Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Headed back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday, Jenny Cavnar of AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain reports.

He went just 4-for-18 (.222) with one home run and zero steals in 14 games with the big club. Considering the Rockies weren't finding at-bats for him, it certainly made sense to send him back to Triple-A. Tapia has a lot of potential as a borderline five-category fantasy option, but has not yet been given a fair shake with the big club. He has a .308/.353/.527 slash line with 10 home runs and 18 steals in 340 plate appearances at Triple-A.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Slugs decisive grand slam
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia supplied a pinch-hit grand slam Friday in the Rockies' 11-10 win over the Diamondbacks.

Tapia's first home run of the season proved to be the decisive hit of the night, as it vaulted the Rockies to an 11-8 lead in the seventh inning. Though he's slashed .283/.326/.410 across 228 career plate appearances in the majors, Tapia seems unlikely to pick up consistent at-bats any time soon due to the crowding in the Colorado outfield. Since being promoted from Triple-A Albuquerque on June 30, Tapia has started in just two of the Rockies' 15 games.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Called up to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia was promoted to the major leagues Saturday.

Tapia has yet to appear in the big leagues this season. In 92 major-league games over the past two seasons, the young outfielder has hit a mediocre .283/.322/.394. He's hitting .308/.353/.527 in 74 games for Triple-A Albuquerque this year. Jon Gray was optioned in a surprising corresponding move.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Will open in minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia will be optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque, Nick Groke of The Denver Post reports.

Tapia was considered likely to open on the big-league roster and potentially even win a starting outfield role at the beginning of this spring, but his chances decreased after the team brought back Carlos Gonzalez. Tapia was left to battle for a bench role with infielder Ryan McMahon. McMahon won that battle after hitting .328/.375/.537 this spring, compared to Tapia's .242/.284/.355 line. Tapia will return to Albuquerque with little to prove, as he hit .369/.397/.529 in 58 games there last season. When he eventually returns to the big leagues, he's a good bet to produce a strong (Coors-inflated) batting average with a handful of steals, though his value will ultimately depend on his playing time.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Path to playing time murkier
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia's chances of breaking camp with the major-league club decreased following the signing of Carlos Gonzalez, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Tapia was initially in the conversation for a starting outfield role, but with a veteran run producer now in camp to combine with Charlie Blackmon, Ian Desmond and Gerardo Parra, the outfield may be too crowded for Tapia. The 24-year-old may begin the season at Triple-A Albuquerque in order to get consistent at-bats, but his speed (17-for-21 in stolen base attempts last season) and contact ability (80 percent contact rate this spring) will make him appealing if he's able to carve out consistent at-bats at some point.
