Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by chinmusic on Thursday 5 April 2012 at 11:18 am

The Rockies have placed 25-year old lefty swinging outfielder Charlie Blackmon on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 26th due to turf toe. Blackmon played in 27 games for the Rockies last year and he was 25 of 98 (.255 avg, .573 OPS) with 9 runs scored, 1 homer, 8 RBIs and 5 stolen bases. He also played in 58 games in AAA-ball last year in which he was 82 of 243 (.337 avg, .965 OPS) with 49 runs scored, 10 homers, 49 RBIs and 12 stolen bases. The Rockies should be o.k. without Blackmon to start the 2012 season, but he might help them later on in the season when he gets healthy.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by chinmusic on Tuesday 3 April 2012 at 8:15 pm

27-year old lefty starter/reliever Josh Outman will start the 2012 season on the 15-day D.L. due to an oblique injury. He pitched in 13 games (9 starts) for the A’s last year and he was 3-5 with a 3.70 ERA and a 1.46 WHIP. He has now pitched in 33 games (25 starts) in his first three years in the majors and he is 8-8 with a 3.75 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP. This will hurt the Rockies’ bullpen a little bit until Outman is ready to return to action as he has a live arm.

The Colorado Rockies lose Drew Pomeranz for the year

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries,The Minors by chinmusic on Monday 22 August 2011 at 10:01 am

22-year old lefty starting pitcher Drew Pomeranz will miss the rest of the year due to an emergency appendectomy. He was the key player the Rockies got in return for Ubaldo Jimenez. Pomeranz started 1 game in AA-ball for the Rockies this year and he was the winning pitcher as he worked the first 7 innings allowing only 2 hits, walking no one, whiffing 4 batters and giving up no runs. Pomeranz has pitched in 19 games (all starts) in A+AA-ball this year and he was 4-3 with a 1.84 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP. He only gave up 68 hits while whiffing 116 batters in his first 98 innings of his minor league career. The Rockies will take it slowly with Pomeranz because his future is very bright.

UPDATE: (9/6/2011) – The Rockies have called up Drew Pomeranz as he recovered quickly from his surgery.

The Colorado Rockies place Huston Street on the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by chinmusic on Friday 12 August 2011 at 7:38 pm

The Rockies have placed 28-year old righty closer Huston Street on the 15-day disabled list due to a mild triceps strain. Street has pitched in 53 games (0 starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 1-3 with 29 saves, a 4.06 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP. 36-year old righty Rafael Betancourt will function as the Rockies’ closer until Street returns to action. Betancourt has pitched in 53 games (0 starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 2-0 with 1 save, a 3.61 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP. It will be interesting to see how Betancourt reacts to closing as he didn’t do too well in Cleveland when the Indians gave him a shot. The Rockies hope that Street will only miss a couple of weeks.

Juan Nicasio could miss the rest of the 2011 season for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by chinmusic on Saturday 6 August 2011 at 3:47 pm

24-year old righty starting pitcher Juan Nicasio is likely to miss the rest of the 2011 season after his injury last night. Nicasio was hit by and Ian Desmond line drive in the back of his neck last night. He had surgery today to repair a fractured vertebrae earlier today and there is no timetable for him to return to action, but he’s likely going to miss the rest of the 2011 season. Nicasio started 13 games this year in his first taste of the majors and he was 4-4 with a 4.14 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP. The thing that really stood out about Nicasio has been his control as he only walked 18 batters in his first 71 2/3 innings of his major league career. He has a bright future with the Rockies.
