Joey Williamson is off to a good start in the minors for the Colorado Rockies in 2012

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by chinmusic on Thursday 23 August 2012 at 9:17 am

26-year old righty reliever Joey Williamson has been pitching well in the minors for the Rockies so far this year. Williamson has pitched in 40 games (1 start) in AA+AAA-ball for the Rockies so far this year and he is 3-2 with 1 save, a 2.34 ERA and a 1.48 WHIP. He has given up 47 hits and he has whiffed 59 batters in only 50 innings pitched which is impressive, but, he has also walked 27 batters so far this year and that’s just too many. Williamson has now pitched in 159 games (27 starts) in his first five years in the minors and he is 30-10 with 7 saves, a 3.47 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP. Maybe Williamson will get his first shot at the show when rosters expand on September 1st.

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 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.

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.
