  • Nunez was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque following Monday's loss to the Giants, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports. Nunez hasn't done much of anything at the dish to this point, slashing .143/.278/.179 with one double, two RBI and three runs scored. Brian Serven and Carlos Perez are two options to serve as the backup catcher following Nunez's demotion, though a move has yet to be made.

  • Nunez is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Tigers, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports. Nunez picked up his fourth start of the season in the back half of a doubleheader in Saturday's 3-2 win, going hitless over three at-bats. He'll cede catching duties to No. 1 backstop Elias Diaz in the series finale Sunday.

  • Manager Bud Black confirmed Sunday that Nunez will make the Rockies' Opening Day roster as the team's backup catcher, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. Nunez secured his spot after the Rockies reassigned his main competition for the role -- Carlos Perez and Brian Serven -- to their minor-league camp Sunday. Black lauded Nunez for his power and on-base skills, but a 34.6 percent strikeout rate in 2021 limited the impact of the 27-year-old's overall offensive output. Nunez will likely pick up anywhere from one to three starts per week while top backstop Elias Diaz is healthy.

  • Nunez has hit .188 with a run and seven strikeouts across seven Cactus League appearances this spring. Nunez has hit below .200 in each of the last two seasons, and he isn't faring any better in camp ahead of the 2022 campaign. The 27-year-old should split time with Elias Diaz behind the dish this year and isn't a very strong fantasy option even though he gets to play his home games at Coors Field.

  • Nunez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 11-2 loss to the Diamondbacks. Nunez went deep off Zac Gallen in the fifth inning for the Rockies' second run of the game. It was his second long ball in as many games and his 10th of the season. The catcher is slashing just .187/.290/.396 with 31 RBI and 30 runs scored in 259 plate appearances this season.
