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.

The Colorado Rockies need more out of Gerardo Parra

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,In Need of a Slumpbuster by joelapinski on Monday 6 June 2016 at 2:29 pm

When the Colorado Rockies signed 29-year old lefty swinging outfielder Gerardo Parra to a 3-year, $29.5 million dollar contract over the winter, they were expecting him to hit for a high average on the road and at Coors Field, but that hasn’t been the case so far.  Parra has played in 55 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 57 of 216 (.264 avg, .697 OPS) with 29 runs scored, 4 homers, 25 RBIs and 5 stolen bases.  He does lead the National League in doubles with 18 of them.  But, in his last 24 games, Parra is only 18 of 85 (.212 avg, .592 OPS) with 11 runs scored, 1 homer and 6 RBIs.  Parra has played in 28 games on the road for the Rockies so far this year and he is 26 of 118 (.220 avg, .549 OPS) with 14 runs scored, 1 homer, 13 RBIs and 3 stolen bases.  The Rockies need Parra to start hitting on the road and in general, as he is in a slump right now.

The Colorado Rockies activate Nick Hundley off the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Friday 3 June 2016 at 6:27 pm

The Colorado Rockies have activated 32-year old righty swinging catcher Nick Hundley off the D.L.  Hundley has played in 13 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 12 of 44 (.273 avg, .930 OPS) with 3 runs scored, 2 homers and 7 RBIs.  He has also shown a good eye at the plate so far this year as he has walked 10 times while whiffing 9 times.  To make room for Hundley on the active roster, the Rockies have placed 23-year old lefty swinging catcher Tony Wolters on the 7-day concussion D.L.  Wolters has played in 31 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 20 for 92 (.217 avg, .601 OPS) with 14 runs scored, 0 homers, 11 RBIs and 3 stolen bases.  The Rockies have to be glad to have Hundley back, as he adds another offensive threat to the lineup.

Todd Helton kicked butt in his time with the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Blast from the Past,Bloglockers,Front Page,General by joelapinski on Wednesday 1 June 2016 at 2:19 pm

Lefty swinging 1B Todd Helton is one of the best players in Colorado Rockies‘ history, period!  From 2000-2004, Helton was an All-Star every season and he won four Silver Slugger Awards and 3 Gold Glove Awards!  From 1999-2004, Helton averaged 123.5 runs scored, 36.8 homers, 48.2 doubles, 121.3 RBIs and 101.0 walks per year!  His best year for the Rockies came in 2000.  Helton played in 160 games in 2000 for the Rockies and he was 216 of 580 (.372 avg, 1.162 OPS) with 138 runs scored, 59 doubles, 42 homers, 147 RBIs and 5 stolen bases.  Helton also walked 103 times while only whiffing 61 times in 2000!  Helton led the National League in hits (216) and OBP (.463) in 2000.  He led the Major Leagues in batting average (.372), SLG (.698), OPS (1.162), doubles (59) and RBIs (147) in 2000!  Helton was 5th in the MVP voting in 2000 (what a joke) and he also won a Silver Slugger Award and was an All-Star!  Helton played in 2,247 games in his 17 years with the Rockies and he was 2,519 of 7,962 (.316 avg, .953 OPS) with 1,401 runs scored, 369 homers, 1,406 RBIs and 37 stolen bases!  Helton is still the Rockies’ all-time leader in games played (2,247), runs scored (1,401), hits (2,519), doubles (592), homers (369), RBIs (1,406) and walks (1,335).  He is also still tied for #3 in batting average (.316), #2 in OBP (.414), #6 in SLG (.539), #3 in OPS (.953), #4 in triples (37) and #21 in stolen bases (37).  Helton only played in 15 games in the playoffs in his career with the Rockies and he was 12 for 57 (.211 avg, .584 OPS) with 11 runs scored, 0 homers and 4 RBIs.  Helton played his whole career with the Rockies and that is rare these days!
