The Rockies have made it no secret that they would like to deal Wilson, who is a free agent after next season. Wilson has gone on record to say that he would be willing to play a corner position, which would likely be the case if he were traded to Washington.
Carvajal faces former organization: Rockies reliever Marcos Carvajal faced the team that scouted and signed him on Monday night, and looked impressive.Carvajal signed with the Dodgers as a free agent in 2000, and was selected by the Brewers in the 2004 Rule 5 Draft. The Rockies had an arrangement with Milwaukee to acquire Carvajal. On Monday, Carvajal entered in the seventh inning with one out, the game tied and the bases loaded. He threw one pitch and got a double play. The following inning, Carvajal struck out the side. "I wanted to let them know they were wrong for not giving me a chance and protecting me to pitch for them," Carvajal said through fellow right-hander David Cortes. Carvajal is the youngest player in Rockies history at 20 years old. In 24 appearances entering Tuesday, he has a 4.73 ERA with 25 strikeouts in 32 1/3 innings. Monday's outing was one of the few times he has entered a game during a pressure situation. Injury updates: Mike DeJean threw his second simulated game on Tuesday, after complaining of shoulder soreness following his first session. The Rockies expected to activate him on Monday, but due to the pain, they wanted DeJean to throw again on Tuesday. Hurdle said the team is waiting to see how he feels Wednesday before deciding when to activate him. DeJean, who was released by the Mets in June, pitched for Colorado from 1997-2000. Outfielder Matt Holliday, who has missed 23 games because of a fractured right pinky finger, took 50 swings off a tee on Tuesday, the first time he has swung since the injury. Holliday has played long toss for several days, and is expected to hit live pitching in the batting cage later this homestand. Todd Greene is not making the same progress as Holliday. Greene strained his right hamstring in early June on the bases, and continued to experience discomfort on Monday. There is no timetable for his return. On deck: Chacon (1-4, 3.83 ERA) will start for the Rockies on Wednesday against the Dodgers in the third game of the four-game set. Los Angeles will send Brad Penny (4-5, 3.49 ERA) to the mound.
