The Rockies have released 31-year old outfielder Brad Hawpe. Hawpe played in 88 games for the Rockies this year and he was 66 of 259 (.255 avg, .776 OPS) with 24 runs scored, 7 homers, 37 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. He played in 816 games in his 7 years with the Rockies and he was 749 of 2,673 (.280 avg, .866 OPS) with 372 runs scored, 118 homers, 464 RBIs and 13 stolen bases. Hawpe worked hard for the Rockies but he just didn’t seem to have it anymore.
UPDATE: The Rockies have designated Hawpe for assignment instead of releasing him outright. That gives them 10 days to trade or release him.
