The MLB offseason continues to await madness during the league's annual Winter Meetings. But, that hasn't stopped the rumors from flying. One team involved in those rumors is the Colorado Rockies. Colorado landed top prospect Nolan Jones from the Cleveland Guardians in a trade last week.

Now, the Rockies are linked to a former MVP in free agency.

Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reported Wednesday that the Rockies are "among teams interested in free agent outfielder Cody Bellinger."

Bellinger wasn't given a contract from the Los Angeles Dodgers a week ago, the team he's spent the entirety of his six-year career with. Bellinger won the 2019 NL MVP award after smashing 47 home runs, 115 RBIs and an impressive .305/.406/.629 slash line.

His power numbers crashed down following this award-winning campaign and Bellinger's notched 41 home runs total in the three years since. It's safe to assume playing in a hitter's paradise like Coors Field would be attractive for Bellinger's next step in his career.
