Andrew McCutchen could also be a fit for the Colorado Rockies
Andrew McCutchen is another free agent that could give the Colorado Rockies some much-needed offensive help.
McCutchen has been in the majors for a long time now, as he made his debut with the Pittsburgh Pirates all the way back in 2009.
McCutchen, like most players in the sport in their mid-to-late-30s, is not the player he once was (he won the 2013 NL MVP award) but for the last three seasons, he has been a serviceable player for the Philadelphia Phillies.
In 2021, McCutchen played in 144 games and he hit .222/.334/.444 with 27 homers, 80 RBI, and an OPS+ of 109. In his 13-year MLB career, he has not had an OPS+ below 100 in a single season.
When he is healthy (which he has been for his whole career with the exception of 2019), he will give you 20 homers and 80 RBI every season. The Rockies had three players close to that bill in 2021 and one of them (Trevor Story with 24 homers and 75 RBI in 2021) is likely leaving the team. The other two were Ryan McMahon and C.J. Cron.
Eddie Rosario is another possible fit for the Colorado Rockies outfield
Eddie Rosario split the season between Cleveland and Atlanta last year and, for Atlanta, he was the NLCS MVP for them. He could also help the Colorado Rockies.
In the regular season, Rosario played in 111 games and he hit .259/.305/.435 with an OPS+ of 98. He had 14 homers, 62 RBI, 19 doubles, and an rWAR of 1.1.
For the prior six seasons, Rosario was with the Minnesota Twins and he received MVP votes in both 2019 and 2020. In 2020, he played in 57 games and he had an OPS+ of 116 and in 2019, he had an OPS+ of 107. In 2019, he also had 32 homers, 28 doubles, and 109 RBI.
Before the lockout, MLB Trade Rumors predicted that he would get a two-year deal for $15 million and it stands to reason that he would still roughly get that once the lockout ends.
