Ian Stewart traded from Rockies to Cubs in four-player deal
UPDATED: 12/09/2011 06:16:05 AM MST
DALLAS — In their continued effort to shake up the roster, the Rockies on Thursday sent two former first-round picks — third baseman Ian Stewart and pitcher Casey Weathers — to the Cubs in exchange for infielder D.J. LeMahieu, 23, and outfielder Tyler Colvin, 26.
LeMahieu will compete for the starting second-base job in spring training and also has big-league experience at third. Colvin, who hit 20 home runs two seasons ago, can play all three outfield positions and will experiment at first base as well.
“We’re continuing to look for the right pieces,” general manager Dan O’Dowd said.
LeMahieu spent most of the season in Triple-A with the Iowa Cubs. He hit .250 in 60 at-bats with no home runs for the

major-league club. Colvin hit .150 in 206 at-bats with six home runs.
Stewart fell out of favor after an awful 2011 season. He went homerless in 122 at-bats and struggled with knee, hamstring and wrist injuries.
The Rockies believe they were better off providing Stewart with a change of scenery rather than giving him another shot at the third-base job. Weathers struggled this season at Double-AA Tulsa and has not been able to gain traction since undergoing elbow surgery.
The Rockies are still looking to add a proven bat, and their willingness to consider a three-year deal for outfielder Michael Cuddyer has turned them into a serious suitor for the free agent.
Cuddyer, 32, is already sitting on a three-year, $25 million offer from the Twins, for whom he has played his entire career. The Rockies’ trade of reliever Huston Street on Wednesday, freeing up $7 million on next season’s payroll, has left them in position to be more aggressive with free-agent targets, namely Cuddyer and starter Hiroki Kuroda.
O’Dowd has long identified Cuddyer as a good fit for the Rockies, citing his right-handed power and solid presence in the clubhouse. He confirmed the club’s interest again Thursday but declined to
talk about specifics of any offer. When the offseason began, the Rockies were holding firm to the idea of a two-year proposal for Cuddyer.
“But we’ve worked our way through that,” said O’Dowd on going to three years.
Rockies players are also believed to be trying to sell Cuddyer on Colorado. Players were involved in recruiting free-agent catcher Ramon Hernandez, including Jason Giambi, a former teammate. The Twins want Cuddyer back but acknowledged that they can’t wait much longer for a decision. Minnesota GM Terry Ryan said he can’t re-sign both Cuddyer and outfielder Jason Kubel.
An all-star last season, Cuddyer hit .284 with 20 home runs and 70 RBIs, and could play a corner position for the Rockies and likely hit fifth
in the order.
Cuddyer is known for his toughness and leadership, qualities the Rockies were lacking during last season’s disappointing fourth-place finish in the National League West. He’s also been to the playoffs six times, most recently in 2010.
“We have flexibility and an opportunity now. But we aren’t looking to just add to add,” O’Dowd said. “We are looking to add an impact arm or bat. If that’s not there, we will be patient.”
Footnotes.The Rockies sent minor-league pitcher Daniel Turpen to the Twins to complete the Kevin Slowey trade. Colorado will receive a minor-league pitcher from the Padres, possibly as soon as this weekend, for Street. … Chad Bettis, firmly on the Rockies’ radar to help in the bullpen this season, is expected to begin the season in Double-A and move quickly.
