Although it's extremely unlikely, the Rockies could always use Rutledge as trade bait for other needs.
No. 14 has been a consistent contributor to Colorado, and the fans aren't the only ones that took notice.
There are other teams that I'm sure have seen what Josh has brought to the table for the Rockies, and without a doubt, in the future, the organization will receive calls about this guy.
While his opportunities at the position have been limited, he's been playing a solid second base, and quality second basemen are in demand.
There's been a saying for as long as I can remember that says, "You can never have too much pitching."
If that's the case, the Rox could always flip Rutledge for some arms—either to be placed in the rotation or bullpen.
As I said earlier, although it's doubtful, it could happen.
