MLB Trade Rumors: Rockies Listening To Offers On 2 Starters

The Colorado Rockies are actively listening to trade offers for their two starting pitchers, Cal Quantrill and Austin Gomber, as the MLB trade deadline approaches. 

With a challenging 29-56 record, the Rockies are exploring ways to capitalize on the value of these pitchers while looking to reshape their roster. 

Both Quantrill and Gomber are under team control through the 2025 season, making them appealing targets for teams seeking mid-rotation stability at a relatively low cost.

Cal Quantrill, a 29-year-old right-hander, has emerged as a standout this season, posting a 3.78 ERA over 95.1 innings. 

Acquired from Cleveland in an offseason deal, Quantrill's rebound performance at Coors Field and solid underlying metrics make him a valuable trade asset. 

His consistent ability to induce ground balls and limit hard contact adds to his appeal for contending teams looking for reliable pitching depth. 

Meanwhile, Austin Gomber, a 30-year-old left-hander, has shown flashes of potential despite a more inconsistent season, with a 4.72 ERA over 87.2 innings. Gomber’s team-friendly contract and experience make him an intriguing option for teams in need of additional pitching depth.

While neither pitcher is expected to bring back franchise-altering returns, the Rockies' willingness to entertain offers marks a notable shift in their strategy. 

Historically hesitant to trade valuable veterans, this approach could help prevent losing players to free agency without any return, as seen in past seasons.
