ESPN's Jim Bowden spoke with Rockies general manager Dan O'Dowd on Monday and was told that the Rockies have yet to make an offer to free agent outfielder Michael Cuddyer. Money could be the holdup:
Rockies GM Dan O'Dowd told me that they haven't even made an offer to...they like him and the fit...but $$ could be barrier
Cuddyer, who will turn 33 next year, has spent the last 11 seasons with the Minnesota Twins. He hit .284/.346/.459 with 20 home runs and 70 RBI last season.
If the money proves too much for Colorado, they could turn to Josh Willingham, who figures to be a cheaper outfield option.
