Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General by joelapinski on Wednesday 26 June 2013 at 6:35 pm

The Rockies have signed 27-year old lefty swinging infielder Reid Brignac to a minor league deal and he will report to AAA.  Brignac played in 29 games earlier this year for the Rockies and he was 12 of 48 (.250 avg, .669 OPS) with 4 runs scored, 1 homer and 6 RBIs.  Brignac has played in 46 games overall this year for the Rockies and Yankees in which he is 17 for 92 (.185 avg, .480 OPS) with 5 runs scored, 1 homer and 6 RBIs.  Brignac has played in 302 games in his first six years in the majors and he is 169 for 763 (.221 avg, .573 OPS) with 74 runs scored, 11 homers, 73 RBIs and 8 stolen bases.  If Brignac plays well in AAA, he will get another shot with the Rockies later this year.

The Colorado Rockies release Brett Jacobson

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Monday 24 June 2013 at 10:23 am

The Rockies have released 26-year old righty reliever Brett Jacobson.  Jacobson pitched in 10 games (1 start) in AAA-ball for the Rockies this year and he was 1-1 with a 9.00 ERA and a 2.53 WHIP.  Jacobson gave up 17 hits and he walked an amazingly awful 26 batters while whiffing 10 of them in 17 innings this year!  Jacobson has now pitched in 175 games (19 starts) in his first six years in the minors and he is 18-18 with 12 saves, a 4.39 ERA and a 1.49 WHIP.  This is no loss moving forward for the Rockies.

The Colorado Rockies acquire Hisanori Takahashi from the Cubs

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Trades by joelapinski on Saturday 22 June 2013 at 2:04 pm

The Rockies have acquired 38-year old lefty reliever Hisanori Takahashi from the Cubs for a player to be named later.  He pitched in 3 games (0 starts) earlier this year for the Cubs and he was 0-0 with a 6.00 ERA and a 1.67 WHIP.  He also pitched in 20 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball for the Cubs this year and he was 1-0 with a 1.98 ERA and a 0.84 WHIP.  Takahashi has now pitched in 168 games (12 starts) in his first four years in the majors and he is 14-12 with 10 saves, a 3.99 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP.  I don’t think he will be in AAA-ball long for the Rockies if he looks good.

The Colorado Rockies DFA Logan Kensing

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Friday 21 June 2013 at 3:56 pm

The Rockies have designated 30-year old righty reliever Logan Kensing for assignment.  Kensing pitched in 19 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball for the Rockies this year and he was 0-1 with 7 saves, a 2.57 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP.  He also pitched in 1 game out of the pen for the Rockies this year, working 2/3 of an inning without giving up any hits or runs while walking 1 batter and whiffing 1.  Kensing has now pitched in 135 games (3 starts) in his first seven years in the majors and he is 8-9 with 2 saves, a 5.79 ERA and a 1.63 WHIP.  The Rockies won’t sweat over losing Kensing if he is claimed on waivers.

UPDATE:  (6/25/2013) – The Rockies outright Kensing to AAA.

The Colorado Rockies DFA Chris Volstad

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General by joelapinski on Thursday 20 June 2013 at 5:55 pm

The Rockies have designated 26-year old righty starter/reliever Chris Volstad for assignment.  Volstad pitched in 10 games (9 starts) in AAA-ball for the Rockies this year and he was 4-1 with a 4.79 ERA and a 1.66 WHIP.  He also pitched in 6 games (0 starts) for the Rockies earlier this year and he was 0-0 with a 10.80 ERA and a 2.40 WHIP.  Volstad has now pitched in 130 games (123 starts) in his first six years in the majors and he is 35-51 with a 4.94 ERA and a 1.45 WHIP.  This won’t be much of a loss for the Rockies.  They needed Volstad’s roster spot for Roy Oswalt, who is starting tonight for the Rockies.

UPDATE:  (6/23/2013) – The Rockies have outrighted Chris Volstad to AAA.

The Colorado Rockies deal Carl Thomore to the White Sox

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.
