Player News - Rockies

Date: Team: Pos:

Seunghwan Oh told the Yonhap News Agency that he is considering returning to the Korea Baseball Organization for the 2019 season.

Oh triggered a $2.5 million vesting option with the Rockies in late September when he made his 70th appearance of the regular season, but the 36-year-old right-hander sounds ready to head back to his native South Korea. "I am a bit exhausted after spending five seasons in Japan and the United States," said Oh. "I feel like I want to return to the KBO while I still have the energy to help the team and pitch in front of home fans. I can’t make this decision alone. I’ll have to speak with my agency about the next season." Colorado would surely be said to see him go, as he registered a sharp 2.63 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, and 79/17 K/BB ratio across 68 1/3 total innings in 2018.

Jon Gray admitted that his health played a major role in his struggles during the 2018 regular season.

"I wasn’t really healthy," Gray told the Denver Post, "My (velocity) was down this year. I was down about 20 pounds this year. I need to get back to 230-235." The right-hander posted a cringe-inducing 5.12 ERA on the season and didn't crack the club's playoff roster due to his struggles during the regular season. He plans to hit the gym and pack on muscle over the winter in an effort to return to the strong form he exhibited during the 2017 campaign.

Nolan Arenado said after Sunday's loss to the Brewers that he's not yet thinking about the offseason or his contract situation.

Arenado is entering his final season of arbitration. Both sides are seemingly interested in working out a long-term deal before the star third baseman hits free agency after the 2019 campaign. While nothing is in the works yet, expect the two sides to have plenty of discussions on the topic over the winter.
Oct 7 - 9:16 PM

Trevor Story went 2-for-4 with a double as the Rockies were shut out by the Brewers, completing their three-game sweep in the NLDS.

As a team, the vaunted Rockies' offense scored a total of two runs in the three-game set. On Sunday, they mustered just four hits against Wade Miley and a host of Brewers' relievers, with Story the only player to collect more than one. Story, who clubbed 37 home runs and stole 27 bases during the regular season, finished the postseason 5-for-18 (.278) with no homers, no RBI and no stolen bases.
Oct 7 - 7:53 PM

German Marquez wasn't able to extend the Rockies' season on Sunday, allowing two runs on seven hits over five innings in a loss to the Brewers in Game 3 of the NLDS.

Marquez punched out five on the afternoon while walking one. While he wasn't awful in this one, the Rockies' offense wasn't able to produce any runs for him against Wade Miley and company. Though his season finished on a disappointing note, it was still a tremendous season overall for the 23-year-old hurler who won 14 games and racked up 230 strikeouts over 196 innings in the regular season. He's not going to sneak by anyone in fantasy drafts next spring.
Oct 7 - 7:53 PM

Matt Holliday is starting in left field and batting fifth for the Rockies in Sunday's NLDS Game 3 against the Brewers.

The Rockies are going with Holliday in left with the Brewers starting southpaw Wade Miley, which means David Dahl is on the bench for the second straight game. Wild Card Game hero Tony Wolters is catching after Chris Iannetta caught the first two games. The full lineup looks like this: Charlie Blackmon CF, DJ LeMahieu 2B, Nolan Arenado 3B, Trevor Story SS, Holliday LF, Carlos Gonzalez RF, Ian Desmond 1B, Wolters C, German Marquez P.
Oct 7 - 12:41 PM

Nolan Arenado went 2-for-4 as the Rockies were shut out by the Brewers in Game 2 of the NLDS on Friday afternoon in Milwaukee.

As a team, the Rockies mustered just six hits in the contest, all of them singles, with Arenado and Gerardo Parra netting two each. He struck out in each of his other two at-bats, once with two men on in the third inning, and again with a man on in the fifth. The Rockies will now head back to Colorado where they'll attempt to stave off elimination in Game 3.
Oct 5 - 8:09 PM

Tyler Anderson pitched well in a tough-luck loss against the Brewers in Game 2 of the NLDS on Friday, allowing just one run on four hits over his six innings of work.

The 28-year-old southpaw punched out five on the afternoon while walking a pair. The only blemish on his day came on an RBI double by Hernan Perez in the fourth inning, which unfortunately for Anderson, was enough for the Brewers to eke this one out. Now tasked with a 2-0 deficit, Anderson isn't likely to get the ball again this season unless the Rockies can mount a miraculous comeback in the series.
Oct 5 - 8:08 PM

German Marquez will start for the Rockies on Sunday in Game 3 of the NLDS versus the Brewers.

It was the obvious slot that Marquez would be slotted into after he started Monday's tiebreaker game against the Dodgers. He will be opposed by Wade Miley. Kyle Freeland is in line to start Game 4, if needed.
Oct 5 - 2:16 PM

Gerardo Parra is starting in left field and batting sixth for the Rockies in Friday's NLDS Game 2 versus the Brewers.

David Dahl started the tiebreaker game, the Wild Card Game and Game 1, but Parra is getting a shot over him after he had a pinch-hit single and scored a run in the ninth inning of Thursday's loss. The Rockies' full lineup looks like this: Charlie Blackmon CF, DJ LeMahieu 2B, Nolan Arenado 3B, Carlos Gonzalez RF, Trevor Story SS, Parra LF, Ian Desmond 1B, Chris Iannetta C, Tyler Anderson P.
Oct 5 - 1:12 PM

Nolan Arenado went 0-for-3 with an RBI in an extra-innings loss to the Brewers in Game 1 of the NLDS on Thursday.

Arenado came up with the bases loaded and nobody out and the Rockies trailing 2-1 in the top of the ninth, and he flew out to center to score the game-tying run. Unfortunately for the Rockies, the offense wasn't able to get anything else going and they picked up a loss in extra innings. Arenado really struggled outside of the RBI -- and it was on a pitch he normally would crush -- and the Rockies will need him to be better going forward if they're going to win this series.
Oct 4 - 9:30 PM

Antonio Senzatela allowed two runs over five innings with one strikeout in the Rockies’ loss to the Brewers in Game 1 of the NLDS on Thursday.

Senzatela really made only one mistake, but it was a big one; a two-run homer by Christian Yelich that put the Brewers out in front 2-0 and was all the offense the Milwaukee pitching staff needed. Outside of the homer, Senzatela was mostly effective, although he certainly wasn’t missing many bats on Thursday. He could be available out of the bullpen later in the series, or he’s a possibility to start Game 4 or Game 5.
Oct 4 - 9:15 PM

David Dahl will bat cleanup for the Rockies in Game 1 of the NLDS on Thursday versus the Brewers.

Dahl had a rough showing in Tuesday's NL Wild Card Game against the Cubs, going 0-for-6 with a strikeout and making a bad blunder on a catchable ball in right field, but the 24-year-old was a force offensively over the final stretch of the regular season. The full Game 1 lineup for the visiting Rockies: Charlie Blackmon CF, DJ LeMahieu 2B, Nolan Arenado 3B, David Dahl LF, Trevor Story SS, Carlos Gonzalez RF, Ian Desmond 1B, Chris Iannetta C, Antonio Senzatela SP.
Oct 4 - 1:21 PM

Jon Gray is not on the Rockies' 25-man roster for their NLDS matchup against the Brewers.

Gray was a pretty big disappointment during the 2018 regular season, posting a rough 5.12 ERA in 31 starts covering 172 1/3 innings. Colorado will go with an extra reliever instead: right-hander D.J. Johnson.
Oct 4 - 1:11 PM

Antonio Senzatela will indeed start Game 1 of the NLDS for the Rockies on Thursday against the Brewers.

As anticipated. Senzatela began the 2018 season as a long reliever in the Rockies' bullpen and mostly struggled in that role, but he went on to post a 3.95 ERA in 73 innings as a starter and he was especially effective in September. The 23-year-old right-hander will likely be followed by Tyler Anderson in Game 2, German Marquez in Game 3, and Kyle Freeland in a potential Game 4.
