Cody Decker Traded to Colorado Rockies for Cash Considerations

Former El Paso Chihuahua fan favorite Cody Decker is on the move again. The Kansas City Royals traded Decker to the Colorado Rockies for cash considerations. After a solid spring with the Royals, the first baseman found himself seeing limited action at Triple-A Omaha. He did have three home runs and five RBIs in just 18 at bats with the Storm Chasers this season. However, with Eric Hosmer and Kendrys Morales occupying first base and the DH spot in Kansas City, his path back to the big leagues was blocked with the defending World Series Champions.

Decker will be assigned to the Albuquerque Isotopes, the Triple-A affiliate of the Rockies, and the team is currently hosting the Reno Aces. He is expected to see more starts with his new club, and provide some power in the middle of the order. The Rockies currently have Mark Reynolds and Ben Paulsen playing first base at the big league level, so Decker’s path back to the majors seems much more favorable with the Rockies organization.

Ironically, the Chihuahuas will be hosting the Isotopes on Wednesday, June 15th for Cody Decker Bobblehead night. If Decker is not in Denver by then, he will get to enjoy the festivities, but in the opposing dugout.
