2011 MLB Hot Stove: Rockies Prefer Michael Cuddyer Over Calros Beltran

The Colorado Rockies, in search of a power-hitting outfielder, appear to prefer former Twins outfielder Michael Cuddyer than free agent Giants outfielder Carlos Beltran according to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick:

Cuddyer, who played first base, second base, right field and even pitched an inning in 2011, hit 20 homers with an impressive .284/.346/.459 slash. Turning 33 in March, Cuddyer has played all his 11 MLB season with the Minnesota Twins.

The soon-to-be 35-year-old Carlos Beltran finished the season with the San Francisco Giants, hitting 22 homers and a powerful .300/.385/.525 slash.
