The Colorado Rockies have a couple of starting pitchers putting up a lot of zeroes

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by chinmusic on Wednesday 12 May 2010 at 8:50 am

Ubaldo Jimenez and the recently called up Jhoulys Chacin are throwing seeds for the Rockies right now. Jimenez has already tossed a no-hitter this season and there is no reason to think he can’t throw another one this season based on how well he is pitching right now. Jimenez has started 7 games for the Rockies so far this season and he is 6-1 with a 0.93 ERA and a 0.99 WHIP. He has only given up 28 hits in 48 1/3 innings this season while whiffing 49 batters showing just how dominating he has been. Jhoulys Chacin is showing why Baseball America said he was the Rockies’ #4 rated prospect coming into this season. He has pitched in 3 games (2 starts) for the Rockies this season and he is 2-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 0.78 WHIP. He has only allowed 7 hits in 15 1/3 innings while whiffing 16 batters so far this season. The Rockies are going to get on a good run soon with the starting pitching they have been getting.

Manny Corpas appears to be getting back on track for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by chinmusic on Friday 30 April 2010 at 9:07 am

27-year old righty reliever Manny Corpas looks like he’s getting his groove back. He has pitched in 9 games (0 starts) for the Rockies so far this season and he is 0-1 with a 1.13 ERA and a 0.88 WHIP. Corpas is really pitching well as he has only allowed 8 hits in 16 innings pitched so far this season. The Rockies hope that Corpas can keep this up because he had the look of a breakout pitcher back in 2007. In 2007, Corpas pitched in 78 games (0 starts) for the Rockies in which he was 4-2 with 19 saves, a 2.08 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP. But the last two years have been a disaster for him. In 2008 & 2009, Corpas pitched in 111 games (0 starts) for the Rockies in which he was 4-7 with 5 saves, a 4.92 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP. If Corpas continues to pitch well the Rockies will start using him later in games soon.

Matt Daley is off to a good start for the Colorado Rockies

28-year old righty middle reliever Matt Daley is off to a good start for the Rockies. He has pitched in 6 games for the Rockies this season and he is 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP. He has whiffed 4 batters in 4 2/3 innings so far this season for the Rockies. Daley won’t be pitching late in ballgames for the Rockies any time soon but if he pitches well in the middle innings the team will be really happy with him.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by chinmusic on Sunday 18 April 2010 at 12:15 am

Righty starting pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez threw the first no hitter in team history on Saturday at Turner Field against the Atlanta Braves. Jimenez was conveniently wild as he walked 6 batters while whiffing 7 in this game. He threw 129 pitches against the Braves with 72 of them being strikes. Jimenez improved to 3-0 on the season with a 1.29 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP. He just has nasty stuff. Carlos Gonzalez was the offensive star for the Rockies in this game as he was 2 for 5 with 2 doubles, 1 run scored and 2 RBIs. Brad Hawpe also had a nice game at the plate as he was 3 for 4 with 1 run scored.

A couple pitchers have been standouts for the Colorado Rockies so far

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by chinmusic on Saturday 10 April 2010 at 5:59 pm

Lefty starter Jorge De La Rosa and righty reliever Rafael Betancourt are both throwing darts so far this year. De La Rosa has started 1 game this season, which he won, by working 7 shutout innings allowing only 1 hit and 1 walk while whiffing 9 batters! De La Rosa is hoping to build off his breakout season in 2009 and it looks like he will. Betancourt is one of the top set-up men in all of baseball and he is showing why so far this season. In 3 games for the Rockies, Betancourt has pitched in 3 innings allowing only 1 hit while whiffing 5. When Huston Street gets back from injury the back end of the Rockies’ pen is going to be outstanding once again.

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by chinmusic on Tuesday 8 December 2009 at 10:14 am

34-year old righty reliever Rafael Betancourt has accepted arbitration from the Colorado Rockies. Betancourt pitched in 61 games (0 starts) last season for the Rockies & Indians and he was 4-3 with 2 saves, a 2.73 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP. He has now pitched in 403 games (0 starts) in his seven years in the majors and he is 26-23 with 18 saves, a 3.16 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP. The Rockies have to be happy to have Betancourt back as he will be a solid set-up man for Huston Street in 2010.

26-year old righty closer Huston Street of the Colorado Rockies finished in a tie for 25th in the MVP Voting in the N.L. with Justin Upton and Ryan Zimmerman. Street pitched in 64 games (0 starts) for the Rockies this year and he was 4-1 with 35 saves, a 3.06 ERA and a 0.91 WHIP. He only allowed 43 hits in 61 2/3 innings last season for the Rockies while whiffing 70 batters showing that he has adapted well to both Coors Field and the National League. Street has now pitched in 311 games (0 starts) in his 5-year major league career and he is 25-13 with 129 saves, a 2.91 ERA and a 1.04 WHIP. The Rockies have finally found the lockdown type closer that they have been looking for in Street.

Jason Marquis could be the odd man out in round #1 of the playoffs for the Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Playoffs,Throwing Well by chinmusic on Saturday 3 October 2009 at 4:48 pm

If the Rockies decide to go with three starters in the first round of the playoffs, Jason Marquis will likely be pitching in long relief. That just doesn’t seem fair when you consider that he started 32 games so far this season in which he is 15-12 with a 3.95 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP. The Rockies would likely go with Ubaldo Jimenez, Aaron Cook and Jorge De La Rosa in the first round of the playoffs as the starting pitchers. Jimenez by far has the best stuff as he started 33 games in which he was 15-12 with a 3.47 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP. Aaron Cook is coming back from an injury. He started 27 games for the Rockies this season and he is 11-6 with a 4.16 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP. The lone lefty will be Jorge De La Rosa who is having by far the best year of his major league career. He has pitched in 32 games (31 starts) for the Rockies this year and he is 16-9 with a 4.45 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP. If the Rockies make it past the first round of the playoffs then Jason Marquis will rejoin the starting rotation.

Rafael Betancourt has been nasty for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by chinmusic on Tuesday 22 September 2009 at 8:35 pm

34-year old righty reliever Rafael Betancourt has been nasty since coming over in a trade with the Cleveland Indians. He has pitched in 27 games out of the pen for the Rockies and he is 3-1 with 1 save, a 1.77 ERA and a 0.84 WHIP. He has only allowed 13 hits in 20 1/3 innings for the Rockies while whiffing 22 batters showing just how nasty his stuff has been. Betancourt will have a key role late in games down the stretch for the Rockies who are trying to sew up the Wild Card.

Franklin Morales is stepping up for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by chinmusic on Wednesday 16 September 2009 at 9:53 pm

23-year old lefty Franklin Morales is doing a fine job filling in for the injured Huston Street as the Rockies’ closer. Morales has pitched in 32 games (2 starts) for the Rockies this season and he is 3-1 with 6 saves, a 2.75 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP. Morales has whiffed 36 batters while only allowing 25 hits which shows how nasty his stuff can be. But he needs to tighten his control up a bit as he has walked 18 batters already this season. Despite Morales pitching so well out of the bullpen his future still likely lies in the Rockies’ rotation.
