Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by chinmusic on Friday 22 July 2011 at 8:16 am

24-year old rookie righty starting pitcher Juan Nicasio has been really solid in his first taste of the majors this year for the Rockies. He came into this season as the Rockies’ #8 prospect according to Baseball America. Nicasio has started 10 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 4-2 with a 3.88 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP. He looks like he’s going to be a big part of the Rockies’ future.

Matt Lindstrom has been solid for the Colorado Rockies so far this year

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by chinmusic on Thursday 7 July 2011 at 10:22 am

31-year old righty reliever Matt Lindstrom is pitching the best baseball of his career in 2011. Lindstrom has pitched in 38 games (0 starts) so far this year for the Rockies and he is 2-1 with 2 saves, a 2.86 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP. The reason for Lindstrom pitching so well is that he’s trusting his stuff and his defense as he has only walked 10 batters in his first 34 2/3 innings this year. Lindstrom could wind up closing later this year if the Rockies decide to deal Huston Street or he could get dealt, if the Rockies continue to falter in the standings.

Jhoulys Chacin has been dominating in June for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by chinmusic on Wednesday 22 June 2011 at 8:02 am

23-year old righty starting pitcher Jhoulys Chacin is turning into the ace of the Rockies’ pitching staff. In his four June starts, Chacin is 3-0 with a 1.01 ERA and a 0.97 WHIP. He has only given 12 hits in 26 2/3 innings so far in June. Chacin has now started 15 games for the Rockies this year and he is 8-4 with a 2.71 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP. Chacin has 11 quality starts for the Rockies this year, so he has been consistently very good for them. He has only given up 68 hits in 99 2/3 innings while whiffing 88 batters so far this year, which shows just how nasty he has been. Chacin has walked 40 batters this year and that has gotten him into some trouble at times. If he tightens up his control a little bit, he might start winning some Cy Young Awards.

Matt Reynolds has been really solid out of the pen for the Colorado Rockies so far this year

26-year old lefty reliever Matt Reynolds has been excellent for the Rockies so far this year. In his last 13 games out of the pen, Reynolds is 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 0.71 WHIP. He has now pitched in 25 games (0 starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 0-1 with a 2.40 ERA and a 0.73 WHIP. Reynolds has given up 8 hits and he has walked only 3 batters in his first 15 innings with a stunning 18 whiffs! He has been very impressive for the Rockies who are very excited about how he is pitching right now.

31-year old righty reliever Matt Lindstrom has been outstanding so far this year for the Rockies. He has pitched in 21 games (0 starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 0-0 with 2 saves, a 1.47 ERA and a 1.04 WHIP. He has only walked 4 batters so far this year in his first 18 1/3 innings while whiffing 15 batters as he has been really efficient with his pitches so far this year. He has a big time right arm and he would be the Rockies first choice to close if something were to have to closer Huston Street.

Jason Hammel is off to a great start for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by chinmusic on Monday 9 May 2011 at 8:32 am

28-year old righty starting pitcher Jason Hammel is off to the best start of his major league career. He has pitched in 6 games (all starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 3-1 with a 2.63 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP. Hammel is pounding the strike zone as he has only walked 11 batters in his first 37 2/3 innings for the Rockies so far this year. The Rockies hope this isn’t a mirage because they really need Hammel to pitch well this year because of all of the injuries in the starting rotation.

Jhoulys Chacin is off to a very fast start for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by chinmusic on Tuesday 19 April 2011 at 11:58 am

Young righty starting pitcher Jhoulys Chacin is off to an outstanding start this season for the Colorado Rockies. Chacin has started 3 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 3-0 with a 1.64 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP. He has only given up 18 hits in his first 22 innings while walking only 6 batters as he has been outstanding. The Rockies needed someone to step up when Ubaldo Jimenez got hurt, and Chacin has been that guy so far this year. I think he’s going to win at least 15 games for the Rockies and maybe close to 20 for them this year as long as he can stay healthy.

Ubaldo Jimenez has turned in a outstanding year for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by chinmusic on Friday 10 September 2010 at 11:36 am

Sure, 26-year old righty starting pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez has not been dominating like he was in the first two or three months of the year but he is still turning in a outstanding overall season. Jimenez has started 28 games for the Rockies this year and he is 18-6 with a 2.79 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP. He has only given up 141 hits in 190 1/3 innings while whiffing 178 batters. If he could just tighten up his control a bit more (he has walked 78 batters this year) he would be even more dominating. As it is though, the Rockies finally have the ace at the top of the rotation that they really have never had in team history.

Jason Hammel is consistent for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by chinmusic on Saturday 28 August 2010 at 8:48 am

27-year old righty starting pitcher Jason Hammel is a solid back end of the rotation starter for the Rockies. He has started 23 games for the Rockies this year and he is 8-7 with a 4.35 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP. He is second on the team in wins, starts and innings pitched so far this year. Hammel has now pitched in 57 games (53 starts) in his two years with the Rockies and he is 18-15 with a 4.34 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP. Not too many people out there thought much about the trade that brought him over from the Rays last season but it has really helped out the Rockies and Hammel. Hammel would be nothing more than a mop up man if he were still with the Rays.

Matt Belisle has been outstanding this year for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by chinmusic on Thursday 12 August 2010 at 6:48 pm

30-year old righty reliever Matt Belisle is having a career year for the Rockies. He has pitched in 53 games (0 starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 5-4 with 1 save, a 2.34 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP. Belisle has whiffed 73 batters while giving up only 60 hits and walking 13 batters in 69 1/3 innings pitched. Belisle’s pitching has to be a huge surprise to the Rockies’ front office. In his previous six years in the majors, Belisle pitched in 156 games (43 starts) in which he was 19-23 with 1 save, a 5.10 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP. The Rockies hope Belisle finishes this season strongly because they need all hands on the deck if they are going to make it back to the playoffs in 2010.
