Denver Post, the Rockies turned their attention to adding another second baseman. They talked with the Red Sox about Marco Scutaro, but the deal fizzled given the Rockies' lack of financial flexibility and Boston's reluctance to part with the veteran without another everyday shortstop option.
The Rockies remain strongly interested in the Mets' Justin Turner, a more attainable target.
As it stands, Chris Nelson, D.J. LeMahieu and Jonathan Herrera will compete for the second base job.
The Mets were interested in Eric Young Jr., who has been a hot commodity for the Mets lately..
