Rockies could make more moves before Deadline
DENVER -- With Tuesday's non-waiver Trade Deadline looming and the team stuck 17 games back in the National League West, there's a good chance more Rockies players could be on their way out of town.

The club traded Marco Scutaro to the Giants on Friday night, their third trade this year (Jeremy Guthrie to the Royals; Esmil Rogers to Cleveland). Closer Rafael Betancourt and backup catcher Ramon Hernandez are both under contract through next season but have been rumored as trade bait.

"There's an understanding amongst our veteran players that this is a business," manager Jim Tracy said. "There's certain things that have to be done."

It will all result in a youth movement, if it hasn't already. Half of the Rockies starting infield Saturday against the Reds began the season in the Minors, with Todd Helton the only one with more than a year of experience.

"Patience is very, very important," Tracy said. "[If they] make mistakes, you let them know. And then they'll get better."
