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

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.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by joelapinski on Thursday 31 March 2016 at 2:25 pm

21-year old righty reliever Miguel Castro has made the Colorado Rockies‘ Opening Day bullpen.  Castro came into this season as the Rockies’ #12 prospect according to Baseball America.  He was a key part of the return the Rockies got in the Troy Tulowitzki deal last year.  Castro has pitched in 7 games (0 starts) so far in spring training and he is 0-0 with a 3.86 ERA and a 0.86 WHIP.  Castro pitched in 18 games (0 starts) for the Jays and Rockies last year in his first taste of the majors and he was 0-3 with 4 saves, a 6.11 ERA and a 1.76 WHIP.  Castro also pitched in 27 games (5 starts) in A+AAA-ball last year in which he was 3-3 with a 2.82 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP.  The Rockies will never say this, but their is a lot of pressure on Castro to succeed with them because of who they gave up to get him.
