Rockies' David Dahl undergoes shoulder surgery

It’s a relief for the Rockies that Dahl is on track for next season, as the 26-year-old has largely been a quality member of their lineup since his career began in 2016.

Who will win the World Series? How about MVP?

The MLB Postseason is upon us! Even though the Rockies didn’t make it this year, the Purple Row staff still offered their predictions as to how things would play out in the expanded playoffs that are immediately following a pandemic-shortened 60-game regular season:

Only two left-handed relievers pitched for the Rockies in 2020. They tossed a combined 11 1?3 innings.

One of those arms, James Pazos, was designated for assignment on Monday.

Pazos pitched in six games this year, throwing a combined 5 1?3 innings. His left-handed counterpart in the bullpen, Phillip Diehl, threw six frames over six appearances of his own. For all of September, both...

The 2020 season for the Rockies is officially behind us. Some fans had high hopes, some had low expectations. The Rockies performance this season was not an improvement from last year, but it wasn’t a massive decline either. In 2019 the Rockies record ended at 71-91, this year they ended the season at 26-34 which would be approximately at 70-92 in a regular length...

D-backs send Rockies into offseason with blowout loss

In like a lion; out like a lamb.

After such a promising start to the season, the Colorado Rockies finished with a whimper — and it was the last-place Diamondbacks that provided the final blow. Colorado lost, 11-3, on Sunday to cap a frustrating, sometimes exciting and mostly strange campaign. The Rockies conclude 2020 with a disappointing 26-34 record (including a 15-31 slide after their hot...

Rox face D-backs in season finale

If misery truly loves company, Rockies and Diamondbacks fans can commiserate today on a forgettable, yet weird, season. The NL West foes — and current basement dwellers in the division — square off in the 2020 finale this afternoon in Arizona.

One of Colorado’s bright spots this season, Kyle Freeland (2-2, 3.69), will start for the Rockies (26-33). Freeland has bounced back nicely from his 2019 struggles, but...

Colorado Rockies news and analysis for Sunday, September 27, 2020

Today the Rockies will play their final baseball game of the 2020 season. Speaking for myself, good riddance.

Don’t get me wrong, those first two weeks were incredibly fun, especially after waiting an extra three months to even start the season. But the fact that the team is 25-33 (pending Saturday’s result) tells you just how ugly things have been since then (refer to my Rockpile last week...

Rockies avoid last place in NL West with win against Arizona

If you would’ve said that the Rockies would win this game 10-3, I wouldn’t have believed you. They struggled embarrassingly so in the first inning but luckily snapped out of it in the second to get back on track. Germán pitched a great game; he had plenty of run support, and even with the teams’ defensive troubles, his final line on the night came to: 7 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 1 BB, 7 SO. It wasn’t...

Colorado’s pitching misfortune in 2020 has unfolded before our eyes. Scott Oberg missed the entire season due to blood clots in his arm. Peter Lambert’s forearm strain progressed into Tommy John surgery. Jon Gray ended his season in early September with shoulder inflammation. Bryan Shaw, Jake McGee and Wade Davis were unable to complete year three of their three-year deals.

Too little too late, Rockies mathematically eliminated from playoffs

Game 1: Diamondbacks 4, Rockies 0

After an extra-inning win in San Francisco on Thursday, the Rockies offense was sluggish against the Diamondbacks. Zac Gallen had their number, instigating two double plays (both to Ryan McMahon) and striking out a career-high 10 batters.

With the loss, the Rockies were officially eliminated from postseason contention.

The Rockies enter Friday’s doubleheader needing a miracle to make the playoffs, however, they have not yet been mathematically eliminated. With some key veterans injured, they will need some younger, less experienced players to make the most of the opportunities they have left in the short season. Antonio Santos, ranked as the 20th best prospect in the Rockies’ system by Fangraphs, will...

There’s no nice way to say it: The Rockies’ bullpen is terrible.

This no surprise, nor is it a one-year trend. Losing Scott Oberg (blood clots) for the season didn’t help.

It’s a serious problem. We’ve all watched the late-inning collapses and felt that pain of a quality start wasted or a comeback erased, all while the ineffectiveness reaches historic proportions.

With the win the Rockies take the season series from the Giants

The Rockies staved off mathematical elimination for one more day by defeating the Giants in extras, 5-4. Twas a sacrifice fly in the top of the 11th off the bat of Raimel Tapia that sealed the deal. The much maligned Rockies bullpen managed to allow just one run in 5 2?3 innings. With the win, the Rockies take the season series from San Francisco, even though the Giants currently occupy the...
