Chris Iannetta, Colorado Rockies
Iannetta's stock less Rocky
The Rockies don't care what the Toronto
Blue Jays did with Miguel Olivo. Colorado
is, however, rumored to be interested in acquiring one of a couple of other,
more high-profile fantasy-worthy catchers.
Barring a move, the Rockies are to some degree committed to Iannetta, whom they handed a three-year deal with a club option last offseason. The organization must be disappointed with their return thus far, but he still has power promise and a strong work ethic. Consider Iannetta's situation in flux, but an investment looks like a relatively safe move early on.
Jay Gibbons, Los Angeles Dodgers (re-signed)
Gibbons re-signed shortly after Scott Podsednik declined his side of a mutual player option with LA. Thus, the former has, for now, a legit shot at winning significant playing time in left. Gibbons performed well in limited duty and has plenty of incentive to get his career back on track. He could be a tremendously deep sleeper.
Angel Guzman, Chicago Cubs (re-signed)
Guzman was the likely setup man for Carlos Marmol before the discovery of a potentially career-ending torn shoulder ligament that required surgery. It was less serious than the club feared, though. Guzman threw in mid-October and might be ready for ST. Just something to monitor. Andrew Cashner is the Cubbies' projected setup man for 2011.
