The Colorado Rockies hope that Michael Cuddyer can stay healthy in 2013

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Positional Previews for Season by joelapinski on Sunday 24 February 2013 at 2:53 pm

The Rockies hope that 33-year old righty swinging RF Michael Cuddyer can stay healthy in 2013.  He played in 101 games for the Rockies last year and he was 93 of 358 (.260 avg, .806 OPS) with 53 runs scored, 16 homers, 58 RBIs and 8 stolen bases.  He played in 74 games (68 starts) in RF last year and he had 6 assists and 3 errors there while showing below average range.  Cuddyer has now played in 1,240 games in his first 12 years in the majors and he is 1,199 of 4,430 (.271 avg, .795 OPS) with 659 runs scored, 157 homers, 638 RBIs and 60 stolen bases.  27-year old Tyler Colvin, 27-year old Eric Young and 26-year old Charlie Blackmon could get in on the action in 2013 in RF at some point for the Rockies.  Colvin played in 59 games (44 starts) for the Rockies in RF last year and he had 6 assists and 0 errors while showing off really good range there.  Young played in 11 games (all starts) in RF for the Rockies last year and he didn’t have any errors or assists there while showing poor range.  Blackmon played in 17 games (11 starts) in RF last year and he had 2 assists and 0 errors there while showing good range there.

The Colorado Rockies have high hopes for Dexter Fowler in 2013

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Positional Previews for Season by joelapinski on Sunday 24 February 2013 at 2:48 pm

The Rockies have high hopes for 26-year old switch-hitting CF Dexter Fowler in 2013.  Fowler played in 143 games for the Rockies last year and he was 136 of 454 (.300 avg, .863 OPS) with 72 runs scored, 13 homers, 53 RBIs and 12 stolen bases.  Fowler played in 131 games (116 starts) in CF last year for the Rockies and he had 4 assists and 6 errors there while showing off pretty poor range.  Fowler has now played in 548 games in his first five years in the majors and he is 497 of 1,833 (.271 avg, .791 OPS) with 305 runs scored, 28 homers, 168 RBIs and 64 stolen bases.  27-year old switch-hitting Eric Young will probably be Fowler’s top backup in 2013.  Young played in 98 games for the Rockies last year and he was 55 of 174 (.316 avg, .825 OPS) with 36 runs scored, 4 homers, 15 RBIs and 14 stolen bases.  He played in 15 games (12 starts) in CF for the Rockies last year and he had 0 errors or assists there while showing off good range.  Young has now played in 256 games in his first four years in the majors and he is 160 of 601 (.266 avg, .679 OPS) 103 runs scored, 5 homers, 34 RBIs and 62 stolen bases.  27-year old lefty swinging Tyler Colvin played in 38 games (32 starts) for the Rockies in CF last year and he had 2 assists and 3 errors there while showing off outstanding range.  Colvin will likely be needed more at other positions (especially 1B) in 2013, so he’s likely to play a lot less in CF this year.

The Colorado Rockies are hoping for another big year out of Carlos Gonzalez in 2013

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Positional Previews for Season by joelapinski on Sunday 24 February 2013 at 2:39 pm

The Rockies hope that 27-year old lefty swinging Carlos Gonzalez can stay healthy in 2013.  Gonzalez played in 135 games for the Rockies last year and he was 157 of 518 (.303 avg, .881 OPS) with 89 runs scored, 22 homers, 85 RBIs and 20 stolen bases.  Gonzalez played in 131 games (all starts) in LF for the Rockies last year and he had 7 assists and 4 errors there while showing below average range.  Gonzalez has now played in 581 games in his first five years in the majors and he is 648 of 2,166 (.299 avg, .874 OPS) with 376 runs scored, 99 homers, 349 RBIs and 86 stolen bases.  26-year old lefty swinging Charlie Blackmon, 27-year old switch-hitting Eric Young and 27-year old lefty swinging Tyler Colvin could also play LF if needed.  Blackmon played in 42 games for the Rockies last year and he was 32 of 113 (.283 avg, .732 OPS) with 15 runs scored, 2 homers, 9 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  He played in 15 games (12 starts) in LF for the Rockies last year and he had 2 assists and 0 errors there while showing out of this world range.  Blackmon has now played in 69 games in his first two years with the Rockies and he is 57 of 211 (.270 avg, .659 OPS) with 24 runs scored, 3 homers, 17 RBIs and 6 stolen bases.  Young played in 8 games (5 starts) in LF for the Rockies last year and he made o errors and didn’t have any assists there while showing poor range.  Tyler Colvin played in 10 games (5 starts) in LF last year for the Rockies and he had 0 errors or assists while showing pretty terrible range there.
