The Colorado Rockies place Rafael Betancourt on the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Injuries by joelapinski on Friday 23 August 2013 at 5:38 pm

The Rockies have placed 38-year old righty closer Rafael Betancourt on the 15-day disabled list, due to a right elbow sprain.  He has pitched in 32 games (0 starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 2-5 with 16 saves, a 4.08 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP.  This could be a season ending injury for Betancourt.  25-year old lefty Rex Brothers will replace Betancourt as the Rockies’ closer once again.  Brothers has pitched in 57 games (0 starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 2-0 with 11 saves, a 1.51 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP.  The Rockies should be o.k. without Betancourt, as Brothers has really pitched well for them so far this year.

UPDATE:  (8/27/2013) - Rafael Betancourt has a torn UCL in his right elbow and he needs Tommy John Surgery.  He will miss the rest of this season and the entire 2014 season, if he decides to keep pitching.

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Injuries by joelapinski on Thursday 8 August 2013 at 9:56 am

The Rockies have placed 23-year old righty starting pitcher Tyler Chatwood on the 15-day disabled list due to right elbow inflammation.  Chatwood has pitched in 15 games (all starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 7-4 with a 3.15 ERA and a 1.39 WHIP.  The Rockies have called up 28-year old righty starting pitcher Jeff Manship and he will replace Chatwood in the rotation.  He has pitched in 24 games (17 starts) in AAA-ball for the Rockies this year and he is 6-8 with a 4.85 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP.  Manship last pitched in the majors in 2012 for the Twins.  Manship has pitched in 41 games (6 starts) in his first four years in the majors and he is 3-2 with a 6.20 ERA and a 1.62 WHIP.  The Rockies hope that Chatwood only has to miss a couple of weeks as he has pitched well in 2013 for them.

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Injuries by joelapinski on Tuesday 9 July 2013 at 6:59 am

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Injuries by joelapinski on Tuesday 2 July 2013 at 4:49 pm

The Rockies have placed 27-year old switch-hitting CF Dexter Fowler on the 15-day disabled list due to a right wrist injury.  Fowler played in 18 games in June for the Rockies and he was 20 for 65 (.308 avg, .884 OPS) with 13 runs scored, 2 homers, 7 RBIs and 3 stolen bases.  Fowler hasn’t played in about a week due to his wrist problem, so it made sense to D.L. him.  Fowler has played in 70 games overall this year for the Rockies and he is 75 of 258 (.291 avg, .863 OPS) with 49 runs scored, 10 homers, 26 RBIs and 12 stolen bases.  The Rockies hope that Fowler will only miss a couple of weeks.

The Colorado Rockies place Troy Tulowitzki on the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Injuries by joelapinski on Friday 14 June 2013 at 8:31 am

The Rockies have placed 28-year old righty swinging SS Troy Tulowitzki on the 15-day disabled list and he will miss the next 4-6 weeks due to a broken rib on his right side.  He has played in 61 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 77 for 222 (.347 avg, 1.048 OPS) with 41 runs scored, 16 homers and 51 RBIs.  Tulowitzki has now played in 805 games in his first 8 years with the Rockies and he is 899 of 3,035 (.296 avg, .881 OPS) with 512 runs scored, 146 homers, 521 RBIs and 53 stolen bases.  This is a HUGE blow to the Rockies as Tulowitzki was the best SS in all of baseball to this point in the 2013 season.
