Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-4 with a double and triple in Saturday's win over the Cardinals.

With the big game, Blackmon's now hit six triples. He's slashing .292/.361/.464 with 12 homers and 44 RBI. The Rockies are playing out the string, but that's not Blackmon's fault, and he's hitting toward career highs in multiple offensive categories to this point in the season.
Aug 1 - 11:35 PM

Jorge De La Rosa pitched well in Saturday's win over the Cardinals, yielding two runs on seven hits over 6 2/3 innings.

De La Rosa struck out four without walking a batter. Outside of solitary runs in the fourth and seventh innings, he kept the Cardinal offense at bay. He needed a start like this, as he had allowed six runs in each of his last two outings. De La Rosa holds a 4.87 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 92/46 K/BB ratio in 97 innings. Up next on the docket, a road start against the Nationals.
Aug 1 - 11:26 PM

Rockies recalled OF Kyle Parker from Triple-A Albuquerque.

The move was expected after Corey Dickerson went down with a rib injury. Parker hasn't fared well in the big leagues, batting only .222 with 14 strikeouts in 27 lifetime at-bats. He did hit a single in his only at-bat of the season June 10 against St. Louis.
Aug 1 - 6:32 PM

Rockies recalled RHP Scott Oberg from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Oberg earned his promotion by allowing just one run over seven relief appearances for Albuquerque. The 25-year-old has struggled to keep the ball in the yard this season, surrendering eight homers in only 31 2/3 innings.
Aug 1 - 6:22 PM

Rockies designated LHP Aaron Laffey for assignment.

The Rockies needed to clear a roster spot for Christian Bergman, who came off the disabled list on Saturday. It's the second time in the last month he's been DFA'd. The veteran owns a 3.68 ERA in three big league appearances this season.
Aug 1 - 6:07 PM

Rockies activated RHP Christian Bergman from the 15-day disabled list.

He missed about a month with a shoulder injury. Though he's only made one start this year, Bergman could be asked to replace Kyle Kendrick (shoulder inflammation) in the starting rotation. The right-hander has logged a frustrating 4.66 ERA in 19 outings this year.
Aug 1 - 6:02 PM

Rockies placed RHP Kyle Kendrick on the 15-day disabled list with shoulder inflammation.

He left Friday's start after throwing just 25 pitches. Kendrick could be dealing with a rotator cuff injury, which sometimes requires surgery. His roster spot will be absorbed by right-hander Scott Oberg.
Aug 1 - 5:57 PM

Thomas Harding of reports that the Rockies are expected to recall Kyle Parker from Triple-A Albuquerque on Saturday.

He'll take the place of the injured Corey Dickerson. The 25-year-old is hitting .280/.326/.431 with nine homers and 58 RBI in 93 games at Triple-A, though he isn't likely to see enough playing time to be fantasy relevant outside of NL-only formats.
Aug 1 - 1:39 PM

Rockies placed OF Corey Dickerson on the 15-day disabled list with non-displaced fractures of two ribs.

An MRI exam revealed Friday that Dickerson had sustained non-displaced fractures of two ribs on his right side while diving for a line drive during Thursday's contest against the Cardinals. It's the third time that the outfielder has been forced to the disabled list this season. There is no clear timetable for his return at the moment.
Aug 1 - 10:20 AM

Kyle Kendrick will undergo an MRI exam on his injured shoulder on Monday.

The Rockies believe that the injury is to his rotator cuff but remain hopeful that it isn't too serious. Either way, a trip to the disabled list could be in the works for the veteran right-hander.
Jul 31 - 11:48 PM

Kyle Kendrick was forced to leave Friday's start against the Cardinals due to inflammation in his right shoulder.

Before departing, the right-hander had surrendered a pair of runs on four hits in his lone inning of work, including a home run by Matt Carpenter. He's considered day-to-day and should be ready to take his next turn through the rotation on Wednesday against the Mariners. He and his 6.43 ERA should continue to be avoided for fantasy purposes.
Jul 31 - 9:21 PM

Rockies manager Walt Weiss announced Friday that John Axford has been removed from his role as the team's closer.

Weiss said Friday, "I had a conversation with John a little earlier and I told him I was going to get him out of that ninth inning for a little bit and let him catch his breath". He has blown four saves in his last five appearances and has had difficulty finding the strike zone. Rafael Betancourt and Tommy Kahnle are the two most likely candidates to take over the role.

Corey Dickerson underwent an MRI exam on his sore ribs on Friday.

The results of that exam are not yet known. He was removed from Thursday's contest against the Cardinals with a right rib contusion sustained from diving for a line drive in the outfield. More should be known on his status later Friday.
Jul 31 - 7:02 PM

Corey Dickerson (rib) is not in the Rockies' lineup Friday.

Dickerson left Thursday's game with a right rib contusion. He's day-to-day. Brandon Barnes is in left field Friday in his place.
Jul 31 - 6:17 PM

ESPN's Jayson Stark reports that the Rockies have told teams they will revisit trading Carlos Gonzalez next month or over the winter.

They evidently haven't been able to find a robust enough market for CarGo this month. Gonzalez is one of the hottest hitters in baseball with a .431/.481/.958 batting line and 11 homers over his last 18 games.
