MLB Hot Stove 2012: Colorado Rockies Remain Interested In Justin Turner

The Colorado Rockies went from being close to finishing a deal for Marco Scutaro from the Boston Red Sox to the deal being backed out upon by Boston in a matter of moments on Friday afternoon. What would have been a nice get for the Rockies now turns into the team looking at less-than-desirable options. However, the Rockies appear ready to continue the pursuit of New York Mets 2B Justin Turner, according to the Denver Post's Troy Renck.

As a starting second baseman, Turner might turn into a better option than those already competing for the job: Chris Nelson, Jonathan Herrera and D.J. LeMahieu. Turner hit .260/.334/.356 with four home runs in 2011 with the Mets.
