Justin Edmonds/Getty ImagesThe Colorado Rockies have not given up on retaining Carlos Gonzalez.Jon Heyman of MLB Network reported the Rockies are among the teams that have reached out to the veteran outfielder.Gonzalez, 33, spent the last decade in Colorado. He was a three-time All-Star and 2010 NL batting champion. Injuries somewhat derailed his trajectory; he's spent extensive time on the disabled list throughout his career.Gonzalez hit .276/.329/.467 with 16 home runs and 64 runs batted in last season. He bounced back to post a 1.7 WAR after an ugly -0.1 mark in 2017, perFanGraphs. The two sides agreed to a one-year, $5 million deal for the 2018 season."Alot of people (were) counting me out six years ago http://www.metsfanproshop.com/authentic-jacob-degrom-jersey
," Gonzalez toldPatrick Saundersof theDenver Postin September. "I'm still showing up. I never think about it. I always think about the opportunity I have in front of me. Just being here is a tremendous opportunity for me."I try to take advantage every night. I try make my family proud. My fans, everybody who supports me every day and this franchise. I've been here for so long. I do it for everybody. That's all I think about."Wherever Gonzalez lands, he'll likely have to be satisfied being part of a platoon at first. The Rockies tapered off his playing time later in the regular season, though he was a fixture in their postseason lineups. His age and mostly middling production of the last two years likely means he's going to have to settle for another short-term contract, whether it's in Colorado or elsewhere.
