, let’s check out some of the options out in the AL West.
