The Colorado Rockies have activated 26-year old righty starting pitcher Tyler Chatwood off the D.L.  Chatwood has pitched in 14 games (all starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 8-4 with a 3.15 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP.  He has given up 76 hits and 29 walks while whiffing 53 batters in his first 85 2/3 innings so far this year.  To make room on the pitching staff for Chatwood, the Rockies have sent 25-year old righty starter/reliever Eddie Butler to AAA.  Butler has pitched in 12 games (9 starts) so far this year for the Rockies and he is 2-5 with a 6.96 ERA and a 1.58 WHIP.  He has given up 71 hits (12 homers) and 15 walks while whiffing 36 batters in his first 54 1/3 innings for the Rockies.  Butler deserved his demotion as he has been getting hit really hard so far this year.

The Colorado Rockies have acquired 27-year old lefty reliever Pat McCoy from the Toronto Blue Jays for cash considerations.  McCoy pitched in 17 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball for the Blue Jays this year and he was 0-1 with a 4.64 ERA and a 1.59 WHIP.  His only experience in the show came back in 2014 for the Detroit Tigers.  McCoy pitched in 14 games (0 starts) for the Tigers in 2014 and he was 0-0 with a 3.86 ERA and a 2.43 WHIP.  It never hurts to take a flier on a lefty reliever with experience in the show.

The Colorado Rockies have placed 26-year old righty starting pitcher Tyler Chatwood on the 15-day D.L. due to a mid-back sprain.  Chatwood has pitched in 14 games (all starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 8-4 with a 3.15 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP.  The Rockies have called up 26-year old righty reliever Scott Oberg to replace Chatwood on the pitching staff.  Oberg pitched in 8 games (0 starts) earlier this year for the Rockies and he was 0-0 with a 4.76 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP.  He has now pitched in 72 games (0 starts) in his first two years with the Rockies and he is 3-4 with 1 save, a 5.04 ERA and a 1.52 WHIP.  The Rockies hope that Chatwood only has to miss a couple of weeks, as he has been by far the best pitcher in their starting rotation so far this year.

It’s decision time for the Colorado Rockies with Jose Reyes

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Wednesday 15 June 2016 at 8:27 am

33-year old switch-hitting SS Jose Reyes “rehab” assignment ends today, so the Colorado Rockies need to either call him up, trade him or designate him for assignment.  Reyes played in 9 games in AAA-ball for the Rockies this year and he is 10 for 33 (.303 avg, .910 OPS) with 7 runs scored, 2 homers, 2 RBIs and 3 stolen bases.  He played in 47 games for the Rockies after coming over from the Blue Jays in the Troy Tulowitzki deal and he was 50 for 193 (.259 avg, .659 OPS) with 21 runs scored, 3 homers, 19 RBIs and 8 stolen bases.  Trevor Story has established himself as the Rockies’ starting SS while Jose Reyes was suspended.  It will be interesting to see what the Rockies decide to do with Reyes.

UPDATE:  The Colorado Rockies have designated Jose Reyes for assignment.

UPDATE II:  The Colorado Rockies have released Jose Reyes.
