Some rumor mongers have it that the Colorado Rockies are hot for free-agent outfielder Michael Cuddyer, but MLB.com reports that he's got some competition in the form of Carlos Beltran.
According to "two Major League sources with knowledge of the situation," the Rockies are trying to get the six-time All-Star Beltran signed, the site notes.
The 34-year-old Beltran, a switch hitter, batted .300 with 22 homers and 84 RBIs for the New York Mets and San Francisco Giants last season. At Coors Field, Beltran has hit .276 with six home runs, 24 RBIs, nine doubles and a triple over 25 games in his career.
MLB.com notes that Beltran also has interest from the St. Louis Cardinals and Boston Red Sox, and it remains unclear when Beltran will make the decision of where he'll call home next season.
