However, he continued a trend of diminished strikeouts, as noted by MLB Trade Rumors: "He averaged just 5.4 K/9 against 3.2 BB/9 with the Clippers. Chacin at one time looked to be a budding strikeout artist, whiffing 138 batters in 137 1/3 innings of 3.28 ERA ball with the...

Pitching change: Rockies have a plan to improve on the mound

Righty Kyle Kendrick will start Opening Day despite a career 4.42 ERA. Righty Jhoulys Chacin...

Rockies pitching woes show no end

This is not a column about Coors Field ruining pitchers. The fact is, until the Colorado Rockies decide to change a different variable besides the actual pitchers (i.e. trainers, approaches to pitching at altitude, approaches to pitching as a club, a better method of keeping relievers fresh, etc.) in their quest for competent pitching, it’s lazy analysis to simply dismiss the club’s...

Heading into the off season, there are some bright spots, as the Rockies are second in the league in runs scored.
