Rockies' Tony Wolters: Not starting again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolters is out of the lineup Sunday against the Mariners.

The 28-year-old started nine of the first 11 games of the season, but he's now on the bench for the fourth straight contest. The team hasn't reported an injury, so Wolters' .492 OPS through 34 plate appearances is the likely culprit for the change. Elias Diaz will start behind the plate for the second time in four games, while Drew Butera has also started two games in that stretch.

Rockies' Tony Wolters: Sits for third straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolters will sit for the third straight game Saturday against Seattle, Jenny Cavnar of AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain reports.

It's not clear if Wolters is dealing with an unreported injury or if the Rockies are simply preferring other options. He's hit just .219/.242/.250 through his first 10 games, so a loss of playing time isn't a major surprise. Drew Butera starts behind the plate in his absence.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolters isn't starting Friday's game against the Mariners.

Rockies' Tony Wolters: Getting breather
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolters is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Giants, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Wolters started behind the plate each of the past four days, so he'll get a much-deserved breather Thursday, with the Rockies and Giants wrapping up their four-game set with a day game after a night game. Drew Butera checks in as the Rockies' catcher and No. 9 hitter.

Rockies' Tony Wolters: Receives day off Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolters isn't in the lineup Saturday against the Padres.

Although the Rockies are carrying three catchers to begin the season, Wolters has gotten the nod in five of the team's first six games, going 3-for-18 with a double, three RBI and three strikeouts. Drew Butera will start behind the dish and bat ninth Saturday.

Rockies' Tony Wolters: Drives in one run Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolters went 1-for-4 with one RBI in Sunday's win against the Rangers.

Although the Rockies are carrying three catchers on their 30-man roster, Wolters has gotten the nod behind the plate in two of the team's three games to begin the season. He drove in an insurance run in the ninth inning Sunday as Colorado picked up their second consecutive win. However, the 28-year-old has gone just 1-for-7 over his first two games this year and has limited fantasy value as he's hit just four home runs with 85 RBI over the past three seasons.

Rockies' Tony Wolters: Set as primary catcher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolters will open the year as the Rockies' primary catcher, Kyle Newman and Jeff Bailey of The Denver Post report.

There is stiff competition between Elias Diaz, Dom Nunez and Drew Butera for one, or perhaps two roster spots, but Wolters' spot is safe. Fortunately for him, spring performance won't affect his standing, as his .490 OPS in 20 spring at-bats was easily the worst mark of the four backstops.

Rockies' Tony Wolters: Loses arbitration case
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wolters lost his arbitration case Tuesday and will earn $1.9 million in 2020, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

Wolters filed for $2.475 million but the team ultimately won the arbitration case. The 27-year-old had a .262/.337/.329 slash line with one home run and 42 RBI in 121 games last season, and he's in line to see significant time behind the plate again during 2020 due to his defensive abilities.
