We’re still waiting to see if there’s going to be an addition. The Rockies have made an offer of a Minor League contract to former Cy Young Award winner Eric Gagne, but there is still talking to do. The Dodgers are believed to be in the mix for Gagne. Rockies manager Jim Tracy is a believer in Gagne, who has battled shoulder and back issues in recent years.
Rockies possible target Derrick Turnbow is expected to announce a decision within 48 hours. Turnbow, who has battled injuries and a lack of command and hasn’t appeared in the Majors since 2008, had a recent workout that 20 of the 28 teams that were invited attended. He showed good enough velocity to have several teams want to negotiate further. The Rockies also have expressed interest in star closer Eric Gagne, who also is making a comeback.
