Rockies Could Try Carlos Gonzalez At First Base

Jan 29, 2016 8:05 AM

The Colorado Rockies don't plan to move Carlos Gonzalez from the outfield, but they may try him out at first base this spring.

"CarGo at first base is something we've talked about introducing a little bit this spring, but it's more of a potential long-term outlook," Walt Weiss said.

The Colorado Rockies are expected to part ways with Kyle Parker, who was their top pick in the 2010 Major League Baseball draft, according to sources.

Rockies Getting Calls About Surplus Outfielders

Jan 19, 2016 4:08 PM

The Colorado Rockies have a surplus of outfielders and are listening to offers as the offseason progresses.

"There have been clubs calling from the get-go," general manager Jeff Bridich said.

"The outfield market in general, one that's combining the free-agent market with the trade market, has been one that's been pretty slow moving. But teams have been checking in ever since free agency started. There hasn't been anything that's made us say, 'Yeah, that makes a lot of sense for us, short and long term.' And we feel like an addition like this can only help us. It's obviously a good thing."

Colorado's three-year, $27.5 million deal with Gerardo Parra is set to become official this week. He joins Carlos Gonzalez, Charlie Blackman, Corey Dickerson and Brandon Barnes in Colorado's outfield.
