Giants' Matt Duffy comes one hit short of the cycle two straight days

Giants third baseman Matt Duffy came within one hit of the cycle for the second straight day on Sunday. On Saturday, Duffy needed the elusive triple. On Sunday Duffy only needed a single -- and he nearly had it. In the seventh inning he hit a liner down the first base line which deflected off the glove of Rockies first baseman Wilin Rosario. The deflected ball was called foul, but...

Colorado Rockies would be well served to learn some lessons in San Francisco

  It must be nice to be a fan of the San Francisco Giants. Those who watch the Colorado Rockies can only be jealous. Saturday afternoon at AT&T Park was the latest example of who the Giants are, from top-to-bottom of their entire organization. The Rockies, up three runs early, were never able to get comfortable, and were never able to bury the Giants for a simple reason. The...

The longest home runs for the week ending June 11th

Last week, Joc Pederson began to full level with Giancarlo Stanton on our year-long totals. Apparently, that wasn’t cool with Giancarlo, because he took back his crown with a vengeance this week. 1. Giancarlo Stanton vs Eddie Butler, 484 feet (June 5th) Coors Field + Giancarlo Stanton = PAIN. 2. Wilin Rosario vs David Phelps, 457 feet (June 6th) Wilin Rosario hasn’t received...

Colorado Rockies doomed by bad decisions in loss to Marlins

  As good as Saturday was, Sunday was really bad for the Colorado Rockies. The team was plagued by bad decisions in their Sunday loss to the Marlins, in which the Rockies dropped the game and the series after a 10th inning solo home run gave the Marlins a 3-2 decision. With the game tied 2-2, the Rockies had a great chance to take a lead in the 7th inning. Carlos Gonzalez had already...

Wilin Rosario homered twice and Carlos Gonzalez hit a three-run shot to back the solid pitching of Chris Rusin, and the Rockies shrugged off another rain delay at Coors Field to beat the Miami Marlins 10-5 Saturday. ''Jumping right out of the gate, it was important,'' Gonzalez said. ''This is how this team is built, and...

Rockies' Paulsen making case for first base in Morneau's absence

With Justin Morneau on the disabled list due to the lingering effects of prior concussions, the Rockies have been splitting playing time at first base between former catcher Wilin Rosario and rookie Ben Paulsen. Rosario has started at first base 14 times since May 14, and Paulsen has played at least parts of 12 games at first since being called up from Triple A on May 19. Manager...

Walt Weiss compliments Wilin Rosario's at-bats

Since being recalled from Triple A, Wilin Rosario has been hitting like he doesn’t want to get sent back down. He’s hitting .293 with five multi-hit games since May 10. MLB.com quotes manager Walt Weiss on Rosario:"I've seen him lay off some tough breaking balls, and I think he's made an adjustment there," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said on Wednesday.

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 make a series of roster moves

In need of pitching help, the Colorado Rockies made a series of roster moves ahead of Thursday night’s win over the Los Angeles Dodgers. Chad Bettis was recalled from triple-A Albuquerque to fill the spot in the starting rotation that was vacated when Tyler Matzek was sent down to triple-A last week. Bettis made his 2015 debut on Thursday night. The 26-year-old righty allowed...

DENVER, Colo. (AP) The Colorado Rockies have optioned left-hander Tyler Matzek to Triple-A Albuquerque, and recalled catcher-first baseman Wilin Rosario.

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...

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...
