Rockies recalled RHP Yency Almonte from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Almonte was just sent down but makes a quick return with Bryan Shaw (calf) going down. He's allowed two unearned runs over two relief appearances during his time with the big club.
Jun 24 - 2:21 PM

Rockies placed RHP Bryan Shaw on the 10-day disabled list with a right calf strain.

Shaw has been a disaster this season with a 7.57 ERA over 41 appearances and now finds himself on the disabled list. It's unclear how much time he might miss.

Carlos Gonzalez is not in the Rockies' lineup Sunday.

Noel Cuevas will handle right field with the Marlins throwing lefty Caleb Smith. The Rockies also have Tom Murphy catching again.
Jun 24 - 12:31 PM

Rockies recalled INF Pat Valaika from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Valaika has batted an ugly .120/.185/.173 in the majors this season. He'll back up all over the infield.

Rockies optioned RHP Yency Almonte to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Almonte allowed two unearned runs over two relief appearances during his brief time with the big club. He'll return to Albuquerque's rotation.

Gerardo Parra went 1-for-2 with a home run and two RBI in a loss to the Marlins on Saturday.

He drove in a run with a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning, then topped that with a solo dinger in the seventh as he accounted for the only two runs his team would score in the contest. Parra's .305/.343/.417 overall slash line is good but he is particularly valuable in daily leagues where he can be benched against left-handed pitching. He has a studly .853 OPS against right-handers and an impotent .456 OPS against southpaws.

Tyler Anderson surrendered four runs in six-plus innings and was charged with a loss to the Marlins on Saturday.

He served up a solo shot to Derek Dietrich in the first inning but that was all the damage he incurred through six frames. He was sent back out for the seventh though and allowed three consecutive singles and another run without getting an out before being relieved. Both of the runners he bequeathed to reliever Brian Shaw ended up scoring on a J.T. Realmuto grand slam, quickly turning a good start into a bad one for Anderson and his fantasy owners. He falls to 4-3 with a 4.62 ERA after 16 starts.

Tom Murphy went 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles, a run scored and two RBI on Friday against Miami.

The backstop for the Rockies has managed 11 hits across 36 at-bats (.344) with four doubles and six RBI in eight games since his recall from Triple-A Albuquerque on June 12. His offensive production is turning heads and making fantasy owners take notice.
Jun 23 - 3:01 AM

Nolan Arenado went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run and a walk in Friday's 11-3 rout of the Marlins.

Arenado is on a power tear against the dregs of the National League East, belting a homer in each of his past four outings while piling up 11 RBI during the impressive stretch. He is averaging two RBI across his past eight contests, too. He'll look for a homer in a fifth straight outing against RHP Trevor Richards on Saturday afternoon. He is hitting .341 (28-for-82) with four doubles, five homers and 18 RBI in day games this season.
Jun 23 - 2:57 AM

Jon Gray allowed one earned run while scattering eight hits with no walks and a season-high 12 strikeouts over seven innings in a win Friday against Miami.

Gray leveled his record at 7-7, throwing 69 of his 99 pitches for strikes. He has logged at least nine strikeouts across each of his past three outings. Gray entered Friday's outing with batters hitting .301 against him, and he allowed eight hits in this one. He has a 5.52 ERA and 1.45 WHIP through 16 starts, so he needs a lot of run support to tick off wins for his fantasy owners.

Scott Oberg (back) is set to begin a minor league rehab assignment Saturday with Triple-A Albuquerque.

Oberg, who's been out since June 8, should be ready to return to the Rockies' bullpen after one or two appearances on the farm. The 28-year-old right-hander has a 4.08 ERA in 17 2/3 innings this season at the major league level. That's pretty good compared to some of the other bloated ERAs in the Colorado 'pen.
Jun 22 - 5:31 PM

Mike Dunn (back) will begin a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Albuquerque on Saturday.

The left-hander has made significant progress since landing on the DL with a rhomboid strain earlier this month and figures to return to the Rockies' bullpen sometime next week. They could sure use him—Colorado's pen ranks dead-last in ERA (5.65).
Jun 21 - 7:07 PM

Nolan Arenado had a three-run homer and a two-run double to lead the Rockies to a 6-4 win over the Mets on Thursday.

Arenado drove in five runs for the second time this year and eighth time in his career. He's still off his usual pace with 51 RBI in 69 games, but that's largely because he hasn't had as many guys on base in front of him as usual.
Jun 21 - 6:19 PM

Kyle Freeland pitched six innings of two-run ball for the win Thursday versus the Mets.

Freeland improved to 4-2 with a 2.95 ERA in six starts at Coors Field this year. He's also a solid 3-4 with a 3.95 ERA on the road. His overall ERA of 3.55 is a full run lower than that of anyone else in the Colorado rotation (Tyler Anderson is at 4.52).
Jun 21 - 6:17 PM

Jake McGee was credited with his first save after allowing one run in the ninth Thursday against the Rockies.

The Rockies wanted to avoid both Wade Davis and Adam Ottavino today, so McGee got the ball in the ninth with a three-run lead and ended the game after making things kind of interesting. He has a 5.34 ERA in 32 appearances this year.
