Arenado Forgets Friction With The Rockies … For Now

SCOTTSDALE, Arizona, USA (AP) – Nolan Arenado said he never got to the extreme to ask to be changed from the Colorado Rockies for feeling like a “disrespectful” team that was mentioned in exchange discussions during the winter break. he is ready to move on despite the frustration at his club’s lack of activity in the free agent market. “There were different conversations, I would not say he came to that,” Arenado said Sunday when reporting to the Rockies camp before the first training on Monday. It’s been almost a year since Arenado signed an agreement for eight years and 260 million dollars – and now it’s unclear how long he will stay. ”I am committed. I’m here and I’m ready to go out and play hard, ”he said. “I will not be a negative presence in the dressing room, that is not my style. I think I will be myself, nothing will change. I want to win. ”Anado commented that he sent text messages to his teammates and that he is committed to Colorado when spring training begins.“ That’s fine, ”said manager Bud Black_ even when Arenado is not sure if he will be all 2020. The Rockies finished with a record of 71-92 last season, in the fourth place of the Western Division of the National League. Arenado did not allow uncertainty to discourage or distract him in his conditioning work with a view to the campaign, he said the seven-time winner of the Golden Glove. “I didn’t panic at all,” he said. “It wasn’t like that, it doesn’t make me nervous. These conversations are like that, they happen. Sometimes there is a bit of friction and that’s fine, it doesn’t affect me. ”The third baseman did hear the rumors of a possible exchange to the Chicago Cubs in exchange for Kris Bryant and said“ it would have been interesting ”.
