Tom Murphy (wrist) could begin a rehab assignment as soon as next week.

Murphy's recovery from a hairline fracture in his right forearm and wrist has come along more slowly than expected, but obviously he's made nice progress of late. Considering how long he's been sidelined, Murphy's rehab assignment figures to be a pretty lengthy one. Still, he's a guy worth stashing now if he was dropped in your league.

Jon Gray (foot) hopes to throw a bullpen session this weekend without wearing a walking boot.

He's been throwing bullpen sessions while wearing the boot but is aiming to ditch it this weekend. Gray will require at least three rehab starts before rejoining the Rockies' rotation, so it's going to be a while. Manager Bud Black indicated earlier this week that he expected Gray back in three weeks, so a mid-June return looks like the best-case scenario.

Tyler Anderson pitched seven innings of one-run ball Thursday in a no-decision against the Phillies.

If Jon Gray had been healthy, we wonder if the Rockies might have sent Anderson down at the end of April with his ERA at 7.71 and no starts of even six innings in length. He's been far better this month, allowing a total of seven earned runs in 24 2/3 innings. He's struck out 32 in four starts in May after totaling 24 in six in April.

Mark Reynolds, who was out of the lineup the last two games, went 0-for-4 before being removed from Thursday's game against the Phillies.

No injuries were reported for Reynolds, but the Rockies used Gerardo Parra over him in back-to-back games before returning him to the lineup today. Reynolds is without an extra-base hit in his last 10 games, though he's still driven in eight runs with nine hits during that span. His OPS, which was as high as 1.092 on May 10, is down to .948 now.

DJ LeMahieu is out of the Rockies' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon against the Phillies.

It looks to be a routine day of rest. Alexi Amarista will start at second base and bat seventh for the Rockies against Phillies right-hander Vince Velasquez.
May 25 - 11:10 AM

Tyler Chatwood allowed just one base hit and struck out eight batters in seven shutout innings to beat the Phillies 7-2 on Wednesday.

He carried a no-hitter into the fifth inning when catcher Andrew Knapp singled. Chatwood walked four batters and picked one of them off base. He threw 112 pitches and had to be pulled after seven innings. His record improves to 4-6 with a 4.50 ERA and 1.33 WHIP. He will face the Mariners and Padres in a two-start week coming up next.
May 25 - 12:04 AM

Carlos Gonzalez went 3-for-5 and crushed a three-run bomb against the Phillies on Wednesday.

His big blast was the crowning blow in his team's seven-run, third-inning outburst. He has really struggled this season but has shown signs of life in recent games. He has his batting average up to .252 with four home runs and 16 RBI through 184 plate appearances. He hit 25 home runs last year and 40 the year before.
May 24 - 11:54 PM

Charlie Blackmon hit a pair of two-run homers off Zach Eflin as the Rockies beat Phillies 8-2 on Tuesday.

Blackmon struggled on the road in the first month of the year, but he's 14-for-36 with three homers and 13 RBI in eight games during the current trip. It helps that he's faced the Twins, Reds and Phillies in those games, but it's still nice to see.
May 23 - 10:17 PM

German Marquez held the Phillies to one run over six innings to win Tuesday.

Marquez has allowed two runs over 19 innings in his last three starts. It's going to be awfully difficult to take him out of the rotation after Jon Gray returns next month. He's 3-2 with a 3.86 ERA.
May 23 - 10:15 PM

Mark Reynolds is getting the night off Tuesday versus the Phillies.

Ian Desmond will start at first base and bat fifth versus Philadelphia right-hander Zach Eflin. Gerardo Parra is in left field and batting sixth.
May 23 - 3:57 PM

Trevor Story is not in the Rockies' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Phillies.

Story was activated from the disabled list Tuesday afternoon after missing two weeks with a left shoulder strain, but he's on the bench versus Philadelphia right-hander Zach Eflin. Alexi Amarista will start at shortstop and bat seventh for the visiting Rockies. Story has posted a disappointing .180/.289/.396 batting line in 33 games this season.
May 23 - 3:56 PM

Rockies optioned RHP Jeff Hoffman to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Hoffman was excellent in a spot-start against the Phillies on Monday, allowing just one run over seven innings with seven strikeouts. However, there's not a spot available in the regular rotation right now. He'll get another chance soon enough.
May 23 - 3:32 PM

Rockies activated SS Trevor Story from the 10-day disabled list.

As indicated Rockies manager Bud Black, Story will return to finish out the series in Philadelphia. The 24-year-old was batting just .180/.289/.396 through 33 games prior to landing on the disabled list with a left shoulder strain earlier this month. The Rockies and fantasy owners will have to hope that the time away did him some good.
May 23 - 3:30 PM

Trevor Story (shoulder) could be activated from the disabled list as soon as Tuesday.

Rockies manager Bud Black passed along the news during an appearance on MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM. Story, out since May 11 with a left shoulder strain, went 3-for-11 (.273) with a homer over four games during his minor league rehab assignment. The 24-year-old was batting just .180/.289/.396 through 33 games prior to the injury, but the power has still been there and he obviously plays half of his games in a great park for offense.
May 23 - 11:21 AM

Rockies manager Bud Black said during an appearance on MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM on Tuesday that Jon Gray (foot) is "three weeks away from pitching for us."

This matches up with a recent prediction from Rockies' beat writer Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post. Gray suffered a stress fracture in his left foot last month and has been throwing despite being in a boot. His recovery is taking longer than originally anticipated, but the Rockies have managed to put together the best record in the NL without him. They'll happily welcome him back, of course.
