Athletics’ left-hander Brett Anderson is a very popular name on the trade market and FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal hears that the Rockies are the latest team to ask about him.

The two teams had discussions about Anderson yesterday, but Rosenthal hears that they were unable to find a match on a deal. Talks are unlikely to be revived, but the Athletics should find plenty of interest at next week’s Winter Meetings in Orlando. The Blue Jays, Royals, Indians, Twins, Mariners, and Yankees are among the other teams who have reportedly inquired on Anderson thus far.

Anderson's 2013 season was marred by injury as the left-hander started a career low five games and finished the season with a bloated 6.04 ERA.
