His surgery was overseen by renowned orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Neal ElAttrache and apparently went according to plan. Rolison confirmed he'll miss the rest of the 2022 season but noted in his post that he expects to be ready to go for the start of the 2023 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ryan Rolison: Slated for surgery
Rolison (shoulder) will undergo surgery in the coming weeks, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.
Rolison had been sidelined with a shoulder injury since the end of spring training, and the Rockies said this week that he hadn't made as much progress in his recovery as the team had hoped. After visiting with a specialist, the southpaw will undergo a procedure that will likely force him to miss the rest of the season. Rolison hasn't yet made his major-league debut, but it's possible that he'll join Colorado in 2023 as long as he's back to full health.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ryan Rolison: Progressing slower than expected
Rolison (shoulder) hasn't made as much progress in his recovery as the Rockies had hoped, so he'll visit a specialist next week, Danielle Allentuck of The Denver Gazette reports.
Rolison was placed on the 60-day injured list with a left shoulder strain at the end of spring training, but his injury hasn't improved much over the last several weeks. A better idea of the left-hander's status will likely come into focus after he's examined by a specialist.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ryan Rolison: Lands on 60-day IL
Rolison was placed on the 60-day injured list Monday with a left shoulder strain.
Rolison has been shut down from throwing for two weeks after receiving two anti-inflammatory shots in his left shoulder, and he'll now be sidelined for at least the first two months of the season. The 24-year-old has yet to make his big-league debut and is likely to pitch at Triple-A Albuquerque once healthy.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ryan Rolison: Facing two-week shutdown
Rolison has received two anti-inflammatory shots in his left shoulder and will be shut down for two weeks, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Rolison was reassigned to minor-league camp in late March, and he was apparently bothered by his shoulder injury throughout spring training. Although he initially thought that he'd be able to play through the injury, he'll take time to recover since his velocity and results were impacted. The southpaw will likely be placed on the 60-day injured list since he'll require time to build up following his shutdown.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ryan Rolison: Goes to MiLB camp
The Rockies optioned Rolison to Triple-A Albuquerque on Thursday.
Rolison was one of four players on the Rockies' 40-man roster that was dispatched to the minors Thursday, leaving Colorado with 47 players remaining at MLB camp. The 24-year-old lefty will likely step into the rotation at Albuquerque, with whom he made 10 starts in 2021. He covered 45.2 innings in those outings, pitching to a 5.91 ERA and 1.48 WHIP....

Rockies' Ryan Rolison: Shielded from Rule 5 draft
Rolison was added to the Rockies' 40-man roster on Friday.
Rolison will no longer be available for selection in the Rule 5 draft. He'll have a chance to make his big-league debut at some point next season, as he's already made 10 Triple-A starts, but his 5.91 ERA there means he still has to conquer that level before earning his next opportunity....

Rockies' Ryan Rolison: Cleared to return at Triple-A
Rolison (hand) returned from Triple-A Albuquerque's 7-day injured list Friday and gave up five runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out four over five innings in the affiliate's 5-1 loss.
Rolison was sidelined for just over nine weeks with a fractured left hand before he began a three-start rehab assignment in the lower levels of the minors earlier this month. After getting sufficient time to build up, Rolison slotted back into the Albuquerque rotation, where he's expected to remain for the duration of the season. Over four starts at Albuquerque this season, Rolison has posted a 5.71 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 19:4 K:BB in 17.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ryan Rolison: Rehab heads to High-A
Rolison (hand) made the third start of his rehab assignment at High-A Spokane on Saturday, tossing five innings and giving up two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out three.
After making the first of his two rehab starts in the rookie-level Arizona Complex League, Rolison was given a tougher assignment over the weekend and acquitted himself well. Rolison, who is on the mend from a fractured left hand, built up to 70 pitches Saturday. He could be cleared to return from the 7-day injured list to make his next start with Triple-A Albuquerque....

Rockies' Ryan Rolison: Rehabbing in ACL
Rolison (hand) began a rehab assignment at the Rockies' rookie-level Arizona Complex League affiliate Aug. 12 and has covered 6.1 innings between his first two outings, giving up seven runs (five earned) on 10 hits and two walks while striking out nine.
Rolison is on the comeback trail after a fractured left hand kept him out of competitive action for just over nine weeks. He covered four innings in his most recent rehab start Monday, so he may only need one or two more turns in the lower levels of the minors before being activated from Triple-A Albuquerque's 7-day injured list....

Rockies' Ryan Rolison: Breaks bone in throwing hand
Rolison broke a bone in his throwing hand while fielding balls and is questionable to return before the end of the season, Joe Healy of Baseball America reports.
It's been a rough go for Rolison, as he was on his way back from appendicitis when he suffered this latest injury. He was supposed to resume throwing by the end of July, but it is unclear if that happened. Prior to getting his appendix removed, Rolison quickly forced a promotion from Double-A Hartford after logging a 3.07 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 20 strikeouts in 14.2 innings (three starts). He has a 4.38 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 15 strikeouts in 12.1 innings through three starts with Triple-A Albuquerque.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ryan Rolison: Recovering from appendicitis
Triple-A Albuquerque placed Rolison on the 7-day injured list June 14 after he had his appendix removed, MLB.com reports. Rockies manager Bud Black said Rolison is expected to be on the shelf for about six weeks.
Rolison, one of the Rockies' top pitching prospects in the upper levels of the minors, compiled a 4.38 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in 12.1 innings over his first three starts with Albuquerque following his promotion from Double-A Hartford. He's not expected to rejoin the Albuquerque rotation until early August, which could hamper the 23-year-old lefty's chances of receiving a late-season call-up to the majors.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ryan Rolison: Promoted to Triple-A
Rolison was promoted to Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Rolison began the minor-league season with Double-A Hartford and made enough progress with his changeup and delivery to receive a promotion early in the year. The left-hander made three starts for Double-A Hartford this year and posted a 3.07 ERA, 20:2 K:BB and 0.89 WHIP in 14.2 innings. Rolison is one of Colorado's top pitching prospects and could make his major-league debut at some point in 2021.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ryan Rolison: Throws two scoreless innings Sunday
Rolison (1-0) gave up one hit and no walks while failing to strike out any batters over two scoreless innings as he earned the win in Sunday's spring game against the White Sox.
Rolison gave up a leadoff double to Yoan Moncada to begin his spring debut Sunday, but he retired the next three batters before pitching a clean fifth inning. Manager Bud Black was pleased with Rolison's performance. "He showed some pitchability," Black said. The southpaw will likely begin the season with Triple-A Albuquerque but could be in line to make his major-league debut at some point in 2021.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ryan Rolison: Not traveling for road trip
Rolison didn't travel with the Rockies for the season-ending road trip this week, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.
The team previously indicated the left-hander would travel with the club for the final trip of the season, but he'll instead face live competition in Arizona in preparation of the instructional league that begins in October. Rolison appeared to have a chance of making his major-league debut, but he'll have to wait until at least 2021.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ryan Rolison: Joining team for road trip
Rolison will be included on the Rockies' taxi squad for their season-ending road trip this week, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.
One of the organization's top pitching prospects, Rolison looks like he could be under consideration to make his MLB debut during the final week of the regular season. As Groke notes, Rolison threw a side session at Coors Field on Sunday, which would put him on normal rest for a spot start Friday, when the Rockies kick off their series in Arizona with a doubleheader. The Rockies have no other obvious candidate to serve as the sixth man in their rotation this week, so Rolison could get the chance to showcase his skills with the hope of breaking camp with the big club in 2021. The 23-year-old split time between the California and South Atlantic Leagues in 2019, posting a 4.40 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 132 strikeouts in 131 innings.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ryan Rolison: Invited to summer camp
Rolison will be a part of the Rockies' 60-man summer camp.
The 22-year-old southpaw is one of the Rockies' top pitching prospects, but he was undone by having to pitch half his games in the hitter-friendly park at High-A Lancaster last year. While he is on track to eventually be a key piece of the Rockies' rotation, he is unlikely to see much time in the majors in 2020.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ryan Rolison: Invited to big-league camp
Rolison was invited to the Rockies' major-league spring training Wednesday.
Rolison spent a majority of the 2019 season pitching for High-A Lancaster, recording a 4.87 ERA, 1.44 WHIP, and 118:38 K:BB in 116.1 innings. Drafted by Colorado 22nd overall in 2018, the highly-rated pitching prospect has earned praise for his excellent command while pitching in an extremely hitter-friendly ballpark for Lancaster. Rolison will have the opportunity to learn from the big-league coaching staff this spring before likely returning to the minors for more seasoning.... See More ... See Less
