      Rockies' David Hale: Claimed off waivers by Orioles on Monday

      Hale was claimed off waivers by the Orioles on Monday and was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk. Hale was designated for assignment by the Rockies on Friday, and it appears he was intriguing enough to Baltimore to warrant a waiver claim. The right-hander was anything but impressive in two appearances with the Rockies this season, but if he can crack the major league roster at some point this season, leaving the hitter-friendly Coors Field would certainly help out his value.

      Rockies' David Hale: Designated for assignment

      Hale was designated for assignment by the Rockies on Friday. He didn't fare well in his first appearance of the season last weekend, allowing three runs on three hits and two walks over 1.2 innings. The door for Hale to become a major league starter was already closed, and it seems the Rockies ruled out the possibility of him developing into a useful bullpen option. Hale will now be subjected to waivers.

      Rockies' David Hale: Recalled from Triple-A

      Hale was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque on Saturday, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports. Hale will come up for the first time this season to take the roster spot of Nick Hundley, who was placed on the 7-day concussion DL on Saturday. The 25-year-old has allowed five hits and one earned run in two starts (6.0 innings) at Triple-A this season.

      Rockies' David Hale: Optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque

      Hale was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday. Hale was competing for the fifth starter spot in Colorado with Jon Gray (abdomen) out, but the team will apparently go with a competition between Christian Bergman, Yohan Flande, and Chris Rusin. Hale had a spring training to forget, suffering through a hamstring injury then throwing a mediocre 1.2 innings in his debut. Hale will head to Albuquerque and serve as depth for the Rockies.

      Rockies' David Hale: Could be No. 5 starter to begin season

      Hale could be the No. 5 starter to begin the season now that Jon Gray (abdomen) will not be ready for the start of the season, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports. Other candidates for the last rotation spot include right-hander Christian Bergman and left-handers Yohan Flande and Chris Rusin (finger), although Rusin will not be ready for the beginning of the season either. Colorado has also not ruled out the possibility of using a four-man rotation at first given that they have two off days in the first week of the regular season. Hale was hampered by a hamstring injury this spring and wasn't very impressive in his lone spring appearance, but he could be in line for the rotation spot if the Rockies elect to keep Bergman in the bullpen and don't want to sacrifice a 40-man roster spot so that Flande can take Gray's spot.

      Rockies' David Hale: Makes spring debut Monday

      Hale (hamstring) allowed a run on three hits in 1.2 innings in his sporing debut Monday. He also walked a batter and struck out another. After pitching in a "B" game Thursday, Hale felt healthy enough to pitch in a real game. Although the results weren't great, he appeared to be healthy and ready to continue pitching during camp. This is a good sign going forward, although the injury may have jeopardized his ability to garner a roster spot. He has a few more opportunities to impress the Rockies brass, but he has an uphill battle going forward after missing some time this spring.

      Rockies' David Hale: Pitches in "B" game Thursday

      Hale (hamstring) pitched 1.2 scoreless innings in a "B" game Thursday, allowing one hit while striking out one batter and walking another. This is the first time Hale has been able to appear in a game situation since pulling his hamstring in late February. It's unclear what the next step in his recovery is, but he could appear in a major league spring training game sometime soon as long as his hamstring is feeling good in the days following the outing.

      Rockies' David Hale: Pulls hamstring Saturday

      Hale pulled a hamstring Saturday, Nick Groke of the Denver Post reports. The team went ahead and lifted Hale from his live batting practice session. Hale took a step forward with his control last year, but simply allows too much contact to make it as much more than a long reliever/spot starter.

      Rockies pitcher David Hale struggles in no-decision vs. D-Backs

      Rockies pitcher David Hale got the start on Thursday and allowed four runs on six hits and two walks across five innings in a no-decision against the Diamondbacks. He struck out three. Hale is simply not a very good pitcher and that proved to be the case yet again here. He now maintains a 6.09 ERA and 1.47 WHIP in 12 starts this season. Hale is simply a stop-gap pitcher for the Rockies and he may have trouble finding an opening day roster spot come next year.

      Rockies SP David Hale picks up win over Dodgers on Friday

      Rockies starter David Hale (5-5) gave up a single run on five hits and two walks while striking out four over five innings in Friday's win over the Dodgers. Friday was arguably Hale's best outing of the season though, given his 7.38 ERA and 1.69 WHIP over his prior 11 appearances, the bar was not set too high. The young right-hander has disappointed mightily this season after showing some promise in Atlanta in 2014.
