According to a report from Fox Sports' Jon Morosi, the San Francisco Giants and Boston Red Sox are out of the running for Michael Cuddyer, while the Colorado Rockies and "at least one other team" have a shot at signing the free agent outfielder.
CBS Sports' Jon Heyman says the Rockies' offer to Cuddyer was better than the offer from the Twins:
#rockies offer to cuddyer was more than the #twins losing bid of $25M for 3 yrs. cuddyer seeking to make $30M-plus.
If Heyman's report is accurate, the Rockies and Cuddyer may not be very far apart at this point. If they've already exceeded a $25 million offer, they may be close enough to what Cuddyer wants to make a compromise feasible.
