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.

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.

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 has played in 107 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 115 for 401 (.287 avg, .869 OPS) with 76 runs scored, 21 homers, 76 RBIs and 16 stolen bases.

In July and August, Tulowitzki is 51 for 139 (.367 avg) with 19 runs scored, 8 homers, 29 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. He is trying to will his team to make a late playoff run just like he has done before.

25-year old switch-hitting CF Dexter Fowler has looked good since coming back to the Rockies after a brief demotion to AAA. In his first 20 games since coming back to the Rockies, Fowler is 24 for 75 (.320 avg) with 19 runs scored, 0 homers, 8 RBIs and 5 stolen bases. Fowler has now played in 78 games so far this year and he is 76 for 290 (.262 avg, .759 OPS) with 52 runs scored, 0 homers, 26 RBIs and 7 stolen bases.
