Nolan Arenado mashed his NL-leading 41st homer of the season in Friday’s 4-1 victory over the Brewers.

Arenado connected for a two-run homer against Brent Suter in the bottom of the first inning to give the Rockies an early lead. The 25-year-old finished the night 2-for-4 with two runs scored and is batting .296/.363/.575 on the year. He leads the majors with 133 RBI. Just to put things in perspective here, nobody else in the NL has more than 108 RBI.

Chad Bettis gave up just one run over 6 2/3 innings in a 4-1 victory over the Brewers on Friday.

Bettis gave up eight hits and walked three (two of them intentional), so the Brewers had some chances here, but the only run scored on a solo homer off the bat of Chris Carter in the fourth inning. He fanned five in the victory and will finish the year at 14-8 with a 4.79 ERA and 138/59 K/BB ratio over 186 innings. His fantasy upside is limited in his situation, but he has proven to be a useful starter for Colorado.
Sep 30 - 11:14 PM

Adam Ottavino tossed a perfect ninth inning Friday against the Brewers for his seventh save of the season.

Ottavino struck out two out of the three batters he faced. The 30-year-old is just 7-for-12 in save chances this season, but he has converted five out of his last six chances. He owns an impressive 2.42 ERA and 32/7 K/BB ratio over 26 innings in his first year back from Tommy John surgery.
Sep 30 - 11:14 PM

Charlie Blackmon went 3-for-4 with an RBI single Friday versus the Brewers.

All three hits were singles. While it was a good night at the plate for him, he was also caught stealing and picked off first base. Blackmon has enjoyed a strong September and is batting .322/.378/.545 with 28 homers, 80 RBI, 17 steals, and 110 run scored. He actually has a higher OPS on the road this season than he has at home.
Sep 30 - 11:13 PM

Jeff Hoffman will start for the Rockies on Saturday against the Brewers.

He's taking the place of Tyler Anderson who was scratched due to general soreness. Hoffman has struggled in his limited time with the big league club, registering a 5.47 ERA, 1.90 WHIP and 15/15 K/BB ratio over 26 1/3 innings. He has zero appeal as a streaming option and should be stacked heavily against in Colorado on Saturday evening.

Tyler Anderson was scratched from his scheduled start on Saturday against the Brewers due to general soreness.

Jeff Hoffman will start in his place. Anderson has already logged 114 1/3 innings with the big league club this season and another 30 2/3 in the minor leagues, so the Rockies are playing things cautiously and won't push him at all. He wraps up the season with a 3.54 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 99/28 K/BB ratio for the Rockies. He should have a leg up on a rotation spot heading into 2017 and could have some streamer appeal in the later rounds of mixed league drafts.

David Dahl went 1-for-3 with an RBI triple in Thursday's loss to the Giants.

Dahl notched his RBI three-bagger against Johnny Cueto in the first inning. It gave the Rockies an early 2-0 lead, one which they would squander as the game progressed. Since being called up in the middle of the summer, Dahl, 22, has impressed to the tune of a .316/.362/.512 triple-slash across 209 at-bats. In addition, the outfielder has mashed seven homers and driven in 24 runs. He has picked up an extra-base hit in each of his last four games.
Sep 30 - 1:37 AM

Jon Gray struggled in Thursday's loss to the Giants, allowing five runs (four earned) on eight hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Gray also walked three in what was a less-than-stellar finish to his 2016 season. The Giants ripped him for a pair of runs in the fourth inning, then came back around for three more in the sixth. The 24-year-old right-hander's 4.61 ERA might not inspire much confidence, but Gray also rocked a 185/59 K/BB ratio across 168 innings. He closed the season with double-digit strikeout showings in two of his last three starts.
Sep 30 - 1:31 AM

D.J. LeMahieu is not in the Rockies starting lineup for Thursday's contest against the Giants.

It doesn't appear to be anything more than a routine day of rest for the hot-hitting second baseman. Daniel Descalso will start in his place and bat second against Johnny Cueto and the Giants on Thursday evening.
Sep 29 - 7:02 PM

Tyler Chatwood allowed three hits over eight scoreless innings and struck out nine Wednesday in beating the Giants.

Chatwood's season ends much like it started. The middle wasn't as pleasant, but he showed what he can do while healthy; he allowed one or no runs in 10 of his 27 starts. What he does need to demonstrate is that he can stay healthy; his 27 starts and 158 innings this season were new career highs.
Sep 29 - 2:12 AM

DJ LeMahieu went 1-for-4 with three strikeouts in Tuesday's loss to the Giants.

LeMahieu simply couldn't square up Matt Moore, though the same could be said for just about everybody on the Rockies. For the season, the 28-year-old second baseman is slashing .349/.418/.496 with 11 homers, 66 RBI and 11 steals over 550 at-bats. This has been a career-year for LeMahieu in a number of statistical categories, including home runs, RBI and batting average.
Sep 28 - 1:31 AM

German Marquez was hit hard in Tuesday's loss to the Giants, surrendering six runs on 12 hits over 4 1/3 innings.

Oh dear. The Giants scored solitary runs off Marquez in the first and third innings before finally busting through for a big frame in the fifth. Among the damage in the frame, back-to-back solo home runs by Buster Posey and Hunter Pence. Prior to Tuesday's meltdown, the 21-year-old right-hander had pitched well enough in his first taste of major league ball, allowing four runs on 10 hits over 10 1/3 innings. He remains a work-in-progress. As currently scheduled, Marquez will have one little sip of October air when he starts against the Brewers in Sunday's regular-season finale.
Sep 28 - 1:22 AM

David Dahl clobbered a solo homer on Sunday as the Rockies fell to the Dodgers in Los Angeles.

Dahl's solo blast off of Dodgers' closer Kenley Jansen gave the Rockies a 3-2 lead in the ninth inning, but it would prove to be short-lived. The homer was Dahl's lone hit in four at-bats on the afternoon. He has acclimated himself well to big league pitching thus far, slashing .315/.357/.500 with seven homers and 23 RBI.
Sep 25 - 8:17 PM

Tyler Anderson logged a quality start in a no-decision against the Dodgers on Sunday, surrendering two runs on 10 hits over 6 1/3 innings.

The left-hander walked two and struck out only one batter on the afternoon. The Dodgers scratched out a run against him in the third inning and then tied the score with Corey Seager's RBI triple in the seventh. Anderson has done a really nice job in the Rockies rotation this season, compiling a 3.54 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and a 99/28 K/BB ratio over 114 1/3 innings. He'll wrap up his season on Saturday against the Brewers.
Sep 25 - 8:12 PM

Chad Bettis was demolished for seven runs -- five earned -- over 4 2/3 innings in a loss to the Dodgers on Saturday.

He can't blame this one on Coors Field either. He struggled to throw strikes, walking four on 105 pitches in the short and ugly outing. He gave up eight hits and struck out three. Bettis gave up four runs in the second inning, two more in the fourth and was chased after giving up an RBI single to opposing pitcher Clayton Kershaw in the fifth. His record falls to 13-8 with a 4.92 ERA in 179 1/3 innings.
