Colorado Rockies: Is it time to worry about Bryan Shaw? | Rox Pile
The Colorado Rockies spent the 2017-18 offseason constructing a “super bullpen” with major expenditures including the signing of closer Wade Davis to a three-year, $52 million deal, and bringing in both Jake McGee and Bryan Shaw on three-year, $27 million deals. McGee had an ugly outing in Monday night’s contest against the San Diego Padres, but his ERA remains a very nice...

Rockies unravel in blowout loss

Things got out of hand quickly on Monday night.

The Colorado Rockies looked like they were set up to win. They had a lead that they handed to their stellar bullpen in the seventh inning. Unfortunately things unraveled and a couple tough plays turned into a nine-run meltdown as the San Diego Padres cruised to a 13-5 win.

The bullpen falls apart

There were key moments where the fateful seventh inning could have gone differently. Ian Desmond whiffed on a flyball that set up the go-ahead home...

Rockies place Chris Rusin on 10-day DL, move Carlos Estevez to 60-day DL

The Rockies have announced a trio of pitching moves. Southpaw Chris Rusin will head to the 10-day DL with an intercostal strain, with fellow southpaw Harrison Musgrave replacing him on the active roster.Bringing up Musgrave meant opening a 40-man spot, which the Rox accomplished by shifting reliever Carlos Estevez to the 60-day DL. He opened the year on the 10-day list owing to an oblique issue, but is now said to be dealing with an elbow strain. The team says Estevez is not at risk of...

Is David Dahl, recently called up to the Rockies’ outfield, ready to become a big-league regular?

Since being drafted 10th overall by the Rockies in 2012, David Dahl watched many of the Rockies’ regulars rise from the minors and cement themselves into Colorado’s big-league lineup. For Charlie Blackmon, it was a 6-for-6 hit parade during the homer opener in 2014. For Trevor Story, it was a sizzling start to 2016 in which he mashed ten April homers. And for Dahl, a coming-out campaign seemed imminent in 2016 as well. In that rookie season, he hit .315 with 24 RBIs after being called up...

Rockies pitcher Jon Gray is struggling and needs to make a change

Baseball is a game of inches, so why not take three or four off the mane?

Jon Gray’s struggles on the mound have been well documented this season. They may even have started with the 2017 Wild Card game. After Friday night’s particularly awful outing against the Cubs — the first time in Gray’s career that he has posted three consecutive losses — most writers and fans will focus on things like mechanics, and rightfully so because they’re key. But for topics like that, he’s got...
