Colorado Rockies manager Jim Tracy has a decent chance to return as manager for the 2013 season, but he's not completely assured of a job next year, either. "When a team is on its way to 100 losses, of course the manager is going to be up for discussion," a person with knowledge of the situation said. The team will likely take a few weeks after the season to evaluate all their options. Pitching coach Bob Apodaca has already stepped down and general manager Dan O'Dowd has assumed less responsibilities. The Rockies are also leaning on hiring Mark Wiley as their new pitching coordinator.

The Colorado Rockies will restructure their front office, but general manager Dan O'Dowd will remain, but he'll be more focused on the minor leagues and player development. Assistant general manager Bill Geivett will have his day-to-day duties expanded with the major league team. Geivett will be giving O'Dowd more assistance, and they'll both work closely with skipper Jim Tracy.

Colorado Rockies general manager Dan O'Dowd said OF Carlos Gonzalez won't be traded before the trade deadline. "The Carlos Gonzalez thing is a joke," O'Dowd said. "We're not trading Carlos Gonzalez." Washington Nationals GM Mike Rizzo reportedly called with interest in Gonzalez and was turned down. OF Michael Cuddyer is unlikely to go anywhere, either. OF Dexter Fowler is unlikely to be moved, but O'Dowd did not call him untouchable. RPs Rafael Betancourt and Matt Belisle are unlikely to be traded as well, per O'Dowd. SP Jeremy Guthrie, 1B Jason Giambi and SS Marco Scutaro are the most likely to be traded if anyone goes this summer.
