Despite Interest in Players, Rockies Make no Moves

The Colorado Rockies have decided against making any moves as the trade deadline passed at 2 PM MT on Wednesday.

With the Rockies recent struggles, teams were hoping that guys like RF Michael Cuddyer, LF Carlos Gonzalez and SS Troy Tulowitzki would be available. Despite many teams having interest in those guys, the Rockies had been repeatedly adament that they have no plans on moving any of them.

Even with the Rockies not moving their big bats, they did get plenty of interest in some of their pitchers. Before the Boston Red Sox made a move to pickup starting pitcher Jake Peavy, they had been trying to make a deal to nab Rockies' starter Jorge De La Rosa. Also gathering interest from teams were Rockies' relief pitchers Matt Belisle and Josh Outman. But despite teams looking for their services, they were not able to muster up enough to convince the Rockies to move them.

With no moves made, the Rockies find themselves now 51-57 and 7.5 games back of the division leading Dodgers. Though there's plenty of season left for the Rockies to make a push to get to the postseason, with the way the roster is performing the last month, they may as well be 170 games back.
