Righty starting pitcher Pedro Astacio pitched prior to the use of the humidor at Coors Field. Astacio pitched five years for the Rockies appearing in 130 games (129 starts) in which he was 53-48 with a 5.43 ERA and a 1.46 WHIP. To show you what pitching at Coors Field was like Astacio pitched in 262 games (214 starts) with other teams and he was 76-76 with a 4.21 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP. Astacio’s best season with the Rockies came in 1999 when he pitched in 34 games (all starts) in which he was 17-11 with a 5.04 ERA and a 1.44 WHIP. Astacio is still all over the Rockies’ record books as he is the all-time leader in Rockies’ history in complete games (14) and strikeouts (749). He is also #5 all-time in games started (129), #3 in wins (53), #10 in ERA (5.43), tied for #7 in shutouts (1) and he is #3 in innings pitched (827 1/3). Astacio had the bad luck of pitching with the Rockies early in their inception but he did a good job.
