Rockies GM Jeff Bridich said Wednesday that he is not looking to trade Charlie Blackmon or Carlos Gonzalez this winter.
But he didn't exactly call them untouchable either: "Are we going to look to improve things in 2017 and add major league players to our process for 2017? The answer is yes," Bridich told MLB.com. "I'm hopeful that doesn't have to come at the expense of players like Carlos Gonzalez or Charlie Blackmon." Blackmon had a terrific 2016 season, slashing .324/.381/.552 with 29 home runs, 82 RBI, 17 stolen bases, and 111 runs scored in 143 games. He is due a raise in arbitration this winter from his 2016 salary of $3.5 million and remains under Colorado's control through 2018. CarGo will make $20 million in 2017, his final year under club control. Nov 10 - 10:54 AM
