by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

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.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez is out of the lineup Sunday against the Diamondbacks, Danielle Allentuck of The Denver Gazette reports.

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.

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

Nunez is not in the lineup for Friday's game against Arizona.

Nunez didn't start on Opening Day but has emerged as the Rockies' clear starting catcher. He's started 16 games behind the plate this season, while Elias Diaz, who starts Friday, has started 10 times.

Rockies' Dom Nunez: Retreats to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rockies' Dom Nunez: Reaches base three times in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez went 2-for-4 with a triple, a walk, two runs scored and an RBI in a 12-2 win over the Phillies on Sunday.

Nunez scored as part of a seven-run fourth inning and was back up to bat in the next frame in which he notched an RBI triple after Andrew McCutchen misjudged a sliding catch attempt and allowed the ball to roll all the way to the wall in left. He scored again later in the inning and ended up with his second multi-hit effort in the last four games. The 26-year-old is slashing .233/.298/.628 with four home runs, 10 RBI and eight runs scored but needs to continue to work on his discipline at the plate, as he's striking out 40.4 percent of the time through his first 14 games.

Rockies' Dom Nunez: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Phillies.

Nunez hits the bench after starting four straight games. He's hitting a lopsided-but-effective .211/.268/.605 through 41 plate appearances this season. Elias Diaz will take over behind the plate in his absence.

April 21, 2021 03:48 AM
Rockies' Dom Nunez: Belts fourth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and a walk Tuesday in a win over Houston.

Nunez drove a pitch 431 feet to right field in the seventh inning to give Colorado a 3-1 lead. The backstop may be emerging as the Rockies' preferred option behind the plate with three starts in their past four contests. He is hitting only .200 on the season but has clubbed four home runs and driven in seven.

April 17, 2021 08:12 PM
Rockies' Dom Nunez: On bench Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Mets.

Nunez started behind the plate in Game 1, going 1-for-3 with a triple, a run and an RBI. Elias Diaz will catch for German Marquez in Saturday's nightcap.

Rockies' Dom Nunez: Not starting series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez isn't starting Thursday's game against the Dodgers, Danielle Allentuck of The Denver Gazette reports.

Nunez went 0-for-3 with a walk and two strikeouts in Wednesday's loss to the Dodgers. Elias Diaz will start behind the dish for Thursday's series finale, batting sixth.

Rockies' Dom Nunez: Cranks three-run homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run during Thursday's win over the Diamondbacks.

The 26-year-old backstop added some insurance runs to Colorado's lead with a three-run blast against Merrill Kelly in the sixth inning to make it a 7-0 game. The long ball was the third of the year for Nunez, who's supposed to be the No. 2 catcher behind Elias Diaz, though the two have split the playing time nearly evenly thus far.

Rockies' Dom Nunez: Blasts first homer of year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 11-6 loss to the Dodgers.

The Rockies erupted for four homers in the seventh inning, including Nunez's blast, but couldn't get anything going the rest of the night. The 26-year-old is opening the season as the No. 2 catcher behind Elias Diaz, giving him some DFS appeal for home starts at Coors Field, but Nunez could push his way into a larger role if he hits well or Diaz struggles.

Rockies' Dom Nunez: Nabs Opening Day roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez was awarded a spot on the Rockies' Opening Day roster, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

Nunez will break camp with Colorado as the backup catcher behind Elias Diaz. The 26-year-old's lone MLB action came in 2019, when he slashed .179/.233/.410 over 43 plate appearances.

Rockies' Dom Nunez: Blasts two-run homer in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and one strikeout in Thursday's spring loss to the Cubs.

Nunez has been more patient at the plate to begin spring training, and he's had strong production as a result. "I feel great in the box right now," Nunez told Thomas Harding of MLB.com. "I'm not chasing offspeed pitches, which is the big thing -- if you don't chase it, then they're not usually going to throw it. That's kind of my whole idea." He blasted his first home run of the spring off Kyle Hendricks in the bottom of the second inning and has now gone 6-for-14 with two extra-base hits, three runs, three RBI and two strikeouts over his first six games of spring training.

Rockies' Dom Nunez: Triples in comeback win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez went 1-for-2 with a triple, one run and one strikeout in Wednesday's 10-7 spring win over the Athletics.

Nunez struck out in his first at-bat Wednesday, but he drove a fastball to right-center in the fifth inning to help spark a comeback victory over Oakland. The 26-year-old was never called up during the 2020 campaign but appears to be in line for a major-league role in 2021. "Nunez is going to be given a real opportunity to see what he can do on the big league level," manager Bud Black said during the offseason. He's gone 2-for-4 with one run over his first two Cactus League games this year.

Rockies' Dom Nunez: Makes initial taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez was included on the three-man taxi squad that will travel with the team for the first series at the Rangers.

Nunez was optioned by the Rockies on Wednesday, but he'll be one of the team's top options to fill an emergency need to begin the regular season. The Rockies have three catchers on their active roster, so his chances of joining the major-league roster could be a bit slim unless injuries occur or the trio struggles.

Rockies' Dom Nunez: Optioned to alternate camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez was optioned to the Rockies' alternate training site Wednesday.

Nunez was on the roster bubble when spring training was suspended, but he'll be left off the team's 30-man roster to begin the season after Drew Butera was awarded the third catcher spot Wednesday. Nunez made his major-league debut in 2019 but struggled over a small sample, hitting just .179/.233/.410 with two home runs and 17 strikeouts over 16 games.

Rockies' Dom Nunez: On roster bubble
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez was on the roster bubble prior to the shutdown, Kyle Newman and Jeff Bailey of The Denver Post report.

Tony Wolters' spot as the primary catcher appears to be safe, so Nunez was competing with Elias Diaz and Drew Butera for the backup spot. Nunez is on the 40-man roster while Diaz and Butera are on minor-league deals, but Nunez also has minor-league options remaining, and was outperformed statistically by Diaz and Butera this spring. Nunez said he has been working on his throwing and defensive footwork while lowering his leg kick at the plate. He hit .200 with a home run, six strikeouts and three walks in 15 spring at-bats.

Rockies' Dom Nunez: Leaves park in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Brewers in 13 innings.

Nunez's long ball cut the Rockies' deficit to one in the eighth inning before Pat Valaika sent the game to extras in the bottom of the ninth with a run-scoring single. Though his final hit of 2019 was a memorable one, Nunez delivered an underwhelming .179/.233/.410 slash line after joining the big club in mid-August and saw far less action than backstops Tony Wolters and Drew Butera down the stretch.
