Rockies designated RHP David Hale for assignment.

He's posted a 6.27 ERA over 80 1/3 innings since joining the Rockies at the beginning of last season. It's possible Hale could have some success in another environment, though, so perhaps he'll draw some interest on waivers.

Rockies recalled RHP David Hale from Triple-A Albuquerque.

He'll serve as an extra arm in the bullpen while Nick Hundley is on the 7-day concussion DL. Hale appeared in 17 games for the Rockies in 2015, compiling a 6.09 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 61/20 K/BB ratio over 78 1/3 innings.

Rockies optioned RHP David Hale to Triple-A Albuquerque.

A rotation spot has opened up with Jon Gray (abdomen) slated to start the season on the disabled list, but Hale apparently isn't under consideration for it.

David Hale (hamstring) appeared in a "B" game on Thursday.

Hale has been limited all camp by a hamstring injury, but Rockies manager Walt Weiss says that the right-hander is "good to go" now. "We've got to keep an eye on him with some of the peripheral stuff -- pitchers aren't hitting yet -- but covering first base and fielding and those types of things."
Mar 17 - 7:02 PM

David Hale had to halt a bullpen session on Saturday after pulling a hamstring.

It's unclear at this point how long this might set him back. Hale missed a large portion of spring training last year with an oblique injury and also dealt with a groin injury during the season. The right-hander is competing for a rotation spot this spring.

David Hale allowed four runs on six hits over five innings against the Diamondbacks on Thursday.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Wed, Aug 19, 2015 01:48:00 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.
Tue, Aug 18, 2015 05:15:00 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.
