Senzatela signed a one-year, $3 million deal with the Rockies on Wednesday to avoid arbitration, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.
The right-hander came on strong for Colorado during the shortened season and had a 3.44 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 41:18 K:BB over 73.1 innings. Senzatela should enter spring training with a spot in the starting rotation.
Senzatela (5-3) allowed four runs on eight hits and four walks while striking out two over 4.1 innings as he was charged with the loss in Game 1 of Friday's doubleheader against the Diamondbacks.
Senzatela entered Friday's contest after posting quality starts in each of his last two outings, but he gave up a three-run home run in the bottom of the third inning before allowing another run in the fifth. Although the right-hander finished the season on a lackluster note, he posted a career-best 3.44 ERA and 1.19 WHIP over 73.1 innings during his 12 starts in 2020.
Senzatela (5-2) picked up the win Sunday against the Dodgers, allowing one run on three hits and two walks across 6.1 innings. He struck out three.
After allowing just one run in a complete game against Oakland in his last start, Senzatela was able to stymie yet another division leader Sunday. Though he fanned just three, the right-hander was able to keep Los Angeles off the board through six innings. He recorded an out to start the seventh, but he was pulled after allowing consecutive one-out walks. The 25-year-old was charged with a run when Yency Almonte allowed an RBI single to Edwin Rios. Sentazela will take a solid 3.13 ERA into his start against Arizona on Friday.
Senzatela (4-2) went the distance in Tuesday's win over the Athletics, allowing one run on six hits and a walk while striking out three.
Senzatela's only hiccup came in the second inning, when Tony Kemp's sacrifice fly scored Jake Lamb. The right-handed Senzatela threw 74 of his 109 pitches for strikes in his first major-league complete game. He lowered his ERA to 3.30 with a 1.15 WHIP and 34:12 K:BB across 62.2 innings this season. The 25-year-old's next start is expected to be Sunday at home versus the Dodgers.
Senzatela (3-2) allowed four earned runs on six hits and four walks while striking out two across five innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Padres.
Senzatela got off to a shaky start, allowing a hit to three of the first four batters he faced -- including a two-run homer. Things got better from there, though he lost his control when he came back out for the sixth inning as he walked two and also allowed a single and triple. That resulted in the additional runs against him, ruining his otherwise solid outing. Even after this effort, he's maintained a 3.69 ERA with a 33:11 K:BB across 53.2 frames for the season. Senzatela will take his next turn through the rotation Wednesday against the Athletics.
Senzatela took a no-decision during Friday's loss at Dodger Stadium, allowing two runs on seven hits while striking out three across 5.1 innings.
After giving up a solo home run to Max Muncy in the first inning, Senzatela held the Dodgers at bay until the sixth, when Corey Seager snuck in another run to tie the game with an RBI single. That would be the last damage of the night charged to Senzatela, though unfortunately the Rockies came up short in the end. The right-hander has now allowed seven homers this season, five of which have been against the Dodgers. Senzatela will carry a 3.33 ERA and 1.13 WHIP into a matchup at San Diego next week.
Senzatela didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's game between the Rockies and the Padres. He tossed seven scoreless innings, allowing seven hits and one walk while fanning three.
Senzatela was dominant, throwing 70 of his 101 pitches for strikes and limiting the Padres -- one of the best offenses in the NL -- to just eight baserunners. The bullpen prevented him from earning the win but, nonetheless, this was an impressive performance from the 25-year-old right-hander.
Senzatela (3-1) allowed six runs on seven hits and a walk over 5.1 innings Sunday, striking out one batter and taking the loss against the Dodgers.
Senzatela's ERA jumped from 2.90 to 3.96 after allowing four homers and six runs against the lethal Dodgers offense. A big chunk of the damage came in the fourth inning with a three-run shot by Enrique Hernandez. Prior to Sunday, Senzatela had allowed just two homers in 31 innings. He'll take the mound at home against the Padres on Friday.
Senzatela allowed three hits with six strikeouts and zero walks over eight scoreless innings during Tuesday's 11-inning loss to the Astros, and he didn't factor in the decision.
The 25-year-old and Zack Greinke essentially matched each other pitch-for-pitch Tuesday afternoon, as both hurlers gave up only three singles across eight shutout innings. Senzatela had a 6.71 ERA for the Rockies last season, but through five starts in 2020 he has a 2.90 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 24:5 K:BB over 31 innings. He'll look to keep things rolling on the road Sunday against the Dodgers.
Senzatela gave up five runs on nine hits and zero walks over six innings during Wednesday's 13-7 loss to the Diamondbacks. He had four strikeouts and didn't factor in the decision.
The 25-year-old allowed two earned runs or fewer in each of his first three starts, but he was unable to replicate that success versus Arizona. Senzatela has a 3.91 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 18:5 K:BB through 23 innings, and he lines up to pitch Tuesday at Houston.
Senzatela (3-0) picked up the win against the Mariners on Friday, allowing three runs (two earned) on five hits and a walk while striking out five across six innings.
Senzatela remained undefeated on the season with a strong outing against the Mariners. The right-hander allowed an RBI single to Mallex Smith in the second inning that registered as an unearned run due to a throwing error by Trevor Story. He then gave up his first home run of the season via a two-run shot to Austin Nola in the sixth. The 25-year-old now holds a sturdy 2.65 ERA and 1.18 WHIP over 17 innings of work. He'll look for his fourth win Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.
Senzatela (2-0) allowed one earned run on four hits and a walk while striking out six across six innings to earn the win Sunday against the Padres.
Senzatela allowed only two singles through five innings, thoroughly dominating the Padres. Things unraveled for him a bit in the sixth frame, however, as he allowed a leadoff triple followed by a double and a walk to account for his one earned run. Still, the outing was impressive for Senzatela, and he has now allowed only three earned runs across 11 innings to start the season. He's in line to draw his next start Friday at Seattle.
Senzatela (1-0) allowed two runs on six hits and three walks while striking out three over five innings in a win over the A's on Tuesday.
There was some talk in summer camp of Senzatela simplifying his delivery and impressing with sharper secondary stuff. He was not a completely new pitcher in his 2020 debut -- Senzatela only induced five swinging strikes on 86 pitches -- but a road win in Oakland qualifies as a step in the right direction after he had a 6.71 ERA last season. We'll see what Senzatela can do this weekend at home against the Padres.
Senzatela allowed three runs on two hits and one walk while striking out three over five innings as he earned the win in Wednesday's exhibition against the Rangers.
Showcasing his simplified delivery, Senzatela was sharp as he threw 80 pitches and didn't allow a baserunner until Danny Santana jammed a single in the fifth inning. Todd Frazier hit a three-run homer with one out in the fifth, but the right-hander was otherwise efficient. Senzatela shed 15 pounds over the offseason and will serve as the Rockies' fourth starter, putting him on track to make his season debut Tuesday in Oakland. He'll look to rebound from 2019, when he posted a 6.71 ERA and 5.5 K/9 over 25 starts with Colorado.
Senzatela gave up two runs and scattered seven hits while striking out two over 3.1 innings during his intrasquad start Friday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Senzatela looks in line to get his final tuneup of summer camp in Wednesday's exhibition versus the Rangers, which would seemingly put him on track to start the Rockies' fourth game of the regular season July 28 in Oakland. According to Kyle Newman of The Denver Post, Senzatela shed 15 pounds in the offseason and has shown a mid-90s fastball and sharper secondary offerings during spring training and summer camp, but the 25-year-old can probably be avoided outside of NL-only leagues until he delivers quality results in the games that count. Senzatela made 25 starts for the big club in 2019, posting a 6.71 ERA, 1.75 WHIP and 5.5 K/9.
Senzatela spent spring training working on his curveball after employing it more often over his last four starts last season, often to better results, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Until he started throwing his curveball more, Senzatela was lacking a good offspeed pitch, as his changeup had caused 'uncomfortable sensations' along the nerves from his ring finger to his elbow. He's hanging on to hold his rotation slot this spring, and that hold got a little stronger when Peter Lambert got hurt this spring.
Senzatela earned the win against the Brewers on Friday, allowing two runs on seven hits and a pair of walks while striking out six across six innings.
The right-hander turned in his ninth quality start with a surprisingly strong performance against a volatile Brewers lineup at Coors Field. His only damage of the night came from an RBI single by Ryan Braun in the first inning and a solo home run by Lorenzo Cain in the fourth. Otherwise, the 24-year-old reeled things to to finish off the season at .500 (11-11) with a 6.71 ERA and 1.75 WHIP.
Senzatela (10-11) suffered the loss against the Dodgers on Sunday, pitching four innings and giving up four runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out four.
Senzatela shut Los Angeles down for four innings before allowing his first run on a homer by opposing pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu leading off the fifth frame. That opened the floodgates for the Dodgers, as the following three batters reached to load the bases and chase Senzatela from the game. Jake McGee then came on in relief and allowed a grand slam to Cody Bellinger, tacking on three additional earned runs to Sentazela's ledger. The disappointing outing furthered the 24-year-old's disastrous second half in which he has posted an 11.13 ERA and 2.07 WHIP over eight starts. He'll again face a giant hurdle against ending the year on a positive note when he takes on the Brewers at Coors Field on Saturday.
Senzatela (10-10) picked up the win against the Mets on Monday, giving up four earned runs on eight hits over six innings, striking out four and walking one in the Rockies' 9-4 victory.
The right-hander served up a pair of long balls to Brandon Nimmo and Amed Rosario but he wound up missing a quality start by just one earned run and picking up his 10th win of the season to even up his record. He's gone six innings and bagged the win in each of his last two starts, but it's still been a struggle on the whole in 2019 for Senzatela, who is sporting a 6.83 ERA, 1.74 WHIP and an unimpressive 66:52 K:BB across 114.2 innings.
Senzatela (9-10) earned the win Wednesday after holding the Cardinals to one run on four hits and a pair of walks while striking out five over six innings.
Despite coming into the game allowing a .317 average at Coors Field, Senzatela flipped the narrative Wednesday, holding an opponent to just one run for the sixth time this season and first time since June 18. In that span, Senzatela's ERA rose from 5.09 to 6.87, as he surrendered 46 runs across his last nine starts. The 24-year-old will look for his 10th win during a Monday matchup against the Mets.
