Which Rockies players might be on the way out this offseason? With Bridich not going anywhere, and with other targets of frustration like Ian Desmond and Wade Davis fairly entrenched, we're left to look at less prominent but nevertheless significant players who might be on their way out as the Rockies try to fix their roster this offseason.
