The Colorado Rockies send Jason Gurka to AAA

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Pitching BP,The Minors by joelapinski on Friday 22 April 2016 at 6:23 pm

The Colorado Rockies have sent 28-year old lefty reliever Jason Gurka to AAA.  Gurka pitched in 6 games (0 starts) for the Rockies this year and he was 0-0 with a 9.31 ERA and a 1.86 WHIP.  He has now pitched in 15 games (0 starts) in his first two years with the Rockies and he is 0-0 with a 9.35 ERA and a 2.08 WHIP.  I don’t think Gurka will get another chance with the Rockies for a while, as he has been downright awful for them so far in his career.

The Colorado Rockies place Miguel Castro on the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries,The Minors by joelapinski on Friday 22 April 2016 at 6:15 pm

The Colorado Rockies have placed 21-year old righty reliever Miguel Castro on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 18th due to right shoulder inflammation.  Castro has pitched in 6 games (0 starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 0-0 with a 1.50 ERA and a 0.67 WHIP.  He has only given up 2 hits and 2 walks while whiffing 8 batters in his first six innings this year.  This is really going to hurt the Rockies’ bullpen, as Castro is off to a rock solid start in 2016.  The Rockies have activated 24-year old righty starting pitcher Jon Gray to replace Castro on the roster and he will start tonight against the Dodgers at Coors Field.  Gray pitched in 2 games (both starts) on a rehab assignment in A-ball this year and he was 0-1 with a 2.08 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP.  Gray pitched in 9 games (all starts) for the Rockies last year in his first taste of the majors and he was 0-2 with a 5.53 ERA and a 1.62 WHIP.  The Rockies have high hopes for Gray.

Raimel Tapia is a player on the rise in the Colorado Rockies’ system

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Thursday 7 April 2016 at 6:44 am

22-year old lefty swinging outfielder Raimel Tapia comes into this season as the Colorado Rockies‘ #10 prospect according to Baseball America.  He played in 131 games in A-ball last year and he was 166 of 544 (.305 avg, .800 OPS) with 74 runs scored, 12 homers, 71 RBIs and 26 stolen bases.  Tapia has now played in 449 games in his first five years in the minors and he is 555 of 1,768 (.314 avg, .806 OPS) with 280 runs scored, 29 homers, 260 RBIs and 97 stolen bases.  Look for Tapia to keep climbing in the system for the Rockies’ this year.

The Colorado Rockies send two pitchers to the minors

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Monday 4 April 2016 at 7:36 am

The Colorado Rockies have sent 26-year old righty reliever Scott Oberg and 28-year old righty reliever Gonzalez Germen to AAA to start the 2016 season.  Oberg pitched in 64 games (0 starts) for the Rockies last year and he was 3-4 with 1 save, a 5.09 ERA and a 1.53 WHIP.  Germen played in 35 games (1 start) for the Rockies and Cubs last year in which he was 0-0 with 1 save, a 4.42 ERA and a 1.73 WHIP.  He has now pitched in 89 games (1 start) in his first three years in the majors and he is 1-2 with 2 saves, a 4.35 ERA and a 1.54 WHIP.  I could see both of these guys pitching for the Rockies at some point in 2016, as long as they pitch well in AAA-ball first.

The Colorado Rockies send Yohan Flande to the minors

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Saturday 2 April 2016 at 11:03 pm

The Colorado Rockies have sent 30-year old lefty reliever/starter Yohan Flande to AAA to start the 2016 season.  He pitched in 5 games (0 starts) in spring training for the Rockies and he was 0-1 with a 4.50 ERA and a 0.80 WHIP.  He pitched in 19 games (10 starts) for the Rockies last year and he was 3-3 with a 4.74 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP.  Flande has now pitched in 35 games (20 starts) in his first two years with the Rockies and he is 3-9 with a 4.95 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP.  Flande will likely get back to Colorado at some point in 2016.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Tuesday 29 March 2016 at 2:00 pm

The Colorado Rockies have sent 28-year old righty swinging catcher Dustin Garneau to AAA.  Garneau played in 15 games this spring for the Rockies and he was 4 for 24 (.167 avg, .494 OPS) with 4 runs scored.  He played in 22 games for the Rockies in his first taste of the majors in 2015 and he was 11 of 70 (.157 avg, .509 OPS) with 6 runs scored, 2 homers and 8 RBIs.  Garneau also played in 81 games in AAA-ball last year in which he was 83 of 303 (.274 avg, .811 OPS) with 44 runs scored, 15 homers, 61 RBIs and 2 stolen bases.  He could get back to Colorado this year, if he plays well in AAA.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Monday 28 March 2016 at 9:40 pm

The Colorado Rockies have sent 28-year old switch-hitting 3B/OF Rafael Ynoa to AAA.  Ynoa played in 22 games in spring training for the Rockies and he was 14 of 39 (.359 avg, .831 OPS) with 4 runs scored, 0 homers and 3 RBIs.  He played in 72 games for the Rockies last year and he was 33 of 127 (.260 avg, .616 OPS) with 14 runs scored, 0 homers, 9 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  Ynoa has now played in 91 games in his first two years with the Rockies and he is 56 of 194 (.289 avg, .695 OPS) with 19 runs scored, 0 homers, 22 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  Ynoa will probably come up at some point in 2016 for the Rockies.

Ryan McMahon is a rock solid prospect for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Sunday 6 March 2016 at 6:51 am

21-year old lefty swinging 3B Ryan McMahon comes into this season as the Rockies’ #5 prospect according to Baseball America.  He played in 132 games in A-ball last year and he was 149 of 496 (.300 avg, .892 OPS) with 85 runs scored, 18 homers, 75 RBIs and 6 stolen bases.  He has now played in 317 games in his first three years in the minors and he is 355 of 1,196 (.297 avg, .896 OPS) with 220 runs scored, 47 homers, 229 RBIs and 18 stolen bases.  When McMahon finally gets to the show, he might have to change positions as long as the Colorado Rockies still have the awesome Nolan Arenado at 3B.

Kent Matthes could be close to getting a shot with the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Monday 26 August 2013 at 12:22 pm

26-year old righty swinging outfielder Kent Matthes came into this season as the Rockies’ #16 prospect according to Baseball America.  He has played in 105 games in AA+AAA-ball for the Rockies so far this year and he is 110 of 392 (.281 avg, .849 OPS) with 52 runs scored, 19 homers, 55 RBIs and 16 stolen bases.  Matthes has now played in 376 games in his first five years in the minors and he is 390 of 1,419 (.275 avg, .840 OPS) with 214 runs scored, 65 homers, 236 RBIs and 35 stolen bases.  Matthes could be nearing his first shot at the show when rosters expand next week.
