Josh Roenicke has pitched well for the Colorado Rockies this year

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Monday 30 July 2012 at 5:31 pm

29-year old righty reliever Josh Roenicke has been rock solid for the Rockies so far this year. He has pitched in 42 games (0 starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 3-0 with a 2.48 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP. Roenicke has given up only 53 hits and he has walked 32 batters in 61 2/3 innings so far this year while whiffing 38 batters. He has been especially good so far in July. He has worked in 8 games (0 starts) so far this month and he is 0-0 with a 1.88 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP.

The Colorado Rockies deal Marco Scutaro to the Giants

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General by chinmusic on Saturday 28 July 2012 at 8:25 am

The Colorado Rockies have dealt 36-year old righty swinging 2B Marco Scutaro and cash to the San Francisco Giants for 23-year old righty swinging 2B Charlie Culberson. Culberson came into this season as the Giants’ #11 prospect according to Baseball America. He played in 6 games earlier this year for the Giants and he was 3 for 22 (.136 avg, .273 OPS) with 1 RBI. He also played in 91 games in AAA-ball for the Giants this year and he was 83 of 351 (.236 avg, .679 OPS) with 53 runs scored, 10 homers, 53 RBIs and 8 stolen bases. He might get a shot to replace Scutaro as the Rockies’ starting 2B right away. Scutaro played in 94 games for the Rockies this year and he was 101 of 373 (.271 avg, .684 OPS) with 47 runs scored, 4 homers, 30 RBIs and 7 stolen bases. The Rockies got pretty good value for Scutaro.

The Colorado Rockies need to rebuild

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, If I Were GM by chinmusic on Friday 27 July 2012 at 8:04 pm

The Colorado Rockies need to start the rebuilding of the team this weekend. They really lack any kind of starting pitching and that’s what they should try to get back in every deal they make. I know the Rockies don’t want to deal Michael Cuddyer, Rafael Betancourt and Matt Belisle….but they should move them before the trade deadline. They could get a nice return for that trio. The Rockies are also going to deal infielder Marco Scutaro as quite a few teams need help in the middle infield. Ramon Hernandez, Eric Young, Jeff Francis and Josh Roenicke could also fetch the Rockies some minor prospects. The Rockies aren’t going to compete for the playoffs any time soon with the players they have, so it makes sense to make some deals with an eye on the future.

Josh Rutledge is off to a good start for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Playing Well by chinmusic on Thursday 26 July 2012 at 4:45 pm

23-year old righty swinging SS Josh Rutledge came into this season as the Rockies’ #10 prospect according to Baseball America. He has now taken over at SS with Troy Tulowitzki out due to groin surgery. Rutledge has played in 12 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 16 for 45 (.356 avg, .997 OPS) with 6 runs scored, 1 homer, 6 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. He played in 87 games earlier this year in AA-ball for the Rockies in which he was 109 of 356 (.306 avg, .846 OPS) with 57 runs scored, 13 homers, 35 RBIs and 14 stolen bases. Rutledge has played 2B in the minors, so he could earn a shot to start at 2B for the Rockies in 2013, if he continues to play well this year.

The Colorado Rockies sign Chris Pettit

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General by chinmusic on Thursday 26 July 2012 at 4:39 pm

The Rockies have signed 27-year old righty swinging outfielder Chris Pettit to a minor league deal. Pettit played in 63 games in AA-ball earlier this year for the Seattle Mariners in which he was 60 for 215 (.279 avg, .809 OPS) with 30 runs scored, 4 homers, 26 RBIs and 7 stolen bases. Pettit has played in 11 games in his first two years in the majors and he is 2 for 7 (.286 avg, .571 OPS) with 2 runs scored. He might be able to help the Rockies off the bench later this year if the need arises.

The Colorado Rockies place 1B Jason Giambi on the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Injuries by chinmusic on Wednesday 25 July 2012 at 10:10 am

The Rockies have placed 41-year old lefty swinging 1B Jason Giambi on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 21st due to a viral syndrome. Giambi has played in 47 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 19 of 79 (.241 avg, .709 OPS) with 7 runs scored, 1 homer and 8 RBIs. He has now played in 217 games in his first four years with the Rockies and he is 103 of 410 (.251 avg, .837 OPS) with 48 runs scored, 22 homers, 86 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. This hurts any chances of the Rockies dealing Giambi before the trade deadline.

Jeff Francis is looking pretty solid so far in July for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Friday 20 July 2012 at 1:37 pm

31-year old lefty starting pitcher Jeff Francis is looking solid so far in July for the Rockies. Francis has started 3 games so far in July for the Rockies and he is 1-1 with a 3.60 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP. He has now pitched in 8 games (all starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 2-2 with a 4.76 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP. Francis is now #3 in wins (57) and strikeouts (623) in Colorado Rockies’ history and he’s going to keep moving up the list as long as he keeps pitching well.

The Colorado Rockies acquire Jonathan Sanchez from the Royals

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General by chinmusic on Friday 20 July 2012 at 11:05 am

The Colorado Rockies have acquired 29-year old lefty starting pitcher Jonathan Sanchez from the Kansas City Royals for 33-year old righty starting pitcher Jeremy Guthrie. Sanchez was awful for the Royals this year. He pitched in 12 games (all starts) for the Royals this year and he was 1-6 with a 7.76 ERA and a 2.04 WHIP. He gave up 65 hits (8 homers) and he walked an amazingly awful 44 batters in only 53 1/3 innings for the Royals this year while whiffing 36 batters. Sanchez has now pitched in 186 games (130 starts) in his first seven years in the majors and he is 39-52 with a 4.50 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP. Jeremy Guthrie was awful for the Rockies this year. He pitched in 19 games (15 starts) for the Rockies this year and he was 3-9 with a 6.35 ERA and a 1.69 WHIP. Guthrie gave up 112 hits (a league leading 21 homers) and he walked 31 batters while whiffing 45 batters in 90 2/3 innings pitched for the Rockies. The Rockies are hoping that a return to the National League will spark Sanchez into getting back to the pitcher he was with the rival San Francisco Giants.

The Colorado Rockies place a couple of infielders on the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Injuries by chinmusic on Tuesday 17 July 2012 at 11:59 pm

The Rockies have placed 27-year old switch-hitter Jonathan Herrera and 26-year old righty swinging Chris Nelson on the 15-day D.L. retroactive to July 16th. Herrera has an infection in his right wrist and Nelson has an irregular heartbeat. Herrera has played in 45 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 30 for 122 (.246 avg, .678 OPS) with 20 runs scored, 3 homers, 6 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. Nelson has played in 58 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 43 of 168 (.256 avg, .735 OPS) with 18 runs scored, 5 homers, 23 RBIs and 1 stolen base. The Rockies have called up 24-year old righty swinging infielder D.J. LaMahieu and 27-year old righty swinging 1B/OF Andrew Brown to replace Nelson and Herrera on the active roster. LeMahieu played in 19 games earlier this year for the Rockies and he was 8 for 39 (.205 avg, .493 OPS) with 3 runs scored, 0 homers, 2 RBIs and 1 stolen base. Andrew Brown has played in 86 games in AAA-ball for the Rockies this year and he was 106 of 334 (.317 avg, .977 OPS) with 70 runs scored, 20 homers, 84 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. Brown got his first action in the majors last year with the Cardinals. Brown played in 11 games for the Cardinals last year and he was 4 for 22 (.182 avg, .409 OPS) with 1 run scored, 0 homers and 3 RBIs.

Drew Pomeranz has been solid this year for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Tuesday 17 July 2012 at 11:52 pm

23-year old lefty starting pitcher Drew Pomeranz has been pitching solid baseball overall for the Rockies so far this year. He has pitched in 8 games (all starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 1-4 with a 3.79 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP. Pomeranz has only given up 33 hits while whiffing 32 batters in his first 40 1/3 innings for the Rockies this year, which is impressive, but he has also walked 22 batters and that’s too many. Pomeranz has now pitched in 12 games (all starts) in his first two years with the Rockies and he is 3-5 with a 4.30 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP. The Rockies need Pomeranz to trust his stuff and tighten his control to reach his full potential.
