Rockies’ trade deadline plans are ‘more complicated’ because of recent struggles, general manager says

The Rockies aren’t sure about their trade deadline plans.

Colorado remains in playoff contention but has lost four in a row and 11 of its last 13 games. General manager Jeff Bridich told reporters this week the team was still evaluating its options.

“The way that we’ve looked at the deadline in the past, especially in the recent past, is that if we are truly competing, if we’re showing signs as a team of being a legitimate competitor for being a postseason team, we’re going to do what we can to add to that and strengthen the team,” Bridich said, via MLB.com. “Right now, it feels different. That’s disappointing.”

Despite the recent struggles, the Rockies are just 3 1/2 games out of the second National League wild-card spot. The team, however, does not seem like a serious threat to win a championship this season.
