The Rockies are talking to Ryan Vogelsong

Last week there was a rumor that the Colorado Rockies were talking to the Marlins about maybe trading for Dan Haren. That would’ve been a bad idea given Haren’s fly ball tendencies. It probably would be a better idea than this, though:

#Rockies have had talks with free-agent starter Ryan Vogelsong, source says. They are pursuing a RHP for rotation. @FOXSports

Vogelsong was 8-13 with a 4.00 ERA in 2014 and 4-6 with a 5.73 ERA in 2013. He turns 38 in July. While he’s not as homer-happy as Dan Haren is, it’s not likely he’d do well in Coors Field either, where he has given up 40 hits, ten of which were homers, in 30 innings over the course of his career, posting a 7.92 ERA.
