Report: Rockies Receiving Interest In Clint Barmes

According to FoxSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal, the Colorado Rockies have received interest in Clint Barmes:

The Rockies again are drawing heavy interest in infielder Clint Barmes, but only figure to trade him or non-tender him if they’re unable to sign him to a multi-year deal.

Barmes has one year left of arbitration, but during the final month of the season it became clear that he would not be back with the team. While there was some discussion of bringing Barmes back, Rosenthal’s report appears to make that a bit more of a possibility.

However, the team should really look to trade Barmes. While his defense at second base is top-notch, his bat is a drag on the batting order, often ending things with a pop out. The Rockies should continue to monitor the Dan Uggla situation in Florida and attempt to get into a bidding war if it comes to that. If not, Eric Young Jr., Johnny Herrera and Chris Nelson will battle for the second baseman’s job during spring training.
