Tyler Matzek pitches Colorado Rockies to victory against Giants in impressive road start

Tyler Matzek showed great growth on Monday night in his win.When DJ LeMahieu laced a Jake Peavy fastball to left field with two outs in the top of the 7th inning, it looked like it might be the worst thing for the Colorado Rockies chances of winning in what ended up a 3-2 win for the Rockies.That might not sound like it makes much sense, but LeMahieu's single meant that Tyler...

Tyler Matzek starting to make good

What do we make of the Rockies rookie left-hander Tyler Matzek at this point in the season? His surface statistics – a 2-9 record and a 5.38 earned run average in 77 innings so far this season – don’t scream rising star. But for the Rockies, who’ve had very little to look forward to as their season trickles towards an inevitable last-place finish, Matzek remains the most...

Rockies rotation is humming along nicely

Sunday against the Detroit Tigers, Jorge De La Rosa allowed four runs over six and two-thirds in what turned out to be a 4-0 Detroit win. Saturday, Tyler Matzek went just four innings and allowed eight earned runs to the Tigers in another loss. Those pitching lines, while far from inspiring, made two non-descript losses in August notable – not because the Rockies lost, but because...

Tyler Matzek may be Colorado Rockies biggest bright spot of 2014

Tyler Matzek was great on Friday night for the Rockies in a loss.There is no need to rehash the clown baseball that took place on Friday night in Milwaukee.The game can be summarized in a quick statement.

Tyler Matzek shines in unforgettable Major League debut for Colorado Rockies

Tyler Matzek was phenomenal in his Major League debut.It's been a long, windy road for Tyler Matzek.The former No.1 draft pick of the Colorado Rockies way back in 2009 was once thought to be the savior of the franchise. He was going to be the first ace that the Rockies developed. It was a shock that Matzek dropped all the way to 11th overall. He threw in the mid-to-upper 90&...

The time draws near for big decisions from the Colorado Rockies

It may be time for the Rockies to give Tyler Matzek his shot.I make a habit to not glean too much from the standings until Memorial Day.For all intents and purposes, it really isn't worth the time. It might be fun to watch how a certain team is doing, but to make arguments for or against a team's postseason hopes is semantics in April and May. The reality is, every year there...
