Gonzalez has $71 million remaining on his contract.
Carlos Gonzalez is very comparable to Justin Upton in terms of age, MLB experience, salary and skill set.
CarGo challenged for NL MVP honors in 2010 and was producing at a similar rate last season before being slowed by a lingering hamstring injury. He totals plenty of stolen bases and extra-base hits. The 27-year-old's contract extension runs through 2017.
According to Jon Paul Morosi of Fox Sports, the Colorado Rockies have not considered trading him lately.
That could change, however, as the team struggles to add starting pitching depth. Carl Pavano isn't a target anymore after the right-hander ruptured his spleen in a bizarre snow-shoveling accident.
The Arizona Diamondbacks dealt their star for an MLB-ready starting pitcher, accomplished infielder and several prospects. Colorado can now hold out for an offer of that ilk.
