Colorado Rockies Rumors: Seth Smith Could Be On The Trading Block

With the addition of free agent Michael Cuddyer, the Colorado Rockies have some flexibility in the outfield. The signing could lead the Rockies to try to deal Seth Smith for pitching depth, writes Fox Sports' Jon Paul Morosi. Morosi goes over some of the best potential fits for Smith; among them are Cincinnati, St. Louis, Seattle, Oakland and Atlanta.

Cincinnati. The two teams have had trade dialogue this off-season, although it’s not clear how seriously they have discussed Smith. He would be an ideal platoon partner in left field with Chris Heisey.

Smith, who hit .284/.347/.483 with 15 home runs and 59 RBI in 2011, could earn up to $3 million in arbitration, according to Morosi.
