Rockies' Antonio Senzatela: Moves to IL
The Rockies placed Senzatela (back) on the 15-day injured list Tuesday.
Manager Bud Black said after Senzatela suffered a lower-back strain in his start during Monday's 7-6 loss to San Francisco that a move to the IL was a likely outcome for the right-hander, so the transaction doesn't come as a surprise. In the short term, the Rockies have called up Justin Lawrence from Triple-A Albuquerque to provide an extra arm out of the bullpen, but Colorado will likely turn to Ty Blach or Ryan Feltner to take Senzatela's spot in the rotation when a fifth starter is next required....

Rockies' Antonio Senzatela: Diagnosed with back strain
Senzatela left Monday's start against San Francisco early due to a lower-back strain, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.
This is not the news the Rockies were hoping for, as it initially looked as though Senzatela was simply cramping up as he went out for his warmup pitches before the third inning. He'll likely be re-evaluated within the next few days to determine whether he'll require a stint on the injured list, which is a likely outcome at this point but the move is not yet official, per Nick Groke of The Athletic. Chad Kuhl, Ty Blach and Ryan Feltner are all options to start in Senzatela's place Sunday, per Groke.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Antonio Senzatela: Exits start early
Senzatela left Monday's start against the Giants after appearing to cramp up, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports. He allowed one hit and one walk while striking out three across two innings prior to exiting.
Senzatela appeared to be in some discomfort while tossing his warmup pitches before the third inning, and he was unable to continue his outing after a visit from the trainer. If the team does later confirm that he was dealing with cramping issues, he should be in no danger of missing his next start.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Antonio Senzatela: Loses short outing
Senzatela (2-2) was handed the loss during Tuesday's 9-2 defeat at the hands of the Giants, allowing five runs on seven hits and two walks with one strikeout in 3.2 innings.
Senzatela loaded the bases with none out in the second inning before letting all three runners score, then surrendered four straight hits in the fourth to push two more runs across the plate. The 27-year-old has now gone fewer than five innings in his last two turns while recording only one strikeout in each of his last three. He'll most likely take the mound again for a rematch with San Francisco early next week.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Antonio Senzatela: Allows seven hits
Senzatela allowed three runs (two earned) on seven hits and two walks while striking out one across 4.1 innings Thursday against the Nationals. He did not factor into the decision.
Senzatela allowed a home run to Juan Soto in the first inning, but he scattered six additional hits and avoided further significant damage. Senzatela exited the game in the fifth frame with runners on first and third but was bailed out by Jhoulys Chacin who induced a double play from the first batter he faced. As is usually the case, Senzatela was reliant upon generating soft contact as he recorded only one strikeout and five swinging strikes on 86 total pitches. For the season, he has seven strikeouts across 24 innings, yet he's still maintained a solid 3.75 ERA.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Antonio Senzatela: Earns second win
Senzatela (2-1) allowed one earned run on seven hits and two walks while striking out one across 6.1 innings to earn the win Friday against the Reds.
Senzatela wasn't dominant, but he used groundballs to limit the damage, as he induced double plays to end each of the fourth, fifth and sixth frames. Despite the positive outing, Senzatela has a minuscule 6.9 percent strikeout rate for the season and has failed to punch out more than three batters in any start. He's allowed only one home run across his first 19.2 innings to maintain a solid 3.66 ERA.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Antonio Senzatela: Hit hard early
Senzatela (1-1) allowed five earned runs on 10 hits and no walks while striking out three across five innings to take the loss in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against Detroit.
The Tigers jumped on Senzatela early, as he allowed four of his five runs in the first inning. He did manage to settle in from there to give the Rockies some length in his outing, though the game was never particularly competitive. Senzatela has never possessed particularly strong swing-and-miss stuff, though he has a particularly poor five strikeouts across 13.1 innings this season. Even if he is able to limit hard contact, Senzatela's inability to miss bats will likely mean he runs into trouble regularly -- particularly when pitching at home.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Antonio Senzatela: Friday's game postponed
Senzatela won't start Friday at Detroit after the game was postponed due to inclement weather, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
The game will be made up via a doubleheader Saturday, so Senzatela's start should be pushed back only one day. The 27-year-old has a 2.16 ERA, 2.04 WHIP and 2:1 K:BB over 8.1 innings through his first two starts of the season.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Antonio Senzatela: Five strong in win
Senzatela (1-0) got the win during Saturday's 9-6 victory over the Cubs, allowing one run on seven hits with two strikeouts in five innings.
Senzatela scattered seven hits to prevent any one big inning. It was an excellent rebound for Senzatela after he permitted four runs in 3.1 innings Sunday. He currently lines up to face Detroit on Friday.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Antonio Senzatela: Allows 10 baserunners Sunday
Senzatela allowed four runs (one earned) on nine hits and a walk in 3.1 innings during Sunday's win over the Dodgers. He didn't factor into the decision.
Senzatela reached 66 pitches during his 2022 debut after briefly dealing with a lower-leg issue in camp, but he had lackluster results against the Dodgers. He avoided being charged with a loss since the Rockies' offense was effective Sunday, but the right-hander remains an unreliable fantasy option since he's posted a 4.84 ERA across his first five professional seasons. He tentatively lines up to make his next start at home against the Cubs on Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Antonio Senzatela: Scheduled to pitch Tuesday
Senzatela (lower leg) will pitch in a minor-league game Tuesday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Senzatela was scratched from a scheduled Cactus League start Sunday, but the Rockies downplayed the issue. Given that he'll pitch again just two days later, it looks as though his injury isn't anything to get too worried about.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Antonio Senzatela: Scratched with lower-leg injury
Rockies manager Bud Black said that Senzatela has been scratched ahead of his scheduled Cactus League start Sunday against the White Sox due to a lower-leg issue, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
The skipper said the Rockies are just being "super cautious" with Senzatela, who is still expected to make his final start of the Cactus League slate either Monday against the Brewers or Tuesday against the Guardians. Kyle Freeland has been named as the Rockies' starter for the Opening Day game Friday against the Dodgers at Coors Field, while Senzatela and German Marquez are in line to start the final two games of next weekend in some order....

Rockies' Antonio Senzatela: Gives up two homers in spring loss
Senzatela (0-1) allowed five runs on three hits and three walks while striking out three in four innings to take the loss in Tuesday's Cactus League matchup against the Angels.
Senzatela made his spring debut Tuesday, and he issued a pair of two-out walks in the outing while also giving up two homers with two outs in the top of the fourth inning. The right-hander has said this spring he's focused on limiting his mistakes after he posted a 4.42 ERA and 1.34 WHIP in 156.2 innings across 28 starts last year. While Tuesday's results weren't encouraging, he doesn't appear to be in danger of losing his rotation spot ahead of the regular season.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Antonio Senzatela: Signs five-year extension
Senzatela agreed to a five-year, $50.5 million extension with the Rockies on Tuesday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
The deal buys out Senzatela's final two years of team control as well as the first three years of his free agency and includes a club option for a sixth season at $14 million. It looks like a good one for the Rockies, as they'll lock up a pitcher whose 4.84 ERA through his first five major-league seasons is good for a park-adjusted ERA- of 99, indicating he's been almost exactly league-average. His 4.42 ERA this season was nothing special, but both his 3.61 FIP and 4.17 xFIP represented career lows, thanks in part to a career-best 4.8 percent walk rate. The deal is much worse news for those who have Senzatela on their dynasty teams, as his only route out of Coors Field in the next five years will be via trade.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Antonio Senzatela: Fails to complete first inning
Senzatela (4-10) allowed six earned runs on six hits and two walks across two-thirds of an inning, taking the loss to the Diamondbacks on Saturday.
Senzatela struggled immensely to begin the game, allowing eight runners to reach safely -- including three doubles -- before being pulled with two outs in the first inning. After firing at least six innings in each of his prior nine starts, he failed to get through the first frame in what was ultimately his shortest outing of the season. The 26-year-old ends the year with a 4.42 ERA and 1.34 WHIP with 105 strikeouts in 156.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Antonio Senzatela: Posts quality start in no-decision
Senzatela allowed two earned runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out two across six innings in the loss to the Giants on Sunday. He did not factor into the decision.
Senzatela allowed nine total batters to reach base safely, but only one extra-base hit, limiting the damage to a pair of runs. He has eight quality starts in his last nine outings, and he went at least six innings in each of them to combine for a 3.00 ERA. The 26-year-old has a 4.10 ERA and 1.29 WHIP with 105 strikeouts in 156 innings this season.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Antonio Senzatela: Sees end to quality-start streak
Senzatela did not factor in the decision against the Dodgers on Tuesday, hurling six innings and allowing four runs on seven hits and no walks while striking out three.
The right-hander entered the contest with seven straight quality starts dating back to Aug. 11, but that streak came to an end when Los Angeles posted a pair of sixth-inning runs to take a 4-2 lead. Colorado came back in the bottom of the frame to take Senzatela off the hook, though the Dodgers ultimately pulled out the win in extra frames. Despite the end to the impressive streak, the 26-year-old extended his stretch of consecutive starts of at least six innings to eight. Over that span, he has registered a 3.00 ERA and 1.04 WHIP despite earning just two wins. Senzatela is on track to make his next start at home against San Francisco on Sunday.... See More ...

Rockies' Antonio Senzatela: Notches another quality start
Senzatela allowed two runs on seven hits and no walks with seven strikeouts through six innings, taking a no-decision in Wednesday's 3-2 win over Atlanta.
Senzatela handled every opposing bat not named Eddie Rosario on the night, as the Atlanta outfielder produced the RBI single and solo homer that accounted for all of the damage against the Colorado right-hander's line. Wednesday also saw a jump in strikeouts for Senzatela. The 26-year-old has punched out four or fewer in 17 of 25 starts this season, but he found enough grip to rack up seven strikeouts in rain-soaked Atlanta. He'll look to build on this performance in his next outing, which is tentatively scheduled to come Tuesday against the Dodgers.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Antonio Senzatela: Another quality start
Senzatela allowed two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out three over six innings in a no-decision against the Phillies on Thursday.
Make it six straight quality starts for Senzatela, who allowed a solo homer to Bryce Harper in the first inning but little else. He was not personally rewarded with a win for his efforts, something he's familiar with -- Senzatela went 10 straight starts without a win from June 8 to Aug. 23 before earning wins in his two starts prior to Thursday. The team context works against him and all the contact leaves him susceptible to blowups, especially at home. Senzatela lines up for a road start in Atlanta next week.... See More ... See Less
