The Rockies have been in plenty of contact with other teams for trades, according to Black.
"“…I do know that [Rockies general manager] Jeff [Bridich] and his guys and our organziation are working every day,” said Black. “I know that there are a lot of phone calls being made to other general managers and other presidents of baseball operations, as is the norm pretty much every offseason. Even though there might not be as much activity as a couple [other] clubs here recently, like the White Sox, the Rockies and other clubs are still doing their homework and making their calls.”"
Obviously, the Rockies will have to see improvement from their current players and get some outside help if the Rockies plan on contending in 2021, since they have been equivalent to a 71 win team in each of the last two seasons. There are a few things that Black says that they need to address this offseason.
"“First off, you have to look at the pitching as a priority,” said Black to media, including Rox Pile. “We feel pretty good about our starters, especially the top of the rotation guys … [German] Marquez, [Kyle] Freeland, [Jon] Gray, [Antonio] Senzatela. We’re probably looking for a little more depth to go with Chi Chi [Gonzalez] and [Ryan] Castellani and a rehabbing [Peter] Lambert so maybe a little starting pitching depth is something that we’re looking at.”"
