The Colorado Rockies have acquired 29-year old righty swinging 1B Cody Decker from the Royals for cash considerations. Decker played in 7 games in AAA-ball for the Royals this year and he was 5 for 18 (.278 avg, 1.214 OPS) with 4 runs scored, 3 homers and 5 RBIs. Decker has now played in 768 games in his first 8 years in the minors and he is 686 of 2,584 (.265 avg, .874 OPS) with 407 runs scored, 159 homers, 509 RBIs and 5 stolen bases. Decker’s only Major League experience to this point in his career came last year when he played in 8 games for the Padres in which he was 0 for 11 (.000 avg, .000 OPS) with 1 RBI and 5 whiffs. He will start out in AAA-ball for the Rockies.
