Renck on Rockies: Trade Targets, Prospects, Ubaldo

No one provides more insight on all things Rockies than Troy Renck of the Denver Post. Let's check out the latest rumors  Renck on the Rockies from his weekly mailbag:

  • Look for the Rockies to add a veteran pitcher and at least one more big bat. They could pursue Carl Pavano, and chase after Wandy Rodriguez in the off-season. Twins' Michael Cuddyer, Mets' David Wright will be targeted via trade, but could cost a lot in terms of prospects. Cubs' Aramis Ramirez and  Oakland's Josh Willingham are possible free-agent signings.
  • Sources told Renck the Rockies were content on keeping Ubaldo Jimenez if the Indians had not included Drew Pomeranz and Alex White.
  • The Rockies top prospect Drew Pomeranz could be in the major-league rotation in May.
  • The Rockies have interest in re-signing Mark Ellis to a short-term deal. We mentioned earlier that Ellis could be the second baseman next season. 
  • The Rockies will give catching prospect Wilin Rosario a look in September. He's become a good defender at the backstop, but his bat has disappointed. Rosario is posting a .281 OBP in Double-A Tulsa.
