MLB Hot Stove 2011: Colorado Rockies Will Tender Ian Stewart, But Will Listen To Offers

Colorado Rockies third baseman Ian Stewart was a huge disappointment in 2011 due to injury and non-production. But the team has been expecting him to take that big leap over the last couple of years and he hasn't been able to do so. Still, the Rockies want to give Stewart another chance. They plan on tendering him a contract, reports Troy Renck of the Denver Post.

Stewart is a career .236/.323/.428 hitter in five seasons, but he was only able to play in 48 games in 2011, hitting .156/.243/.221.

Still, Renck reports that teams are acquiring about Stewartl the Rockies would do well to listen seriously to any offers they receive. Unfortunately, O'Dowd and the Rockies are too willing to give players extra chances when there is clearly little to be had from doing so.
