Rockies purchased the contract of LHP Sam Howard from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Howard, 24, held a 3.32 ERA and 104/43 K/BB ratio across 127 1/3 innings between Double- and Triple-A this season. He's now protected from the Rule 5 Draft.

MLB.com's Jon Morosi reports that Tyler Chatwood "is drawing widespread interest."

One source told Morosi that it's "probable" the right-hander nets a multi-year contract this offseason. Chatwood, who turns 28 next month, holds a pedestrian 4.31 ERA in his career, but teams are intrigued by what he could do away from Coors Field. He posted a 3.49 ERA and .695 opponents' OPS away from the thin Denver air in 2017. The Orioles and Rangers are two clubs known to have interest in Chatwood, but it sounds like there are probably a bunch more that have checked in with his agent.

MLB.com's Jon Morosi reports that the Phillies are among the teams interested in Jake McGee.

As Morosi points out, McGee and new Phillies skipper Gabe Kapler were actually teammates with the Rays in 2010. The hard-throwing left-hander struggled in 2016 in his first season with the Rockies but bounced back with a nice showing in 2017, putting up a 3.61 ERA and 58/16 K/BB ratio over 57 1/3 innings while notching three saves.

RHP Greg Holland rejected the Rockies' one-year, $17.4 million qualifying offer.

Holland had already previously declined his $15 million player option and is now officially a free agent after turning down his qualifying offer. He really struggled in the second half for the Rockies in 2017 but will get a multi-year contract this winter, anyway.

According to Jon Morosi of MLB Network, the Orioles are showing interest in free agent starter Tyler Chatwood.

Chatwood might not be the sexiest name on this free agent market, but when you consider park factors (specifically the Coors Field effect) his numbers rank right up there with some of the available second-tier starters. The 27-year-old right-hander is also younger than many of the other guys out there. Baltimore badly needs rotation help and will probably be looking for it on a variety of fronts.
Nov 15 - 3:14 PM

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Astros are among the teams with interest in free agent catcher Jonathan Lucroy.

A deal with Lucroy would likely mean pushing Brian McCann and Evan Gattis into a platoon role at DH. Lucroy has been a better defensive catcher than both of them, but he actually struggled a bit in that department this past season and the 31-year-old also batted just .265 with a .716 OPS and only six home runs over 123 total games between the Rangers and Rockies. The 2017 World Series champs will probably be looking for a discount here.
Nov 15 - 9:01 AM

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that none of the nine players extended one-year, $17.4 million qualifying offers will accept it.

Neil Walker and Jeremy Hellickson accepted the qualifying offer last offseason, but it's not a surprise this time around that they've all opted to turn it down. All nine players -- Eric Hosmer, Mike Moustakas, Lorenzo Cain, Jake Arrieta, Alex Cobb, Wade Davis, Greg Holland, Lance Lynn and Carlos Santana -- should be able to easily find multi-year contracts on the open market this winter.
Nov 13 - 8:55 AM

Rockies released RHP Thad Weber.

The 33-year-old hurler hasn't seen time in the big leagues since the 2013 season. He spent his 2017 campaign at Triple-A Albuquerque where he posted a miserable 7.85 ERA, 1.87 WHIP and 39/11 K/BB ratio across 55 innings. It's unclear if he plans on continuing his pitching career.
Nov 11 - 8:42 AM

Nolan Arenado was crowned as the Platinum Glove Award winner for the National League.

He wins the prize as the best of the National League Gold Glove Award recipients. This is his first Platinum Glove. The third baseman won his fifth Gold Glove this year. Arenado is a rare player combining elite offensive and defensive talents. He hit .309/.373/.586 with 37 home runs and 130 RBI this year.
Nov 10 - 11:16 PM

FanRag Sports reporter Jon Heyman believes that the Rockies would like to bring Greg Holland back on a long-term deal.

Long-term deal is obviously subjective, and as a a 31-year-old pitcher who has a history with injuries, anything over a year offers risk. Heyman reports that the Rockies feel that keeping Holland keeps the Colorado bullpen deep, and for most of the year, the reliever was highly effective in that closer's spot. Heyman also reports that the Cardinals and Cubs have shown interest in Holland, so Colorado will have competition in signing the closer. Because he received the qualifying offer, any team that signs Holland will be subject to giving up a draft pick this summer.

Nolan Arenado was named the Gold Glove Award winner at third base in the National League.

Arenado now has five Gold Glove Awards in five major league seasons and he should get another helping of MVP votes this year, though he was not named one of the three finalists. The full list of 2017 Gold Glove winners in the National League: Paul Goldschmidt 1B, DJ LeMahieu 2B, Brandon Crawford SS, Nolan Arenado 3B, Marcell Ozuna LF, Ender Inciarte CF, Jason Heyward RF, Tucker Barnhart C, Zack Greinke P.
Nov 7 - 9:22 PM

Rockies extended a one-year, $17.4 million qualifying offer to RHP Greg Holland.

He's expected to decline the offer, as the closer is slated to get a multi-year contract from some team this winter. Holland struggled in the second half but overall had a nice first post-Tommy John season, holding a 3.61 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 70/26 K/BB ratio over 57 1/3 innings while recording a National League-leading 41 saves.
