The Colorado Rockies are getting solid work out of their catchers in 2013

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Playing Well by joelapinski on Thursday 4 July 2013 at 11:50 am

24-year old righty swinging catcher Wilin Rosario is doing the heavy lifting behind the plate for the Rockies so far in 2013.  He has played in 70 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 70 for 254 (.276 avg, .800 OPS) with 36 runs scored, 13 homers, 41 RBIs and 4 stolen bases.  When Rosario needs a break, 34-year old Yorvit Torrealba takes over behind the dish.  Torrealba has played in 36 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 29 of 97 (.299 avg, .727 OPS) with 7 runs scored, 0 homers and 9 RBIs.  The Rockies are in good shape behind the plate no matter who is playing on a given day and that’s a good thing.

Michael Cuddyer is red hot at the plate for the Colorado Rockies right now

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Playing Well by joelapinski on Tuesday 2 July 2013 at 6:56 am

34-year old righty swinging RF/1B Michael Cuddyer is on fire at the plate right now for the Colorado Rockies.  Cuddyer has a 27-game hitting streak going on right now.  He has played in 62 games overall this year for the Rockies and he is 84 for 244 (.344 avg, .983 OPS) with 38 runs scored, 14 homers, 48 RBIs and 6 stolen bases.  It’s amazing to me that as hot as Cuddyer has been, he’s still not even half way to Joe DiMaggio’s all-time record of a 56-game hitting streak.  That being said, the Rockies need Cuddyer to keep raking at the plate.

28-year old righty swinging SS Troy Tulowitzki and 34-year old righty swinging RF Michael Cuddyer are off to smoking hot starts with the bats in 2013 for the Rockies.  The Rockies need both of these guys to stay healthy if they are going to be a legit contender in the N.L. West.  Tulowitzki played in only 47 games for the Rockies last year and he was 52 of 181 (.287 avg, .846 OPS) with 33 runs scored, 8 homers, 27 RBIs and 2 stolen bases.  He has already played in 30 games so far this year and he is 32 for 92 (.348 avg, 1.095 OPS) with 17 runs scored, 7 homers and 28 RBIs.  He has also walked more times (15) than he has whiffed (14) so far this year, as he is locked in at the plate right now and the Rockies hope he stays hot.  Cuddyer only played in 104 games for the Rockies last year and he was 93 of 358 (.260 avg, .806 OPS) with 53 runs scored, 16 homers, 58 RBIs and 8 stolen bases.  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.

39-year old lefty swinging 1B Todd Helton looked like he was toast last year for the Rockies.  He played in 69 games for the Rockies in 2012 and he was 57 for 240 (.238 avg, .743 OPS) with 31 runs scored, 7 homers, 37 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  But this year, it has been so far so good for Helton.  He has played in 12 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 11 for 39 (.282 avg, .769 OPS) with 4 runs scored, 1 homer and 10 RBIs.  The Rockies hope that Helton’s back holds up which could allow him to have a nice comeback year in 2013.
