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.
Jun 13 - 7:00 PM

David Hale easily won Monday, limiting the Cardinals to three runs in seven innings as the Rockies skated to an 11-3 victory.

Hale had a five-run cushion after one inning and was ahead 10-1 after four, so he was in no danger of losing at any point. The right-hander did allow two home runs -- solo homers to Kolten Wong and Jon Jay -- but gave up only six hits overall while walking none and striking out seven. Hale has been solid in three starts this season, carrying a 4.12 ERA with a 1.07 WHIP and a 14/0 K/BB ratio over 19 2/3 innings. Due to his home ballpark and inability to consistently miss bats, we're not recommending him for fantasy purposes. He'll toe the rubber against the Marlins in Miami next.
Jun 8 - 11:33 PM

Rockies recalled RHP David Hale from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Hale will start on Monday against the Cardinals and could potentially earn more outings should he pitch well. The righty holds a 4.26 ERA over two starts for the Rockies this season.
Jun 8 - 5:05 PM

Rockies optioned RHP David Hale to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Hale was decent in a spot start during Tuesday's doubleheader, allowing four runs in six innings versus the Dodgers. He should get another shot at some point.
Jun 3 - 2:06 PM

David Hale, making a spot start, took a no-decision in the second game of a doubleheader Tuesday after yielding four runs in six innings as the Rockies fell to the Dodgers.

All four runs came on three home runs: an Enrique Hernandez solo home run in the first, a Joc Pederson solo homer in the third, and a two-run shot by Adrian Gonzalez also in the third. Hale gave up seven hits overall while walking none and striking out five. The Rockies could continue to use Hale out of the rotation given Jordan Lyles' toe injury, but as his performance on Tuesday showed, he doesn't have any fantasy appeal. If Hale does start again, he would be on track to face the Cardinals at home.
