Gonzalez confirmed to the Rockies that he would be open to switching spots in the outfield, though informed the team that if he does he would want to stay in center, not be flip flopped around in the outfield.
Colorado has talked to all-star outfielder Carlos Gonzalez about playing center, a subtle indication that the Rockies will listen to offers for Dexter Fowler. Gonzalez said he’s OK with playing center field as long as it’s his primary position. He has injured himself when rotating from spot to spot in the outfield.
The Rockies were hopeful that Fowler would eventually become their everyday leadoff hitter though he’s struggled for consistency, not to mention consistently finding himself dinged up.
Fowler is due $7.35 in 2014 and is under team control through 2015, so it’s possible, assuming the Rockies do put him on the block, they’ll be able to secure a solid return for his services.
