Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Sunday 19 June 2016 at 2:16 pm

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.

26-year old righty starting pitcher Tyler Chatwood missed last year due to injury for the Colorado Rockies, but he has come back even better in 2016.  He has pitched in 13 games (all starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 8-4 with a 2.89 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP.  He has given up 72 hits and 26 walks while whiffing 51 batters in his first 84 innings this year.  Chatwood has now pitched in 56 games (49 starts) in his first 4 years with the Rockies and he is 22-15 with 1 save, a 3.71 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP.  Chatwood is currently #19 in wins (22) in Rockies’ history.  He is also #22 in games started (49), #33 in innings pitched (284) and #37 in strikeouts (178) in Rockies’ history!  The Rockies acquired Chatwood on November 30th, 2011 with the Los Angeles Angels for catcher Chris Iannetta.  It looks like the Rockies won that trade.

The Colorado Rockies have placed 29-year old lefty swinging outfielder Gerardo Parra on the 15-day disabled list due to a sprained left ankle.  He was injured in a collision with SS Trevor Story in yesterday’s game.  Parra has played in 63 games so far this year for the Rockies and he is 64 of 243 (.263 avg, .698 OPS) with 32 runs scored, 5 homers, 27 RBIs and 6 stolen bases.  35-year year old righty swinging Ryan Raburn will see a bump in P.T. while Parra is out of action.  Raburn has played in 49 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 26 of 101 (.257 avg, .838 OPS) with 14 runs scored, 6 homers and 16 RBIs.

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.

The Colorado Rockies have called up 26-year old lefty starting pitcher Tyler Anderson to replace Jake McGee (DL) on the active roster.  Anderson pitched in 6 games (all starts) in A+AA+AAA-ball so far this year and he was 2-2 with a 2.35 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP.  He has now pitched in 65 games (all starts) in his first four years in the minors and he is 25-12 with a 2.38 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP.  Anderson has some impressive minor league numbers, so it will be interesting to see how he does in his first time in the show.

The Colorado Rockies have placed 29-year old lefty reliever Jake McGee on the 15-day disabled list due to left knee inflammation.  McGee has pitched in 24 games (0 starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 0-2 with 15 saves, a 4.98 ERA and a 1.57 WHIP.  The Rockies will likely use 33-year old righty reliever Jason Motte and 23-year righty Carlos Estevez to close until McGee returns to action.  Motte has pitched in 6 games (0 starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 0-0 with a 3.00 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP.  Estevez has pitched in 21 games (0 start) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 1-3 with a 4.66 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP.

Brendan Rodgers is a solid looking prospect for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Tuesday 7 June 2016 at 11:56 am

19-year old righty swinging SS Brendan Rodgers came into this season as the Colorado Rockies‘ #3 prospect according to Baseball America.  Rodgers was the #3 overall pick (1st round) of the 2015 Amateur Draft.  Rodgers has played in 42 games in A-ball so far this year and he is 50 for 173 (.289 avg, .856 OPS) with 36 runs scored, 8 homers, 34 RBIs and 2 stolen bases.  Rodgers has now played in 79 games in his first two years in the minors and he is 89 of 316 (.282 avg, .812 OPS) with 58 runs scored, 11 homers, 54 RBIs and 6 stolen bases.  Rodgers might have to change positions down the road, as Trevor Story in looking like the real deal for the Rockies, but they will cross that bridge when they get to it.
