The Colorado Rockies have won a lot of series lately, but this was a big test hosting the defending champion Houston Astros, one of the most heavily featured squads in our list of MLB DPR leaders.
Going against Gerrit Cole and Charlie Morton—two of the top-20 starters per our in-house metric—made that test even greater. Considering all that, taking the Astros into the 9th inning in both games was quite the win, even if Colorado ended up splitting the series.
As we do after each series, using our advanced statistics and our in-house all-encompassing metric DPR, here are our individual grades.
Note: The scores below are each player’s average DPR for the series. All Rockies stats can be found here.
