Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times hears the Dodgers are expected to announce their signing of Brett Anderson on Monday.

The one-year, $10 million deal was reported nearly two weeks ago, but the team waited to announce the deal until Anderson passed a physical and they were able to consult with medical specialists. The 26-year-old makes for a nice one-year gamble, as he's been good when healthy. Anderson had a 2.91 ERA over eight starts with the Rockies this past season.
Dec 27 - 4:57 PM

Rockies signed OF Roger Bernadina to a minor league contract.

Bernadina batted just .167/.304/.258 in 80 plate appearances this season between the Reds and Dodgers and for his career he's hit just .236/.307/.354. The 30-year-old is doubtful to have a significant impact for the Rockies, who have a ton of outfield depth.
Dec 24 - 5:56 PM

Carlos Gonzalez (knee) announced Wednesday that he has been cleared to begin hitting.

Gonzalez is coming off surgery in August to repair the patella tendon in his left knee, which had bothered him dating back to 2013. The 29-year-old could be a little behind at the start of spring training, but the hope is that he'll be ready for Opening Day.

According to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, the Yankees have checked in with the Rockies on Troy Tulowitzki.

Heyman reported late last week that the Mets and Rockies had been "quietly discussing" the parameters of a Tulowitzki trade, but the two sides have not been able to find a match. And while the Yankees also have a big hole at shortstop, they probably don't possess the kind of elite-level prospects that Colorado would want in a return package. Heyman writes Monday that it "remains unclear how committed the Rockies-owning Monfort brothers are to trading the beloved Tulo."

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Mets and Rockies "have been quietly discussing" a potential Troy Tulowitzki trade for weeks.

He adds that pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard "is said to be the centerpiece of discussions" of the package that would head to the Rockies. However, FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal says the two teams have talked all offseason but no traction has been gained. A source told him he thinks the chances of the two sides completing a deal are "5-10 percent." In other words, nothing has really changed here.

Rockies signed C Audry Perez to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Perez appeared in one game this past season for the Cardinals. The 25-year-old catcher has a troubling .293 career on-base percentage in the minor leagues and probably won't see much action in Colorado.
Dec 18 - 3:06 PM

Rockies acquired OF Noel Cuevas from the Dodgers to complete the Juan Nicasio trade.

Nicasio was dealt to Los Angeles in late November for a player to be named later. Cuevas is that player. The 23-year-old former 21st-round pick batted just .231/.285/.351 in 131 games this past season at Double-A Chattanooga. He's not much of a prospect.
Dec 16 - 5:06 PM

Rockies signed INF Daniel Descalso to a two-year, $3.6 million contract.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick passed along the contract terms. Descalso was non-tendered by the Cardinals earlier this month after batting just .244/.333/.311 over 104 games this past season, but he's capable of playing all over the infield. He'll essentially replace Josh Rutledge in a utility role.
Dec 16 - 2:10 PM

ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the Dodgers have signed left-hander Brett Anderson to a one-year, $10 million contract.

Anderson could make an additional $4 million with incentives. It's hard to imagine anyone else came close to this offer given the southpaw's injury history, but the Dodgers can afford to take risks. Anderson was limited to just eight starts this past season and required surgery in August to repair a bulging disk in his lower back, but he doesn't turn 27 until February. There's some upside if he somehow manages to stay off the disabled list. Of course, we say that every year.
Dec 15 - 5:19 PM

LaTroy Hawkins revealed in an interview on MLB Network Friday that the 2015 season will be his final one.

It's no surprise, of course, as Hawkins will turn 42 later this month and 2015 is the final year on his contract. The veteran reliever doesn't miss bats anymore but has remained an effective reliever, this past season posting a 3.31 ERA and 1.20 WHIP for the Rockies. He'll enter the 2015 campaign as the team's closer.
Dec 12 - 10:41 AM

According to Juan C. Rodriguez of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, the Marlins are not "confident of reaching a deal" for Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau.

MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reported Wednesday night that the Marlins were in "hot pursuit" of Morneau, but it seems that talks have cooled. Morneau batted .319/.364/.496 with 17 home runs and 82 RBI this past season for the Rockies and is only owed $6.75 million in 2015, so the Colorado front office probably has a lofty asking price.
Dec 11 - 1:47 PM

Braves selected RHP Daniel Winkler from the Rockies in the Rule 5 draft.

Winkler was the best pitching prospect available in today's draft, with the obvious caveat that he underwent Tommy John surgery in June. The Rockies still should have protected him. The Braves can stash him on the DL and let him rehab in the minors, meaning they won't have to add him to the roster until August or September. He's a nice pickup for Atlanta.
Dec 11 - 1:12 PM

Rockies acquired RHP Jairo Diaz from the Angels for INF Josh Rutledge.

The Rockies got themselves a really nice reliever here for Rutledge. Diaz had a 2.20 ERA and a 48/10 K/BB ratio in 32 2/3 innings in Double-A last season before coming up in September and allowing two runs in 5 2/3 innings for the Angels. With his high-90s fastball and slider, he could be a long-term closer for Colorado.
Dec 11 - 1:20 AM

The Marlins "appear to be in hot pursuit" of Justin Morneau, according to Joe Frisaro of MLB.com.

The Rockies signed Morneau on the cheap prior to the 2014 season and watched as he won the National League batting title, hitting .319/.364/.496 with 17 home runs and 82 RBI. He's signed for $6.75 million next year, so any offer would have to be worth the Rockies' while. If Morneau is moved, the Rox could slide Wilin Rosario into his spot at first base.
Dec 10 - 11:15 PM

A source tells Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports that the Rockies are getting "massive" interest in Corey Dickerson.

Rosenthal also notes that the Rockies would need to be overwhelmed to move him. And rightfully so after Dickerson batted .312/.364/.567 with 24 home runs this past season. The Rox do have a glut of outfielders, though, so it wouldn't be a shock to see them move one before spring.
