Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Saturday 15 June 2013 at 3:46 pm

The Rockies have dealt 20-year old righty swinging outfielder Carl Thomore to the White Sox for cash considerations.  Thomore didn’t play in any games in the minors this year for the Rockies.  He played in 58 games in his two years in the minors for the Rockies and he was 40 for 204 (.196 avg, .617 OPS) with 36 runs scored, 4 homers, 31 RBIs and 4 stolen bases.  This is not much of a loss for the Rockies, as they didn’t like what they saw out of him in his first two years in the minors.

The Colorado Rockies call up Josh Rutledge

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Friday 14 June 2013 at 9:13 pm

The Colorado Rockies have called up 24-year old righty swinging SS/2B Josh Rutledge to replace Troy Tulowitzki on the active roster.  Rutledge played in 43 games earlier this year for the Rockies and he was 38 of 157 (.242 avg, .655 OPS) with 26 runs scored, 5 homers, 13 RBIs and 5 stolen bases.  He didn’t hang his head when he got sent to AAA.  He played in 17 games in AAA-ball after his demotion and he was 24 of 69 (.348 avg, 1.003 OPS) with 13 runs scored, 2 homers, 10 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  Rutledge will likely play a lot of SS until Tulowitzki is ready to return to action.

The Colorado Rockies DFA Eric Young Jr.

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Trades by joelapinski on Wednesday 12 June 2013 at 10:51 pm

The Rockies have designated 28-year old switch-hitting 2B/OF Eric Young Jr. for assignment.  Young played in 57 games for the Rockies this year and he was 40 for 165 (.242 avg, .641 OPS) with 22 runs scored, 1 homer, 6 RBIs and 8 stolen bases.  Young played in 313 games in his five years with the Rockies and he was 200 for 766 (.261 avg, .671 OPS) with 125 runs scored, 6 homers, 40 RBIs and 70 stolen bases.  Young is #8 in Rockies’ history in stolen bases with 70 of them.  The Rockies should look to deal Young in the next few days, because I don’t think he will clear waivers.  Young won’t have too hard of a time finding a new team if he clears waivers.

UPDATE:  (6/19/2013) – The Rockies have dealt Eric Young to the New York Mets for 26-year old righty starting pitcher Collin McHugh.  McHugh pitched in 3 games (1 start) for the Mets earlier this year and he was 0-1 with a 10.29 ERA and a 2.14 WHIP.  He also pitched in 9 games (all starts) in AAA-ball this year and he was 3-2 with a 2.87 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP.  McHugh has now pitched in 11 games (5 starts) in his first two years in the majors and he is 0-5 with a 8.26 ERA and a 1.77 WHIP.  McHugh came into this season as the Mets’ #24 prospect according to Baseball America, so he might benefit from a chance of scenery.

The Colorado Rockies DFA Jon Garland

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General by joelapinski on Saturday 8 June 2013 at 4:01 pm

The Rockies have designated 33-year old righty starting pitcher Jon Garland for assignment.  Garland pitched in 12 games (all starts) for the Rockies this year and he was 4-6 with a 5.82 ERA and a 1.59 WHIP.  Garland got hit hard this year as he gave up 85 hits (9 homers) while walking 23 batters and whiffing 32 of them in 68 innings pitched for the Rockies.  Garland has now pitched in 365 games (342 starts) in his first 13 years in the majors and he is 136-125 with 1 save, a 4.37 ERA and a 1.39 WHIP.  This isn’t much of a loss moving forward for the Rockies.

UPDATE:  (6/10/2013) – The Rockies have released Jon Garland.

The Colorado Rockies acquire infielder Drew Garcia from the White Sox

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General by joelapinski on Monday 27 May 2013 at 6:46 am

The Rockies have acquired 27-year old switch-hitting 2B/SS Drew Garcia from the White Sox for a player to be named later.  Garcia has played in 24 games in AAA-ball so far this year and he is 16 for 72 (.222 avg, .615 OPS) with 3 runs scored, 0 homers and 12 RBIs.  Garcia has now played in 587 games in his first six years in the minors and he is 553 of 2,187 (.253 avg, .686 OPS) with 275 runs scored, 39 homers, 319 RBIs and 20 stolen bases.  Garcia will have to play well in AAA-ball if he wants to get his first shot at the show at some point in 2013 for the Rockies.

The Colorado Rockies send Josh Rutledge to AAA

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General by joelapinski on Thursday 23 May 2013 at 6:34 am

The Rockies have sent 24-year old righty swinging 2B Josh Rutledge to AAA.  He played in 43 games for the Rockies this year and he was 38 for 157 (.242 avg, .655 OPS) with 26 runs scored, 5 homers, 13 RBIs and 5 stolen bases.  24-year old righty swinging D.J. LaMahieu will take over as the starting 2B for the Rockies.  He has played in 7 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 7 for 17 (.412 avg, .974 OPS) with 2 runs scored, 0 homers, 2 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  Rutledge could work his way back to Denver if he plays well in the minors, but he better hope that LaMahieu doesn’t stake his claim to the starting 2B job in the mean time.

The Colorado Rockies DFA Reid Brignac

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General by joelapinski on Thursday 16 May 2013 at 5:10 pm

The Rockies have designated 27-year old lefty swinging infielder Reid Brignac for assignment.  Brignac played in 29 games for the Rockies this year and he was 12 for 48 (.250 avg, .669 OPS) with 4 runs scored, 1 homer and 6 RBIs.  Brignac has now played in 285 games in his first six years in the majors and he is 164 of 719 (.228 avg, .591 OPS) with 73 runs scored, 11 homers, 73 RBIs and 8 stolen bases.  Brignac isn’t likely to clear waivers, so the Rockies should try to deal him.

The Colorado Rockies sign Sean Gallagher

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General by joelapinski on Tuesday 14 May 2013 at 4:38 pm

The Rockies have signed 27-year old righty starter/reliever Sean Gallagher to a minor league deal.  Gallagher pitched in 4 games (all starts) in Independent ball this year and he was 2-0 with a 2.05 ERA and a 0.77 WHIP.  Gallagher last pitched in the majors back in 2010 for the Padres and Pirates.  He has pitched in 91 games (23 starts) in his first four years in the majors and he is 10-10 with 1 save, a 5.64 ERA and a 1.68 WHIP.  Gallagher might get back to the show if he pitches well in the minors for the Rockies.

The Colorado Rockies sign Roy Oswalt to a minor league deal

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General by joelapinski on Thursday 2 May 2013 at 5:51 pm

The Rockies have signed 35-year old righty starting pitcher Roy Oswalt to a minor league deal.  He pitched in 17 games (9 starts) for the Rangers last year and he was 4-3 with a 5.80 ERA and a 1.53 WHIP.  Oswalt has now pitched in 356 games (335 starts) in his first 12 years in the majors and he is 163-96 with a 3.28 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP.  The Rockies aren’t going to rush Oswalt too much, but I really like this signing for them.  He could really help them some time in June until the end of the 2013 season.

The Colorado Rockies have acquired Jose Monzon from the Astros

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Trades by joelapinski on Thursday 2 May 2013 at 7:47 am

The Rockies have acquired 21-year old righty swinging outfielder Jose Monzon from the Astros as the player to be named later to complete the deal that also brought Wilton Lopez to Denver.  Monzon has yet to play in a game in the minors in 2013.  He played in 45 games in Rookie-ball last year for the Astros and he was 25 for 117 (.214 avg, .583 OPS) with 16 runs scored, 2 homers, 11 RBIs and 4 stolen bases.  Monzon has now played in 183 games in his first four years in the minors and he is 124 of 582 (.213 avg, .610 OPS) with 91 runs scored, 6 homers, 50 RBIs and 34 stolen bases.  Don’t expect to see Jose Monzon in Houston for a long, long time….if he ever makes it there.
