Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Pitching BP by chinmusic on Thursday 8 September 2011 at 1:53 pm

Rogers has allowed 89 hits in his first 69 innings pitched this year, while also walking 38 batters and whiffing 55. Those are very unimpressive numbers! Rogers has now pitched in 43 games (30 starts) in his first three years with the Rockies and he is 8-8 with a 6.14 ERA and a 1.74 WHIP. He might be running out of time with the Rockies.

Alex White has not looked good for the Colorado Rockies so far

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Pitching BP by chinmusic on Tuesday 6 September 2011 at 10:00 am

23-year old righty starting pitcher Alex White has had a rough time so far for the Rockies….but it’s really, really early. White has pitched in 3 games (all starts) for the Rockies and he is 1-1 with a 7.41 ERA and a 1.71 WHIP. He has now pitched in 6 games (all starts) for the Indians and Rockies and he is 2-1 with a 5.63 ERA and a 1.63 WHIP. White has had issues with his control as he has walked 19 batters in his first 32 innings in the majors. If he tightens up his control a bit, he will be fine for the Rockies.
