The Colorado Rockies DFA Ryan Rohlinger

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by chinmusic on Thursday 25 August 2011 at 8:18 am

The Rockies have designated 27-year old righty swinging infielder Ryan Rohlinger for assignment. Rohlinger played in 61 games in AAA-ball for the Rockies this year and he was 61 for 211 (.289 avg, .849 OPS) with 41 runs scored, 4 homers and 30 RBIs. He has played in 94 games overall in AAA-ball this year for the Giants & Rockies and he was 82 for 332 (.247 avg, .767 OPS) with 63 runs scored, 9 homers, 46 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. This is no loss for the Rockies.

The Colorado Rockies lose Drew Pomeranz for the year

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Injuries, The Minors by chinmusic on Monday 22 August 2011 at 10:01 am

22-year old lefty starting pitcher Drew Pomeranz will miss the rest of the year due to an emergency appendectomy. He was the key player the Rockies got in return for Ubaldo Jimenez. Pomeranz started 1 game in AA-ball for the Rockies this year and he was the winning pitcher as he worked the first 7 innings allowing only 2 hits, walking no one, whiffing 4 batters and giving up no runs. Pomeranz has pitched in 19 games (all starts) in A+AA-ball this year and he was 4-3 with a 1.84 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP. He only gave up 68 hits while whiffing 116 batters in his first 98 innings of his minor league career. The Rockies will take it slowly with Pomeranz because his future is very bright.

UPDATE: (9/6/2011) - The Rockies have called up Drew Pomeranz as he recovered quickly from his surgery.

Mark Ellis has been solid for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by chinmusic on Monday 15 August 2011 at 6:25 pm

34-year old righty swinging 2B Mark Ellis has played well since coming to the Rockies from the A’s in a deal. Ellis has played in 36 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 37 for 135 (.274 avg, .722 OPS) with 18 runs scored, 3 homers, 13 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. He has now played in 98 games overall this year for the Rockies & A’s and he is 84 for 352 (.239 avg, .612 OPS) with 39 runs scored, 4 homers, 29 RBIs and 10 stolen bases. The Rockies hope to bring Ellis back over the winter as he will become a free agent after the World Series.

Kent Matthes is on fire with the bat for the Colorado Rockies in the minors

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by chinmusic on Monday 15 August 2011 at 5:28 pm

24-year old righty swinging outfielder Kent Matthes wasn’t one of the top prospects of the Rockies coming into this season. But, he’s starting to change that this year. Matthes has played in 93 games in A-ball so far this year and he is 124 for 371 (.334 avg, 1.020 OPS) with 70 runs scored, 23 homers, 95 RBIs and 7 stolen bases. He has now played in 177 games in his first three years in the minors and he is 208 for 691 (.301 avg, .900 OPS) with 118 runs scored, 29 homers, 141 RBIs and 13 stolen bases. If Matthes keeps hitting like he is right now, the Rockies might put him on the fast track to the majors.

Tim Wheeler is having a breakthrough season in the minors for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by chinmusic on Thursday 7 July 2011 at 6:32 pm

23-year old lefty swinging Tim Wheeler came into this season as the Rockies’ #21 prospect according to Baseball America, but he has to be moving up for next year’s rankings. Wheeler has played in 81 games in AA-ball so far this year and he is 103 for 326 (.316 avg, .988 OPS) with 67 runs scored, 20 homers, 63 RBIs and 14 stolen bases. Wheeler has now played in 278 games in his first three years in the minors and he is 300 for 1,119 (.271 avg, .800 OPS) with 199 runs scored, 37 homers, 161 RBIs and 46 stolen bases. Wheeler has to be catching the eyes of the Rockies’ brass as they likely have smiles on their faces.

The Colorado Rockies deal Josh Fields to the Nippon Ham Fighters

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by chinmusic on Wednesday 29 June 2011 at 5:06 pm

The Rockies have dealt 28-year old righty swinging 3B Josh Fields to the Nippon Ham Fighters. No idea who or what the Rockies will get for him. Fields played in 50 games in AAA-ball for the Rockies this year and he is 65 for 178 (.365 avg, 1.103 OPS) with 53 runs scored, 11 homers, 45 RBIs and 7 steals. Fields has played in 217 games in parts of five years in the majors and he is 167 for 713 (.234 avg, .724 OPS) with 95 runs scored, 34 homers, 107 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. With the emergence of Ty Wigginton at 3B, the Rockies decided that they had no need for Fields anymore so they essentially let him work out a deal with a team in Japan.

Brad Emaus could be nearing a shot with the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by chinmusic on Monday 27 June 2011 at 1:42 pm

25-year old righty swinging 2B Brad Emaus is really ripping the ball in AAA for the Rockies right now. He has played in 43 games in AAA-ball for the Rockies this year and he is 49 for 157 (.312 avg, .961 OPS) with 36 runs scored, 9 homers, 27 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. Emaus looked overmatched with the Mets earlier this year. He played in 14 games for the Mets this year and he was 6 for 37 (.162 avg, .424 OPS) with 2 runs scored and 1 RBI. With switch-hitting Jonathan Herrera and righty swinging Chris Nelson struggling at the plate right now, it might only be a matter of time before the Rockies give Brad Emaus a shot.

Claudio Vargas of the Colorado Rockies retires from baseball

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures, Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by chinmusic on Tuesday 14 June 2011 at 3:06 pm

32-year righty starter/reliever Claudio Vargas has decided to retire. Vargas pitched in 8 games (4 starts) in AAA-ball for the Rockies this year and he was 2-2 with a 11.08 ERA and a 2.42 WHIP. He gave up 50 hits and 6 homers in only 26 innings pitched this year in AAA. Vargas pitched in 217 games (114 starts) in his 8 years in the majors and he was 48-40 with 1 save, a 4.83 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP. The Rockies won’t miss Vargas at all going forward.

The Colorado Rockies have to be pleased with the development of catcher Wilin Rosario

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by chinmusic on Wednesday 8 June 2011 at 10:52 am

22-year old righty swinging catcher Wilin Rosario came into this season as the Rockies’ #2 prospect according to Baseball America. Rosario has played in 41 games in AA-ball so far this year and he is 42 for 161 (.261 avg, .780 OPS) with 23 runs scored, 9 homers and 18 RBIs. He has now played in 334 games in his first six years in the minors and he is 333 for 1,225 (.272 avg, .774 OPS) with 169 runs scored, 49 homers, 186 RBIs and 14 stolen bases. Rosario might be ready to challenge Chris Iannetta for the starting job behind the plate next spring if he continues to play like he is right now.

Josh Fields is ripping the ball in AAA for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Minors by chinmusic on Friday 13 May 2011 at 11:15 am

28-year old righty swinging 3B Josh Fields is off to a great start in AAA-ball this year. He has played in 27 games in AAA-ball so far this year and he is 31 for 87 (.356 avg, 1.121 OPS) with 27 runs scored, 6 homers, 22 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. Fields last played in the majors in 2010 with the Royals. He has played in 217 games in his first five years in the majors and he is 167 of 713 (.234 avg, .724 OPS) with 95 runs scored, 34 homers, 107 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. He has also whiffed 235 times in his major league career as he has been pretty much an all or nothing hitter in the majors. If he keeps hitting well while Ian Stewart continues to struggle with the Rockies, he might get a chance to revive his major league career with the Rockies in 2011.
