The team's biggest chip is lefty starter Jorge De La Rosa, but the Rockies haven't made him available. Part of the reason is the Rockies hope that within the next month they can catch fire and become a factor in the National League West race.
If not, De La Rosa, who has a club option for 2014 valued at $11 million, could be moved after clearing waivers. Players traded before Aug. 31 are eligible for the postseason with their new club. However, there is plenty of sentiment inside the Rockies to bring back De La Rosa next season as one of the starting rotation's cornerstones.
The Rockies also could add bullpen help, but not much is happening so far in that regard.
