Troy Renck of the Denver Post answered some reader tweets this morning. Among the questions he answered regarded Felipe Paulino, Clint Barmes, and Jose Lopez among others. Let's take a look...
- Renck says that despite the fact that the Felipe Paulino-Clint Barmes trade hasn't worked out for the Rockies, they were going to non-tender Barmes anyway, so giving Paulino the chance regardless of what happened was worth a shot. Paulino was designated for assignment after last night's game.
- When asked about the Rockies return for Franklin Morales, Renck says that the Rockies have until mid-November to decide whether to take cash or a PTBNL from the Red Sox in exchange for the aforementioned Morales.
- Despite Jose Lopez not having that great of a year, Renck says there's still time for Jose to work out his kinks and that Jim Tracy still believes in him. Tracy wants Lopez to win the third-baseman job even though we're already almost two months in to the season.
- Lastly, Renck says he can confirm that Greg Reynolds will be called up for today's game and will be available in the bullpen.
