Rockies' Chris Rusin: Sent outright to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rusin was outrighted to Triple-A Albuquerque on Wednesday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Rusin will stick in the Rockies' organization and report to the Isotopes after passing through waivers untouched. The southpaw made just two appearances for the big club prior to being designated for assignment last week, allowing four runs on five hits and a walk in one inning of work.

Rockies' Chris Rusin: Removed from 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rusin was designated for assignment by the Rockies on Friday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Rusin was activated off the injured list last week but won't stick on the 40-man roster after allowing four runs in his two appearances. The 32-year-old also struggled last season with a 6.09 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 47:26 K:BB over 54.2 innings. Rusin could end up at Triple-A Albuquerque if he goes unclaimed on waivers.

Rockies' Chris Rusin: Back from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rusin (back) was activated from the 10-day injured list Friday.

Rusin finished up his rehab assignment Wednesday with an outing for Triple-A Albuquerque and is set to join the big-league club for the first time this season. The left-hander had been nursing a back injury since the beginning of March, though he's finally back to full strength and will aim to get back to his 2017 form, when he posted a 2.65 ERA and 71:19 K:BB over 85 frames.

Rockies' Chris Rusin: Another rehab appearance on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rusin (back) will make another rehab appearance with Triple-A Albuquerque on Wednesday, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.

Rusin has already made seven rehab appearances between Triple-A Albuquerque and Double-A Hartford, posting a 5.84 ERA and 9:5 K:BB across 12.1 innings during those outings. While Rusin is inching closer to a return, the Rockies want to play it safe and build his innings up before activating him from the injured list, leaving the left-hander without a concrete return date.

Rockies' Chris Rusin: Set for another rehab outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rusin (back) is expected to make his next rehab appearance Tuesday with Triple-A Albuquerque, the Associated Press reports.

Rusin has already completed three outings at Albuquerque, covering one inning on each occasion. Manager Bud Black said Sunday that the Rockies don't have a clear target date for Rusin's return, so the lefty may need to pitch on back-to-back days in the minors to convince the organization he's back to full health.

Rockies' Chris Rusin: Begins rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rusin (back) struck out one over one scoreless inning in a rehab appearance with Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday.

Back pain popped up in mid-March and forced Rusin to the 10-day injured list to begin the regular season. He faced live hitters during the final week of April and joined the team's top minor-league affiliate right away for his rehab assignment, so it would seem like Rusin's not too far off from rejoining the big-league club. Rusin struggled mightily last season, posting a 6.09 ERA and 1.50 WHIP, but was much better the year prior (2.65 ERA, 1.11 WHIP).

Rockies' Chris Rusin: To throw live BP on Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rusin (back) is scheduled to throw live batting practice Tuesday, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.

Rusin was placed on the injured list at the end of March with a back issue, and though his progress has been slow to this point, he's finally ready to face live hitters. He's slated to throw two separate BP sessions this week, and assuming all goes well, he'll be given the green light to embark on a rehab stint.

April 20, 2019 07:20 PM
Rockies' Chris Rusin: Plays catch Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rusin (back) played catch on the field Saturday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Rusin has been dealing with back pain since early March and reportedly hadn't been making great progress. It's a positive that he's now throwing, but it's not clear when he's expected to return.

April 14, 2019 04:44 PM
Rockies' Chris Rusin: Not near return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Bud Black said Sunday that Rusin (back) is "not as far along as we have hoped," Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

Rusin threw some Sunday but apparently still isn't close to making a return. The 32-year-old has been sidelined since the start of March as he continues to deal with back pain.

March 29, 2019 12:44 AM
Rockies' Chris Rusin: Lands on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rusin (back) was placed on the 10-day IL.

He hasn't pitched in a game since March 1 due to back pain, and remains without a timetable to return.

March 17, 2019 01:00 PM
Rockies' Chris Rusin: Opening Day status in doubt
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Bud Black said Rusin (back) is doubtful for Opening Day, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.

Rusin hasn't pitched in a game since March 1 due to back pain, and with Opening Day less than two weeks away, it doesn't sound like the southpaw will have enough time to get up to speed before the start of the season. It's unclear when Rusin will be ready to join the Rockies at this point.

March 13, 2019 12:00 PM
Rockies' Chris Rusin: Dealing with back pain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rusin hasn't pitched in a Cactus League game since March 1 due to back pain, but he is hopeful that he will be ready for the start of the season, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

He will throw a side session Wednesday, and as a reliever, he doesn't need to make more than a few appearances to get ready for the start of the season. Consider Rusin questionable for Opening Day.

November 29, 2018 07:28 PM
Rockies' Chris Rusin: Agrees to deal with Rockies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rusin signed a one-year, $1.68 million contract with the Rockies on Thursday, avoiding arbitration.

After posting a 2.65 ERA across 85 innings in 2017, Rusin took a step back in 2018, making two trips to the disabled list and struggling to a 6.09 ERA and 1.50 WHIP across 54.2 innings. The southpaw ended the season on a high note, however, compiling a 2.08 ERA and 10:2 K:BB across 8.2 innings in September. The groundball pitcher should once again fill a middle-relief role for the Rockies in 2019.

Rockies' Chris Rusin: Reinstated from disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rusin (heel) was activated from the 10-day DL on Thursday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Rusin will return to the bullpen after appearing in a trio of minor-league games over the past week. He should be immediately available during Thursday's game against the Dodgers. In a corresponding move, the Rockies demoted Yency Almonte to Triple-A.

Rockies' Chris Rusin: Makes second rehab appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rusin (heel) covered 1.1 innings in relief Sunday for Triple-A Albuquerque in his second rehab appearance with the affiliate. He gave up two earned runs on three hits and walk and struck out one.

While Rusin wasn't particularly sharp Sunday, he didn't report any setbacks during the outing and should soon be ready to return to the big club. The Rockies may want to see Rusin pitch on back-to-back days in the minors before activating him from the 10-day disabled list.

August 1, 2018 05:28 PM
Rockies' Chris Rusin: Nearing rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rusin (heel) tossed live batting practice Wednesday without any issue, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

Rusin was placed on the 10-day disabled list July 24 due to plantar fasciitis. Following his latest throwing session, he said his foot feels good, and if he can get through Thursday without any soreness, he'll embark on a minor-league rehab assignment with Triple-A Albuquerque by the end of the week.

July 25, 2018 01:08 PM
Rockies' Chris Rusin: Headed to DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rusin was placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday with plantar fasciitis.

Rusin had a 6.81 ERA in 39.2 innings for the big club prior to hitting the shelf. He trades places with Harrison Musgrave (hip), who was activated from the DL in a corresponding move.

July 21, 2018 09:08 PM
Rockies' Chris Rusin: Keeping ball in park better before break
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rusin produced a 2.31 ERA in his final 12 appearances before the All-Star break.

The 2018 campaign has been a down year for the veteran lefty, as his season ERA sits at a lofty 6.18 despite the recent string of strong appearances. Home runs and a lack of control are largely to blame, as his 1.6 HR/9 and 4.4 BB/9 are easily career highs. However, he hasn't allowed a homer since June 7 and has walked just seven hitters since then. If Rusin can keep this up in the second half, he could see more high-leverage situations again and gather more holds down the stretch.

Rockies' Chris Rusin: Scuffling since returning from DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rusin has allowed a run in all but one of his seven appearances since returning from the disabled list.

Entering the month of May, the long reliever possessed a middling 4.97 ERA and 1.34 WHIP. Those figures have ballooned to 7.29 and 1.57, respectively, following Saturday's debacle against the Reds in which he allowed two runs and failed to record an out. Rusin was quietly one of the Rockies' top relievers last season, producing a 2.65 ERA in 85 frames, but he hasn't been able to recapture that feel at all this year. It's unclear if the intercostal strain that sidelined him in April is still affecting him or not, though it would go a long way in explaining his struggles.

May 4, 2018 03:20 PM
Rockies' Chris Rusin: Activated from disabled list Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rusin (ribs) was reinstated from the 10-day disabled list Friday, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

Rusin wound up spending 12 days on the DL due to a right intercostal strain. He was able to throw a bullpen session last weekend and didn't experience any discomfort over the past few days, so he should be fully operational heading into a series against the Mets. Over eight appearances out of the bullpen this season, he's logged a 4.97 ERA and 1.34 WHIP.
