Colorado second basemen have hit just .240 with a .641 OPS that ranks 21st among MLB teams and Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that Dodgers utility man Jamey Carroll “is among the targets” the Rockies are pursuing.
According to Renck the Rockies would also like to improve the rotation, but may promote a starter from within and “have expressed interest in” the 37-year-old Carroll, who’s hit .300 with a .368 on-base percentage in 74 games this season and previously played for the Rockies in 2006 and 2007.
Carroll is making just $1.8 million, so even the cashed strapped Dodgers don’t need to move him, but with speculation that Rafael Furcal may play second base once he returns from the disabled list to leave rookie Dee Gordon at shortstop the infield would be crowded in Los Angeles.
