Rockies recalled RHP David Hale from Triple-A Albuquerque.

He'll function as the 26th man on the roster for Saturday's doubleheader against the Giants, making the start in the nightcap. He has been a disaster thus far at Triple-A, posting a 6.93 ERA and 2.07 WHIP over 24 2/3 innings.
May 23 - 2:49 PM

David Hale will start the second game of Saturday's doubleheader versus the Giants.

He'll be matched up against Yusmeiro Petit. Hale began the season on the disabled list with an oblique injury and has posted a 6.93 ERA over five Triple-A outings. He'll be sent back down after the spot start.
May 22 - 5:24 PM

Rockies activated RHP David Hale from the 15-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Hale is over his oblique injury but will have to work his way back to the majors. He figures to be used in Albuquerque's rotation.
Apr 27 - 6:06 PM

David Hale (oblique) will make a rehab appearance at High-A Modesto on Monday.

Hale is working his way back from a strained oblique. The goal Monday is for him to throw about 45 pitches. Prior to getting hurt, Hale had been in the mix for a rotation spot. If he comes back as a starter, Christian Bergman might have to settle for bullpen duty.
Apr 18 - 8:49 PM

Rockies placed RHP David Hale on the 15-day disabled list with a strained oblique.

Hale suffered the injury in late March. It's not clear what his role will be when his health returns.
Apr 5 - 6:32 PM

David Hale (oblique) will play catch from 90 feet Sunday.

Hale was scratched from an outing last week due to a strained oblique. While he says he's not feeling any pain, it's not clear when he'll be cleared to throw off a mound. Hale will almost surely begin the season on the disabled list.
Mar 29 - 2:10 PM

David Hale was scratched from Thursday's scheduled start due to an oblique strain.

Hale said he'll shut things down for 2-3 days before trying to throw again. It's bad timing, as the Rockies are already short on healthy starters and Hale was a favorite for a spot. Oblique injuries are very tricky, so the disabled list is a real possibility.
Mar 25 - 12:48 PM

David Hale allowed four runs -- one earned -- on five hits over 2 1/3 innings in Saturday's Cactus League loss to the Indians.

Hale struck out two and didn't walk a batter in his time on the mound. He owns a 5.79 ERA in spring games. On the bright side, Hale has struck out 11 over 9 1/3 innings of work. With Jorge De La Rosa ailing, Hale could find his way into the Rockies' rotation to start the year.
Mar 21 - 7:12 PM

Rockies acquired RHPs David Hale and Gus Schlosser from the Braves in exchange for Cs Jose Briceno and Chris O’Dowd.

Hale, 27, has posted a 3.02 ERA but has struck out just 58 over 98 1/3 innings the last two seasons with the Braves. He'll be going from a pretty pitcher-friendly park to an extremely hitter-friendly one, but his groundball tendencies should help at least. Hale should compete for a spot in the Rockies' rotation.
Jan 30 - 3:38 PM

David Hale struggled in Thursday's spot start against the Pirates, taking the loss after giving up a pair of runs in 4 2/3 innings.

Hale allowed five hits, including a home run to Travis Snider, while walking four and striking out four. The right-hander was filling in for the injured Mike Minor. Hale, serving mostly out of the bullpen, is 4-5 with a 3.30 ERA, a 1.47 WHIP, and a 44/39 K/BB ratio.

David Hale will start Thursday's series finale against the Pirates in place of Mike Minor.

Minor was shut down after feeling some pain in his left shoulder, so Hale will take his final turn of the season. Hale is 2-0 with a 2.22 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 20 strikeouts in five starts this season.

David Hale pitched three innings and allowed five hits and two runs in relief of Mike Minor on Saturday.

Hale had to warm early on Saturday, as Mike Minor lasted just one inning against the Mets before exiting with an apparent left shoulder injury. Hale came on to start the second. He allowed a Dilson Herrera two-run home run with out in the inning, but settled in after that. The rest of his time on the mound was relatively uneventful. Over three innings, he gave up five hits, walked two and struck out one. Hale's made the occasional spot start for the Braves, while working mostly long relief out of the pen. He holds a 3.27 ERA and 1.44 WHIP this season.

David Hale tossed five innings of one-run ball to help the Braves to a doubleheader sweep of the Phillies on Saturday.

It was an impressive spot start for the 26-year-old righty, who gave up only four hits and a walk. He now has a 3.02 ERA on the year and will head back to long relief.
Sat, Jun 28, 2014 10:33:00 PM

David Hale will make a spot start for the Braves in Saturday's doubleheader against the Phillies.

Hale has a 3.14 ERA in 48 2/3 innings this season for the Braves, but he's been pitching out of the bullpen since early May and is doubtful to go very long on Saturday in Philadelphia. The 26-year-old right-hander can be ignored in fantasy leagues.
