Video: Diamondbacks pitcher Archie Bradley drilled by comebacker

mlb.com Diamondbacks pitcher Archie Bradley was drilled by a line drive through the box off the bat of Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez Tuesday night.  Here’s rather disturbing video of the before, during and after.  The sound of the impact is gruesome. As he rolled over, it looks like he’s hiding a tennis ball under his right cheek. Great news, however, came from Dbacks...

Padres lack lefty in the bullpen

Usually, teams have a lefty specialist in the bullpen to face slugging left-handed hitters late in games. The Padres currently don’t have that option after having optioned left-hander Chris Rearick to Triple-A and called up right-hander Cory Mazzoni. While the Padres are one of six teams with a rotation without a lefty, they are currently the only team without at least one left...

Rockies doing well despite lack of production from Carlos Gonzalez

Gonzalez might be the most fearsome slugger in a loaded Rockies lineup, yet he’s hardly been contributing to start this season. He’s hitting .167 through 66 at-bats with only two home runs and six RBIs. CarGo seems content though to answer questions about his play on the field rather than his health following a couple of injury-plagued seasons. According to the Denver Post, he...

Rockies remain loaded with questions

The old baseball axiom says you can’t win a pennant in April, but you can lose it, meaning that getting off to a good start is crucial to staying in the playoff race all season long. But what does a hot start teach you about your team if they aren’t a realistic postseason contender? Are the New York Mets the team to beat now? What does coming out of the gate with six straight...

Corey Dickerson might be the best MLB hitter you've never heard of

When you think of great hitters currently with the Rockies, Troy Tulowitzki, Carlos Gonzalez, Justin Morneau and perhaps Nolan Arenado come to mind. Corey Dickerson might be better than all of them though. He hit .312 last season -- just 7 points lower than teammate and NL batting champ Justin Morneau -- but was 24 plate appearances shy of qualifying for consideration among the NL...

Nolan Arenado’s latest catch is a beauty

The most important player for the Colorado Rockies this season might not be Carlos Gonzalez or Troy Tulowitzki, but instead third baseman Nolan Arenado. Arenado already has a reputation as one of the best defensive third basemen in baseball, and his bat isn’t exactly mediocre. Arenado showed off that glove on Tuesday night, making this ridiculous catch to retire Gregor Blanco in...

2015 season preview: Colorado Rockies

The Colorado Rockies knew changes were needed after their fourth straight losing season, one that saw them drop 96 games and barely avoid a third straight last place finish in the NL West.

Player Profile #14: Adam Jones | OF | BAL

A back-end first round pick in 2014, Adam Jones didn’t quite live up to his draft day value, but he was pretty darn close. In Yahoo! leagues he ranked 20th overall and in ESPN leagues he finished 23rd. Given the extremely slow start Jones got off to last year (.265, 1 HR, 11 RBI in April), I think most Jones owners were ultimately happy they risked selecting him with the ninth...
