Rockies Rumors: Guthrie, Scutaro, Betancourt, Hernandez, Nieves

Troy E. Renck and Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post have updates on several potentially available Colorado Rockies’ players, including right-hander Jeremy Guthrie, infielder Marco Scutaro, closer Rafael Betancourt, and catchers Ramon Hernandez and Wil Nieves:

Renck notes that Guthrie, who the Rockies acquired this off-season from the Baltimore Orioles, continues to damage his trade value with poor outing after poor outing. The 33-year-old has posted an ugly ERA and WHIP of 6.35 and 1.688 over his 90 2/3 innings of work.

Other than an "initial nibble" from the Toronto Blue Jays, Guthrie has received little trade interest this summer, according to Renck.

While Guthrie continues to struggle, there are several Rockies’ players that have garnered interest leading up to the deadline. The Detroit Tigers, Texas Rangers and Pittsburgh Pirates have all expressed interest in Marco Scutaro, while the Boston Red Sox and Atlanta Braves have checked in on Betancourt.

Both of Colorado’s backstops have received interest from contenders. The New York Mets and Washington Nationals have called the Rockies about Hernandez, while the Nats have also expressed interest in Nieves.
