Sep 3 - 4:16 AM

Rockies recalled 1B/OF Kyle Parker from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Parker had just one hit in nine at-bats during a short stay with the big club earlier this season. While a nice prospect, he doesn't figure to see enough playing time down the stretch in order to be fantasy-worthy.
Sep 2 - 7:41 PM

Rockies recalled RHP Rob Scahill from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

The 27-year-old right-hander has a rough 5.68 ERA in four appearances this season out of the Rockies' bullpen. He'll be used in middle relief.
Sep 2 - 7:38 PM

The Rockies have shut down pitching prospect Jon Gray due to right shoulder fatigue.

It's possible he'll be cleared to pitch if Double-A Tulsa makes it to the second round of the Texas League playoffs, but it's highly unlikely. The good news is that it doesn't appear to be a major concern, as Gray is still throwing in the bullpen. "It was just a precaution," Rockies trainer Keith Dugger said. "His shoulder is fine. This often happens when a young pitcher goes through his first pro season." The No. 3 overall pick in the 2013 Draft, Gray held a 3.91 ERA and 113/41 K/BB ratio over 124 1/3 Double-A innings in his first full pro season.

Corey Dickerson exited Monday's game versus the Giants due to dizziness.

Dickerson was dizzy and looked pale after scoring in the seventh inning. However, he was feeling fine after the game, so it doesn't sound like he'll need to miss any games.
Sep 1 - 10:52 PM

Charlie Blackmon delivered a walk-off single on Monday against the Giants.

Blackmon had been 0-for-5 coming into his at-bat in the bottom of the ninth inning. He singled off of Sergio Romo to score Michael McKenry and send the fans (if there are any left) home happy with a 10-9 win. Blackmon struggled in August (.245/.291/.363), but his season numbers are strong (.289/.335/.441) and hopefully this hit can get him fired up for the last month of the year before the Rockies end their lost season.
Sep 1 - 10:10 PM

Corey Dickerson went 1-for-3 and scored three runs on Monday.

Dickerson wasn't able to do much with the bat in this contest, but when he did get on base his teammates were able to knock him in. Dickerson's numbers are down some in the second half (.279/.316/.537 vs .325/.391/.579), but the dips aren't horribly noticeable. He's hit twenty home runs and driven in 63.
Sep 1 - 10:01 PM

Michael McKenry went 3-for-4 in the Rockies' 10-9 win over the Giants on Monday.

McKenry didn't do anything too flashy, singling three times. McHenry's only had 131 ABs for the Rockies, but he's been able to make the most of his opportunities. He's slashing .313/.388/.481. Despite the seemingly lofty heights of the slash-line, he doesn't get enough starting at-bats to really merit fantasy consideration unless you're desperate.
Sep 1 - 9:51 PM

Franklin Morales gave up seven runs in four and a third innings on Monday.

Another no good, very bad start for Morales. He allowed nine hits, struck out three and walked four in his time on the mound. The only reason he didn't pick up the loss is that the Rockies' offense was equal to the task of neutralizing Morales' numbers, as the team came back from a 7-2 deficit to actually take a 9-7 lead before the Giants tied it in the ninth (the Rockies would win it in the bottom of the frame). There's not much to analyze here. This marks the second start in Morales' last three in which he's given up at least six runs. On the season, he has a 5.46 ERA, a 1.64 WHIP and a BAA of .299. He'll take on the Padres in his next outing.
Sep 1 - 9:38 PM

Chad Bettis was scratched from his scheduled start with Triple-A Colorado Springs on Monday due to a sore right shoulder.

"He's got a tender shoulder," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "It's not out of the question that he could still show up here, but he's not making the start because he's got a sore shoulder." The righty has surrendered 11 runs on 18 hits and six walks across 8 2/3 frames over his last two starts, so it's possible he was dealing with soreness before Monday. The Rockies recently moved Bettis back to a starting role after using him in relief all season.
Sep 1 - 6:23 PM

Rockies transferred LHP Boone Logan from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Logan is done for 2014 with a lingering left elbow injury. He posted a rough 6.84 ERA and 1.68 WHIP in 35 appearances this season for the Rockies. It was the first year of a rough-looking three-year, $16.5 million deal.
Sep 1 - 2:36 PM

Rockies purchased the contract of INF Rafael Ynoa from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Ynoa batted .297/.356/.419 with five home runs and seven stolen bases in 115 games played this season at Triple-A. He can play all around the infield defensively.
Sep 1 - 2:35 PM

Rockies recalled LHP Yohan Flande from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Flande owns a 5.52 ERA in 45 2/3 innings (eight starts and one relief appearances) this season at the major league level, and he has actually been worse at Triple-A. It's not clear what his role will be.
Sep 1 - 2:32 PM

Rockies recalled 1B Ben Paulsen from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Paulsen hit .294/.378/.533 with 20 home runs and 76 RBI in 117 games this season at the Triple-A level. He'll be a bench bat for the Rockies over the final month.
Sep 1 - 2:30 PM

Charlie Blackmon hit his second home run in as many days Sunday, going 2-for-4 in a loss to the Diamondbacks.

Blackmon hit a solo home run in the fourth inning, the only damage the Rockies could do against Diamondbacks starter Chase Anderson. He's now got 17 homers in the year, with 64 RBI and 69 runs scored. The All-Star is hitting .289/.335/.441 overall.
