Unless the Rockies find a trade partner for Reyes within 10 days — don’t bet on it — the organization will have to eat his $41 million contract and, as the Denver Post reported, if another team claims Reyes the team will be required to pay him at the least the league minimum ($508,000) and the Rockies will pay the rest of his contract.
