Rockies Willing To Offer 1-Year Deal To Grady Sizemore, Also Interested In LaTroy Hawkins

The Colorado Rockies are exploring a number of different options this offseason, outfielder Grady Sizemore among them. According to the Denver Post's Troy Renck, Colorado is "comfortable" offering a one-year deal to Sizemore:

Rockies’ general manager Dan O’Dowd said the club is comfortable making a one-year offer to outfielder Grady Sizemore after inspecting his medical records. The Rockies plan to get a better read on his health during the outfielder’s visits to the Steadman-Hawkins clinic in Vail. They wouldn’t require him to work out as I originally thought. Sizemore had his right knee scoped by Dr. Richard Steadman on Oct. 3 to promote healing of a bone bruise.

The 29-year-old outfielder is a career .269/.357/.473 hitter but has played in just 104 games over the last two seasons combined.

Renck also writes that the club is interested in free agent reliever LaTroy Hawkins, though they'd need to make room for him first. The Rockies are willing to trade closer Huston Street, who is owed $8 million next season, in order to do so.
