Atkins to be non-tendered by Rockies

Dec 12, 2009, 11:53 AM EDT

As expected, the Rockies will non-tender third baseman Garrett Atkins on Saturday.



Atkins, who turns 30 today (Happy
Birthday, Garrett!), batted .226/.308/.342 with nine home runs and 48
RBI last season, losing his hold on the starting third base job to Ian
Stewart by June.




Atkins was featured in my “Non-tender tango” series two weeks ago, and my early suspicion is that the Orioles would be a good fit.

    On a one year deal, fine, but they better not block Josh Bell with some scrub like that.
