Maybe you can go home again. Colorado Rockies reliever Seunghwan Oh told South Korean media he’s considering a return to his home country’s professional baseball league in 2019. Oh, who was acquired at the 2018 trade deadline, was a much-needed addition to a then-struggling relief corps. He is under contract with the Rockies for the 2019 season after his vesting option…...

In 2017, the youthful and exuberant Houston Astros took MLB by storm, slamming their way through the Postseason and downing the Los Angeles Dodgers in an exciting and energizing World Series. Alex Bregman, Carlos Correa and Jose Altuve electrified a lineup, baseball team and city and created baseball’s newest dynasty. In 2018, a Colorado Rockies team whose core was centered…...

The adage is that hitting is contagious. But is relief pitching as well? The Colorado Rockies’ early bullpen struggles are as well documented as they were stunning. Before June 27, the relief corps. allowed the fifth highest batting average in MLB — and the highest in the National League — the third highest OBP and the second highest wOBA, with their…...

When German Marquez takes the mound takes the mound on Wednesday night, he will be five strikeouts short of becoming the Colorado Rockies’ single-season crown. If he punches out a handful of Philadelphia Phillies at Coors Field, he’ll pass Ubaldo Jimenez’s mark of 214 that he reached in his legendary 2010 campaign, as teammate Kyle Freeland tries to best Ubaldo’s…...

GRAND JUNCTION – The state of Colorado doesn’t have the deepest roots in baseball lore. While New York and California have churned out talent for decades, the Centennial State is still much more prominently known for its 300 days of sunshine and affinity for football, the outdoors, and craft beer. But there have been some standouts from the union’s 38th…...

Is Minute Maid Park a baseball stadium, or a rocket launching pad? At the end of the day, it’s just another “one” in the loss column, no matter how ugly it got. The Colorado Rockies, while not getting the sweep against the defending World Series champion Houston Astros on their own turf that they were hoping for, left H-Town with…...

It takes a village to raise a child, especially if its primary caretakers lack the confidence or even just general ability to do their part. For the Colorado Rockies, it’s going to take their whole bullpen to preserve leads and keep games close to deliver a playoff berth in Denver. The money given to Wade Davis, Bryan Shaw and Jake…...

In a previous Rockies Film Room, we discussed the plate adjustments Trevor Story made to earn his first All Star Game berth in July. In that piece, we mentioned briefly about the steps he’s taken with his defense as well. But in recent weeks, his long and often pivotal home runs have been crowded with highlight-reel glovework, coming with a…...

The Colorado Rockies made only one trade in the days approaching the July non-waiver trade deadline, landing some much-needed relief support in Seunghwan Oh from Toronto on July 26. Since his acquisition, the necessity of his presence has become even more apparent. The Rockies have already lost in three games on walk-offs in August. Closer incumbent Wade Davis is on…...

The Colorado Rockies, only two games back from the National League West division lead, are getting into crunch time as they enter the last third of their schedule. After dropping three of four to the St. Louis Cardinals, the Rockies set off to Milwaukee to begin a stretch of five consecutive series against playoff contenders—albeit the Pittsburgh Pirates are borderline.…...

Famed American poet Ice Cube once said, “I think I’m unique to the game ’cause of my versatility.” Versatility was added to the Rockies’ roster on Saturday with the promotion of Garrett Hampson following an injury to DJ LeMahieu. Hampson, a middle infielder, could slot in as the starting second baseman while LeMahieu recovers from an oblique injury. But, the…...

It’s a simple, if not overplayed, Hollywood trope. It may be a couple years overdue, but Trevor Story is an All-Star. A story of promise, then adversity and, finally, vindication. For Story, his plotline went from rookie sensation and snubbing to sophomore bust and now he is on his way to Washington, D.C. as one of three Rockies representing the…...

Hunting for the sweep against the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Colorado Rockies were not able to resort to the methods that got them their first two wins of the series on Sunday afternoon. The bullpen, which worked only one inning in both of the previous two games, assumed control of the game in the fourth. They paced with the Dodgers…...

DENVER – When the Colorado Rockies selected Jon Gray third overall in 2013, many believed the team had their first bonafide ace in the making. When he debuted just two years later, and struck out 16 Padres in a game in Coors Field a year after that, the thoughts were affirmed. But no good story lacks adversity. While the stuff…...

Prospects selected on draft day in baseball will not see a major-league stadium for several years, if they do at all, with seldom exceptions. Even Ryan Rolison, the Colorado Rockies’ first-round selection of 2018 whom many touted as highly polished, mature and capable of advancing through the…...

Almonte, typically a starter, figures to work out of the bullpen with the starting rotation set and the struggles the relievers have experienced over the past three weeks. In his…...

The Colorado Rockies starting pitching has kept them afloat and, for a period, on top of the National League West in the early going of 2018. Even with the recent struggles, the quintet of Kyle Freeland, Chad Bettis, Tyler Anderson, German Marquez and Jon Gray have been the life vest keeping Colorado atop the standings. They have been lauded as…...

In this iteration, we run down 2016, and as we noted in yesterday’s edition, we’ve passed the threshold of classes with players ascending to MLB at this point. While that doesn’t give…...

DENVER – Before it even began, the focus on the first game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Colorado Rockies was elevated above the typical June 1 matchup on both sides. Sure, the Dodgers are surging and trying to catch back up both to the expectations put on them and the first-place Rockies. That would have been narrative enough. But…...
