Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Remains on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia is not starting Tuesday against the Giants.

Tapia has now started just four of the Rockies' first 10 games and has been on the bench for four straight, with Matt Kemp serving as the designated hitter each time. Tapia has just two hits on the season, which hardly helps his case for regular at-bats.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Sitting out again Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia is not in the lineup Monday against the Giants.

Tapia will take a seat for the fourth time in the past five games as he's been in a slump to begin the year. Matt Kemp will once again serve as the designated hitter and bat seventh Monday.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: On bench again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia is out of the lineup for Sunday's game versus the Padres.

Tapia hits the bench for the third time in the last four games as he is 2-for-13 to begin the season. Matt Kemp will serve as the designated hitter Sunday and could seize the everyday role if he continues his strong start.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Not in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against Oakland, Jenny Cavnar of AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain reports.

Tapia hits the bench for the second time in the first five games, finding himself out of the lineup against a righty (Frankie Montas) for the first time. Sam Hilliard will start in left field, while Daniel Murphy rests his legs as the designated hitter.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Set for starting job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia should begin the season as Colorado's starting left fielder, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.

Potential platoon-mate Ian Desmond is opting out of the shortened season, providing Tapia the opportunity to seize control of the starting gig in left field. The 26-year-old had a .275/.309/.415 slash line with nine home runs and nine stolen bases in 138 games last season. Sam Hilliard, the organization's top prospect, could receive a look if Tapia is unable to take advantage of the situation early on.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Could start season in platoon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia could begin the season in a platoon in left field with Ian Desmond, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Tapia spent the offseason trying to bulk up, and reportedly came into camp with 15-20 pounds of extra muscle. He put that to good use by hitting .355/.394/.613 across 33 plate appearances in Cactus League action. Even so, he'll have to hold off Sam Hilliard, another candidate for playing time in left field.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Scores twice, swipes bag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia went 1-for-5 with two runs scored and a stolen base in Sunday's 4-3 win over Milwaukee.

Both of Tapia's runs came late in the game, including the game-tying run in the ninth to send it to extras. The 25-year-old finishes the 2019 campaign with nine homers and nine stolen bases with 54 runs scored.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Hits grand slam
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia launched a grand slam during his only at-bat in Friday's win over the Brewers.

Tapia hit his home run as a pinch hitter in the sixth inning. It was his ninth long ball of the season, his fourth pinch-hit homer and the second pinch-hit grand slam of his career. After a strong second half to the season, the 25-year-old outfielder is batting .276/.311/.419. If he is able to lock in a consistent spot in the lineup, Tapia may hold underrated potential for the 2020 campaign.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Records eighth stolen base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia went 2-for-3 with an RBI single, a run scored, a stolen base and a walk in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Dodgers.

Tapia's contributions came in the third inning, as he plated Garrett Hampson with a single and then stole second base. Tapia completed the lap around the bases on a Charlie Blackmon single. The outfielder has a .279/.315/.417 slash line with eight steals, eight homers, 40 RBI and 50 runs scored in 131 games, but recent hand and knee injuries have hampered his ability to stay in the lineup.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Notches steal in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia (knee) went 1-for-5 with a stolen base Sunday in the Rockies' 10-5 win over the Padres.

Tapia had been on the bench for the Rockies' previous three contests after fouling a ball off himself Wednesday, but his stolen base in the bottom of the first inning indicates the knee injury is no longer a concern. He'll be out of the lineup Monday against the Mets, but that's probably a result of a lefty (Steven Matz) being on the mound for the opposition more than anything else.

September 15, 2019 12:28 PM
Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Rejoins Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia (knee) is starting in left field and batting second Sunday against the Padres.

Tapia was withheld from the lineup the last two games after leaving Thursday's contest with a sore right knee, but he's ready to go for the series finale. The 25-year-old is 1-for-18 over eight games in September.

September 14, 2019 05:32 PM
Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Remains out of action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia (knee) is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Padres.

Tapia is set to miss a third straight start after fouling a ball off his knee Wednesday. Garrett Hampson is starting again against a lefty. It will be between Tapia and Sam Hilliard for starts in center against right-handed pitching moving forward, with David Dahl (ankle) ruled out for the rest of the season.

September 13, 2019 05:36 PM
Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Remains out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia (knee) isn't in the starting lineup for Friday's game against San Diego.

Tapia was scratched from Thursday's starting nine due to right knee soreness, and he'll remain on the bench Friday. He'll continue to be considered day-to-day.

September 12, 2019 02:00 PM
Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Scratched from lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia (knee) was scratched from Thursday's lineup against the Cardinals, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.

Tapia is apparently still sore after fouling a ball off his right knee Wednesday, so he'll head to the bench for Thursday's series finale as Yonathan Daza enters the lineup in his place.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Sitting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Padres.

After returning from the injured list Tuesday, Tapia started in two of the Rockies' four games, going hitless across 11 at-bats. So long as David Dahl (ankle) remains on the shelf, Tapia, Ian Desmond, Garrett Hampson and Sam Hilliard will likely vie for two spots in the outfield in most contests alongside right fielder Charlie Blackmon.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Activated from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia (hand) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Tuesday, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.

As predicted, Tapia will return from the IL on Tuesday, though he's not in the starting lineup. He'd been sidelined by a left hand injury.

September 2, 2019 06:36 PM
Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Could return Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia (hand) might be activated from the injured list Tuesday, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

The Rockies haven't provided much detail on Tapia's recovery to this point, but he appears to be close to full health after landing on the injured list Aug. 26 with a bone bruise on his left hand. He's slashing .290/.326/.440 with eight homers and 38 RBI this season over 117 games for Colorado.

August 26, 2019 02:16 PM
Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Lands on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Colorado placed Tapia (hand) on the 10-day injured list Monday, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.

The Rockies haven't offered a specific timeline for Tapia's return to action, but his move to the IL isn't overly surprising after manager Bud Black admitted Monday that the outfielder was tending to "a really bad bone bruise" in his left hand. While Tapia is on the shelf, Garrett Hampson and Yonathan Daza are expected to vie for starts in the outfield alongside everyday options Charlie Blackmon and Ian Desmond.

Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Tending to bone bruise
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Bud Black said Monday that Tapia is dealing with "a really bad bone bruise" in his left hand, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.

Tapia is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Braves, marking his third consecutive absence on account of the injury. Black said the Rockies are still in the process of determining the severity of Tapia's setback, but the skipper acknowledged the bone bruise is "concerning." If Tapia ends up requiring a stint on the injured list, Garrett Hampson and Yonathan Daza would be in store for more work in the Colorado outfield.

August 26, 2019 01:24 PM
Rockies' Raimel Tapia: Out again Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia (hand) is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Braves.

The Rockies are facing a righty starting pitcher (Julio Teheran) in the make-up game, so the lefty-hitting Tapia's continued absence from the lineup suggests that his hand injury is still a concern. With Tapia on the bench for a third consecutive game, Garrett Hampson will pick up another start in the outfield.
