Trevor Story is the real deal for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Playing Well by joelapinski on Tuesday 5 July 2016 at 11:50 am

23-year old righty swinging SS Trevor Story is the real deal for the Colorado Rockies.  He has played in 75 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 78 of 296 (.264 avg, .876 OPS) with 47 runs scored, 19 homers, 50 RBIs and 5 stolen bases.  He is second on the Rockies in homers, third on the team in RBIs and he is tied for fourth on the team in runs scored.  Story does have some holes in his swing, as he has whiffed a National League leading 106 times so far this year.  Story hits for a higher average at Coors Field (.280) than he does on the road (.247), but he has hit more homers on the road (11) than at home (8) which really impresses the heck out of me.  I think Story is going to have a long and very productive career with the Colorado Rockies and it’s just beginning in 2016.

The Colorado Rockies have called up 30-year old lefty reliever/starter Yohan Flande.  Flande has pitched in 18 games (1 start) in AAA-ball for the Rockies this year and he was 3-3 with a 4.25 ERA and a 1.56 WHIP.  Flande has pitched in 35 games (20 starts) in his first two years with the Rockies and he is 3-9 with a 4.95 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP.  The Rockies have sent 21-year old righty reliever Miguel Castro to AAA to make room on the roster for Flande.  Castro has pitched in 19 games (0 starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 0-0 with a 6.14 ERA and a 1.57 WHIP.  He could get back to Colorado at some point later this year, if he pitches well in AAA first.

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.

The Colorado Rockies have called up 25-year old righty starting pitcher Jordan Lyles.  Lyles will pitch out of the bullpen this time around for the Rockies.  Lyles pitched in 5 games (all starts) earlier this year for the Rockies and he was 1-2 with a 8.55 ERA and a 2.05 WHIP.  He has now pitched in 37 games (all starts) in his first three years with the Rockies and he is 10-11 with a 4.97 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP.  To make room for Lyles on the pitching staff, the Rockies have sent 26-year old righty reliever Scott Oberg to AAA.  Oberg has pitched in 9 games (0 starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 0-0 with a 4.05 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP.  Oberg has now pitched in 73 games (0 starts) in his first two years with the Rockies and he is 3-4 with 1 save, a 4.90 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP.  Oberg will likely be back at some point in 2016 for the Rockies.

The Colorado Rockies have acquired 27-year old lefty reliever Pat McCoy from the Toronto Blue Jays for cash considerations.  McCoy pitched in 17 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball for the Blue Jays this year and he was 0-1 with a 4.64 ERA and a 1.59 WHIP.  His only experience in the show came back in 2014 for the Detroit Tigers.  McCoy pitched in 14 games (0 starts) for the Tigers in 2014 and he was 0-0 with a 3.86 ERA and a 2.43 WHIP.  It never hurts to take a flier on a lefty reliever with experience in the show.

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Sunday 19 June 2016 at 2:16 pm

The Colorado Rockies have placed 26-year old righty starting pitcher Tyler Chatwood on the 15-day D.L. due to a mid-back sprain.  Chatwood has pitched in 14 games (all starts) for the Rockies so far this year and he is 8-4 with a 3.15 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP.  The Rockies have called up 26-year old righty reliever Scott Oberg to replace Chatwood on the pitching staff.  Oberg pitched in 8 games (0 starts) earlier this year for the Rockies and he was 0-0 with a 4.76 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP.  He has now pitched in 72 games (0 starts) in his first two years with the Rockies and he is 3-4 with 1 save, a 5.04 ERA and a 1.52 WHIP.  The Rockies hope that Chatwood only has to miss a couple of weeks, as he has been by far the best pitcher in their starting rotation so far this year.

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.
