Adam Ottavino has been rock solid for the Colorado Rockies so far this year

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Thursday 30 August 2012 at 4:51 pm

26-year old righty reliever Adam Ottavino has been pretty solid as a long reliever for the Rockies so far this year. He has pitched in 43 games (0 starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 5-1 with a 3.55 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP. Ottavino has only given up 50 hits while whiffing 64 batters in his first 63 1/3 innings, which is impressive, but he has also walked 28 batters and that is way too many. Still, even with his control issues, Ottavino has been a rock solid reliever for the Rockies so far this year.

Pomeranz has now pitched in 12 games (all starts) in his first two years with the Rockies and he is 3-5 with a 4.30 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP.

Adam Ottavino has been looking good for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Wednesday 13 June 2012 at 10:07 am

26-year old righty reliever Adam Ottavino is making the most of the opportunity that the Rockies have given him so far this year. He has pitched in 15 games (0 starts) so far this year for the Rockies and he is 1-0 with a 1.69 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP. He has only given up 13 hits and walked 3 batters in his first 16 innings pitched this year while whiffing 19 batters, which is pretty darn impressive. Ottavino has now pitched in 20 games (3 starts) in his first two years in the majors and he is 1-2 with a 5.63 ERA and a 1.62 WHIP. It looks like a change in scenery has done Ottavino a lot of good.

Rafael Betancourt is pitching really well for the Colorado Rockies so far this year

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Tuesday 29 May 2012 at 9:58 am

37-year old righty reliever Rafael Betancourt came into this season with only 27 career saves in his first 9 years in the majors. But, when the Rockies dealt Huston Street to the Padres over the winter, they turned the closer’s job over to Betancourt. Betancourt has pitched in 19 games (0 starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 1-1 with 9 saves, a 2.37 ERA and a 0.95 WHIP. He has only given up 13 hits and 5 walks in his first 19 innings while whiffing 20 batters so far this year as he has been impressive in his new role. The Rockies hope that Betancourt keeps up the good work.

Christian Friedrich is rolling for the Colorado Rockies so far this year

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Friday 18 May 2012 at 9:32 am

24-year old lefty starting pitcher Christian Friedrich came into this season as the Rockies’ #14 prospect according to Baseball America. Friedrich then started five games in AAA-ball this year and he was 2-1 with a 3.00 ERA and a 0.90 WHIP. He earned the promotion due to the Rockies’ rotation being in shambles and he has excelled so far. Friedrich has started 2 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 1-0 with a 1.38 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP. He has only given up 11 hits and walked 2 batters in his first 13 innings pitched for the Rockies, while whiffing 17 batters. The Rockies hope that Friedrich keeps up the good work.

Jamie Moyer has been so-so for the Colorado Rockies so far this year

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Wednesday 9 May 2012 at 1:59 pm

40-year old lefty starting pitcher Jamie Moyer should probably have three wins already this year, but he doesn’t. Moyer has pitched in 6 games (all starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 1-2 with a 4.01 ERA and a 1.66 WHIP. Moyer has given up 46 hits (5 homers) in only 33 2/3 innings this year, but he has only walked 10 batters and whiffed 17….which has limited the damage a little bit. Moyer has now pitched in 692 games (634 starts) in his first 25 years in the majors and he is 268-206 with a 4.23 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP. If Moyer is going to have a legit shot at 300 wins in his career, the Rockies are going to have to start scoring more runs when he pitches.

The Colorado Rockies are getting outstanding work from the back end of the pen so far

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Tuesday 24 April 2012 at 1:54 pm

36-year old righty closer Rafael Betancourt and 31-year old righty set-up man Matt Belisle have been locking down games late so far this year for the Rockies. Belisle has pitched in 7 games (0 starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 0.15 WHIP. He has only allowed 1 base runner (it was a hit) while whiffing 6 batters in his first 6 2/3 innings. Betancourt has pitched in 7 games (0 starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 0-0 with 5 saves, a 1.29 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP. The Rockies are glad that things are working out at the back end of the bullpen as they took a big chance in going with these guys to close out games.
