The offseason is almost over. We’re less than two weeks away from the Colorado Rockies’ first Cactus League Spring Training game on February 23 and, with any additional major moves looking unlikely, it’s time to assess the Rockies’ depth at all nine positions as we gear up for the start of the 2019 season.
What have the Colorado Rockies done since the Boston Red Sox won it all on October 28 of last year? Their offseason was headlined by the signing of free agent 1B/2B Daniel Murphy, who will likely be the club’s opening day first baseman. Colorado also signed free agent 1B Mark Reynolds, OF Michael Saunders, P Chi Chi Gonzalez and P Alec Asher to minor league deals. The team released their full list of non-roster invitees to Spring Training on February 6.
So where does this leave the club depth-wise as we head into Spring Training? Let’s start with the outfield.
