(Let us know how you liked this new audio format in the comment section) DENVER- What a difference a year makes. In 2018, the Colorado Rockies bullpen had the worst ERA (5.78) in the National League, from May 13-June 12. In 2019, they had the best ERA (3.35) in MLB, from May 13-June 12. There are some new faces and…...

The beginning of the Colorado Rockies 2019 season was a purposefully designed feeling out process. You might be inclined to argue that this approach cost them a great deal especially during an eight-game losing streak that had some fans and media members reaching for the panic button. But they’ve also learned a lot so far and one of the big…...

His teammates call him “Musky” but you can call him the Musky Professor. For the last couple of weeks, numerous BSN readers and listeners have sent us video footage highlighting a unique, and frankly hilariously brilliant, home run celebration from young lefty reliever Harrison Musgrave. Whenever a member of the Colorado Rockies hits a homer over or into his own…...

Before Sunday’s blown save by Seunghwan Oh, the Colorado Rockies bullpen has flown under the radar somewhat during the first month of the season with the starting rotation taking most the plaudits and the offense receiving much of the criticism before the recent swell in Atlanta. Even after Donaldson’s three-run homer, the Rockies bullpen has the 5th best ERA in…...

The most nerve-racking moment of a whirlwind season for DJ Johnson didn’t even come in a game in which he pitched. It wasn’t his debut or appearing in the postseason, he tells BSN Denver, but the first time he warmed up in San Francisco. “I kept throwing the ball to the backstop,” he says, admitting that as anxious as he…...

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Nobody had a worse all-around 2018 season for the Colorado Rockies than relief pitcher Bryan Shaw. And he knows it. After a half-decade in Cleveland consistently managing to be one of the most reliable relievers in the game, he signed in Colorado for three years and $27 million only to have the worst season of his career…...

On this episode of the BSN Rockies Podcast, Drew Creasman recaps more impressive performances from Jon Gray and Raimel Tapia before jumping into some of the more concerning signs of the early spring; veteran relievers continuing to be very hittable. Will the club truly have a shorter leash this season if those issues persist?...

Las Vegas – The big news heading into the 2018 Colorado Rockies season was the eye-popping amount of money they spent (over $100 million in contracts) in their bullpen that was expected by many, myself absolutely included, to be one of the best collections of relievers in the game. Wade Davis and Bryan Shaw brought with them exemplary resumes and…...

Seunghwan Oh

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…...

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…...

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…...

DENVER – Friday night’s win against the Los Angeles Dodgers came off the heels of the bullpen providing 3.1 innings of shutout baseball against the NL West leaders, tying the series at one apiece. Rockies starting pitcher Jon Gray had surrendered four earned runs in five innings of work and was approached the one hundred pitch mark having already thrown…...

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…...

DENVER – Since the middle of last month, the Colorado Rockies have sent tried to charm, cajole, browbeat and flat out plead for any meaningful help from the bullpen. In the Rockies’ case, the ‘B’ stands for “beleaguered” whenever mentioning the bullpen. The search continues for a reliable answer to who bridges the gap between a starting rotation that has…...

DENVER – It’s been a tale of two seasons for Colorado Rockies reliever Chris Rusin. One of the most reliable relievers in baseball one short year ago, Rusin has been lost on the mound for most of 2018. It’s been a constant battle since his first appearance of the year when he was tagged by the Arizona Diamondbacks for three…...

The same question could be asked about the torrid stretch the offense has been on and the positive signs that the bullpen might be turning a corner. Plus, thoughts on celebrating 25 years…...

DENVER – I’ve never fully understood why people go bungee jumping. Voluntarily falling from high places, strapping yourself onto twisty-turny speed machines, or jumping over long distances on foot or in vehicle—y’know, for fun—has simply never appealed to me, though it clearly does to quite a few people. Similar in function, in fact, likely located in a neighboring section of the…...

DENVER – After 101 starts in the minor leagues, it was expected that right-handed starting pitcher Yency Almonte would make his major league debut as a reliever when he was promoted from Albuquerque on Thursday. Less than expected was Almonte’s first pitch to be in a big spot in the eighth inning with the tying run at the plate. The…...
