The Rockies have acquired 30-year old righty swinging 3B Kevin Kouzmanoff from the A’s for either a player to be named later or cash. Kouzmanoff played in 46 games for the A’s this year and he was 30 for 136 (.221 avg, .615 OPS) with 13 runs scored, 4 homers and 17 RBIs. He will report to AAA for the Rockies for now but I think he will likely get called up when rosters expand on September 1st. Kouzmanoff has played in 61 games in AAA-ball this year too and he is 79 for 262 (.302 avg, .890 OPS) with 41 runs scored, 13 homers, 58 RBIs and 1 stolen base. Kouzmanoff has played in 645 games in his first six years in the majors and he is 608 for 2,380 (.255 avg, .721 OPS) with 254 runs scored, 82 homers, 345 RBIs and 6 stolen bases. Kouzmanoff has always hit better in the N.L., so he could be a huge asset going forward for the Rockies.
