Coty Woods has been incredible in the minors for the Colorado Rockies so far in 2012

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by chinmusic on Sunday 15 July 2012 at 12:51 pm

24-year old righty reliever Coty Woods came into this season as the Rockies’ #29 prospect according to Baseball America. Woods has pitched in 39 games (0 starts) in AA+AAA-ball so far this year and he is 3-2 with 17 saves, a 0.74 ERA and a 0.93 WHIP. He has now pitched in 129 games (0 starts) in his first four years in the minors and he is 11-8 with 24 saves, a 2.25 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP. Woods is likely to get his first shot at the show in the near future if he keeps pitching like he is right now.

Matt McBride is ripping the ball in AAA for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by chinmusic on Tuesday 19 June 2012 at 5:35 pm

27-year old righty swinging 1B/OF Matt McBride was essentially thought of as little more than a throw in last July in the Ubaldo Jimenez deal with the Indians, but he’s swinging a hot stick in AAA-ball so far this year. McBride has played in 53 games in AAA-ball so far this year and he is 76 for 209 (.364 avg, .963 OPS) with 33 runs scored, 5 homers and 36 RBIs. He has now played in 615 games in his first seven years in the minors and he is 669 for 2,316 (.289 avg, .823 OPS) with 352 runs scored, 74 homers, 387 RBIs and 13 stolen bases. McBride might get his first shot at the show later this year for the Rockies.

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by chinmusic on Saturday 2 June 2012 at 4:21 pm

19-year old righty swinging SS/3B Trevor Story came into this season as the Rockies’ #6 prospect according to Baseball America. He is showing why so far this year. Story has played in 49 games in A-ball so far this year for the Rockies and he is 54 for 185 (.292 avg, .959 OPS) with 43 runs scored, 10 homers, 33 RBIs and 4 stolen bases.

The Rockies are going to likely take things slow with Story.

Matt McBride is looking good in AAA for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by chinmusic on Friday 11 May 2012 at 7:25 am

26-year old righty swinging outfielder Matt McBride is ripping the ball in AAA so far this year. He has played in 33 games in AAA-ball so far this year and he is 46 for 128 (.359 avg, .920 OPS) with 15 runs scored, 4 homers and 22 RBIs. McBride has only walked 4 times this season, so he’s swinging at everything, yet he’s hitting the ball well. McBride has now played in 595 games in his first seven years in the minors and he is 639 for 2,236 (.286 avg, .815 OPS) with 334 runs scored, 73 homers, 373 RBIs and 13 stolen bases. McBride could get his first shot at the show in 2012 if he keeps raking in AAA.

3B Nolan Arenado is getting closer for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by chinmusic on Saturday 5 May 2012 at 1:22 pm

21-year old righty swinging 3B Nolan Arenado came into this season as the Rockies’ #2 prospect according to Baseball America. Arenado has played in 28 games in AA-ball so far this year for the Rockies and he is 30 for 102 (.294 avg, .782 OPS) with 11 runs scored, 1 homer and 14 RBIs. He has now played in 308 games in his first four years in the minors and he is 360 for 1,195 (.301 avg, .825 OPS) with 166 runs scored, 35 homers, 223 RBIs and 8 stolen bases. The Rockies have a huge hole at 3B, so Arenado might get his first shot at the show at some point in 2012.

The Colorado Rockies release Albert Campos

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by chinmusic on Thursday 19 April 2012 at 7:16 pm

The Rockies have released 21-year old righty starter/reliever Albert Campos. Campos pitched in 15 games (all starts) in A-ball last year for the Rockies and he was 6-4 with a 5.19 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP. He pitched in 70 games (39 starts) in his four years in the minors with the Rockies and he was 12-15 with 5 saves, a 3.43 ERA and a 1.28 WHIP. The Rockies just couldn’t tolerate his off-field behavior, so they let him go. He’s too talented to not get another chance, so some team is going to pick him up in 2012.

D.J. LeMahieu is off to a great start in AAA-ball for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by chinmusic on Tuesday 17 April 2012 at 10:34 am

23-year old righty swinging infielder D.J. LeMahieu came into this season as the Rockies’ #13 prospect according to Baseball America. He was one of the last cuts for the Rockies in spring training. He is off to a good start in AAA-ball where he has played in 12 games in which he is 15 for 46 (.326 avg, .808 OPS) with 6 runs scored, 1 homer, 6 RBIs and 5 stolen bases. LaMahieu got his first shot at the show last year with the Cubs and he played in 37 games in which he was 15 for 60 (.250 avg, .545 OPS) with 3 runs scored, 0 homers and 4 RBIs. LeMahieu is going to get a shot at 3B for the Rockies if Chris Nelson doesn’t start playing better.

The Colorado Rockies lose minor league outfielder Tim Wheeler for a while

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Injuries, The Minors by chinmusic on Saturday 14 April 2012 at 12:47 pm

The Rockies’ AAA ballclub will be without 24-year old lefty swinging Tim Wheeler for the next month due to surgery to repair a broken right hand. Wheeler has played in 8 games in AAA-ball for the Rockies so far this year and he is 5 for 25 (.200 avg, .655 OPS) with 5 runs scored, 0 homers, 4 RBIs and 1 stolen base. This is a bad break for Wheeler as he came into this season as the Rockies’ #5 prospect according to Baseball America. Wheeler has played in 343 games in his first four years in the minors and he is 363 of 1,369 (.265 avg, .793 OPS) with 242 runs scored, 50 homers, 188 RBIs and 54 stolen bases.

Seven rookies could help the Colorado Rockies in 2012

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by chinmusic on Tuesday 3 April 2012 at 12:17 pm

Seven rookies could help the Rockies at some point during the 2012 season. Here is a look at them:

Drew Pomeranz: 23-year old lefty starting pitcher Drew Pomeranz comes into this season as the Rockies’ #1 prospect according to Baseball America. He pitched in 4 games (all starts) for the Rockies last year and he was 2-1 with a 5.40 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP. He also pitched in 20 games (all starts) in A+AA-ball last year for the Rockies & Indians in which he was 4-3 with a 1.78 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP. He only gave up 68 hits and 38 walks in 101 innings in the minors last year while whiffing 119 batters. Pomeranz could wind up winning the most games for the Rockies in 2012, as he is just that good.

Zach Putnam: 24-year old righty reliever Zach Putnam was the Indians’ #10 prospect according to Baseball America when the Rockies dealt Kevin Slowey for him. Putnam pitched in 8 games (0 starts) for the Indians last year and he was 1-1 with a 6.14 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP. He also pitched in 44 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball last year and he was 6-3 with 9 saves, a 3.65 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP. Putnam has now pitched in 122 games (15 starts) in his first four years in the minors and he is 16-8 with 14 saves, a 3.83 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP. Putnam could help the thin Rockies’ bullpen at some point in 2012.

Wilin Rosario: 23-year old righty swinging catcher Wilin Rosario comes into this season as the Rockies’ #4 prospect according to Baseball America. Rosario played in 16 games for the Rockies last year and he was 11 of 54 (.204 avg, .691 OPS) with 6 runs scored, 3 homers and 8 RBIs. He also played in 102 games in AA-ball last year and he was 101 of 405 (.249 avg, .741 OPS) with 52 runs scored, 21 homers, 48 RBIs and 1 stolen base. Rosario has now played in 395 games in his first six years in the minors and he is 392 of 1,469 (.267 avg, .765 OPS) with 198 runs scored, 61 homers, 216 RBIs and 15 stolen bases. Rosario will back up Ramon Hernandez behind the plate in 2012 for the Rockies.

Charlie Blackmon: 25-year old lefty swinging outfielder Charlie Blackmon comes into this season as the Rockies’ #11 prospect according to Baseball America. Blackmon played in 27 games for the Rockies last year and he was 25 of 98 (.255 avg, .753 OPS) with 9 runs scored, 1 homer, 8 RBIs and 5 stolen bases. He also played in 58 games in AAA-ball last year and he was 82 of 243 (.337 avg, .965 OPS) with 49 runs scored, 10 homers, 49 RBIs and 12 stolen bases. Blackmon has now played in 345 games in his first four years in the minors and he is 449 of 1,420 (.316 avg, .851 OPS) with 231 runs scored, 30 homers, 206 RBIs and 74 stolen bases. He could win a job off the bench at some point this year for the Rockies.

D.J. LeMahieu: 23-year old righty swinging infielder D.J. LeMahieu comes into this season as the Rockies’ #13 prospect according to Baseball America. LeMahieu played in 37 games for the Cubs last year and he was 15 for 60 (.250 avg, .546 OPS) with 3 runs scored, 0 homers and 4 RBIs. He also played in 108 games in AA+AAA-ball last year in which he was 132 of 414 (.319 avg, .777 OPS) with 55 runs scored, 5 homers, 50 RBIs and 9 stolen bases. He has now played in 284 games in his first 3 years in the minors and he is 359 of 1,132 (.317 avg, .753 OPS) with 139 runs scored, 7 homers, 157 RBIs and 27 stolen bases. LeMahieu is a solid hitter and he’s versatile in the field, so he should be able to help the Rockies off the bench in 2012.

Jordan Pacheco: 26-year old righty swinging 3B/1B/C Jordan Pacheco comes into this season as the Rockies’ #17 prospect according to Baseball America. He played in 21 games for the Rockies last year and he was 24 of 84 (.286 avg, .687 OPS) with 5 runs scored, 2 homers and 14 RBIs. He also played in 97 games in AAA-ball last year and he was 101 of 363 (.278 avg, .721 OPS) with 57 runs scored, 3 homers, 50 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. Pacheco has now played in 456 games in his first five years in the minors and he is 521 of 1,719 (.303 avg, .803 OPS) with 251 runs scored, 26 homers, 285 RBIs and 26 stolen bases. Pacheco could get his big shot at 3B this year for the Rockies.

Thomas Field: 25-year old righty swinging shortstop Thomas Field is the Rockies’ #27 prospect according to Baseball America. Field played in 16 games for the Rockies last year and he was 13 of 48 (.271 avg, .585 OPS) with 4 runs scored, 0 homers and 3 RBIs. He also played in 134 games in AA-ball last year and he was 128 of 472 (.271 avg, .795 OPS) with 77 runs scored, 17 homers, 61 RBIs and 9 stolen bases. Field has now played in 403 games in his first four years in the minors and he is 376 of 1,398 (.269 avg, .796 OPS) with 327 runs scored, 39 homers, 197 RBIs and 43 stolen bases. Field is blocked at SS by Troy Tulowitzki, so he might need to learn a new position to get to the majors with the Rockies in 2012.

Joe Torres of the Colorado Rockies gets suspended for 50 games

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by chinmusic on Tuesday 21 February 2012 at 6:55 pm

29-year old lefty reliever Joe Torres will miss the first 50 games of the 2012 season as he has failed a drug test for performance enhancing drugs. Torres pitched in 52 games (0 starts) in AA+AAA-ball for the Rockies last year and he was 3-1 with 2 saves, a 2.24 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP. Torres has now pitched in 315 games (72 starts) in his first 11 years in the minors and he is 36-35 with 5 saves, a 4.51 ERA and a 1.64 WHIP. This suspension might prevent Torres from ever getting to the majors despite pitching so well last year in the minors for the Rockies.
