Rockies' Carlos Estevez: Struggles in spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Estevez allowed five runs on seven hits and had eight strikeouts and zero walks over five innings prior to the suspension of spring training.

The 27-year-old had somewhat of a breakout campaign for the Rockies in 2019, posting a 3.75 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 81:23 K:BB with 11 holds in 71 appearances. According to Thomas Harding of, Estevez and Jairo Diaz are expected to play prominent bullpen roles for Colorado in front of Scott Oberg and closer Wade Davis this season.

Rockies' Carlos Estevez: Reaches deal with Rockies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Estevez and the Rockies agreed to terms on a one-year, $1.08 million deal Friday, avoiding arbitration, freelance baseball writer Robert Murray reports.

Estevez's solid 3.75 ERA in 72 innings last season looks even better considering he calls Coors Field home. He struck out 26.3 percent of opposing batters while walking 7.5 percent.

Rockies' Carlos Estevez: Tosses scoreless eighth inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Estevez worked around one walk to throw a scoreless eighth inning Wednesday against St. Louis. He struck out one batter and earned his ninth hold of the season.

Estevez was lifted early Tuesday with back spasms, but clearly it wasn't a major problem as the right-hander was right back on the hill a day later. Unfortunately for those who took a gamble on Estevez after Scott Oberg (blood clot) was placed on the IL, it doesn't seem like Estevez is in line for many save chances. Jairo Diaz has gotten all three saves for Colorado this month.

Rockies' Carlos Estevez: Battling back spasms
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Estevez was removed from Tuesday's game against the Cardinals with back spasms, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.

Estevez needed only nine pitches to record the final two outs of the eighth inning and would have returned for the final frame -- and the save opportunity -- were it not for the back spasms. It's unclear if the 26-year-old is expected to be available for Wednesday's contest.

Rockies' Carlos Estevez: Works seventh inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Estevez pitched the seventh inning in Wednesday's loss to the Red Sox, allowing one run on a solo homer.

Manager Bud Black said last week that Estevez and Jairo Diaz would be in the mix for saves after Scott Oberg was placed on the injured list with a blood clot in his arm. Estevez's usage since then suggests he's behind Diaz in the pecking order; Estevez pitched in the eighth inning Aug. 23 ahead of Diaz, in the sixth inning Aug. 25 and then in the eighth Monday. Diaz blew the save Monday but was credited with the win, and even after the blown save, Diaz still has a 2.61 ERA and 17:2 K:BB this month.

Rockies' Carlos Estevez: Expected to see save chances
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Bud Black said Monday that he's not ready to anoint a new closer, but he made it clear that Estevez and Jairo Diaz will be given chances to close out games over the remainder of the season, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

Wade Davis squandered a lead in the ninth inning Sunday after Scott Oberg (blood clot) was placed on the IL earlier that day, and it doesn't sound like Black will be turning back to Davis as his closer. Both Estevez and Diaz throw heat, averaging over 97 mph on their fastballs. Estevez's season-long ERA is significantly better than Diaz's, but the estimators are pretty similar and Diaz has been on an excellent run of late (2.16 ERA, 1.08 WHIP in his last seven outings), so it's not clear who will have the edge between the two.

Rockies' Carlos Estevez: Returns to action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Estevez (personal) worked around one hit and one walk to record a scoreless ninth inning in Sunday's win over the Padres. He struck out one batter.

After German Marquez went eight strong innings, Estevez pitched the final frame in an 8-3 Colorado victory. It was Estevez's first appearance back after he spent a week on the family medical leave list. Estevez is averaging nearly 98 mph on his fastball, and his 27.2 percent strikeout rate is tied for the best mark on the team. He'd have a case to step into the closer role if Scott Oberg were to lose the job.

Rockies' Carlos Estevez: Placed on leave
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rockies placed Estevez on the family emergency medical leave list Sunday, Thomas Harding of reports.

MLB rules dictate that Estevez will be inactive for at least three days, but no more than seven. The reliever will be replaced in the bullpen by Jesus Tinoco, who was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque in a corresponding move.

Rockies' Carlos Estevez: Remains in setup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scott Oberg, not Estevez, will be the Rockies' primary closer while Wade Davis (oblique) is on the injured list, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.

A case can be made that Estevez deserves the look more than Oberg. For starters, Estevez throws his fastball about three mph harder than Oberg on average, and the peripherals point to Estevez being the far better pitcher so far this season. However, Oberg has been able to overcome the poor peripherals and turn in strong results so far, so for now manager Bud Black will turn to Oberg and possibly Jake McGee, when the matchups call for a left-hander in the ninth.

Rockies' Carlos Estevez: Could see save chances
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Estevez could factor into the ninth-inning mix with closer Wade Davis (oblique) landing on the injured list Wednesday.

This is a tough one to call. The Rockies have an experienced righty in Seunghwan Oh and another candidate in Scott Oberg who currently has a 1.77 ERA and 1.18 WHIP. However, Oh is probably out of the conversation for now, having posted a 9.60 ERA in his first 15 innings. Things look far worse for Oberg under the hood; he has just 13 strikeouts in 20.1 total innings, and a 1:5 K:BB so far in the month of May. Meanwhile Estevez leads the team in holds with five, and his K-BB rate sits at a healthy 22.1 percent. Lefty Jake McGee could also see chances based on matchups.

Rockies' Carlos Estevez: Called up to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Estevez was called up by the Rockies on Tuesday, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.

Estevez is up to replace Jake McGee, who was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left knee sprain. He spent the entirety of 2018 in the minor leagues and owns a career 5.36 ERA after 87.1 innings in the two previous seasons.

Rockies' Carlos Estevez: Returns to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Estevez was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Saturday, Thomas Harding of reports.

Estevez performed well in spring training with a 1.08 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 13:5 K:BB over 8.1 innings, but was always facing long odds to make the roster. The 26-year-old missed the beginning of 2018 due to an oblique injury and spent the rest of the season at Albuquerque, where he struggled with a 6.35 ERA and 1.71 WHIP across 28.1 innings.

Rockies' Carlos Estevez: Activated, optioned
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rockies activated Estevez (elbow) from the 60-day disabled list Sunday and optioned him to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Colorado cleared a spot on the 40-man roster for Estevez by outrighting reliever Brooks Pounders to Triple-A. After being sidelined all season with an oblique injury followed by the left elbow strain, Estevez will have to prove his worth a little while longer at Albuquerque before rejoining the big-league bullpen.

Rockies' Carlos Estevez: Begins rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Estevez (elbow) was sent to Triple-A Albuquerque for a rehab assignment Sunday, Thomas Harding of reports.

Estevez missed the start of the season with an oblique injury and then was shut down in April after suffered an elbow strain while rehabbing. He appears to be nearing a return to action.

Rockies' Carlos Estevez: Tosses sim game Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Estevez (elbow) threw a simulated game Monday, Nick Groke of The Athletic Denver reports.

The Rockies are going to wait two days before reevaluating Estevez, and if everything checks out OK he could be cleared to begin a minor-league rehab assignment later in the week. The right-hander has been sidelined all season, so he'll likely need a full rehab assignment before rejoining the big-league bullpen.

Rockies' Carlos Estevez: Nearing return to throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Estevez (elbow) hopes to resume playing catch soon, Thomas Harding of reports.

The hard-throwing right-hander was placed on the 60-day disabled list in April due to a strained UCL, but it seems like he's recovering nicely from the injury. Estevez was recently in Denver with the team getting evaluated by the Rockies' trainers, and it doesn't seem like any bad news came from the visit. Given that he hasn't resumed playing catch yet, he still seems to be at least a few weeks away from a full return to action.

Rockies' Carlos Estevez: Moves to 60-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Estevez (elbow strain) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Monday.

His diagnosis has gone from bad to worse, as he was initially listed as being out with an oblique injury, but further tests have apparently revealed an elbow strain. He'll be unavailable to return until late May now. Harrison Musgrave will take his place on the 40-man roster for the time being.

Rockies' Carlos Estevez: Shows little control while rehabbing Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Estevez (oblique) threw 22 pitches in two-thirds of an inning in his most recent rehab appearance with Triple-A Albuquerque on Sunday.

He did manage to strike out one batter, but this was overall a lackluster appearance for the hard-throwing righty. Estevez only threw 10 of his 22 offerings for strikes and fell behind all but one of the hitters he faced. It seems like he's pretty healthy at this point, but the results may be the thing keeping him on a rehab assignment at this point.

Rockies' Carlos Estevez: Shines in first rehab appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Estevez (oblique) navigated a scoreless inning with Triple-A Albuquerque on Thursday, striking out one.

The right-hander looked sharp during the rehab outing, requiring just nine pitches to complete the frame and throwing seven of those offerings for strikes. Estevez appears to be nearing a return to the Rockies' bullpen, though he may make a couple more rehab appearances before being activated from the disabled list.

Rockies' Carlos Estevez: Nearing return to game action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Estevez (oblique) hopes to partake in simulated games this week, Thomas Harding of reports.

It seems like the right-hander is ramping up his activity at a good pace. The plan is for Estevez to embark on a minor-league rehab assignment shortly after the sim games, though no firm timetable for that has been announced yet.
