Rockies acquired 1B Cody Decker from the Royals for cash considerations.

Decker was sporting a 1.214 OPS and three home runs through seven games this season with the Royals' Triple-A affiliate.

Decker should have an outside shot at cracking the Opening Day roster with Kansas City.

Decker, 26, is known for his power, as he hit 19 home runs in 359 at-bats between Double-A and Triple-A this past season.
