Troy Renck of the Denver Post spoke Thursday to Rockies GM Dan O’Dowd, who confirmed that his team is waiting on word from free agent outfielder Michael Cuddyer about the three-year, $27 million offer that was presented last week. O’Dowd also told Renck that the offer would not be improved.

“It’s out of my hands, said the Colorado general manager. “It’s an agent-player decision.”

The Rockies have also courted Carlos Beltran, but ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick heard from a source that the club is “leaning more toward” Cuddyer, who is a few years younger and less of an injury risk.

Cuddyer, 32, batted .284/.346/.459 with 20 home runs and 70 RBI in 139 games for the Twins in 2011.

    Twins need right handed power but they won’t push Cuddy to sign since signing Willingham. Both with Mauer hitting between & Morneau after would be nice.

    Why would they?
