This weekend, there have been a few things regarding the Colorado Rockies and their division rivals in the news.
Speaking of the Dodgers outfield, Rosenthal also
on Sunday that the Dodgers are in talks with the Chicago White Sox that would send Pederson to Chicago. He also reports that other clubs “are in conversations” but those clubs are not known, at least as of yet.

Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post spoke to Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich after the Yankees signed the aforementioned Adam Ottavino. Saunders reports that the Rockies “kept in touch with him during the offseason but never offered him a contract.” Saunders texted Bridich asking him why no contract was extending to him and Bridich dodged the question by replying that the Rockies wish him the best besides when the Yankees face the Rockies (as they will in July). As Saunders surmised and I would concur with, the Rockies probably just don’t have enough money to go around, especially if they are going to seriously chase
for an extension/in free agency. As Bridich said at the Winter Meeting in December, “We need last year’s [free agent signings] to pitch better than they did in 2018. It’s not a lack of talent or a sudden inability to perform well. But they need to do a better job…The bottom line is that if Bryan [Shaw] and Jake [McGee] and Chris [Rusin] pitch to their abilities, we are most likely a very different sort of a bullpen…”
