Rockies bring back Todd Helton as special assistant to GM


AP Sports Writer

DENVER (AP) — The Colorado Rockies are bringing back retired first baseman Todd Helton to serve as a special assistant to general manager Bill Schmidt. Helton’s new role includes pitching in with some draft preparation and scouting but mostly focusing on assisting at the minor-league level. Helton spent 17 seasons with the organization that selected him out of the University of Tennessee with the No. 8 pick in the 1995 draft. He’s the franchise leader in games played, runs, hits, doubles, homers and RBIs to name a few. Helton had his No. 17 retired by the team on Aug. 17, 2014.
