Player News - Rockies

Date: Team: Pos:

Trevor Story left Saturday's game against the Mets with a jammed left thumb.

His X-rays came back negative and the Rockies are calling him day-to-day. Story went 1-for-2 with a single before exiting in the fourth inning. Cristhian Adames took his place at shortstop and will probably get the start there on Sunday.

Tyler Chatwood spun seven innings of one-run ball in a 6-1 win over the Mets on Friday.

While he walked four batters, the only damage came on a solo homer from James Loney in the second inning. Perhaps Chatwood should change his nickname to Hawk or Animal, because he’s a Road Warrior. He now owns a 1.30 ERA through nine starts on the road this season. Not surprisingly, he hasn’t been nearly as effective at home, where he has a 5.69 ERA in 10 starts. He gets the Dodgers at Coors Field next week.

Carlos Gonzalez went 2-for-5 with a homer and four RBI in Friday’s victory over the Mets.

CarGo got the Rockies on the board with an RBI double in the first inning before slugging a long three-run blast (an estimated 448 feet) in the ninth inning to put the game out of reach. He has now hit safely in 11 straight games, though this was his first multi-hit game since July 18. He’s hitting .317/.369/.549 through 99 games on the year to go along with 21 homers and 66 RBI. Trade chatter has been quiet in recent days with the Rockies playing well.
Jul 29 - 10:58 PM

Mark Reynolds went 2-for-4 with a solo homer against the Mets on Friday.

Reynolds gave the Rockies some insurance in the eighth with a rocket to left off Erik Goeddel. He’s now up to 11 homers on the year. The veteran slugger has surprised with a .274/.350/.445 batting line through 94 games this season, though he has unsurprisingly done most of his damage at Coors Field.

Ryan Raburn was scratched from the Rockies starting lineup on Friday due to a left knee contusion.

He's listed as day-to-day. David Dahl will start in his place in left field and bat seventh for the Rockies on Friday against the Mets.
Jul 29 - 6:48 PM

David Dahl was a late addition to the Rockies starting lineup on Friday as Ryan Raburn was scratched with a left knee contusion.

The hot-hitting rookie will start in left field and bat seventh for the Rockies against Steven Matz and the Mets.
Jul 29 - 6:46 PM

David Dahl is not in the Rockies' lineup Friday.

He'll sit against Mets lefty Steven Matz. Ryan Raburn is in left field.
Jul 29 - 3:35 PM

The Blue Jays and Rockies have had trade discussions about Boone Logan.

The Blue Jays have put an emphasis on improving their bullpen by adding veterans Jason Grilli and Joaquin Benoit and now they have their sights set on Logan. Toronto's primary lefty out of the bullpen has been Brett Cecil, who is 0-6 with a 6.00 ERA. Logan has pitched to a solid 2.48 ERA over 43 appearances this year. The Giants have also checked in on the 31-year-old left-hander.
Jul 28 - 7:38 PM

Tyler Anderson held the Mets to one run over six innings Thursday, taking a no-decision in a 2-1 victory.

Anderson picked up five strikeouts while allowing seven hits and zero walks. He was in line to take a tough-luck loss before the Rockies rallied for a pair of runs in the ninth inning. Anderson has been the Rockies' most reliable starter since entering the rotation, putting up a 3.33 ERA and 1.28 WHIP over nine outings. He'll try to keep it going his next time out versus the Dodgers.
Jul 28 - 4:47 PM

Carlos Estevez nailed down his 11th save of the season with a perfect ninth inning in Thursday's win over the Mets.

After Jeurys Familia blew a save in the top of the ninth, Estevez protected a one-run lead with ease in the bottom of the frame with a flyout, strikeout and groundout, throwing only eight pitches. Estevez is walking too many guys, but he's blown just one save chance in 12 tries since taking over the closing duties.
Jul 28 - 4:44 PM

Trevor Story went 2-for-4 and scored the game-tying run in Thursday's comeback win over the Mets.

Story led off the ninth inning with a single and stole second base. He then came around to score on a fielder's choice as the Rockies completed a come-from-behind victory. The rookie shortstop is 3-for-16 at the plate so far this week following last week's National League Player of the Week award.
Jul 28 - 4:33 PM

Carlos Gonzalez said he's open to shifting to first base for the Rockies.

That might be where the Rockies have to put him next year -- or perhaps down the stretch this year -- if they don't trade him ahead of the August 1 deadline. David Dahl arrived in the majors this week, prospect Raimel Tapia is going to arrive eventually, and Gerardo Parra and Charlie Blackmon are both locked in for the next couple of years. CarGo is under contract for $20 million in 2017 and can then become a free agent. "We have some really good outfielders, and prospects coming up," Gonzalez said Wednesday. "So if (moving to first base) is something that will be for our benefit, that’s something that I would definitely do. I love playing in Denver, I feel at home playing there."

Jon Gray led the Rockies to a 3-1 victory on Wednesday by holding the Orioles to one run in seven innings, allowing five hits and two walks while fanning three.

His record improves to 7-4 with a 3.94 ERA. His owners will happily take the win without complaining about the lack of strikeouts today. For the season Gray has averaged more than a strikeout per inning (114 whiffs in 109 2/3 innings) but he wasn't missing bats in this game. He lines up for two starts at home next week, which presents his owners with a dilemma if they fear Coors Field.
Jul 27 - 10:56 PM

Carlos Estevez pitched a clean ninth inning with one strikeout to lock down his 10th save of the season on Wednesday.

He stumbled into the closer's role in Colorado a few weeks ago after the guys ahead of him got hurt, and has pitched plenty well enough to hold onto the job for awhile. Pitching in Coors Field would leave even the best relievers prone to the occasional blowup. Estevez's high walk rate is reason for concern but it hasn't hurt him too badly yet. He has 42 strikeouts and 17 walks in 37 1/3 innings to go with his 3.86 ERA.
Jul 27 - 10:47 PM

David Dahl cracked his first career home run while going 1-for-4 on Wednesday night.

The rookie was playing his third game since being called up on Monday. He could be a very solid all-around fantasy stat producer in Coors Field. He had 18 homers, 17 steals and a .314 batting average in the minors this year.
