What will the Colorado Rockies do with all of their backup outfielders?

The Rockies have four quality backup outfielders but they will only likely have room for two of them on the major league roster which could lead to a trade for pitching help. 28 year old righty Ryan Spilboroghs is a lock for one of the outfield spots based on his play last season for the Rockies. He played in 97 games last season and he was 79 for 264 (.299 avg, .848 OPS) with 40 runs scored, 11 homers and 51 RBIs. 28 year old lefty swinging Corey Sullivan likely will have the edge for the #5 outfield spot unless he’s traded. He played in 72 games last season for the Rockies and he was 40 for 140 (.286 avg, .722 OPS) with 19 runs scored, 2 homers and 14 RBIs. 26 year old righty swinging Jeff Baker didn’t have a good season last year but he can play the corner infield and outfield spots which should help him get some playing time. He played in 85 games last season for the Rockies and he was 32 for 144 (.222 avg, .643 OPS) with 17 runs scored, 4 homers and 12 RBIs. 25 year old lefty swinging Seth Smith is the Wild Card for the Rockies. He only played in 7 games during the regular season for the Rockies and he was 5 for 8 (.625 avg, 1.500 OPS) with 4 runs scored. Smith also came up big-time in the post season for the Rockies. He played in 6 games in the playoffs and World Series and he was 3 for 6 (.500 avg, 1.167 OPS) with 2 runs scored and 2 RBIs.
