Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Friday 28 June 2013 at 7:24 am

The Rockies have signed 42-year old righty reliever/starter Miguel Batista to a minor league deal.  Batista pitched in 8 games (7 starts) earlier this year in AAA-ball for the Blue Jays and he was 1-2 with a 8.36 ERA and a 2.04 WHIP.  Batista last pitched in the majors in 2012 with the Mets and Braves.  He has pitched in 658 games (248 starts) in his first 18 years in the majors and he is 102-115 with 41 saves, a 4.48 ERA and a 1.49 WHIP.  Batista will start his time in AAA-ball for the Rockies.  If he has anything left in the gas tank, Batista could get a shot later this year for the Rockies.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Wednesday 26 June 2013 at 7:26 am

23-year old righty starting pitcher Dan Winkler has been razor sharp for the Rockies so far in 2013.  Winkler has pitched in 15 games (all starts) for the Rockies in A-ball this year and he is 10-2 with a 1.99 ERA and a 0.78 WHIP.  Winkler has only given up 47 hits and 24 walks while whiffing 105 batters in his first 90 2/3 innings so far this year which is pretty darn impressive.  Winkler has now pitched in 52 games (all starts) in his first three years in the minors and he is 25-15 with a 3.59 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP.  Winkler could get promoted in the very near future if he keeps pitching so well.

The Rockies have released 26-year old righty reliever Brett Jacobson.  Jacobson pitched in 10 games (1 start) in AAA-ball for the Rockies this year and he was 1-1 with a 9.00 ERA and a 2.53 WHIP.  Jacobson gave up 17 hits and he walked an amazingly awful 26 batters while whiffing 10 of them in 17 innings this year!  Jacobson has now pitched in 175 games (19 starts) in his first six years in the minors and he is 18-18 with 12 saves, a 4.39 ERA and a 1.49 WHIP.  This is no loss moving forward for the Rockies.

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Friday 21 June 2013 at 3:56 pm

The Rockies have designated 30-year old righty reliever Logan Kensing for assignment.  Kensing pitched in 19 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball for the Rockies this year and he was 0-1 with 7 saves, a 2.57 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP.  He also pitched in 1 game out of the pen for the Rockies this year, working 2/3 of an inning without giving up any hits or runs while walking 1 batter and whiffing 1.  Kensing has now pitched in 135 games (3 starts) in his first seven years in the majors and he is 8-9 with 2 saves, a 5.79 ERA and a 1.63 WHIP.  The Rockies won’t sweat over losing Kensing if he is claimed on waivers.

UPDATE:  (6/25/2013) – The Rockies outright Kensing to AAA.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Monday 17 June 2013 at 10:33 am

35-year old righty starting pitcher Roy Oswalt could make his Rockies’ debut this Thursady against the Washington Nationals.  He has pitched in 5 games (all starts) in AA-ball for the Rockies this year and he is 3-2 with a 2.16 ERA and a 0.93 WHIP.  He gave up 24 hits and 7 walks while whiffing 25 batters in his first 33 1/3 innings in the minors so far this year.  Oswalt has pitched in 356 games (335 starts) in his first 12 years in the majors and he is 163-96 with a 3.28 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP.  Oswalt could give the Rockies’ rotation a nice boost.

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Saturday 15 June 2013 at 3:46 pm

The Rockies have dealt 20-year old righty swinging outfielder Carl Thomore to the White Sox for cash considerations.  Thomore didn’t play in any games in the minors this year for the Rockies.  He played in 58 games in his two years in the minors for the Rockies and he was 40 for 204 (.196 avg, .617 OPS) with 36 runs scored, 4 homers, 31 RBIs and 4 stolen bases.  This is not much of a loss for the Rockies, as they didn’t like what they saw out of him in his first two years in the minors.

The Colorado Rockies call up Josh Rutledge

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Friday 14 June 2013 at 9:13 pm

The Colorado Rockies have called up 24-year old righty swinging SS/2B Josh Rutledge to replace Troy Tulowitzki on the active roster.  Rutledge played in 43 games earlier this year for the Rockies and he was 38 of 157 (.242 avg, .655 OPS) with 26 runs scored, 5 homers, 13 RBIs and 5 stolen bases.  He didn’t hang his head when he got sent to AAA.  He played in 17 games in AAA-ball after his demotion and he was 24 of 69 (.348 avg, 1.003 OPS) with 13 runs scored, 2 homers, 10 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  Rutledge will likely play a lot of SS until Tulowitzki is ready to return to action.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Friday 7 June 2013 at 7:28 am

26-year old righty swinging 1B Kiel Roling is off to a solid start in AA-ball this year for the Rockies.  He has played in 49 games in AA-ball so far this year and he is 48 of 176 (.273 avg, .923 OPS) with 31 runs scored, 14 homers and 46 RBIs.  Roling has now played in 443 games in his first six years in the minors and he is 432 of 1,593 (.271 avg, .827 OPS) with 251 runs scored, 79 homers, 275 RBIs and 4 stolen bases.  Roling could move up to AAA-ball in the near future if he keeps hitting well.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Saturday 11 May 2013 at 8:14 am

19-year old lefty swinging outfielder David Dahl came into this season as the Rockies’ #2 prospect according to Baseball America.  Dahl has played in 10 games in A-ball so far this year and he is 11 for 40 (.275 avg, .735 OPS) with 9 runs scored, 0 homers, 7 RBIs and 2 stolen bases.  Dahl has now played in 77 games in his first two years in the minors and he is 117 of 320 (.366 avg, 1.009 OPS) with 71 runs scored, 9 homers, 64 RBIs and 14 stolen bases.  The Rockies are likely going to take things slowly with Dahl moving forward, but he does have a huge upside.
