Free-agent outfielder Michael Cuddyer has a three-year, $25 million offer from his former employer, the Minnesota Twins, but an offer from the Colorado Rockies has him considering a move, according to the Denver Post. Cuddyer hit 20 home runs last season for the Twins and went to the All-Star game.

The Rockies are willing to offer a three-year deal to Cuddyer, the paper reports, making them a "serious suitor."

The Post notes that the team's trade of closer Huston Street on Wednesday has freed up $7 million of salary for next season, leaving the Rockies "in position to be more aggressive with free-agent targets, namely Cuddyer and pitcher Hiroki Kuroda."

The Post also reports that "Rockies players are also believed to be trying to sell Cuddyer on Colorado."
