Rockies call up Jairo Diaz to help ailing bullpen, place CarGo and Anderson on DL

  The Colorado Rockies made a series of roster moves Monday afternoon starting with placing left-handed pitcher Tyler Anderson right back on the Disabled List just one start after coming off of it.

Adam Ottavino’s Wild Day at the Office

Adam Ottavino had three wild pitches this year before Sunday’s game. That’s one of those opening sentences that doesn’t bode well for what happened next. You can’t reduce your wild-pitch total, and it’s generally not newsworthy when someone throws just one wild pitch, regardless of how devastating the ramifications of that errant throw are. For this sort of thing to be...

Jon Gray’s return from injury is just what the Colorado Rockies need

The Rockies don’t need a savior; they need Jon Gray. When news broke after the game on April 13 that Jon Gray’s injury wasn’t simply a nagging toe issue but a stress fracture in his foot, a deep, collective sigh rolled through Rockies’ nation. The Rockies were 7-4 at that point with a series win against the Dodgers under their belt. A promising start. But with Gray and Bettis...

Nolan Arenado’s cycle was 17th at Coors, tying Fenway’s record despite 83-year head start

The Colorado Rockies’ home park of Coors Field has long been known for its crazy ballpark effects favoring hitters, even after the 2002 installation of a humidor dialed it down a bit, and the latest example came with Rockies’ third baseman Nolan Arenado’s cycle Sunday (which ended with a dramatic walk-off home run to beat the San Francisco Giants). As @MLBStatOfTheDay tweeted...
