With the Rockies in third place at 46-50 and Michael Cuddyer having a career-year at age 34 he’d seemingly be a prime trade candidate, but team owner Dick Monfort said there’s “not a chance” the outfielder will be moved.
“Right-handed corner bats are pretty important,” Monfort told Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post. “And put into the mix that he has major-league at bats, and he plays first base, too. So no, we won’t trade him.”
Cuddyer is signed for next season at $10.5 million, but his current .960 OPS is 100 points higher than the next-best mark of his 13-year career and 150 points higher than what he did last season in his first year with the Rockies.
