Brian Fuentes has been lights out as the closer of the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by chinmusic on Tuesday 17 June 2008 at 8:24 pm

Veteran lefty Brian Fuentes is back in his old role as closer for the Rockies and he is dominating this year. He has pitched in 31 games (0 starts) for the Rockies this year and he is 1-2 with 11 saves, a 2.20 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP. Fuentes never should have lost his job as the closer last year while he was hurt. But, he snapped the job right back from Manny Corpas who has been pretty bad so far this season. Look for him to continue to dominate this season for the Rockies.

Joe Koshansky is hitting the heck out of the ball in AAA for the Colorado Rockies

26-year old lefty swinging 1B Joe Koshansky is on fire in AAA but he’s blocked by Todd Helton on the Rockies. He has played in 65 games this season in AAA ball and he is 75 for 242 (.310 avg, 1.011 OPS) with 43 runs scored, 15 homers and 66 RBIs. He was the #17 prospect in the Rockies’ Minor League System when the season began according to Baseball America’s Prospect Handbook. If the Rockies don’t make a run soon they could look to trade Helton which could open an opportunity for Koshansky at the major league level.

Yorvit Torrealba better start hitting or he is going to lose playing time for the Colorado Rockies

Yorvit Torrealba might become the Rockies’ backup catcher soon as he is clearly getting outplayed by Chris Iannetta. Torrealba has played in 39 games this season for the Rockies and he is 30 for 137 (.219 avg, .595 OPS) with 6 runs scored, 2 homers and 15 RBIs. The Rockies should have been more careful about re-signing Torrealba in the off season after his deal fell through with the Mets due to right shoulder issues. Chris Iannetta had a terrible rookie season but he’s swinging a good stick right now and it should earn him even more playing time than he is already getting. Iannetta has played in 33 games so far this season for the Rockies and he is 30 for 104 (.288 avg, .938 OPS) with 16 runs scored, 6 homers and 21 RBIs.
