2011 MLB Trade Rumors: Colorado Rockies Meet Milton Bradley's Agents, According To Report

The Colorado Rockies have met with free agent outfielder Milton Bradley's agents, according to Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times. What exactly this means is unknown. The Rockies are pursuing Grady Sizemore as a candidate to play in left field, but Bradley could be an alternative should Sizemore want to stay in center field and sign elsewhere to do so.

Bradley, though, is well-known for his temper tantrums and recent off-field troubles. He would appear to be an odd player for the Rockies to pursue, given the nature of the club. This could have just been a meet-and-greet and nothing more.

Bradley played just 28 games for the Seattle Mariners before the team designated him for assignment and then ultimately released him once no team claimed him. He hit .218/.313/.356 in 2011 and was a -0.6 wins above replacement level (Fangraphs version) player. It would be in the best interest of the Rockies to move on and look at other options.
