Almonte was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Tuesday.
Almonte will head back to the minor leagues despite posting a 4.02 ERA and 1.28 WHIP with nine strikeouts over 15.2 innings this season with the Rockies. Yonder Alonso was selected from Triple-A in a corresponding move.
Almonte will be called up as the 26th man for Monday's doubleheader against the Giants, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.
Almonte owns a strong 2.45 ERA in 11 innings for the Rockies this season, though his 8:6 K:BB suggests he hasn't pitched nearly that well. His ERA in 24 innings for Triple-A Albuquerque is a mediocre 4.88. He'll likely head back to the minors following the doubleheader.
Almonte was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.
Since being called up May 4, Almonte hasn't surrendered a run over 6.2 innings of work out of the bullpen. He's struck out seven and walked four over that stretch. Despite the right-hander's success, the Rockies have sent him to the minor leagues and have recalled Jeff Hoffman in a corresponding move.
Almonte was recalled by the Rockies on Saturday.
Almonte has a 2.84 ERA in 19 innings at the big-league level over the last two seasons. He'll take the roster spot vacated by Tyler Anderson, who was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque in a corresponding move.
Almonte was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.
Almonte tossed 1.2 scoreless frames in his last appearance Friday against the Giants, but he'll head to Triple-A along with Yonathan Daza following this latest announcement. In corresponding moves, Drew Butera and Noel Cuevas were promoted to the big-league team.
Almonte was called up from Triple-A Albuquerque on Sunday.
Almonte made 14 appearances out of the bullpen with the Rockies last season and pitched well with a 1.84 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 14:4 K:BB over 14.2 innings. The 24-year-old struck out the side in his lone appearance with Albuquerque this season.
Almonte was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque.
Almonte, who recently transitioned to being a full-time reliever, will serve as organizational bullpen depth in 2019.
Almonte is being considered a full-time reliever heading into the season, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.
Almonte spent time as both a starter and a reliever in the minors last season, producing a 5.56 ERA in 43 frames for Triple-A Albuquerque. However, he shined in the majors, allowing just three earned runs in 14.2 innings of work for a sparkling 1.84 ERA. His 3.00 FIP suggests he was a bit lucky, however, and there are other long-relief options to compete against as well, including Chris Rusin, Harrison Musgrave and potentially even Chad Bettis, Antonio Senzatela or Jeff Hoffman if they aren't used in the rotation.
Almonte was recalled by the Rockies on Saturday.
Almonte has thrown nine innings of relief for the Rockies this season, allowing just a single run. He'll provide additional depth for the stretch run.
Almonte was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Thursday, Nick Groke of The Athletic Denver reports.
Almonte will head back to the minors to free up a roster spot for Chris Rusin (heel), who was activated from the disabled list in a corresponding move. The 24-year-old Almonte owns a pristine 1.00 ERA across seven appearances (9.0 innings) for the big club this season, so he should be back in the majors once additional bullpen help is needed.
Almonte was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque on Sunday.
Almonte has been living out of a suitcase lately with three moves in four days. He was called up Thursday, sent down Saturday and brought right back up Sunday. This time, he'll be replacing Bryan Shaw, who hit the disabled list with a calf strain. Almonte appeared twice for the Rockies this season, allowing a pair of unearned runs over two innings.
Almonte was optioned back to Triple-A Albuquerque on Saturday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Almonte appeared in both of the past two days for the Rockies after being called up earlier this week. During those contests, he allowed two unearned runs off one hit and one walk while striking out one across two innings of relief. Look for him to return to Colorado when the club needs a replenishment of bullpen arms.
Almonte was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque on Thursday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Almonte will offer a fresh arm out of the Rockies' bullpen after manager Bud Black deployed six relievers in Wednesday's 10-8 win. The right-hander was scheduled to start for the Isotopes on Thursday, so he'll be available to pitch multiple innings out of the bullpen if necessary. He posted a 6.27 ERA and 22:12 K:BB across nine starts (33 innings) with Albuquerque prior to getting the call. Ryan McMahon was sent to the minors in a corresponding roster move.
Almonte is back in action with Triple-A Albuquerque after missing a little over two weeks with a nerve issue in his throwing elbow.
He logged one inning (giving up one run) on April 22, and then gave up three runs over five frames on April 29, returning to a starter's workload. Almonte would be slightly interesting if he were in a different organization, but his shaky command/control paired with a future home of Coors Field limits the intrigue in 2018, even if he gets a call later this season.
Almonte was removed from his Opening Day start with Triple-A Albuquerque due to a nerve problem in his right elbow, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Elbow injuries are always a bit concerning, but big-league manager Bud Black says there's no need to worry. Almonte has dealt with this problem before and is only expected to miss just a few starts. No firm timetable for his return has been released at this point, but it seems like his best-case scenario is an early-May return.
Almonte was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Almonte was in the mix for an Opening Day roster spot, but a 7.82 ERA across 12.2 Cactus League innings prompted the Rockies to send him back to the minors for some more seasoning. The 23-year-old split time between the Isotopes and Double-A Hartford in 2017, posting a combined 2.91 ERA across 111.1 innings. He could make his major-league debut at some point in 2018 if he holds his own at Triple-A to open the year.
Almonte has notched 36 strikeouts in 35.1 innings (seven starts) with an ERA of 1.78 for Double-A Hartford.
After pitching well at Rockies spring training, Almonte took his strong showings and transferred them to his Double-A starts. His ERA is down this year from the 3.00 it was at last season for Hartford, and he's holding batters to a .198 average. Almonte has shown that he'll be ready for Triple-A sometime soon, and his status on the 40-man roster makes him a candidate for the big-league roster sometime this year too.
Almonte was reassigned to minor league camp Monday, Nick Groke of The Denver Post reports.
A middle-level prospect in the Rockies system, Almonte held his own against major league hitters this spring, striking out five while allowing just one run in four innings pitched. He hasn't pitched a game above Double-A yet in his career, though, so he'll head back to the minors for more seasoning before potentially reappearing in the big leagues later in the season.
Almonte was added to Colorado's 40-man roster Friday, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.
Almonte impressed as a starter as he progressed through the Rockies system in 2016, most recently posting a 3.00 ERA in five starts with Double-A Hartford. The 22-year-old's mid- to upper-90s fastball and hard slider may make him more of a reliever going forward, which actually could help him move up the organizational ladder quickly if he can translate his success to the upper levels of the minor leagues. That being said, he'll likely spend a good chunk of time with Double-A Hartford and/or Triple-A Albuquerque in 2017 as he gears up for big league hitters.
Almonte, 22, was promoted to Double-A Hartford over the weekend after posting a 3.71 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 134:39 K:BB in 138.1 innings in the hitter-friendly California League.
The Rockies acquired Almonte on the cheap, sending reliever Tommy Kahnle to the White Sox this past offseason, and that trade is starting to look like a heist for Colorado. Almonte sits in the mid-90s with his fastball and has touched as high as 98 mph, while also demonstrating impressive command in a difficult pitching environment. Rockies pitching prospects are always tricky to evaluate, but on pure stuff, Almonte needs to be on the radar in dynasty leagues.
