DENVER (AP) — The season remains weeks away and already Nolan Arenado hit one out of the park.With his record-setting deal anyway.It could be the start of that kind of year for the Colorado Rockies All-Star third baseman http://www.redsfanproshop.com/authentic-drew-storen-jersey , who recently agreed to a $26 million deal to avoid arbitration — the largest one-year salary for an arbitration-eligible player.Next up: Possibly a long-term deal that could keep him in Denver for years to come. If not, Arenado, who turns 28 on April 16, hits the free agency market at the end of the season. He will no doubt be a highly coveted commodity.“Nolan’s a really good player and the longer he plays with the Rockies, the better we’ll be,” said outfielder Charlie Blackmon, who’s looking at a switch from center to left field in 2019. “It’s pretty safe to say he makes every team he’s on even better. I really hope that’s with the Rockies for years and years to come.”Arenado’s been very clear about his No. 1 priority: Playing for a contender. The Rockies have certainly made good on that.They’re coming off a season in which they took the Los Angeles Dodgers to an extra game to decide the NL West — the Dodgers won — and then beat the Chicago Cubs in the NL Wild Card game. Colorado was eliminated from the postseason by Milwaukee.It was the second straight season the Rockies had gone to the playoffs, something that’s never happened before in franchise history. The team lost to Arizona in the 2017 NL Wild Card contest.“I’m not a big fan of losing. We did less losing last year than we did in the past,” Blackmon said. “I’d like to win a few more games, go a little deeper, do better than we did the year before.”Arenado finished last season hitting .297, with 38 homers and 110 RBIs. He’s a maestro at third in picking up his sixth straight Gold Glove. His recent deal to avoid arbitration broke the previous mark of $23 million that Josh Donaldson brought in last season in Toronto.To help Arenado and provide an offensive boost — the team hit a franchise-worst .256 — the Rockies brought in Daniel Murphy to play first base. That means Ian Desmond will head to the outfield. They’ll rely heavily on youngsters such as Garrett Hampson, Ryan McMahon or Brendan Rodgers at second base after the departure of DJ LeMahieu to the New York Yankees.They need their young staff of Kyle Freeland and German Marquez to take another step forward, along with Jon Gray returning to his old form after struggling down the stretch and being left off the postseason roster.Things to know heading into spring training after a season in which the Rockies finished 91-72:NEW LOOK: Clubhouse leader Carlos Gonzalez won’t be with the team for the first time in a decade. At least Scott Feldman Jersey , that’s the case for now. Gonzalez didn’t start out with Colorado last season, but signed a one-year deal in mid-March. He hit .276 with 16 homers and 64 RBIs. Also gone are LeMahieu and reliever Adam Ottavino , who both signed with the Yankees. Outfielder Gerardo Parra remains a free agent.ROOKIES TO WATCH: Rodgers could emerge as the second baseman for the Rockies. The third overall pick in the 2015 draft, Rodgers hit a combined .268 with 17 homers for Double-A Hartford and Triple-A Albuquerque.THEY’RE SET: Trevor Story had a breakout season in making his first All-Star team. He hit .291 with 37 homers and also cut down on his strikeouts. He dealt with some elbow soreness down the stretch, but pronounced it good to go.THEY’RE NOT: Ottavino leaving for the Yankees leaves a big eighth-inning hole in the bullpen. The Rockies relied heavily on Ottavino to bridge the gap to Wade Davis, who saved a franchise-record 43 games. The spot could be filled by moving up Seunghwan Oh or Scott Oberg. Other possibilities include Jake McGee, Bryan Shaw or Chris Rusin, three relievers looking for bounce-back seasons.ON DECK: Colorado isn’t getting much love from Las Vegas, which lists the team as likely to win 82 1/2 games in 2019. Some pundits have tabbed the Rockies to be the playoff squad most likely not to make it back. To think, they were no longer viewing themselves as underdogs. “We’re trying to win a World Series and contend and sustain that,” manager Bud Black said. Colorado opens the season at Miami on March 28. Tom Szczerbowski/Getty ImagesOn Tuesday, the New York Yankees acquired Baltimore Orioles reliever Zach Britton in exchange for three prospects.That move takes one of the biggest remaining names off the trading block, but there are still a few other transactions set to take place between now and the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline.Here's a look at three of the top players involved in trade rumors and predictions for where they will be in August. J.A. HappPer Andy Martino of Sportsnet New York, the Jays have dropped their asking price for left-handed starting pitcher J.A. Happ Eugenio Suarez Jersey , who is 10-6 with a 4.18 ERA and 130 strikeouts this season:Andy Martino martinonycSource: Jays asking price on J.A. Happ has dropped from a few weeks ago. We asking teams for top 3 prospedt-types, now are being more realisticLeft-handed starting pitchers aren't exactly a dime a dozen, so Happ should have numerous teams after him as the deadline nears.The team that makes the most sense is the Philadelphia Phillies.On July 17, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reported that the Phillies were interested in Happ, noting that "there is definite interest."Phillies general manager Matt Klentak threw some cold water on the idea of acquiring a starting pitcher, per Bill Evans of NJ Advance Media, saying that "(the Phillies) werehoping to stay out of the starting pitcher trade market, that's one you would like to stay out of."However, Klentak also said that he'd "love to include a lefty" and that "if (the Phillies) have to opportunity to sign a lefty or trade for one, we'll look into it, but we won't force it."The Phillies' rotation is entirely right-handed, so adding a lefty would be a great fit for the team. He could easily slide into the No. 3 spot behind Aaron Nola and Jake Arrieta. As for Klentak's remark about the team not forcing anything, it may not have to if the Jays dropped their asking price.With the Phils in the midst of a tight division race with the Atlanta Braves (and perhaps the Washington Nationals if that team can finally string together some wins), they need to add some reinforcements for the stretch run. Happ would be a good start.Prediction: Trade to Philadelphia Chris ArcherAlthough he allowed three second-inning runs http://www.redsfanproshop.com/authentic-jose-peraza-jersey , Tampa Bay Rays starting pitcher Chris Archer looked phenomenal against the Miami Marlins on Sunday, punching out 13 batters in six strong innings.It was an encouraging sign for the 28-year-old, who was making his third start after coming off the disabled list due to an abdominal strain.That was also good news for a few teams who could be looking to add Archer for the stretch run.A few teams are in the mix.Per Jerry Crasnick of ESPN, the New York Yankees have inquired about Archer.However, he reported that the odds of him being moved seem slim:Jerry Crasnick jcrasnickThe #Yankees are among the clubs that have inquired on Chris Archer. But other teams are skeptical the #Rays will move Archer -- period -- much less to a division opponent when hes under contract at a reasonable price through 2021. That never helps the trade dynamic.Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports and The Athletic reported that the San Diego Padres and Milwaukee Brewers are also in the discussion:Ken Rosenthal Ken_RosenthalIn this column, an exploration of the #Padres鈥?interest in #Rays鈥?Archer: vARe8gcJyN $Ken Rosenthal Ken_Rosenthal#Brewers continue to cast wide net in search for upgrades, sources tell me and ByRobertMurray. They are among the teams pursuing #Orioles鈥?Britton and also considering #Rays鈥?Archer. Had extensive discussions with #Orioles on Machado;know which prospects O鈥檚 like.Archer's contractruns through 2019, but the Rays have club options in 2020 and 2021. Still, that hasn't stopped teams from looking into him.Unless Tampa is floored with an offer it can't refuse, it's hard seeing Archer going anywhere when the team can hypothetically retain him for the next few years and hope he's part of a brighter, playoff-contending future.Prediction:Stays with Tampa BayAsdrubal CabreraThe last-place New York Mets are playing out the string, and they've already begun trading proven veterans for prospects. Closer Jeurys Familia is now an Oakland Athletic, and the next player to go could be second baseman Asdrubal Cabrera, who has hit 17 home runs to go along with a .806 OPS.Per Buster Olney of ESPN Tucker Barnhart Jersey , a few teams are after Cabrera:Buster Olney Buster_ESPNAsdrubal Cabrera could be the next Met to move: Hes hitting .280, .332 OBP, 17 homers, positional flexibility. Brewers, Cleveland, Phillies among the teams with interest in him.The Milwaukee Brewers make the most sense, as they have rotating doors at shortstop and second base. Per Baseball-Reference, three players have manned short for 24 or more games, while a quartet has seen action for 12 or more games at second. Cabrera, who is a shortstop by trade but has played second base of late, can put a lockdown on one of the middle-infield positions.Rosenthal also noted that the Brew Crew could be after Minnesota Twins second baseman Brian Dozier as well, so it's clear Milwaukee is looking for someone in the middle infield. However, Cabrera may be a better fit for the Brewers than Dozier thanks to his positional versatility.Prediction: Trade to Milwaukee
