The Rockies tried to shop Ian Stewart at this week’s Winter Meetings in Dallas, Texas, at one point exchanging trade proposals with the Cubs.
But it sounds like the Colorado front office is now content with retaining the 26-year-old.
According to FOX Sports’ Tracy Ringolsby, Rockies GM Dan O’Dowd said Wednesday that he expects Stewart to be on the roster for 2012.
Stewart, a third baseman, posted a highly disappointing .156/.243/.221 batting line with zero home runs and just six RBI in 136 plate appearances this past year for the Rockies. But he has a .913 career OPS at the Triple-A level and slugged 25 home runs as a major leaguer in 2009. The Rox will continue to hope that he can finally reach his full potential.
