Rasmus back in St. Louis for 1st time since trade in '11

ST. LOUIS (AP) Colby Rasmus was one of the last Houston Astros to leave the field after pre-game warmups, taking his time posing for pictures after batting practice.

The 29-year-old Rasmus was traded to Toronto in July 2011 and said he bore...

Colby Rasmus' Free Agent Prospects

Colby Rasmus is one of the most intriguing free agents of this winter. When he signed for the Astros on a one-year deal last winter, I believe most people, myself included, thought this was a one-year situation, and he would move on after 2015. However, Rasmus' play all season was far better than the Astros, or anyone, could have possibly expected. In the latter part of the season...

Is Colby Rasmus a potential fit for the Cleveland Indians?

The Cleveland Indians have an interesting offseason ahead. As World Series-winning GM Dayton Moore just mentioned, the team’s starting rotation is playoff-quality and “one of the best in the game.” After that? There certainly are some question marks. And they likely begin with the outfield. Heading into next season, the Indians have Michael Brantley penciled in at left field...

Let’s talk about Colby Rasmus

For some inexplicable reason, I’ve always been a Colby Rasmus fan. Actually, I can explain it – Tony La Russa hates Colby Rasmus, so I must love him. Traded for pennies on the dollar to Toronto, Rasmus (the former #3 prospect in baseball) has had a very up-and-down career so far. He’s now a free agent, and one the Cubs will no doubt look into. Offense Rasmus has put up some...

Player Profile #186: Colby Rasmus | OF | TOR

Just because Colby Rasmus hasn’t lived up to the potential he showed in his minor league career or his breakout 2010 season with the Cardinals doesn’t mean that he’s someone to ignore. After all, the 27-year-old outfielder has hit 22 or 23 HR in three of the last 4 years while posting a .225 ISO last year. But unfortunately Rasmus has become another one of those good power...

2013 fluke or future - Colby Rasmus

Would you believe me if I told you that Colby Rasmus' slugging percentage was only seven points lower than McCutchen in 2013? Would you believe me if I told you that he had a more valuable season than Adam Jones? How about if I told you that he had a better defensive season than Span, Ellsbury, Blanco and McCutchen? I would not blame you if you would not have believed any of those...
