Dodgers: 2019 NL West Outlook: Colorado Rockies
1 of 4
In the next installment of “Dodgers: 2019 NL West Outlooks” I’ll look into the Colorado Rockies. The Rockies are the Dodgers closest competition in the NL West as things stand heading into Spring Training. While they made just a few moves this offseason, the Rockies were able to free up some slots for some of their young up-and-comers who have been blocked over the last few seasons by expensive veterans like Gerardo Parra, Carlos Gonzalez, and D.J. LeMahieu.
Over the next few weeks leading up to Spring Training (which is less than 40 days away), I will be going through each team in the NL West and recapping their 2018 (overall and against the Dodgers), analyzing their off-season thus far, and “Dodger Killers” on their rosters.
For the first two installments in this series, I decided to talk about the San Francisco Giants and in the Arizona Diamondbacks, both of whom are unlikely to make many moves in what remains of this offseason. This will be the first piece on a competitive team that could still make a move or two this offseason but have mostly been left out of the rumor mill over the last week or so.
