Colorado Rockies star third baseman Nolan Arenado recently shared a note with his fans after some comments voicing displeasure.

"There has been a lot of stuff going on that nobody knows about and I was reacting to what was said and was out of character for me because I'm very private with my life. The Rockies have been talking to my agent and me this offseason about a number of things that will remain between us. I will not speak on these things anymore. I'm getting ready for the upcoming season. I'm working hard to get better for my teammates and fans."

The Rockies are reportedly looking to trade Arenado because of their payroll concerns and weak farm system.

ESPN's Jeff Passan reported that Arenado is upset with the Rockies' lack of moves in the offseason. Colorado went just 71-91 last season and Arenado feels that they didn't improve their roster enough.

"The disrespect, sources told ESPN, centered on the Rockies' winter of inaction less than a year after the team signed Arenado to an eight-year, $260 million contract extension. When the organization signaled early this offseason that it did not intend to expand its payroll this winter, Arenado expressed betrayal, according to sources, believing Colorado was not doing enough to improve a team coming off a 71-91 season."

The star third baseman hit .315 (185-for-588) with 102 runs, 31 doubles, two triples, 41 home runs, 118 RBI, 62 walks and three stolen bases across 155 games for the Rockies last season.
