Michael Cuddyer clobbered a grand slam and drove home a career-high seven runs as the Rockies routed the Diamondbacks 15-3 in Colorado on Friday.

Cuddyer did all of his damage in the second half of the ballgame, smashing his grand slam in the sixth inning, then delivering a bases-clearing double with the bases loaded his next time up in the eighth. There's no doubting his production when he's been on the field, but unfortunately for fantasy owners that hasn't been often enough this season.

Rafael Ynoa had a memorable night at the plate in Friday's thrashing of the Diamondbacks, going 4-for-5 with a pair of doubles and a triple.

Ynoa also drove home three runs. He delivered a run-scoring double off opposing starter Chase Anderson in the fourth inning, then tacked on a two-run triple the following frame. While he profiles best as a utility infielder at the big league level, he's now hitting an impressive .417/.417/.528 in his limited action with the Rockies.

Jordan Lyles picked up his seventh victory of the season on Friday, limiting the Diamondbacks to two runs on nine hits over his six innings of work.

Lyles struck out just one opposing hitter and didn't issue a walk on the night. While he was far from dominant, he was able to keep the D'Backs hitters off-balance and prevent them from mounting any serious scoring threats. He will carry a 4.15 ERA and 1.36 WHIP into his season finale against the Padres in San Diego on Wednesday.

Rockies manager Walt Weiss indicated Thursday that Juan Nicasio is likely to remain in a relief role next season.

Nicasio was demoted to the minors in June after posting a 5.92 ERA over 14 starts, but he holds a much better 3.78 mark and 15/4 K/BB ratio over 16 2/3 frames since returning as a reliever. "I think he's responded well to (the reliever) role," Weiss said. "I think it suits him, in my opinion. To me, going out there and being able to sprint for an inning or two works. He likes to go and attack hitters. With a bullpen role he doesn't have to think about scouting reports as much."

Yohan Flande held the D'Backs to two runs over five innings but was handed a no-decision in Thursday's 7-6 walk-off victory.

Flande pitched well, yielding only two hits and a walk while striking out two. It wasn't until Flande left that the D'Back offense started moving. The lefty now has a 4.91 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 30/15 K/BB ratio. Flande will toe the rubber in San Diego against the Padres on Tuesday in his next outing.

Michael Cuddyer went 3-for-5 with a double, a solo home run, and three runs scored in the Rockies' walk-off win against the D'Backs on Thursday.

Cuddyer put the Rockies on the board with a second-inning solo home run off of Vidal Nuno and scored two more times in the sixth and eighth inning, helping put his team in a position to come back and win. It hasn't been often, but when Cuddyer has been healthy and in the lineup, he's been productive. The 35-year-old is batting .327/.371/.562 with eight home runs and 22 RBI in 175 plate appearances.

Wilin Rosario sent the Rockies home happy, clubbing a walk-off two-run home run in the bottom of the ninth inning on Thursday against the Diamondbacks.

The Rockies had chipped away at the Diamondbacks' five-run lead, scoring twice in the sixth and twice in the eighth to make it 6-5. With two outs and a man on, Rosario took advantage of an Addison Reed offering, sending a 387-foot blast to left-center. The catcher, who finished 4-for-5 on the evening, now has 12 homers on the season with 51 RBI and a .265/.301/.432 slash line.

Nolan Arenado (pneumonia) could miss the rest of the season.

Arenado came out of Sunday's game with a chest contusion and an MRI on Monday revealed signs of pneumonia. He's doing better, but there just might not be enough time for him to make it back at this point.
Sep 18 - 4:53 PM

Corey Dickerson is not in the Rockies' lineup Thursday against the Diamondbacks.

He'll take a seat with left-hander Vidal Nuno pitching for Arizona. Brandon Barnes is starting in left field.
Sep 18 - 4:41 PM

Charlie Blackmon is not in Thursday's lineup against the Diamondbacks.

He's sitting with southpaw Vidal Nuno on the mound. Drew Stubbs will start in center field.
Sep 18 - 4:40 PM

Justin Morneau finished 3-for-4 with a home run and six RBI in Wednesday's 16-2 rout of the Dodgers.

Colorado absolutely pounded Dodgers spot starter Carlos Frias, with Morneau kicking off the fun on a three-run blast in the bottom of the first inning. He also hit a two-run single to finish off the scoring in that eight-run opening frame before doubling in the bottom of the fourth and collecting his sixth RBI of the afternoon on a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the fifth. The veteran first baseman has an excellent .320/.363/.497 batting line with 16 home runs and 79 RBI in 127 games this season.
Sep 17 - 6:32 PM

Jorge De La Rosa fired six scoreless innings Wednesday in the Rockies' defeat of the Dodgers.

De La Rosa was staked to an eight-run lead after the first inning and went into cruise control, yielding only two hits and two walks while fanning three. He's now 14-11 on the season with a 4.14 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 132/63 K/BB ratio in 178 1/3 innings. The lefty will finish up his 2014 with a road start against the Padres.
Sep 17 - 6:28 PM

Rockies recalled RHP Eddie Butler from Double-A Tulsa.

Butler will start for the Rockies on Saturday. The righty struggled in his major league debut back in June and hasn't posted overly impressive numbers in the minors this season (3.99 ERA, just 69 strikeouts over 117 1/3 innings). However, he remains a top pitching prospect and might be worth a flier in NL-only formats.
Sep 17 - 8:41 AM

Corey Dickerson went 2-for-4 with a triple, home run and four RBI in the Rockies' 10-4 rout of the Dodgers on Tuesday.

In the fourth inning, Dickerson connected for a two-run shot, his 23rd home run of the season, off Dodgers starter Dan Haren. He added a two-run triple in the eighth inning, his fifth triple of the season. The 25-year-old has emerged as an offensive star this season, batting .307/.360/.566 with 73 RBI and 70 runs scored overall.
Sep 17 - 12:20 AM

Drew Stubbs had a hit, two walks and three runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Dodgers.

Stubbs scored on a fourth inning home run by Corey Dickerson, also crossing the plate in the sixth and eighth innings. The 29-year-old has 63 runs scored this year to go with a .288/.338/.481 line.
