Source: Rockies to sign Tracy, O’Dowd to long-term deals

Jim Tracy has returned to Pennsylvania to attend to some projects around his house, but he could return to Denver later this week to sign a multiyear deal as the Rockies’ manager.

On Monday, a major-league source close to the situation said the Rockies will first hammer out a new multiyear contract with general manager Dan O’Dowd. That deal should be worked out in the next few days, the source said, clearing the way to finalize Tracy’s deal.

The Rockies are also expected to invite the entire coaching staff to return in the same roles: bench coach Tom Runnells, pitching coach Bob Apodaca, first-base coach Glenallen Hill, third-base coach Rich Dauer, hitting coach Don Baylor and bullpen coach Jim Wright.
