Daily DraftKings Picks: Tuesday, May 19

Yesterday I recommended Arizona’s Rubby De La Rosa on the road against the Marlins, plus a smattering of batters from the MIL@DET game and a couple Rockies, Wilin Rosario and Nolan Arenado. As lineup lock time approached, I pulled Arenado for Aramis Ramirez, making the switch for two reasons. First, Ramirez was $300 cheaper and I wanted to improve a hidden lineup slot. Second,...

Rockies' Hundley hitting better than average

The acquisition of catcher Nick Hundley has been paying off for the Rockies, but perhaps in a surprising way. Although the veteran catcher was mainly supposed to be an upgrade behind the plate over Wilin Rosario, he’s has been a pleasant surprise at the plate. Hundley amassed a .238 average in parts of seven seasons with the Padres and .233 with the Orioles last season. This year...

Rockies' Rosario optioned to Triple-A

To make room for John Axford -- who is coming off the restricted list -- the Rockies sent their former catcher and current backup first baseman, Wilin Rosario, to Triple-A Albuquerque. Rosario wasn’t happy. Nick Groke of the Denver Post quotes him:"I don't feel good," Rosario said. "I'd be lying to you if I said that. I need to be here. I'm playing at a big-league level.”It...

Optimizing Tyler Matek's starts

Personal catchers are nothing new in baseball. Every catcher has different tendencies (as does every pitcher), so it's not surprising that certain catchers would mesh better with certain pitchers. Ryan Hammon at Rockies Zingers thinks Colorado has such a relationship between Tyler Matzek and Michael McKenry. Hammon takes a look at Matzkek's SIRERA -- an ERA-estimator similar to FIP...

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

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – No one would dare suggest that the Rockies have figured out how to pitch. Their 22-year history indicates that they may never figure it out, and parts of their spring already suggest, “Here we go again.” Ace left-hander Jorge De La Rosa is down with a groin strain. Righty Kyle Kendrick will start Opening Day despite a career 4.42 ERA. Righty Jhoulys Chacin...

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. But rather than trading the high salaries of Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez and rebuilding, the Rockies instead dumped GM Dan O’Dowd and replaced him with Jeff Bridich in hopes that a change...
