Rockies' Robert Stephenson: Returns from injured list
Stephenson (illness) was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list Friday and allowed two earned runs on two hits in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader loss to the Nationals, which marked his first appearance since being activated.
In his first outing in a week following his stint on the IL, Stephenson served up a two-run home run to Riley Adams in the eighth inning. Stephenson now owns a 5.56 ERA and 1.59 WHIP across 11.1 frames this season, and he will likely continue to occupy a low-leverage role out of the Rockies bullpen.... See More ... See Less

Rockies' Robert Stephenson: Gets $1.28M deal for 2022
Stephenson and the Rockies agreed Tuesday on a one-year, $1.28 million contract to avoid arbitration, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
The 29-year-old righty was one of the Rockies' more dependable middle relievers in 2021, turning in a 3.13 ERA and 1.30 WHIP while striking out 52 over 46 innings. He could pick up more setup work after logging only four holds a season ago, but he'll likely enter 2022 behind all of Alex Colome, Carlos Estevez and Daniel Bard in the pecking order for saves....

In his first appearance since being reinstated from the paternity list, Stephenson fired a fantastic inning of work in the 10th to secure his first save of the season after closer Carlos Estevez pitched the ninth.

Stephenson will be away from the team for 1-to-3 days while he welcomes a child into the world.

Rockies' Robert Stephenson: Bound for Colorado
The Rockies acquired Stephenson and outfielder Jameson Hannah from the Reds on Wednesday in exchange for pitchers Jeff Hoffman and Case Williams, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.
The deal features two MLB pieces in Stephenson and Hoffman and two prospects in Hannah and Williams changing organizations. Like Hoffman, Stephenson is a former first-round draft pick who transitioned from starting to relief duty early on during his big-league career. A back strain limited Stephenson to just 11 innings with the Reds in 2020, but when he was healthy late in 2019, he showed some signs of dominance as a late-inning arm. However, even if Stephenson is able to avoid the injured list in Colorado, pitching at Coors Field will likely hurt his chances of delivering the type of ratios that will be useful in fantasy....
