by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rockies' Dom Nunez: Sits against southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez hasn't started against a southpaw all season, a trend which will continue Saturday. Elias Diaz starts behind the plate in his absence.

Rockies' Dom Nunez: Remains out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rockies' Dom Nunez: Not starting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez isn't starting Wednesday's game against Miami, Danielle Allentuck of The Denver Gazette reports.

Rockies' Dom Nunez: Plates run Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez went 1-for-2 with a double, an RBI, a run scored and a walk in Sunday's win over the Athletics.

Nunez got the start behind the plate and delivered good results at the plate, crossing home plate in the third following an RBI single from Raimel Tapia and later plating a run in the eighth with a sac fly that scored Ryan McMahon. The catcher has been a decent source of power with five home runs, six doubles and two triples across 129 plate appearances this season.

Rockies' Dom Nunez: Returns after three days off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez will start at catcher and bat eighth Sunday against the Athletics.

Though the lefty-hitting Nunez is back in the lineup, the fact that he was benched for the past three games -- including against a pair of right-handed pitchers -- suggests that he may have moved behind Elias Diaz on the depth chart at catcher. Nunez has been a decent source of power with five home runs, five doubles and two triples across 126 plate appearances, but a massive 40.5 percent strikeout rate has limited him to a .162 batting average.

Rockies' Dom Nunez: Remains out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez isn't starting Saturday's game against the Athletics.

Nunez will be on the bench for a third consecutive game, although Elias Diaz has tended to start against left-handers this year. Diaz will start at catcher and bat eighth against southpaw Cole Irvin on Saturday.

Rockies' Dom Nunez: Remains on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez will sit for the second straight game Friday against Oakland, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

Nunez has handled the majority of the starts against righties this season while sitting against every lefty, but a day off against Frankie Montas on Friday means he's now sat twice in a row against right-handers. Whether he's dealing with a minor injury or has simply fallen out of favor is not yet clear. The latter would certainly make some sense, as he's gone 3-for-40 with 21 strikeouts in his last 15 games. Elias Diaz will make another start behind the plate in his absence.

June 3, 2021 11:56 AM
Rockies' Dom Nunez: Out of Thursday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez is not in Thursday's lineup against the Rangers.

Elias Diaz will start behind the dish and bat eighth. Nunez has started the last three games, so he heads to the bench even with a righty (Mike Foltynewicz) on the hill for Texas. The lefty-hitting backstop has only started against right-handed pitchers this season.

May 29, 2021 03:12 PM
Rockies' Dom Nunez: Not starting Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez isn't starting Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Pirates, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

Nunez started Saturday's matinee and went 0-for-3 with a strikeout. Elias Diaz will start at catcher and bat eighth.

May 27, 2021 02:56 PM
Rockies' Dom Nunez: Sits against southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez isn't starting Game 2 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Mets.

Nunez went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in the first game of Thursday's twin bill, and he'll retreat to the bench with left-hander Joey Lucchesi starting Game 2 for the Mets. Elias Diaz will start behind the dish and bat eighth.

May 24, 2021 02:08 PM
Rockies' Dom Nunez: Resting against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Mets.

The Mets are expected to bring a southpaw (David Peterson) to the hill in Monday's series opener, which likely explains why the lefty-hitting Nunez is getting the day off. Elias Diaz will catch for the second time in five games while Nunez sits.

May 18, 2021 06:40 PM
Rockies' Dom Nunez: Out of Tuesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Padres.

Nunez will take a seat Tuesday after starting the previous two games behind the plate. Elias Diaz will catch for Austin Gomber and bat eighth for the Rockies.

May 15, 2021 05:48 PM
Rockies' Dom Nunez: Sits again Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez will sit for the second game in a row Saturday against Cincinnati, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Saturday marks the first time this season that Nunez has found himself on the bench in consecutive games. Elias Diaz remains the starter behind the plate in his absence.

May 14, 2021 05:00 PM
Rockies' Dom Nunez: Day off Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Reds, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

May 12, 2021 06:48 PM
Rockies' Dom Nunez: On bench Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez is out of the lineup for Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Padres.

Nunez started the matinee and went 0-for-2 with a strikeout, so it's not much of a surprise to see him sitting out the nightcap. Elias Diaz will catch for Austin Gomber in Game 2.

May 10, 2021 01:56 AM
Rockies' Dom Nunez: Receives breather Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez is not in the lineup Sunday at St. Louis, Danielle Allentuck of The Denver Gazette reports.

Nunez went 1-for-5 with a double and three RBI Saturday and will take a seat Sunday after starting the previous three games. Elias Diaz will start behind the plate for the Rockies in the series finale.

May 5, 2021 01:00 PM
Rockies' Dom Nunez: Not starting Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez is out of the lineup for Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Giants, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Nunez went 1-for-3 with a run and two strikeouts during Game 1, and he unsurprisingly won't be starting both games of the twin bill. Elias Diaz will catch for Ryan Castellani during the nightcap.

Rockies' Dom Nunez: Day off Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rockies' Dom Nunez: Cranks grand slam Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez went 2-for-5 with a grand slam and an additional run scored in the 14-6 win over the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

Nunez went deep with the bases loaded off Matt Peacock in the eighth inning to extend the lead for Colorado. This was Nunez's fifth home run of the season. He is outperforming his catching teammate, Elias Diaz, who is batting just .103 with zero home runs and one RBI. Nunez has started 17 games versus Diaz's 10 starts.
