The Colorado Rockies are aggressively pursuing Kris Bryant, per John Heyman on Twitter. 

Colorado has struggled to consistently see postseason action over the years and was near the bottom of NL West last season after dealing away former star Nolan Arenado prior to the 2021 campaign. Now that Trevor Story is on the free agent market, the Rockies are in need of offense. Bryant would likely thrive in the high altitude of Coors field and would fit nicely in the middle of the Rockies lineup.

However, he has been linked to multiple teams this offseason and is a popular option on the free agent market. Bryant was connected to the Seattle Mariners  just a few days ago, however, Seattle recently acquired third baseman Eugenio Suarez and outfielder Jesse Winker from Cincinnati making it less likely that the Mariners continue their pursuit of Bryant. While it still is possible, the trade certainly is beneficial for Colorado's chances of landing the former MVP.

The real question comes down too if Bryant would have any interest in playing for the Rockies?

This is a team that is coming off of a 74-win season and a fourth place finish in the NL West. They lost their two best players over the past two years and direction of the franchise is currently unclear. Bryant has also been apart of winning franchises since entering the big leagues so he may opt to sign with a legitimate contender.

On the other hand, the allure of hitting in Coors Field could draw him to sign with Colorado. The Rockies also have a number of high-potential prospects rising through the minor league system so they could develop a winning team in a couple of seasons.

It will be interesting to see if Bryant ends up playing for the Rockies in 2022 and beyond.
