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.

Rockies' Dom Nunez: Homers in MLB debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 9-3 loss to the Diamondbacks.

Nunez became the seventh player in franchise history to slug a home run in his major-league debut after leaving the yard in his final at-bat of the night in the eighth inning. The 24-year-old is out of the lineup for Wednesday's series finale but should fill in for top backstop Tony Wolters a couple times per week after replacing Chris Iannetta as Colorado's No. 2 catcher.

Rockies' Dom Nunez: Officially promoted
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez had his contract selected from Triple-A Albuquerque ahead of Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks, Jenny Cavnar of AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain reports.

As anticipated, Nunez will join the big-league roster after Colorado designated Chris Iannetta for assignment. Nunez is expected to slot in as the backup catcher behind Tony Wolters, but he'll likely see his fair share of opportunities throughout the final months of the season. Nunez has put together a .244/.362/.559 slash line with 17 homers and 42 RBI over 61 games this season at Triple-A.

Rockies' Dom Nunez: Getting first big-league callup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rockies plan to select Nunez's contract from Triple-A Albuquerque prior to Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.

The 24-year-old will move up to the big club for the first time in his career as a replacement for backup catcher Chris Iannetta, whose decline both as a defender and at the plate will cost him a spot on the 40-man roster. Tony Wolters remains locked in as Colorado's top backstop, but Nunez could carry some intrigue as a daily streaming option when he draws starts at Coors Field. Over 257 plate appearances in the Pacific Coast League this season, Nunez has slashed .244/.362/.559 with 32 extra-base hits and a 14.1 percent walk rate.

Rockies' Dom Nunez: Shipped back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez was reassigned to minor league camp Monday, Nick Groke of The Denver Post reports.

The 22-year-old found success in his limited time with the big league club, going 2-for-5 with a double and a run. However, Nunez hasn't played an inning above High-A yet, so he'll likely spend all of 2017 between High-A and Double-A even after the injury to Tom Murphy (forearm).

Rockies' Dom Nunez: Invited to Rockies camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez received an invitation to Rockies spring training Thursday.

Nunez performed decently with High-A Modesto last season, slashing .241/.321/.362 to go along with 10 home runs. However, the 22-year-old mostly likely projects as an eventual backup at the big league level. Considering that Nunez is still yet to play in Double-A, there is a strong chance he'll spend all of next season in the minors, especially since catchers often take longer to develop than many other positions.

Rockies' Dom Nunez: Mediocre season at High-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez, 21, is hitting .249/.331/.370 with nine home runs, 42 RBI and eight steals in 93 games for High-A Modesto.

Considered one of the better hitting prospects in the Colorado organization heading into this season, Nunez has had a rather down year in the hitter-friendly confines of the California League. His average is down, his strikeouts are up and he has not quite shown the same power as a season ago. Still, he has above-average plate discipline for his age, and at just 21, he still has plenty of time to hone his craft.

Rockies' Dom Nunez: Receives invitation to spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez received an invitation to spring training Thursday.

Nunez caught at Low-A Asheville last season, posting an .821 OPS thanks to 13 home runs. The invitation is nice, but he'll likely head back down to the minors after spring training concludes to develop more.
