The Colorado Rockies are 4-4 so far this year due to a great start by their batters!  That is because the Rockies have a 7.61 ERA and a 1.75 WHIP as a team!  They have six pitchers with ERAs over 10.00 right now!  Lefty Jorge De La Rosa is 0-1 with a 12.46 ERA and a 2.54 WHIP and righty Jordan Lyles is 0-1 with a 11.25 ERA and a 2.25 WHIP.  Both De La Rosa and Jordan Lyles have started two games for the Rockies so far this year!  The bullpen also has four guys with ERAs over 10.00.  Lefty rookie Jason Gurka has pitched in 4 games in which he is 0-0 with a 10.57 ERA and a 1.96 WHIP.  Righties Chad Qualls (3 games, 0-0, 13.50 ERA, 3.00 WHIP), Christian Bergman (2 games, 0-1, 12.00 ERA, 2.33 WHIP) and Justin Miller (2 games, 1-0, 10.13 ERA and a 2.63 WHIP) have also been awful.  These guys need to start pitching better soon.

The Colorado Rockies’ pitching staff is a mess so far in 2016

The Colorado Rockies are somehow 3-3 on the season despite having a 7.98 ERA and a 1.89 WHIP.  Righty starters Tyler Chatwood, Chad Bettis, righty reliever Miguel Castro and lefty closer Jake McGee are the only pitchers who have pitched decent ball for the Rockies so far this year.  Chatwood has started 1 game for the Rockies so far this year and he is 1-0 with a 1.42 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP.  Bettis has started 2 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 1-0 with a 4.38 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP.  Castro has pitched in 4 games out of the pen so far this year for the Rockies and he is 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 0.75 WHIP while McGee has pitched in 2 games for the Rockies so far in which he is 0-0 with 2 saves, a 4.50 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP.  This quartet is a combined 2-0 with 2 saves, a 2.92 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP.  The rest of the Rockies’ pitching staff is 1-3 with a 12.39 ERA and a 2.54 WHIP!  The Rockies will not continue to win games pitching like they are right now.

The bench is off to a good start for the Colorado Rockies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Playing Well by joelapinski on Friday 8 April 2016 at 7:44 am

The Colorado Rockies‘ bench is looking impressive so far this year.  Righty swinging OF Ryan Raburn has played in all 3 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 2 for 5 (.400 avg, 1.400 OPS) with 1 run scored, 1 homer and 1 RBI.  Righty swinging outfielder Brandon Barnes has played in 2 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 2 for 3 (.667 avg, 1.417 OPS), but he has already been caught stealing twice.  Lefty swinging 1B Ben Paulsen has played in 2 games for the Rockies so far this year and he is 2 for 4 (.500 avg, 1.500 OPS) with 1 run scored and 2 doubles.  These guys might not start a lot of games in 2016, but they will play in a lot of games due to the pinch hitting needs of the Rockies.  I don’t see many complete games out of their starting rotation in 2016.

The double play combo for the Colorado Rockies have been raking this year

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Playing Well by joelapinski on Thursday 7 April 2016 at 8:06 am

27-year old righty swinging 2B D.J. LeMahieu and 23-year old righty swinging SS Trevor Story are raking at the plate for the Colorado Rockies so far this year.  LeMahieu played in 3 games against the D-Backs and he was 6 for 10 (.600 avg, 1.800 OPS) with 4 runs scored, 2 homers and 4 RBIs.  Story came into this season as the Rockies’ #8 prospect according to Baseball America.  He is showing why so far this year.  Story played in 3 games against the D-Backs and he was 4 for 14 (.286 avg, 1.429 OPS) with 4 runs scored, 4 homers and 7 RBIs.  Story has hit at least one homer in all three of the Rockies’ games so far, which is amazing.  The Rockies scored 20 runs and whacked 10 homers in the opening series against the D-Backs and that allowed them to win 2 of their first three games.

22-year old lefty swinging outfielder Raimel Tapia comes into this season as the Colorado Rockies‘ #10 prospect according to Baseball America.  He played in 131 games in A-ball last year and he was 166 of 544 (.305 avg, .800 OPS) with 74 runs scored, 12 homers, 71 RBIs and 26 stolen bases.  Tapia has now played in 449 games in his first five years in the minors and he is 555 of 1,768 (.314 avg, .806 OPS) with 280 runs scored, 29 homers, 260 RBIs and 97 stolen bases.  Look for Tapia to keep climbing in the system for the Rockies’ this year.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Monday 4 April 2016 at 6:44 pm

The Colorado Rockies have placed 24-year old righty starting pitcher Jon Gray on the 15-day disabled list due to an abdominal strain.  Gray pitched in 9 games (all starts) for the Rockies last year and he was 0-2 with a 5.53 ERA and a 1.62 WHIP.  He also pitched in 21 games (20 starts) in AAA-ball last year in which he was 6-6 with a 4.33 ERA and a 1.49 WHIP.  The Rockies hope Gray gets healthy, because they want to give him his big chance to show what he can do in 2016.

The Colorado Rockies have placed 26-year old lefty starting pitcher Tyler Anderson on the 15-day disabled list due to a strained right oblique muscle.  Anderson missed all of last year due to a left elbow injury.  Anderson pitched in 23 games (all starts) in AA-ball for the Rockies in 2014 and he was 7-4 with a 1.98 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP.  He has now pitched in 59 games (all starts) in his first three years in the minors and he is 23-10 with a 2.39 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP.  The Rockies are going to treat Anderson with kid gloves, as he is a talented pitcher.

The Colorado Rockies have placed 25-year old lefty starting pitcher Tyler Matzek on the 15-day disabled list due to him have an anxiety problem.  Matzek pitched in 5 games (all starts) for the Rockies last year and he was 2-1 with a 4.09 ERA and a 1.82 WHIP.  He has now pitched in 25 games (24 starts) in his first two years in the show and he is 8-12 with a 4.06 ERA and a 1.46 WHIP.  Matzek isn’t that bad of a pitcher, but he needs to get his head straight before he can help the Rockies.

The Colorado Rockies send two pitchers to the minors

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Monday 4 April 2016 at 7:36 am

The Colorado Rockies have sent 26-year old righty reliever Scott Oberg and 28-year old righty reliever Gonzalez Germen to AAA to start the 2016 season.  Oberg pitched in 64 games (0 starts) for the Rockies last year and he was 3-4 with 1 save, a 5.09 ERA and a 1.53 WHIP.  Germen played in 35 games (1 start) for the Rockies and Cubs last year in which he was 0-0 with 1 save, a 4.42 ERA and a 1.73 WHIP.  He has now pitched in 89 games (1 start) in his first three years in the majors and he is 1-2 with 2 saves, a 4.35 ERA and a 1.54 WHIP.  I could see both of these guys pitching for the Rockies at some point in 2016, as long as they pitch well in AAA-ball first.
