Colorado Rockies: What they should be looking for at the trade deadline
Where to begin with Mike Dunn. His 2018 isn’t going too well with his 9.00 ERA. Though that doesn’t mean he can’t get it down and he can’t make a comeback in the second half.
The best team for him to go to would also be the Cleveland Indians in a package deal with Oberg. Most likely relievers that are struggling like Mike Dunn is need a change in location.

Pat Valaika would be the perfect trading chip for any team that isn’t looking for pitchers. Valaika is young and versatile and being that is he’s a utility player. This is perfect for teams that are looking for someone who can play anywhere or a team that wants to mold him into a specific position player.
He’s got tons of potential and when he’s given a shot, teams won’t regret saying yes. The teams that could use a guy like Pat Valaika would be the Marlins, A’s, and Padres.
This would be a serious big if. The Colorado Rockies just signed Bryan Shaw this year and it’s been more than disastrous. He’s most definitely not meeting the standards of the team and are costing the Rockies wins.
Bud Black shows no signs of stopping from calling him from the bullpen so the best way to stop that bleeding is to just get rid of it all together. This trade chip is merely for Rockies fans and would be a far stretch, but perhaps a needed move to be made.

Bryan Shaw could most likely go to the Nationals or the Marlins in order to solidify those trades. Also, he was previously with Cleveland and was successful there as well.
