The Rockies have broadened their scope in attempt to land a right-handed bat and starting pitcher, inquiring about Arizona outfielder Justin Upton and White Sox right-hander Gavin Floyd, according to multiple major league sources.
… Interest in Floyd, a reliable innings eater who’s under contract through 2012, is tied directly to the Rockies’ dwindling chances of keeping free agent Jorge De La Rosa.
… The White Sox are looking for offense, and asked about the Rockies’ Ian Stewart, a third baseman. He’s no longer off limits, but the Rockies don’t have a third baseman to replace him.
