Will the Colorado Rockies make any moves at the upcoming Major League Baseball trade deadline? We asked some of our colleagues for their thoughts.
With a shortened 60-game season in 2020 and the campaign not launching until Thursday, July 23 (and Friday, July 24 for the Colorado Rockies), it made no sense for Major League Baseball to keep its traditional July 31 trade deadline.
So, in a season unlike any other, the trade deadline was moved back to August 31. With the Rockies finishing their slate on September 27, any new additions would have less than a month of the regular season to play with Colorado, in addition to any postseason games.

Entering Friday’s play at 12-6 and tied atop the National League West with the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Rockies are certainly (as of now) in a good position to qualify for the expanded postseason. But, as with all fanbases, Rockies fans want more than just another trip to Rocktober. The club’s first-ever NL West title is currently in play and a deep journey into the postseason is certainly better than just making an appearance.
So will the Rockies make a trade at the deadline? Is it worth it to make a move? Who might the Rockies target? These are some of the questions we asked inside the Rockies press box. We’ll give you two perspectives and then finish the article with our own thoughts.
