With the conclusion of a very successful Colorado Rockies season that ended on a sour note, the focus now turns to how the team can advance even further in next year’s postseason.
The 2018 season was one of the best for the Colorado Rockies in franchise history. However, there will be some holes that need to be filled heading into next year. Additionally, there are some areas on the team that can be improved.
In this article, let’s take a look at some of the positions that could see a new face manning them next season for the Rockies. We will look at some of the potential candidates to take over those spots and how that could affect the team.
Of course, we don’t know at the moment if DJ LeMahieu will be back at second base for the Rockies next season. An unrestricted free agent heading into next season, the Rockies seem to have plenty of options to replace him. However, he has also been one of the most impressive players for Colorado, offensively and defensively, since he came over to Colorado from the Chicago Cubs before the 2012 season.
That is a big question mark that must be answered … and one we will examine with possibilities in this piece.
