Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries,The Minors by joelapinski on Friday 22 April 2016 at 6:15 pm

The Colorado Rockies have placed 21-year old righty reliever Miguel Castro on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 18th due to right shoulder inflammation.  Castro has pitched in 6 games (0 starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 0-0 with a 1.50 ERA and a 0.67 WHIP.  He has only given up 2 hits and 2 walks while whiffing 8 batters in his first six innings this year.  This is really going to hurt the Rockies’ bullpen, as Castro is off to a rock solid start in 2016.  The Rockies have activated 24-year old righty starting pitcher Jon Gray to replace Castro on the roster and he will start tonight against the Dodgers at Coors Field.  Gray pitched in 2 games (both starts) on a rehab assignment in A-ball this year and he was 0-1 with a 2.08 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP.  Gray pitched in 9 games (all starts) for the Rockies last year in his first taste of the majors and he was 0-2 with a 5.53 ERA and a 1.62 WHIP.  The Rockies have high hopes for Gray.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Friday 15 April 2016 at 2:46 pm

The Colorado Rockies have placed 29-year old lefty swinging CF Charlie Blackmon on the 15-day disabled list due to turf toe.  Blackmon has played in 8 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 5 for 27 (.185 avg, .575 OPS) with 6 runs scored, 0 homers, 3 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  Gerardo Parra will move from LF to CF until Blackmon is ready to return to action.  34-year old righty swinging Ryan Raburn and 29-year old righty swinging Brandon Barnes will probably split P.T. in LF until Blackmon is ready to return to action.  Raburn has played in 6 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 3 for 9 (.333 avg, 1.300 OPS) with 2 runs scored, 2 homers and 3 RBIs.  Barnes has played in 6 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 3 for 10 (.300 avg, .764 OPS).  The Rockies are blest to have solid backup outfielders, so they should be OK until Blackmon returns to action.

Jason Motte will start the 2016 season on the D.L. for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Wednesday 30 March 2016 at 2:00 pm

33-year old righty reliever Jason Motte will start the 2016 season on the disabled list due to a strained right shoulder.  Motte pitched in 57 games (0 starts) for the Cubs last year and he was 8-1 with 6 saves, a 3.91 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP.  Motte has now pitched in 368 games (0 starts) in his first 7 years in the majors and he is 26-14 with 60 saves, a 3.16 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP.  Motte was competing with 29-year old Jake McGee for the closer’s job this spring, but it’s a moot point now.  McGee will be the closer on Opening Day for the Colorado Rockies.  McGee pitched in 39 games (0 starts) for the Rays last year and he was 1-2 with 6 saves, a 2.41 ERA and a 0.94 WHIP.  McGee has now pitched in 297 games (0 starts) in his first six years in the show and he is 21-11 with 26 saves, a 2.77 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP.  McGee was never the closer for the Rays because they didn’t want to pay him the money he was worth.  He will be a great closer for the Rockies, as he has outstanding stuff.
