Rockies' Yency Almonte: Notches first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Almonte picked up the save Tuesday against the Giants, tossing 1.2 scoreless innings and allowing one hit. He did not walk or strike out any batters.

Almonte was called upon to relieve ace German Marquez with the tying run at the plate and one out in the eighth inning. He induced a double play to get out of the jam, and Colorado chose to leave him on the mound in the ninth to get three more outs and notch the save. The Rockies' closer situation is hazy with Wade Davis (shoulder) placed on the injured list Sunday, but Almonte doesn't figure to be in line for many more save opportunities. Jairo Diaz sat out Tuesday after registering saves in consecutive opportunities the previous two days, and he figures to be the primary closing option while Davis is out.

Rockies' Yency Almonte: Makes 2020 debut Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Almonte fired two scoreless innings in relief as he picked up a hold during Sunday's win against the Rangers. He allowed one hit and no walks while striking out three.

Almonte had a subpar season in 2019 in which he posted a 5.56 ERA and 1.56 WHIP in 34 innings in the majors as he was shuffled between the big leagues and Triple-A Albuquerque. However, he got off to a strong start in his 2020 season debut as he allowed just one baserunner after relieving Kyle Freeland in the seventh inning. Despite his effective outing Sunday, the right-hander's fantasy value is limited as a middle reliever with inconsistent results in the big leagues.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Almonte was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque on Wednesday, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.

Rockies' Yency Almonte: Returns to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Almonte was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque following Wednesday's doubleheader against the Nationals.

Almonte was called up to serve as the 26th man for the twin bill, but he didn't take the mound in either contest. The 25-year-old returns to Triple-A, where he has a 4.88 ERA, 1.79 WHIP and 27:19 K:BB over 24 innings this season.

Rockies' Yency Almonte: Called up for doubleheader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Almonte was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque to serve as the 26th man for the Rockies' doubleheader Wednesday against the Nationals, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

Almonte will provide the Rockies with an extra long arm out of the bullpen for the twin bill before likely returning to Albuquerque on Thursday. Over 15.2 innings at the big-league level this season, Almonte has surrendered seven earned runs on 13 hits and seven walks.

July 23, 2019 04:08 PM
Rockies' Yency Almonte: Dispatched to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rockies' Yency Almonte: Up as 26th man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

May 24, 2019 06:04 PM
Rockies' Yency Almonte: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rockies' Yency Almonte: Recalled by Rockies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rockies' Yency Almonte: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rockies' Yency Almonte: Rejoins major-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rockies' Yency Almonte: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rockies' Yency Almonte: Moves to full-time relief role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rockies' Yency Almonte: Recalled Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

August 9, 2018 05:36 PM
Rockies' Yency Almonte: Back in minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

June 24, 2018 02:48 PM
Rockies' Yency Almonte: Sent right back to Colorado
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rockies' Yency Almonte: Returns to Albuquerque
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

June 21, 2018 03:08 PM
Rockies' Yency Almonte: Promoted to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rockies' Yency Almonte: Healthy at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Rockies' Yency Almonte: Dealing with nerve issue in elbow
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
