Colorado Rockies manager Jim Tracy will meet with Bill Geivett, the director of major league operations, Friday for a discussion regarding Tracy's job status

Colorado Rockies manager Jim Tracy will meet with Bill Geivett, Rockies director of major league operations, Friday for a discussion that will play a large role in deciding whether Tracy will return as manager in 2013, via Troy E. Renck of The Denver Post.

"My understanding is that we will sit down and have a conversation," Tracy said. "The gratification is seeing this through and getting back to the mountain, where we were just a couple of years go. That's what drives us."

Tracy would like to return as Rockies manager in 2013 and help turn things around in Colorado, but ultimately it will be Geivett's endorsement to Rockies owner Dick Monfort whether Tracy returns or not.

If Tracy is relieved of his duties (or retained), the Rockies will pay him $1.4 million in 2013. The Rockies' 2012 campaign has been the franchise's worst season in terms of winning percentage.
