35-year old righty swinging outfielder Ryan Raburn is making the most of the playing time he has been getting for the Colorado Rockies so far in 2016.  He has played in 33 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 18 of 60 (.300 avg, 984 OPS) with 9 runs scored, 5 homers and 12 RBIs.  He has had 18 appearances as a pinch hitter so far this year and he is 5 for 16 (.313 avg, 1.076 OPS) with 2 runs scored, 2 homers, 4 RBIs and 2 walks!  The Rockies should find a way to get Raburn some more ABs moving forward.

The Colorado Rockies have activated 35-year old lefty starting pitcher Jorge De La Rosa off the D.L.  De La Rosa pitched in 5 games (all starts) earlier this year for the Rockies and he was 1-3 with a 10.18 ERA and a 2.07 WHIP.  He has now pitched in 187 games (181 starts) in his first 9 years with the Rockies and he is 79-55 with a 4.32 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP.  The Rockies hope that De La Rosa gets back on the right track, as he is the Rockies’ all-time leader in about everything!  To make room on the active roster for De La Rosa, the Rockies have sent 25-year old righty starting pitcher Jordan Lyles back to AAA.  Lyles has pitched in 5 games (all starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 1-2 with a 8.55 ERA and a 2.05 WHIP.  Lyles has pitched in 37 games (all starts) in his first three years with the Rockies and he is 10-11 with a 4.97 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP.  Lyles will get another shot with the Rockies later on this year.

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Friday 20 May 2016 at 5:04 pm

The Colorado Rockies have called up 25-year old righty starting pitcher Jordan Lyles and 21-year old righty reliever Miguel Castro.  Lyles has pitched in 4 games (all starts) in AAA-ball for the Rockies this year and he is 1-1 with a 5.40 ERA and a 1.85 WHIP.  He also pitched in 4 games (all starts) earlier this year for the Rockies in which he was 1-1 with a 7.64 ERA and a 1.87 WHIP.  Lyles will pitch out of the pen this time around for the Rockies.  Castro pitched in 2 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball for the Rockies and he was 0-1 with a 13.50 ERA and a 2.00 WHIP.  He also pitched in 6 games (0 starts) earlier this year for the Rockies and he was 0-0 with a 1.50 ERA and a 0.67 WHIP.  Adding these two guys should give a boost to the pen, as they both have live arms.

Harrison Musgrove is looking good in the minors for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Thursday 19 May 2016 at 8:23 am

24-year old lefty starting pitcher Harrison Musgrove is looking sharp in the minors for the Colorado Rockies.  He has pitched in 6 games (all starts) in AA-ball for the Rockies so far this year and he is 5-1 with a 1.79 ERA and a 0.69 WHIP.  He has only given up 20 hits and 8 walks while whiffing 30 batters in his first 40 1/3 innings this year.  Musgrove has now pitched in 46 games (44 starts) in his first three years in the minors and he is 20-10 with a 3.28 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP.  He could get to the show later this year if he keeps pitching well…..as the Rockies always need pitching.

Jake McGee is looking good for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by joelapinski on Thursday 19 May 2016 at 8:20 am

29-year old lefty Jake McGee is taking advantage of his first shot as a full time closer with the Colorado Rockies.  McGee has pitched in 17 games (0 starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 0-1 with 13 saves, a 3.78 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP.  He has given up 18 hits and 5 walks while whiffing 11 batters in his first 16 2/3 innings for the Rockies.  In his last 7 games, McGee is 0-0 with 6 saves, a 1.29 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP.  The only sore spot so far for McGee is that he hasn’t pitched near as well at Coors Field (which is understandable).  He has pitched in 9 games at home so far this year and he is 0-1 with 6 saves, a 5.19 ERA and a 1.39 WHIP.  McGee will likely smash his prior career high of 19 saves in a season!
