Andy Martino of the New York Daily News reports that there are "strong indications" that the Yankees will not be in on Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki.

To start with, rival officials who have spoken with the Rockies over the past two weeks are under the impression that Tulowitzki will not be traded. However, even putting that aside, Martino hears that the Yankees are not interested in taking on the remainder of his contract. While the 30-year-old is elite when healthy and a perfect replacement for Derek Jeter on paper, he's owed $114 million over the next six seasons. Things could change, but the Yankees appear likely to do something less splashy.
Nov 25 - 9:50 AM

Rockies signed RHP Jose Ortega to a minor league contract.

The 26-year-old hurler was bombed in his only appearance with the Tigers during the 2014 season, but posted a somewhat respectable 3.57 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 48/36 K/BB ratio over 58 frames at Triple-A Toledo. He'll provide bullpen depth in the minors for the Rockies.
Nov 22 - 1:38 PM

Rockies signed RHP Justin Miller to a minor league contract.

The 27-year-old hurler cracked the big leagues for the first time in 2014, posting a 5.11 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 5/2 K/BB ratio over 12 1/3 innings with the Tigers. He'll function as organizational bullpen depth in Colorado.
Nov 22 - 1:36 PM

Rockies signed RHP Brett Marshall to a minor league contract.

The 24-year-old right-hander was abysmal at Triple-A Louisville during the 2014 season, posting a 1-10 record, 6.53 ERA, 1.82 WHIP and 59/51 K/BB ratio over 70 1/3 innings. He's nothing more than organizational depth at this point.
Nov 22 - 1:34 PM

Rockies signed LHP Aaron Laffey to a minor league contract.

The 29-year-old hurler spent the 2014 season toiling away at Triple-A Syracuse in the Nationals organization, posting a 3.67 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 91/37 K/BB ratio over 147 innings. Given the current state of the Rockies starting rotation, he should be able to compete for a spot at the back end of the rotation in spring training.
Nov 22 - 1:31 PM

Rockies signed LHP John Lannan to a minor league contract.

The 30-year-old southpaw posted a 6.75 ERA over 56 innings of work at Triple-A Las Vegas in 2014. Given the Rockies struggles both in the rotation and the bullpen, it would be surprising to see him not get a shot at some point during the 2015 season.
Nov 22 - 1:29 PM

Rockies re-signed RHP Leuris Gomez to a minor league contract.

The 28-year-old hurler has spent his entire six-year minor league career in the Rockies organization. He spent the majority of the 2014 campaign at Triple-A Colorado Springs where he compiled a 4.47 ERA, 1.64 WHIP and 66/33 K/BB ratio over 54 1/3 innings.
Nov 22 - 9:42 AM

Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports that the Rockies are interested in re-signing Brett Anderson.

They declined his $12 million option for 2015 but would be willing to bring him back at a lesser rate. Anderson has plenty of upside when healthy, but he simply hasn't been able to take the mound regularly, making just 19 starts over the last three seasons. The Royals and Astros have also expressed interest in the lefty.
Nov 21 - 2:53 PM

Colorado Rockies purchased the contract of Tyler Anderson from Double-A Tulsa.

Anderson's dealt with a variety of arm injuries in his career. When healthy, he's shown the ability to put up numbers in the minors. He put up a 1.98 ERA in 118+ innings at Double-A.
Nov 20 - 4:31 PM

Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle reports that the Astros have checked in on Brett Anderson.

Drellich notes that Anderson is a Houston native and fits the Astros' desire for a high-upside free agent starter who should come cheap. The Rockies declined a $12 million option on the 26-year-old left-hander after he made just eight starts in 2014 due to yet another string of injuries. Anderson owns a 3.73 ERA and 1.29 WHIP in 494 career major league innings.
Nov 18 - 4:10 PM

Rockies acquired RHP Shane Carle from the Pirates for RHP Rob Scahill.

Carle, 23, was a tenth round pick of the Pirates in 2013. He had a 3.67 ERA and 83/22 K/BB ratio in 137 1/3 innings over 23 starts and four relief appearances this season between Class A West Virginia and High-A Bradenton.
Nov 11 - 3:40 PM

Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star hears that the Royals are expected to meet with the representatives for Brett Anderson this week.

Anderson became a free agent this month after the Rockies bought out his $12 million option for 2015 for $1.5 million. The injury-plagued southpaw had a 2.91 ERA across eight starts this season and could be an interesting gamble for someone.
Nov 11 - 12:59 PM

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York hears from sources briefed on the matter that a potential trade between the Mets and Rockies involving Troy Tulowitzki is "not happening."

There are a number of factors which understandably give them pause, including his health, the $100-plus million remaining on his contract, and the number of elite prospects they would have to give up in a deal. The Mets aren't enthused about the shortstop options in free agency, so they are expected to explore the trade market to find a solution. Rubin lists the Diamondbacks, Mariners, White Sox, and Cubs among the more realistic trade partners.
Nov 11 - 10:33 AM

Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports that the Mets have yet to talk to the Rockies about a trade for Troy Tulowitzki.

ESPN's Buster Olney has confirmed Saunders' report, which contradicts an earlier report from Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports. The Mets have been mentioned often as a potential landing spot for Tulo, and although it's possible they've had internal talks about him, it doesn't appear the two teams have discussed a deal yet. The Rockies are expected to listen to offers for Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez this winter.
Nov 10 - 7:55 PM

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that the Mets have talked to the Rockies about Troy Tulowitzki.

Passan adds, however, that the Mets "fear they can't afford" the Rockies' asking price -- likely multiple top prospects. FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported last week that Colorado's front office finally has its "eyes and ears" open to a trade involving Tulo or outfielder Carlos Gonzalez, but they're both coming off injury-plagued seasons. It's not a certainty that either player is moved this winter.
