German Marquez outdueled Justin Verlander on Tuesday, allowing one run over seven innings to beat the Astros.

He fanned seven. Marquez has seven quality starts in his last eight tries (and the Rockies won the one remaining game). He's a big reason they're still in playoff contention, but then it's the team's rotation that's done most of the heavy lifting the last two years.

Nolan Arenado hit his 30th homer as the Rockies' designated hitter in Tuesday's win.

Arenado has reached 30 homers in four straight seasons, and he still has a chance at his third 40-homer campaign. Getting to 130 RBI for the fourth straight years is going to be a whole lot more difficult; he needs 47 RBI in the Rockies' remaining 43 games.

Trevor Story went 2-for-5 and launched his 25th homer against the Astros on Tuesday.

Story has 25 homers and 82 RBI in 118 games this year and finishing with 24 HR and 82 RBI in 145 games last season. He's also hitting 50 points higher now than then (.290 to .239). He's been one of the year's biggest bargains from a fantasy perspective.

Antonio Senzatela (shoulder) threw live batting practice on Tuesday afternoon.

He told reporters after the workout that he felt in "tip-top" shape. Senzatela, who's been out since August 3 with inflammation in his right shoulder, could return to the Rockies' pitching staff sometime next week. He's sporting a 4.56 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and 37/17 K/BB ratio in 47 1/3 innings (five starts, 10 relief appearances) this season with Colorado.

Nolan Arenado (shoulder) is back in the Rockies' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Astros.

Arenado missed a couple of games due to mild soreness in his right shoulder. He is at DH and batting cleanup for the Rockies on Tuesday in Houston.
Aug 14 - 4:58 PM

Rockies recalled INF Garrett Hampson from Triple-A Albuquerque.

He'll provide some infield depth while Scott Oberg is on the paternity list. Hampson batted .300/.417/.450 across 24 plate appearances during his first stint in the majors earlier this season.
Aug 14 - 3:48 PM

Rockies placed RHP Scott Oberg on the paternity list.

Oberg can be away from the club for up to 72 hours. The Rockies have called up infielder Garrett Hampson to take his spot on the active roster.
Aug 14 - 3:46 PM

Nolan Arenado (shoulder) grounded out as a pinch-hitter on Sunday against the Dodgers.

Arenado left Friday's game due to lingering soreness in his throwing shoulder, but his absence has mostly been precautionary. He's expected to return to the starting lineup on Tuesday, either at third base or as the DH.
Aug 13 - 8:42 AM

Nolan Arenado (shoulder) expects to be in the Rockies' starting lineup on Tuesday, either at third base or as the designated hitter.

Arenado was removed from Friday's game with a sore shoulder and sat out the remainder of the weekend as a precautionary measure, though he nearly talked his way into the lineup on Sunday. He should have no problem being ready to return after Monday's off-day.
Aug 12 - 6:35 PM

Charlie Blackmon hit his 22nd home run of the season Sunday in the Rockies' win over the Dodgers.

It was a sixth-inning solo shot off Dodgers starter Rich Hill. Blackmon also reached on an error in the bottom of the first inning and went on to score the first run of the game on a Trevor Story sacrifice fly. The 32-year-old outfielder is slashing .276/.346/.477 in 112 total games this season.
Aug 12 - 6:12 PM

Chad Bettis tossed 6 1/3 innings of one-run ball in the Rockies' 4-3 win over the Dodgers on Sunday.

Bettis had to settle for a no-decision because the Rockies didn't take the lead for good until Chris Iannetta's bases-loaded walk in the bottom of the ninth inning. Bettis pitched well, though, issuing four walks but yielding only three hits and striking out three while pitching into the top of the seventh. He struggled mightily in his first start off the disabled list Tuesday versus the Pirates, so this qualifies as an immense bounceback.
Aug 12 - 6:05 PM

Kyle Freeland allowed just two runs over seven innings Saturday in a no-decision versus the Dodgers.

Colorado wound up winning the game 3-2 thanks to a three-run walk-off homer by Ryan McMahon in the bottom of the ninth. Freeland did his part, scattering six hits and two walks while racking up a career-high 10 strikeouts. It was his 15th quality start of the season. The 25-year-old left-hander will carry an outstanding 3.02 ERA into his next start on the road against the Braves.
Aug 11 - 11:17 PM

Ryan McMahon hit a walk-off three-run homer in bottom of the ninth inning Saturday as the Rockies beat the Dodgers 3-2.

Colorado didn't put a run on the board until McMahon's shot over the right-center field wall off Dodgers reliever J.T. Chargois, which sent the sellout crowd at Coors Field into an uproar. McMahon also homered Friday in the Rockies' 5-4 defeat of Los Angeles. He's been starting at third base with Nolan Arenado nursing a minor shoulder injury.
Aug 11 - 11:10 PM

Nolan Arenado (shoulder) is not in the Rockies' lineup for Saturday's game against the Dodgers.

Arenado left Friday's game after tweaking something in his right shoulder, so the move isn't totally unexpected. He was set for re-evaluation Saturday, so the Rockies should have some clarity on his outlook after those evaluations are through. Ryan McMahon started at third base in Arenado's stead Saturday.
Aug 11 - 4:21 PM

Nolan Arenado (shoulder) will be re-evaluated on Saturday.

Arenado admitted after leaving Friday's game that his right shoulder has been bothering him for a couple of weeks now. It became painful after turning a double play in the fourth inning, and rather than risking further aggravation the Rockies decided to play it safe and lift him from the game. At the moment, it doesn't sound like he's looking at an extended absence, but we'll know more on Saturday.
