The Colorado Rockies are loaded for bear in the bullpen for 2011

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Positional Previews for Season by chinmusic on Wednesday 30 March 2011 at 10:47 pm

The Colorado Rockies hope that 27-year old righty closer Huston Street can stay healthy in 2011. He pitched in 44 games (0 starts) for the Rockies last year and he was 4-4 with 20 saves, a 3.61 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP. Street has now pitched in 108 games (0 starts) in his first two years with the Rockies and he is 8-5 with 55 saves, a 3.30 ERA and a 0.97 WHIP. He has only given up 82 hits and 24 walks in his first 109 innings for the Rockies, while also whiffing 115 batters which shows just how nasty he can be.

The Rockies dealt for 31-year old righty Matt Lindstrom over the winter to give them insurance against Street’s health in 2011. Lindstrom pitched in 58 games (0 starts) for the Astros last year and he was 2-5 with 23 saves, a 4.39 ERA and a 1.65 WHIP. He has now pitched in 249 games (0 starts) in his first four years in the majors and he is 10-13 with 43 saves, a 4.00 ERA and a 1.49 WHIP. Lindstrom’s results just have not matched his stuff to his point in his career as he is one of the hardest throwers in all of baseball. Maybe this is the year he really breaks out.

30-year old righty Matt Belisle really broke out for the Rockies last year. He pitched in 76 games (0 starts) for the Rockies last year and he was 7-5 with 1 save, a 2.93 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP. Belisle has now pitched in 100 games (0 starts) in his first two years with the Rockies and he is 10-6 with 1 save, a 3.59 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP. The Rockies are expecting another decent year out of Belisle in 2011.

35-year old righty Rafael Betancourt gives the Rockies another huge arm for late in games. Betancourt pitched in 72 games (0 starts) for the Rockies last year and he was 5-1 with 1 save, a 3.61 ERA and a 0.96 WHIP. He has now pitched in 104 games (0 starts) in his first two years with the Rockies and he is 8-2 with 2 saves, a 3.08 ERA and a 0.94 WHIP. Betancourt only has given up 69 hits and 13 walks in his first 87 2/3 innings with the Rockies and he has 118 whiffs, which shows just how effective he is.

25-year old lefty Franklin Morales has yet to live up to his potential and the Rockies hope that this is the year that it all comes together for him. Morales pitched in 25 games (0 starts) for the Rockies last year and he was 0-4 with 3 saves, a 6.28 ERA and a 1.81 WHIP. Morales has now pitched in 88 games (15 starts) in his first four years with the Rockies and he is 7-10 with 10 saves, a 4.93 ERA and a 1.55 WHIP.

26-year old lefty Matt Reynolds comes into this year as the Rockies’ #20 overall prospect according to Baseball America. Reynolds pitched in 21 games (0 starts) for the Rockies last year and he was 1-0 with a 2.00 ERA and a 0.83 WHIP. He only gave up 10 hits in 18 innings for the Rockies last year while whiffing 17 batters, so he was very impressive. Reynolds also pitched in 50 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball last year and he was 1-3 with 7 saves, a 2.62 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP.

27-year old righty Felipe Paulino will shift to the bullpen for the Rockies in a role where his power stuff will play better. Paulino pitched in 19 games (14 starts) for the Astros last year and he was 1-9 with a 5.11 ERA and a 1.54 WHIP. He has now pitched in 47 games (34 starts) in his first three years in the majors and he is 6-21 with a 5.83 ERA and a 1.60 WHIP.

28-year old righty Matt Daley is going to have to pitch better in 2011 if he wants to stick with the Rockies. Daley pitched in 28 games (0 starts) for the Rockies last year and he was 0-1 with a 4.24 ERA and a 1.59 WHIP. He has now pitched in 85 games (0 starts) in his first two years with the Rockies and he is 1-2 with a 4.24 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP.

29-year old righty Sean White might be a surprise for the Rockies in 2011. He pitched in 38 games (0 starts) for the Mariners last year and he was 0-1 with a 5.24 ERA and a 1.63 WHIP. White has now pitched in 105 games (0 starts) in his first three years in the majors and he is 4-4 with 1 save, a 4.16 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP.
