According to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe, the Rockies have yet to decide whether or not to make a qualifying offer to impending free agent Carlos Gonzalez.
Given the fact that the 32-year-old outfielder is coming off the worst season of his career, it's unlikely that the Rockies will risk him taking the $17.4 million offer. Gonzalez hit just .262/.339/.423 with 14 homers in 534 plate appearances for the Rockies this season. Oct 28 - 2:21 PM

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Carlos Gonzalez was helped after visiting a sleep doctor late in the season.

CarGo is on the record as crediting a return to his old grip on the bat with his late-season turnaround at the plate, but apparently getting more rest after not sleeping well early on in the year also helped. Gonzalez batted just .239/.308/.356 for the first five months of the season but closed with a .377/.484/.766 line and six home runs in September. The impending free agent will turn 32 next week and it will be interesting to track his market this winter.
