He struck out three and walked two. The 27-year-old finished out the year plugging the rotation hole left by Yohan Flande's absence (bruised knee). He didn't acquit himself well, finishing the campaign with an unsightly 6.09 ERA. Oct 2 - 12:54 AM

David Hale pitched well in a victory over the Dodgers on Friday, allowing just one run on five hits over his five innings.

Hale punched out four and walked two in his spot start. The only damage against him came on an RBI groundout off the bat of Adrian Gonzalez in the first inning. The right-hander has had a rough go of it this season in Colorado, registering a 6.01 ERA and 1.46 ERA over 73 1/3 innings. It's unclear if this strong effort will earn him another start or if he'll ride out the remainder of the season in the bullpen.

David Hale will make a spot start Friday night against the Dodgers.

Yohan Flande is being skipped with knee and ankle issues. Hale owns a rough 6.32 ERA and 1.46 WHIP in 68 1/3 innings this season at the major league. He should be avoided for fantasy purposes against Los Angeles.
Sep 22 - 5:57 PM

Rockies recalled RHP David Hale from Triple-A Albuquerque.

The 27-year-old has appeared in 11 games for the Rockies this season (10 starts), compiling a troublesome 6.15 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 49/15 K/BB ratio. He'll function as a long reliever out of the bullpen.
Sep 5 - 9:13 AM

Rockies optioned RHP David Hale to Triple-A Albuquerque.

He's clearing room for the return of Chad Bettis (elbow). Hale allowed 10 runs over two starts after returning from the disabled list and has a 6.15 ERA over 60 innings for the Rockies this season.
Aug 24 - 6:48 PM

David Hale matched his season high with nine strikeouts over six innings in a losing effort against the Mets on Sunday.

That was the positive thing to take away from his outing. He also surrendered four runs on six hits and a pair of walks while uncorking a franchise record four wild pitches. Two of the errant pitches each produced runs for the Mets in the second inning. Hale will head into Saturday's start against the Pirates in Pittsburgh with a 6.15 ERA and 1.45 WHIP. He remains an unattractive option in all fantasy formats.
Aug 23 - 7:05 PM

David Hale allowed six runs over five innings against the Nationals in his return from the disabled list on Tuesday.

Making his first start since July 4, Hale gave up eight hits and walked three in the start, and the Nationals scored in four of the five innings in which Hale pitched. Hale's ERA jumped to 6.17 with the poor outing. He'll look for a better result Sunday against the Mets.
Aug 19 - 1:48 AM

Rockies activated RHP David Hale from the 15-day disabled list.

Hale will return to the Rockies' rotation Tuesday night against the Nationals after missing five weeks with a left groin strain. He has a 5.69 ERA in 49 innings this season at the major league level and is obviously a poor fantasy bet versus Washington.
Aug 18 - 5:15 PM

David Hale (groin) is expected to rejoin the Rockies' rotation on Tuesday versus the Nationals.

A spot in the rotation opened up following Eddie Butler's demotion. Hale has been out for over a month with a groin injury but has made it through three rehab outings without any issues. He holds a 5.69 ERA over 49 innings for the Rockies this season.
Aug 14 - 5:59 PM

Rockies placed LHP David Hale on the 15-day disabled list with a left groin strain.

Hale sustained the injury in Thursday's game against the Braves. As the strain is believed to be minor, he should require just the minimum time on the disabled list and be ready to return in late July.
Jul 10 - 7:12 PM

David Hale was removed from Thursday's game against the Braves due to a mild left groin strain.

It doesn't sound as though the injury is serious, and given the long layoff with the All-Star break he shouldn't be forced to miss a start.
Jul 10 - 12:06 AM

David Hale was forced to leave Thursday's game against the Braves with an unknown injury in the third inning.

Hale, who had been scheduled to start on Friday, was called upon after Kyle Kendrick worked the first inning then faced a two-hour rain delay. He surrendered just one hit over his 1 2/3 innings of work, but tweaked something and walked off the field with team trainer Keith Dugger. The Rockies should have an update on his status shortly.
Jul 9 - 11:44 PM

David Hale gave up five runs in seven innings, taking the loss on Monday against the Athletics.

Home runs were his undoing, giving up a pair of two-run home runs in the first inning and then a solo shot in the fourth. He gave up nine hits overall, issuing no walks but striking out only two batters. Hale has an ugly 5.95 ERA with a 1.39 WHIP and a 32/7 K/BB ratio in 42 1/3 innings. The right-hander is ticketed for a road start against the Diamondbacks next.
Jun 30 - 12:55 AM

David Hale was tagged for five runs over five innings Thursday in a loss to the Astros.

Hale allowed 10 hits (including a solo homer to Preston Tucker) while walking one. Things could have been worse, but he escaped a jam in his final inning of work. On the bright side, he matched a career-high with nine strikeouts. Still, he's not a fantasy option.
Jun 18 - 6:53 PM

David Hale surrendered four runs over six innings during Saturday's loss to the Marlins.

Giancarlo Stanton was Hale's nemesis in this game and it was Stanton who got the better of the pitcher. Hale surrendered a two-run double to Stanton in the first inning and a two-run homer to the slugger in the sixth to account for all four runs. Overall, Hale struck out five and walked three. He's the owner of a 4.56 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 19/3 K/BB ratio over 25 2/3 innings. There's not much to love on a fantasy level here. Hale takes on the Astros in a home start next time he toes the rubber.
