Nolan Arenado had a rough day at the plate in Wednesday's loss to the Dodgers, going 0-for-3 with three strikeouts.

Arenado was able to coax a walk in the first inning, but went down on strikes in each of his final three plate appearances. While he hasn't posted the power numbers that fantasy owners expected, he's still hitting a terrific .317/.407/.539 with eight homers, 26 RBI and two stolen bases on the season.

Kyle Freeland logged a quality start in Wednesday's loss to the Dodgers, allowing three runs on six hits over his 6 1/3 innings.

Freeland walked three and struck out three in the contest. While Freeland didn't pitch poorly in this one, he needed to be perfect as Kenta Maeda was electric on the other side. Freeland has been a revelation for the Rockies this season, registering a 3.28 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 52/21 K/BB ratio across his 60 1/3 innings. He'll look to get back in the win column when he does battle against the Giants on Tuesday.

Ian Desmond went 2-for-4 with a homer and two runs batted in on Tuesday in a loss to the Dodgers.

Desmond drove in his first run on a solo shot off of Brock Stewart in the second inning, and he also had an RBI single in the sixth to briefly give the Rockies a 3-2 lead. He now has eight homers and 23 RBI on the season in 47 games, and Desmond is slashing .180/.233/.377 in that time frame.

Chad Bettis gave up two runs over five innings with four strikeouts in a no decision against the Dodgers on Tuesday.

Bettis really struggled in the first inning, giving up an RBI single to Matt Kemp and then walking in a run when he gave Yasiel Puig a free pass. Over his final four innings he was excellent, and he kept the Rockies in the game. Bettis needs a quality defense behind him, but he does possess a 3.30 ERA on the season along with a 1.20 WHIP. We'll see him back on the mound on Monday against the Giants.

Wade Davis pitched a scoreless ninth against the Dodgers on Monday to earn his 17th save of the season.

Davis struck out one, and he allowed just an infield single to Matt Kemp; with Kemp being erased on a base running mistake as he turned towards second base and was tagged out. Davis is now 17-for-19 on saves this year, and his WHIP lowers to 1.03 to pair with his 2.66 ERA in 21 appearances.
May 22 - 12:52 AM

Carlos Gonzalez drove in the go-ahead run on a pinch-hit single against the Dodgers on Monday.

It wasn't exactly hard contact, but Gonzalez put the ball in play against Scott Alexander and Chase Utley wasn't able to make the play. It's the 16th RBI of the season for the outfielder, and it "ups" his line to .226/.270/.387 over 106 at-bats in 2018.
May 22 - 12:48 AM

Gerardo Parra hit a solo homer to help the Rockies beat the Dodgers on Monday.

Parra's homer was a solo shot off of Walker Buehler, and it was the first hit of the game for the Rockies in the top of the fifth inning that tied the game at 1-1. Parra now has three homers on the year, and he's slashing .277/.322/.394 on the season over 43 games.
May 22 - 12:48 AM

German Marquez gave up just one run over seven strong innings against the Dodgers in a 2-1 victory on Monday.

Marquez allowed just two hits, and he walked two and struck out five. Outside of a solo homer by Max Muncy, Marquez was exceptional, and there wasn't much hard contact against the right-hander throughout. He's been great on the road this season (2.06 ERA), but understandably Coors Field (10.34) has been a different story. Up next is a start against the Reds at home, so fantasy owners can sit that one out.

DJ LeMahieu (thumb, wrist) played catch Monday.

He did not catch the ball in his glove, though, in order to protect his sprained thumb and small wrist fracture. In other words, LeMahieu is just keeping his arm in shape and is at the very beginning of his rehab.
May 21 - 6:29 PM

Trevor Story finished 3-for-5 with a double, two RBI and a run scored in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

Story knocked an RBI double in the fourth inning and added a run-scoring single in the fifth, adding to his RBI total of 35 that's second-best in the National League. Story also has 10 homers, which rank among the league leaders as well, and he's hitting .250/.335/.512 in 47 games.
May 20 - 9:07 PM

Nolan Arenado filled up the stat sheet Sunday, going 3-for-5 with an RBI single, a stolen base and a run scored in a loss to the Giants.

Arenado collected three of the Rockies' 13 hits in the loss, and he's got five multi-hit games in his last eight contests. He's not putting up prolific offensive numbers but Arenado has been one of the best hitters, in terms of average, so far this year, batting .331 with a .418 on-base percentage and .567 slugging percentage. As the weather continues to warm up, his power numbers should tick upward as well.
May 20 - 8:53 PM

Tyler Anderson allowed five runs in 5 1/3 innings Sunday in a no-decision against the Giants.

Anderson allowed six hits and a walk in his 5 1/3 innings of work, the third straight start he's allowed four runs or more with fewer than six innings pitched. He entered that three-start stretch with a 3.78 ERA, and it sits at 4.74 after Sunday's game. The Reds are up next for Anderson when they visit Coors Field on Saturday.
May 20 - 8:34 PM

Charlie Blackmon went 2-for-5 and scored two runs in a loss to the Giants on Saturday.

He led off the game with an infield single and came around to score on a Nolan Arenado knock. He singled again in the fifth and was driven in by Trevor Story. Blackmon's batting average is depressed this year but everything else looks great. His batting averages the last two years were .324 and .331 but this year he owns a .269/.374/.538 line with 12 home runs, 23 RBI, 35 runs scored and four stolen bases in 41 games.
May 19 - 7:47 PM

Ian Desmond went 1-for-2 with a stolen base and two runs scored in Saturday's loss to the Giants.

Both runs he scored came on double-play groundouts by second baseman Daniel Castro. He also walked twice in the contest. Desmond has really struggled to get anything going at the plate this year despite playing half his games in the hitters' paradise of Coors Field. He has a gruesome .179/.232/.372 slash line but he does have seven homers and 21 RBI in 44 games.
May 19 - 7:42 PM

Jon Gray surrendered five runs in 3 2/3 innings and was charged with a loss to the Giants on Saturday.

He gave up a lot of contact in this one, allowing nine hits and a walk in the brief start. He can't blame the poor results on Coors Field as this was played at AT&T Park, one of the best pitchers' parks in baseball. Gray falls to 4-6 with a 5.34 ERA and 1.40 WHIP after 10 starts.
