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.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Thursday 16 May 2013 at 5:08 pm

The Rockies have placed 32-year old lefty starting pitcher Jeff Francis on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 15th, due to a strained left groin.  Francis has pitched in 8 games (all starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 2-3 with a 6.00 ERA and a 1.58 WHIP.  Francis has given up 43 hits (6 homers) and 14 walks while whiffing 21 batters in his first 36 innings so far this year, which isn’t too good.  The Rockies will likely let Francis rest until he’s almost completely healthy, because he has not pitched too well in 2013.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Sunday 12 May 2013 at 12:45 pm

The Rockies have placed 34-year old righty swinging RF Michael Cuddyer on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 9th, due to an inflamed cervical disc.  Cuddyer has played in 31 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 38 for 119 (.319 avg, .963 OPS) with 18 runs scored, 7 homers, 23 RBIs and 3 stolen bases.  The Rockies have called up 26-year old lefty swinging outfielder Charlie Blackmon to replace Cuddyer on the active roster.  Blackmon played in 31 games in AAA-ball this year for the Rockies and he was 37 for 110 (.336 avg, .997 OPS) with 35 runs scored, 3 homers, 21 RBIs and 5 stolen bases.  Blackmon has played in 69 games in his first two years with the Rockies and he is 57 of 211 (.270 avg, .659 OPS) with 24 runs scored, 3 homers, 17 RBIs and 6 stolen bases.  Blackmon will do a solid job with the Rockies, but they are going to miss Cuddyer’s power bat.

The Colorado Rockies place Todd Helton on the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Friday 26 April 2013 at 1:13 pm

The Rockies have placed 39-year old lefty swinging 1B Todd Helton on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 20th due to left forearm inflammation.  Helton has played in 13 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 11 for 41 (.268 avg, .748 OPS) with 4 runs scored, 1 homer and 10 RBIs.  The Rockies have called up 24-year old lefty swinging 1B/3B Ryan Wheeler and he will likely share P.T. with 27-year old righty swinging Jordan Pacheco until Helton returns to action.  Wheeler has played in 1 game for the Rockies so far this year and he is 1 for 4 with a double.  He also played in 15 games in AAA-ball for the Rockies earlier this year and he was 16 for 46 (.348 avg, .973 OPS) with 10 runs scored, 2 homers and 16 RBIs.  Pacheco has played in 13 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 12 for 38 (.316 avg, .692 OPS) with 5 runs scored, 0 homers and 4 RBIs.  The Rockies should be o.k. until Helton returns to action.

The Colorado Rockies place Edwar Cabrera on the 60-day D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Thursday 14 February 2013 at 4:51 pm

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by chinmusic on Thursday 13 September 2012 at 8:47 am

The Rockies have lost 36-year old righty swinging catcher Ramon Hernandez for the rest of the 2012 season due to a ruptured hamstring. Hernandez was expected to be the starting catcher for the Rockies in 2012, but he only played in 52 games this year in which he was 40 for 184 (.217 avg, .601 OPS) with 16 runs scored, 5 homers and 28 RBIs. He has now played in 1,509 games in his first 14 years in the majors and he is 1,335 of 5,057 (.264 avg, .744 OPS) with 576 runs scored, 166 homers, 751 RBIs and 8 stolen bases. Hernandez will return in 2013 as the Rockies’ backup catcher as 23-year old Wilin Rosario has earned the starting job with his play this year.
