Right now the Colorado Rockies are okay in the National League West as they try to fight their way into contention later in the season. Anything is possible and nothing is out of the question of this team stays healthy. If by chance they fell apart and were struggling, it is possible that they could move some players heading towards free agency. As surprising as it might be, these five players could be included in that activity.
Even though the Rockies just got Anderson, his contract situation makes him a decent target for a trade if they think they could do better elsewhere.
Relief pitching is always a big draw when trade talks really begin and Belisle could certainly be a good option for other teams.
De La Rosa is the supposed ace of the Rockies and still should be going forward. If they fall from contention however, it wouldn't be the most shocking thing ever for the 33 year old to be placed on the trade block.
Sure Cuddyer is a huge offensive part of this team but he is also nearing the end of his contract and is 35 years old. The Rockies want money free to keep Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki long term and are unlikely to resign the veteran.
This just falls under the obvious heading of pitching being a great trade draw. It would depend on the Rockies situation and what kind of return offers they received.
