DENVER – Charlie Blackmon waited until his 82nd at bat of the season to hit his first home run of the season and his timing couldn’t have been any better. Down 3-2 in the 12th inning with two outs and two strikes, the man known as Chuck Nasty added his second walk-off home run to his already impressive resumé on…...

DENVER – On a night when Kyle Freeland recaptured his brilliance at home and the Rockies took down the team with the best record in the National League, it was the return of Ryan McMahon that fans talked about as they exited the park. Freeland was wheelin’ and dealin’ when he took the mound Thursday night, setting the tone for…...

From behind the center field bullpen wall at Petco Park on Monday night, Carlos Estévez watched Antonio Senzatela enter the seventh inning having given up just five hits and one walk on just 75 pitches in his debut start of 2019. With two outs already recorded and a runner on first base in a 5-1 game, Padres manager Andy Green…...

With a losing streak that reached eight games Saturday – and twelve-of-thirteen – the relative highlights for the Colorado are few and far between at this point. Unable to score in the first inning once again, playing a majority of the game from behind, an adequate performance from starting pitcher Kyle Freeland was far from enough as the offense continued…

DENVER: Everything Josh Fuentes had been working toward nearly disappeared when he broke the hamate bone in his left hand early in Spring Training before exhibition games had even begun. “The doctor said six-to-eight and then you start doing all this stuff. For me, I was like, ‘There’s no way that’s happening. I need to be good a soon as…...

DENVER – When it rains, it pours. And right now, it’s raining trips to the trainer’s room for the Colorado Rockies since the beginning of April’s showers. It began with pitchers Antonio Senzatela (blister infection and right heel) and Chris Rusin (mid-back strain) opening the season on the Injured List (IL). Beginning on April 1, the Rockies suffered the biggest…

On Saturday, when the press piled into the media room beneath Coors Field, they shared the space with several of German Márquez’ teammates and coaches, including Nolan Arenado, Trevor Story, and Tony Wolters. GM Jeff Bridich started the press conference with praise for his young hurler and acknowledged the impetus for a long-term marriage between the two parties. “It’s something…...

DENVER – Reinvesting over $300 million in players this offseason was only part of the master plan for Colorado Rockies owner/chairman and CEO Dick Monfort. On Thursday, Monfort announced the name of the West Lot project, set to open January 1, 2021, would be named McGregor Square to honor Rockies’ late president, Keli S. McGregor, during the official…...

DENVER – A sold-out crowd of 48,404 welcomed their heroes back to Colorado for the home opener Friday afternoon at Coors Field. Unfortunately, Rockies fanatics left disappointed due in large part to starting pitcher Tyler Anderson surrendering six earned runs in his four-plus innings of work and the offense going 1-for-8 with runners in scoring position. Electric from the start,…

With apologies to Rookie level teams Boise and Grand Junction who begin their season after the MLB Draft in June, Thursday marks the first game of the season for four of the Rockies’ minor league affiliates on what Minor League Baseball calls Opening Night. Albuquerque Isotopes (AAA) The most interesting team in the organization is easily the Triple-A club as…...

Tony Wolters has yet to celebrate his 27th birthday. Drafted 87th overall as a high school shortstop, it wasn’t until his fourth season as a professional that Wolters picked up the tools of ignorance. And yet somehow, he’s already played in over 200 games, logged more than 700 plate appearances, and achieved one of the biggest hits in the Rockies…...

During Sunday’s loss to the Marlins, the Rockies announced that RP Rayan González had not only been sent to Double-A Hartford, but optioned off the 40-man roster creating yet another available spot. In the the previous weekend during a matter of 24 hours, outfielder Mike Tauchman was traded to the Yankees and catcher Tom Murphy was waived; this created two…...

Just when it seemed the presence of Mr. Barrels would be missing on the 2019 Colorado Rockies, an unforseen injury has brought him back with his brothers. After a delayed start to 2018 that limited Daniel Murphy to 91 games because of knee surgery, the first baseman will now deal with his first stint on the Injured List with Colorado…...

Before the Rockies got a chance to really display their new $24MM purchase, an unfortunate injury will force them put him back in the display case for another day joining reliever Chris Rusin and starting pitcher Antonio Senzatela. Signed in large part because of his postseason resume and swing that plays perfectly for the confines of Coors Field, Daniel Murphy…

With a 2-0 start to the 2019 season and their first consecutive victory at Marlins Park in the same calendar year, the Colorado Rockies have a lot of positives to reflect upon. Starting Pitching Opening Day ace Kyle Freeland was perfect going into the fourth inning, retiring eleven straight batters – four on strikeouts – to start the game. He…...

Thursday’s first pitch in Miami welcomes the 2019 season for the Colorado Rockies and their pursuit of the first National League West pennant in team history. With last year’s successful starting rotation back to help challenge the franchise record of 92 wins, not to mention the addition of a methodical hitter in Daniel Murphy and the rise of young players…...

On Saturday, the Rockies traded outfielder Mike Tauchman to the Yankees for pitcher Phillip Diehl. After spending the last two years as part of the 40-man roster and even making the Opening Day roster in 2018, Tauchman, 28, seemed blocked for playing time behind the likes of Charlie Blackmon, David Dahl and Raimel Tapia. Also, it’s becoming more clear that…...

ALBUQUERQUE, Nm. -The last time the Colorado Rockies sent out a starting pitcher that didn’t have a pedigree linked to the Albuquerque Isotopes was September 25, 2017. Tyler Chatwood made the start that day and since then Colorado has played 168 consecutive games with an Isotopes alum on the hill. On Opening Day 2019, Kyle Freeland will make the streak…...
