The Colorado Rockies will likely just be doing minor tinkering this winter

The Rockies have 11 potential free agents but they will only likely think about bringing back Rafael Betancourt. With the state of the free agent field the Rockies should just pick up Betancourt’s option instead of buying him out and trying to sign him to a cheaper deal. Yorvit Torrealba and Joe Beimel are the only other two of the free agents that I could see them bringing back. Jose Contreras, Josh Fogg, Adam Eaton, Jason Marquis, Matt Herges, Juan Rincon, Alan Embree and Jason Giambi will all likely be looking for new jobs in 2010. The Rockies will be looking for a veteran catcher to back up Chris Iannetta this season with possible names being Henry Blanco, Ramon Castro, Jason LaRue, Jose Molina, Mike Redmond and Gregg Zaun. The Rockies could also use a legit backup middle infielder and guys like Jamey Carroll, Alex Cora, Craig Counsell, Jerry Hairston, Bobby Crosby, Adam Everett and defensive wizard John McDonald will all be considered for the job. The Rockies will likely look for some affordable help from the right side of the bullpen with guys like Danys Baez, Kiko Calero, Brendan Donnelly, Guillermo Mota, Chan Ho Park, David Weathers and Russ Springer. From the lefty side of the bullpen the Rockies will likely look at Scott Eyre, Ron Mahay, Will Ohman, Brian Shouse and Jamie Walker. The Rockies have some work to do this winter but don’t expect too many major changes as they like their team going forward.
