Tyler Anderson has been impressive for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by joelapinski on Saturday 3 September 2016 at 11:24 am

26-year old lefty starting pitcher Tyler Anderson has been very impressive so far for the Colorado Rockies, in his first taste of the show!  Anderson has pitched in 15 games (all starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 5-5 with a 3.43 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP.  He has given up 86 hits and 22 walks while whiffing 82 batters in his first 89 1/3 innings for the Rockies this year.  The most impressive thing has been how well Anderson has pitched in Coors Field.  Anderson has started 10 games at Coors Field so far this year and he is 5-1 with a 3.11 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP.  The Rockies have to be getting more and more excited about Anderson the more he pitches.

Adam Ottavino is going to serve as the Colorado Rockies’ new closer

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by joelapinski on Tuesday 9 August 2016 at 3:19 pm

30-year old righty reliever Adam Ottavino is moving into the closer’s role for the Colorado Rockies.  He has pitched in 15 games (0 starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 0.94 WHIP.  Ottavino has given up 8 hits and 3 walks while whiffing 12 batters in his first 11 2/3 innings for the Rockies so far this year.  He has now pitched in 204 games (0 starts) in his first five years with the Rockies and he is 8-8 with 4 saves, a 3.28 ERA and a 1.28 WHIP.  I think Ottavino will be a solid closer as he does not seem flustered with pitching half of his games at Coors Field.

35-year old lefty starting pitcher Jorge De La Rosa got off to a rough start this year for the Colorado Rockies in April and May, but he has been locked in since June 1st.  He has pitched in 12 games (10 starts) since June 1st for the Rockies and he is 6-3 with a 3.17 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP.  De La Rosa has pitched in 19 games (16 starts) overall this year for the Rockies and he is 7-7 with a 5.24 ERA and a 1.57 WHIP.  He has given up 101 hits and 42 walks while whiffing 71 batters in his first 91 innings this year for the Rockies.  He has now pitched in 201 games (192 starts) in his first nine years with the Rockies and he is 85-59 with a 4.29 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP.  De La Rosa is currently the Rockies’ all-time leader in both wins (85) and strikeouts (948)!  He is also #3 in ERA (4.29), #3 in WHIP (1.37), #16 in games pitched (201), #2 in games started (192), #2 in innings pitched (1,098 1/3) and he is tied for #13 in Rockies’ history in complete games (2).  The Rockies need De La Rosa to keep up the good work moving forward if they are going to make a legit playoff run in 2016.

The Colorado Rockies are getting solid work from a couple of rookie pitchers

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by joelapinski on Wednesday 20 July 2016 at 9:14 am

26-year old lefty starting pitcher Tyler Anderson and 23-year old righty reliever Carlos Estevez have been revelations for the Colorado Rockies so far this year.  Anderson was not considered one of the Rockies’ better prospects coming into this year.  He has pitched in 7 games (all starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 2-3 with a 3.43 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP.  Anderson has given up 44 hits (4 homers) and 9 walks while whiffing 35 batters in his first 42 innings for the Rockies so far this year.  Estevez came into this season as the Rockies’ #17 prospect coming into this year according to Baseball America.  Estevez is currently working as the Rockies’ closer right now.  Estevez has pitched in 35 games (0 starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 2-5 with 6 saves, a 4.05 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP.  He has given up 24 hits (4 homers) and 15 walks while whiffing 37 batters in his first 33 1/3 innings so far this year for the Rockies.  Estevez will keep the closer’s gig as long as he keeps pitching well.  The Rockies hope that Anderson and Estevez can keep up the good work moving forward.

Jon Gray has been pitching really well lately for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by joelapinski on Saturday 25 June 2016 at 12:26 pm

The Colorado Rockies are hoping that 24-year old righty starting pitcher Jon Gray is starting to turn the corner.  Since May 1st, Gray has pitched in 10 games (all starts) for the Rockies in which he is 4-3 with a 3.86 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP.  He has given up 45 hits and 21 walks while whiffing 63 batters in his last 60 2/3 innings, which are pretty impressive numbers.  Gray has now pitched in 10 games (all starts) overall this year for the Rockies and he is 4-3 with a 4.80 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP.

Tyler Chatwood has been rock solid for the Colorado Rockies in 2016

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by joelapinski on Thursday 16 June 2016 at 6:25 am

26-year old righty starting pitcher Tyler Chatwood missed last year due to injury for the Colorado Rockies, but he has come back even better in 2016.  He has pitched in 13 games (all starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 8-4 with a 2.89 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP.  He has given up 72 hits and 26 walks while whiffing 51 batters in his first 84 innings this year.  Chatwood has now pitched in 56 games (49 starts) in his first 4 years with the Rockies and he is 22-15 with 1 save, a 3.71 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP.  Chatwood is currently #19 in wins (22) in Rockies’ history.  He is also #22 in games started (49), #33 in innings pitched (284) and #37 in strikeouts (178) in Rockies’ history!  The Rockies acquired Chatwood on November 30th, 2011 with the Los Angeles Angels for catcher Chris Iannetta.  It looks like the Rockies won that trade.

Jake McGee is looking good for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by joelapinski on Thursday 19 May 2016 at 8:20 am

29-year old lefty Jake McGee is taking advantage of his first shot as a full time closer with the Colorado Rockies.  McGee has pitched in 17 games (0 starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 0-1 with 13 saves, a 3.78 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP.  He has given up 18 hits and 5 walks while whiffing 11 batters in his first 16 2/3 innings for the Rockies.  In his last 7 games, McGee is 0-0 with 6 saves, a 1.29 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP.  The only sore spot so far for McGee is that he hasn’t pitched near as well at Coors Field (which is understandable).  He has pitched in 9 games at home so far this year and he is 0-1 with 6 saves, a 5.19 ERA and a 1.39 WHIP.  McGee will likely smash his prior career high of 19 saves in a season!

The Colorado Rockies are getting solid work recently from a trio of starting pitchers

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by joelapinski on Friday 13 May 2016 at 12:39 pm

Tyler Chatwood and Chad Bettis have been pretty solid all year long for the Colorado Rockies, but they have had three pitchers step up behind them recently and they hope they can keep up the good work.  24-year old righty Jon Gray is considered a big part of the Rockies’ future.  He struggled as a rookie last year, but he is looking much better this year.  He has started 4 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP.  He has given up 21 hits and 6 walks while whiffing 28 batters in his first 21 2/3 innings this year, which shows just how nasty his stuff is.  This could be the year that Gray turns his stuff into solid results.  29-year old lefty Chris Rusin has pitched in 7 games (3 starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 1-1 with a 4.85 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP.  He has given up 30 hits and 9 walks while whiffing 21 batters in his first 26 innings with the Rockies so far this year.  25-year old righty Eddie Butler has pitched in 3 games (2 starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 1-1 with a 3.86 ERA and a 0.93 WHIP.  He has given up 10 hits and 3 walks while whiffing 13 batters in his first 14 innings pitched for the Rockies so far this year.  No team is running away with the National League West, so if the Rockies continue to get solid starting pitching, they could be a surprise contender in 2016.

Boone Logan has been looking sharp so far in 2016 for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by joelapinski on Friday 13 May 2016 at 12:28 pm

31-year old lefty reliever Boone Logan struggled in his first two years with the Colorado Rockies, but he’s locked in so far in 2016.  Logan has pitched in 15 games (0 starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 0-0 with a 2.19 ERA and a 0.97 WHIP.  He has only given up 8 hits and 4 walks while whiffing 15 batters in his first 12 1/3 innings for the Rockies, which is downright impressive!  He has now pitched in 110 games (0 starts) in his first three years with the Rockies and he is 2-6 with a 4.83 ERA and a 1.53 WHIP.  The Rockies need Logan to keep up the good work this year as they need all hands on the deck with the pitching staff in 2016.
