Dexter Fowler is staying put for now.

Rockies Notes: 12/6

The Colorado Rockies were surprisingly active at this year's Winter Meetings in Nashville. The Rockies made a trade for a late inning reliever, signed Jeff Francis again, and added another arm via the Rule 5 Draft. More on these moves and rumors from the Winter Meetings in this edition of Rockies Notes. 

Francis' deal is still pending a physical.

Rockies to Re-Sign Jeff Francis

The Colorado Rockies have agreed in principle to a one-year, Major League contract with left-handed starting pitcher Jeff Francis, according to ESPN.com’s Jerry Crasnick. The deal will become official once Francis passes a physical.

The Rox believe Lopez can pitch well in Colorado.

Rockies trade for Astros Wilton Lopez

On day two of the Winter Meetings the Colorado Rockies made a trade with the Houston Astros to acquire right-handed reliever Wilton Lopez. The Rockies sent starter Alex White and minor leaguer Alex Gillingham to Houston and will also receive a player to be named later or cash considerations. 

CarGo wasn't close to the best LF in the NL.

Rockies Notes: 11/6

The Colorado Rockies have completed interviews for the open manager position as the brass interviewed Diamondbacks third-base coach Matt Williams on Monday. Williams was the last of four candidates to interview. That group also includes veteran Jason Giambi, former Rockies shortstop Walt Weiss, and bench coach Tom Runnells. 

Who will manage Tulo in 2013?

Rockies Notes: 10/23

Today is the final day before the World Series and the Rockies still don't have a manager, which means that the club likely won't name a manager until after the World Series unless they want to feel the wrath of baseball's commissioner. They will be interviewing candidates outside the organization, however, and they have a director of pitching operations. So, there's that. 

Giambi hasn't officially retired as a player yet.

Rox will interview Giambi in manager search

The Colorado Rockies are one of only two teams currently searching for their next manager, the Boston Red Sox are the other. The Rockies are in no hurry to hire a manager as they interviewed bench coach Tom Runnells for two full days this week. The club will conclude its in-house interviews with Jason Giambi (yes, that Jason Giambi) before going outside the organization for possible candidates.

Chacin had a disappointing 2012, but will return.

Monday Quarterbacking: Arbitration Eligibles

The Colorado Rockies love quarterbacks. It's no secret; the club has drafted four of them (Todd Helton, Seth Smith, Kyle Parker, and Russell Wilson). So, from now on the Monday column will be called Monday Quarterbacking. Get used to it. Oh, and congratulations to Russell Wilson for beating the New England Patriots on Sunday. I promise that's the last mention of football here. 

Fowler is due for a big pay day soon.

Rockies on the Trade Block

As the Major League regular season winds down, it becomes time for teams to start preparing for the offseason and decide what the team is going to look like for next year. The Colorado Rockies front office could have started preparing months ago, but sadly the only deadline deal made sent Marco Scutaro to the Giants for not much in return. 

CarGo and Fowler should recover in time for 2013.

Rox win, but Injuries Mount

The Colorado Rockies snapped a nine-game losing streak Monday night topping the Arizona Diamondbacks 4-2 at Coors Field. Tyler Chatwood, the winning pitcher for the Rockies, started and was just an out shy of a quality start. Rafael Betancourt saved the game, his 30th of the year. 

Rosario only has value as a catcher.

Rockies Notes: Giant Sweep

The Colorado Rockies return to Coors Field tonight for the beginning of the last home stand of the season and a matchup with the also underachieving Arizona Diamondbacks. The Rockies limped home after another awful road trip. The Rockies beat the San Diego Padres last Friday and continued to lose six games in a row, including all four in San Francisco.

De La Rosa won 16 games for COL in 2009.

De La Rosa Returns

Jorge De La Rosa, 31, hasn’t pitched in the majors since May 24, 2011 when he suffered an elbow injury that required Tommy John surgery. This afternoon he returns to face the San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park. De La Rosa has a player option for 2013 worth $11M and is 39-26 with a 4.38 ERA in four seasons with Colorado.

Rosario is the youngest Rockies ever to SLG .500.

Rockies Catching Conundrum

The Colorado Rockies haven't had much go according to plan this season. One pleasant surprise this year has been the play of rookie catcher Wilin Rosario, who most thought would spell free agent acquisition Ramon Hernandez a few times a week while acclimating himself to the Majors.
