The Rockies are currently 17 games under the .500 mark and hovering just above the very bottom of the National League West, but don’t expect them to be sellers at this year’s July 31 trade deadline.
According to CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman, Rockies general manager Dan O’Dowd insisted Wednesday that outfielders Carlos Gonzalez and Michael Cuddyer will not be on the move this summer despite considerable interest from opposing teams.
“The Carlos Gonzalez thing is a joke. We’re not trading Carlos Gonzalez,” said O’Dowd. “I’ve had a ton of calls on Cuddyer. But I’m not trading him, either.”
CarGo is already one of the best players in baseball at age 26 and is under contract control through the 2017 season. And Cuddyer signed an affordable three-year, $31.5 million free agent deal just this past winter.
The Rox are hoping to compete within the next couple of years, and they want CarGo and Cuddyer to help.
