Nolan Arenado clubbed his 23rd home run of the season as the Rockies fell to the Cardinals on Wednesday.

Arenado got the scoring started with a two-run shot off of Carlos Martinez in the first inning. He also singled and walked in the ballgame, finishing the night 2-for-3 with a pair of runs scored and three RBI. He's having an MVP-caliber season, slashing .313/.360/.591 with 23 homers and 89 RBI.

Jeff Hoffman was knocked around in Wednesday's loss to the Cardinals, giving up seven runs (six earned) on seven hits across four innings of work.

The rookie right-hander walked three and struck out three on the night. Most of the damage against him came during a five-run uprising in the fourth inning, highlighted by a two-run double from Matt Carpenter. Hoffman will carry a disappointing 5.58 ERA and 1.38 WHIP into Wednesday's start against the Mets.

Rockies transferred LHP Tyler Anderson to the 60-day disabled list.

Anderson underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee near the end of June. The procedure was expected to require a recovery period in the vicinity of four weeks. With this transfer to the 60-day disabled list, Anderson will not be eligible to rejoin the team until late August.

Rockies acquired RHP Pat Neshek from the Phillies for INF Jose Gomez, RHP J.D. Hammer and RHP Alejandro Requena.

The Nationals, Dodgers and Red Sox had all previously been linked to Neshek, but Colorado ultimately comes away with the prize. The veteran reliever has put in a sparkling season to date, pitching to a 1.12 ERA, 0.81 WHIP and 45/5 K/BB ratio across 40 1/3 innings. This fine body of work earned him a berth at the All-Star Game.

Ian Desmond (calf) is not available for Wednesday's game against the Cardinals.

Desmond required a stint on the disabled list for a right calf injury earlier this month, then came back after the All-Star break only to re-injure that same calf in Tuesday's game against the Cards. With a natural off day on Thursday, Desmond now has two days to rest up before the Rockies take on the Nationals for a three-game series this weekend.

The Rockies will skip Antonio Senzatela next time through the rotation.

Senzatela will not be starting next time out, but he will be available out of the bullpen. The Rockies have two off days in the next five days, hence why they have the luxury to play around with their rotation. The 22-year-old Senzatela is the owner of a 4.84 ERA in 102 1/3 innings this season.
Jul 26 - 7:39 PM

Rockies activated RHP Tyler Chatwood from the 10-day disabled list.

Chatwood will rejoin the Rockies as a reliever on Wednesday night in St. Louis after missing the last week-and-a-half with a right calf strain. The right-hander has a 4.74 ERA and 1.45 WHIP in 106 1/3 innings this season -- all as a starting pitcher.
Jul 26 - 4:07 PM

Rockies placed RHP Greg Holland on the paternity leave list.

Holland will be away from the club for the next few days to welcome a child with his wife Lacey. Rockies manager Bud Black will probably play the matchups if a save opportunity arises while Holland is gone.

Trevor Story said he felt tightness in his left calf during Tuesday's loss to the Cardinals.

Story didn't really show it, belting a game-tying solo homer in the top of the eighth inning and making a couple nice defensive plays at shortstop. He could get the day off Wednesday.
Jul 26 - 12:36 AM

Jon Gray allowed just two runs but lasted only five frames on Tuesday in a no-decision versus the Cardinals.

Gray was taken deep by Paul DeJong with a two-run blast in the first inning. He was able to keep the Cards off the scoreboard from there on out, but it wasn’t easy with eight hits allowed over five frames. Gray did punch out six batters. The young righty was superb in his first start back from the disabled list but hasn’t been great since. He’ll get the Mets next.

Trevor Story clubbed a solo homer in Tuesday's loss in St. Louis.

Story launched a deep one over the left field wall in the eighth inning to knot the game up before the Cardinals walked the Rockies off in the bottom of the ninth. He's now homered in three of his last six games and is batting .353 with three dingers and 11 RBI over his last eight contests.
Jul 25 - 11:38 PM

Ian Desmond was removed from Tuesday's game against the Cardinals after re-injuring his right calf.

It's the same calf he strained on July 2, and that ailment required a disabled list stint. Rockies manager Bud Black called Tuesday's exit "precautionary," but it's possible Desmond could be looking at another extended absence. He was 0-for-1 with a strikeout before getting replaced at first base by Mark Reynolds.
Jul 25 - 9:36 PM

Rockies recalled RHP Carlos Estevez from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Estevez has a hideous 8.10 ERA in 18 relief appearances this season in the majors, but the Rockies were desperate for a fresh bullpen arm. He'll work in low-leverage spots.
Jul 25 - 4:27 PM

Rockies optioned RHP Jairo Diaz to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Diaz has a 9.00 ERA and 3.40 WHIP in five innings of relief this season at the major league level. Carlos Estevez will take his spot on Colorado's active roster.
Jul 25 - 4:26 PM

Tyler Chatwood (calf) said he felt strong after throwing one simulated inning Monday.

Chatwood, who landed on the disabled list earlier this month with a strained right calf, said he threw about 20 pitches. He's eligible to return on Wednesday, but it's unclear if he'll be ready by then. Chatwood owns a 4.74 ERA over 19 starts this season and could pitch out of the bullpen upon his return.
