26-year old lefty swinging outfielder Carlos Gonzalez had a huge month in June for the Rockies.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries,Playing Well by chinmusic on Thursday 24 May 2012 at 9:21 am

36-year old righty swinging Ramon Hernandez and 23-year old righty swinging Wilin Rosario are really giving the Rockies a lot of thump with their bats so far this year. Hernandez has played in 27 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 20 for 93 (.215 avg, .658 OPS) with 8 runs scored, 4 homers and 15 RBIs. Wilin Rosario has played in 25 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 15 for 72 (.208 avg, .771 OPS) with 9 runs scored, 6 homers and 15 RBIs. The Rockies will put up with a lack of batting average (.212 combined) as long as their catchers keep hitting bombs as they have combined for 10 homers and 30 RBIs so far this year.

UPDATE: (5/25/2012) – The Rockies have placed Ramon Hernandez on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 24th due to a left hand strain. Wilin Rosario will take over the full time catcher job until Hernandez is ready to return to action. The Rockies have called up 34-year old righty swinging catcher Wil Nieves to back up Rosario. Nieves has played in 28 games in AAA-ball so far this year for the Rockies and he is 26 for 87 (.299 avg, .778 OPS) with 14 runs scored, 3 homers, 14 RBIs and 1 stolen base. Nieves last played in the majors last season with the Brewers. He has played in 282 games in his first 8 years in the majors and he is 166 for 751 (.221 avg, .557 OPS) with 55 runs scored, 5 homers, 73 RBIs and 2 stolen bases.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Playing Well by chinmusic on Monday 30 April 2012 at 9:48 am

26-year old switch-hitting CF Dexter Fowler has been a tease to this point in his career for the Rockies. In his first four years, Fowler has career highs of 84 runs scored, 6 homers and 45 RBIs. But, he is off to a good start for the Rockies with the bat so far this year. He has played in 21 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 17 of 68 (.250 avg, .805 OPS) with 13 runs scored, 4 homers, 10 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. The Rockies hope that Fowler keeps up the good work.

Tyler Colvin is looking good for the Colorado Rockies so far this year

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Playing Well by chinmusic on Sunday 22 April 2012 at 11:58 am

26-year old lefty swinging outfielder Tyler Colvin played in 80 games for the Cubs last year and he was 31 of 206 (.150 avg, .509 OPS) with 17 runs scored, 6 homers and 20 RBIs. The Rockies thought that Colvin was a much better player than he showed last year, so they dealt for him over the winter. So far, so good for Colvin in 2012. He has played in 10 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 9 for 26 (.346 avg, .947 OPS) with 3 runs scored, 1 homer and 5 RBIs. The Rockies hope he keeps up the good work.

Todd Helton gets off to a solid start for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Playing Well by chinmusic on Monday 16 April 2012 at 6:02 pm

38-year old lefty swinging 1B Todd Helton is off to a solid start for the Rockies in 2012. Helton has played in 8 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 8 for 28 (.286 avg, .855 OPS) with 3 runs scored, 1 homer and 8 RBIs. He has only whiffed 1 time so far this year as he is locked in at the plate. Helton will keep adding to his numbers in 2012 as he is the Rockies’ all-time leader in games played (2,062), runs scored (1,332), hits (2,371), doubles (557), homers (348), RBIs (1,316) and walks (1,259). Helton is also #4 in Rockies’ history in triples with 35 of them, but I don’t see him adding too many of those in 2012. The Rockies hope that Helton stays healthy in 2012, which is always an issue with him due to back problems in recent years.

Michael Cuddyer is swinging a hot bat for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Playing Well by chinmusic on Thursday 12 April 2012 at 2:52 pm

33-year old righty swinging RF Michael Cuddyer is off to a good start swinging the bat for the Rockies. Cuddyer has played in 5 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 8 for 20 (.400 avg, 1.229 OPS) with 3 runs scored, 1 homer, 4 RBIs and 1 stolen base. The Rockies need Cuddyer to give them a lot of thump in the middle of the batting order and to give Troy Tulowitzki some protection in the batting order so teams don’t pitch around him in 2012.

Gonzalez is going to be a force with the bat for the Rockies for a long, long time.
