The Colorado Rockies likely will only make minor tinkering at the trade deadline

The Colorado Rockies are tied for second place in the N.L. West with the Padres with a 39-38 (50.6) record, which has them 3 games behind the Diamondbacks.  The Rockies don’t have a lot of needs, they just need some guys to step up.  Josh Rutledge has been pretty awful so far this year, so the Rockies could look into dealing for a SS like Brendan Ryan (great glove man) or Yuniesky Betancourt (better bat than mitt).  Both Ryan and Betancourt are the kind of guys that would slide into backup roles when Troy Tulowitzki returns to action.  That being said, it would probably be smart of the Rockies to see what they have in Rutledge.  The Rockies could look to make a minor deal for a righty reliever like Joba Chamberlain (Yankees), Louis Coleman (Royals), Greg Burke (Mets) and Burke Badenhop (Brewers) before the trade deadline.  If the Rockies want to go big, they could try to make an improvement at 1B with Paul Konerko or Justin Morneau being the main targets.
