Adam Ottavino struck out the side in the ninth Thursday against the Rangers for his first save of the season.
Ottavino probably could have taken the closer's role the day he returned from Tommy John surgery last month, but he had to wait until Carlos Estevez blew back-to-back save chances over the last week. Ottavino has yet to give up a run in 13 innings this season. Aug 11 - 6:39 PM

Date:

Adam Ottavino will replace Carlos Estevez as the Rockies' closer.

Ottavino is essentially getting his old job back, as he briefly served as closer prior to undergoing Tommy John surgery early last season. Estevez's struggles served as the motivation behind the change, but Ottavino has thrown 11 2/3 scoreless innings with a 12/3 K/BB ratio since coming off the disabled list. The Rockies figure to be careful with him, but he needs to be owned in all fantasy leagues.
Aug 9 - 1:39 PM

Rockies activated RHP Adam Ottavino from the 60-day disabled list.

The right-hander has missed the entire season to date as he has recovered from Tommy John surgery. As he acclimates himself to the bullpen, there's a chance he could work his way into the mix for save chances.
Jul 5 - 7:11 PM

Adam Ottavino (elbow) will meet up with the Rockies early this week in San Francisco in order to be evaluated.

That usually means he's slated to come off the disabled list at that time, barring any surprises. Working his way back from Tommy John surgery, Ottavino holds a 5.40 ERA and 12/5 K/BB ratio over 8 1/3 rehab innings between High-A Modesto and Triple-A Albuquerque. It might not take him long to overtake Carlos Estevez as the Rockies' closer.
Jul 3 - 2:59 PM

Adam Ottavino (elbow) will shift his rehab assignment to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Ottavino made four appearances with High-A Modesto -- one bad, three pretty good. The right-hander could return to the Rockies' bullpen next week if everything continues to go smoothly and it wouldn't be a surprise to see him move quickly into a high-leverage role. He's on the long road back from Tommy John surgery.
Jun 21 - 6:07 PM

Adam Ottavino (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Modesto on Friday.

Ottavino is nearing a return from Tommy John. Keep an eye on him for fantasy purposes. The Rockies bullpen is far from settled and if he capitalizes on the shakiness of Jake McGee and the like, the 30-year-old right-hander could be in line for potential saves. In 2014 -- his last full season before injury struck -- Ottavino held a 3.60 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 70/16 K/BB ratio over 65 innings.

Jun 8 - 10:40 PM

Adam Ottavino (elbow) is hoping to face hitters later this month.

Ottavino's recovery from Tommy John surgery is progressing on schedule to this point and he could be ready to rejoin the Rockies' bullpen around the All-Star break. Jake McGee has been up and down as the Rockies' closer, so it's possible Ottavino could eventually get another crack at the ninth inning if he regains his pre-op stuff. Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post thinks Jason Motte (shoulder) could also potentially be in the mix for saves.

Apr 12 - 7:01 PM

Adam Ottavino (elbow) will throw a 15-pitch bullpen session on Friday.

It will be his first time throwing off a mound since last year's Tommy John surgery. The Rockies aren't placing a timetable on Ottavino's return, but he will likely be back around midseason.
Mar 18 - 12:06 PM

Rockies placed RHP Adam Ottavino on the 60-day disabled list with a right elbow injury.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for waiver claim Tony Wolters. Ottavino will be sidelined until around midseason while he works his way back from Tommy John surgery. The 30-year-old could eventually find himself back in the closer role for the Rockies, but that might not happen until 2017.
Feb 19 - 8:43 AM

Rockies signed RHP Adam Ottavino to a three-year $10.4 million contract extension.

The deal buys out the right-hander's last two years of arbitration and his first year of free agency. Ottavino is in the process of recovering from Tommy John surgery and isn't expected to be ready to rejoin the Rockies' bullpen until midway through the 2016 season. The 30-year-old hurler owns a career 3.88 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 254/92 K/BB ratio over 255 innings.

Rockies activated RHP Adam Ottavino from the 60-day disabled list.

The right-hander took over the Rockies closer gig early in the season, but was forced to undergo Tommy John surgery in May which ended his season. He resumed throwing in August and is expected to be ready to rejoin the Rockies bullpen midway through the 2016 season.
Fri, Nov 6, 2015 11:41:00 PM

Adam Ottavino (elbow) began throwing from flat ground on Thursday.

It's the first time the right-hander has been able to throw since undergoing Tommy John surgery in May. He won't be ready to rejoin the Rockies bullpen until midway through the 2016 season.
Thu, Aug 27, 2015 08:55:00 PM

Rockies transferred RHP Adam Ottavino from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move cleared a spot on the 40-man roster for Yohan Flande. Ottavino, of course, is done for the season following Tommy John surgery.
Fri, May 15, 2015 09:06:00 AM

Adam Ottavino underwent Tommy John surgery on his right elbow Thursday.

Ottavino is done for the season and his rehab will likely stretch into the early part of 2016. It's a tough break for the 29-year-old, who recently got his first chance as a closer and appeared primed for a big season. John Axford is now handling save chances for Colorado.
