The Colorado Rockies are expected to tender contracts to all five of their arbitration-eligible players.

The Colorado Rockies are expected to tender contracts to five players on Friday's deadline, according to Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post.

Dexter Fowler is the big-name player, but Tyler Colvin, Jhoulys Chacin, Josh Outman and Jonathan Herrera make up the rest of the group.

All players eligible for arbitration need to have a contract tendered, or else they become eligible for free agency. The Rockies are expected to tender contracts to all five of their arbitration-eligible players.

Fowler is eligible for arbitration for a second time, and is expected to command the biggest contract out of the eligible players. Fowler made $2.35 million last season, and projected to earn between $4.5 million and $5 million next year.

There is still a possibility that Fowler is traded to a team searching for help in center field. Senior vice president of major league operations Bill Geivett told media earlier this week that the team is not actively shopping Fowler but will listen to trade proposals.
