Rockies' Austin Gomber: Earns eighth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gomber (8-5) secured the win over the Angels on Tuesday, pitching six innings and allowing two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out seven.

The southpaw continued his strong first campaign with Colorado, notching his sixth quality start in his past nine outings. The only runs he allowed in the contest came on yet another homer off the bat of Shohei Ohtani. Gomber lowered his ERA to 3.69 with the effective appearance while picking up his fifth win his past six starts. His next outing is tentatively slated to come at San Diego on Sunday.

Rockies' Austin Gomber: Limits damage in seventh win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gomber (7-5) picked up the win in Wednesday's 6-3 victory over the Mariners, allowing three runs on three hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out three.

Making his first start since June 19 after he dealt with some forearm tightness, Gomber delivered his ninth quality start of the season, but things could have been much worse for the lefty as all three hits he gave up left Coors Field for solo shots. He's served up multiple homers four times in 16 starts this season, but remarkably this was the first such performance at home for the 27-year-old. Gomber will carry a 3.74 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 79:24 K:BB through 84.1 innings into his next outing.

Rockies' Austin Gomber: Activated prior to start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gomber (forearm) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Wednesday's start against the Mariners.

Gomber had been on the injured list for just over a month due to right forearm tightness, but he tossed 62 pitches during his lone rehab outing at Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday and allowed three runs on five hits and no walks while striking out four in four innings. It's not yet clear whether the southpaw could be on a pitch count in Wednesday's series finale, but he should be available going forward.

Rockies' Austin Gomber: Set to rejoin rotation Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gomber (forearm) will be activated from the 10-day injured list to start Wednesday's game against the Mariners, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

The lefty said he felt ready to be activated after tossing 62 pitches during a rehab outing with Triple-A Albuquerque last Friday. He will indeed make his first start Wednesday since suffering the forearm injury June 19, and somewhat surprisingly, he won't be on a strict pitch count. Gomber had been enjoying a spectacular stretch prior to landing on the IL, posting a 1.62 ERA, 0.81 WHIP and 42:3 K:BB in his past eight starts.

Rockies' Austin Gomber: Feels ready to rejoin rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gomber (forearm) said Saturday that he feels ready to rejoin the Rockies' rotation even if he's not fully stretched out during his first start back, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. Gomber tossed 62 pitches while allowing three runs on five hits across four innings during his rehab start with Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday.

Gomber will likely be limited to 70-85 pitches in his next outing, whether that comes with the big club or in another rehab outing. The southpaw said he feels "ready to pitch (in the majors) again," but the Rockies have not yet determined where he'll make his next outing. Gomber was pitching very well prior to landing on the IL with forearm tightness June 20, posting a 1.62 ERA and 42:3 K:BB across his past eight starts. If the club does indeed activate him for his next start, he would likely take the ball at some point next weekend against the Dodgers.

Rockies' Austin Gomber: Begins rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gomber (forearm) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Gomber threw a two-inning simulated game prior to the All-Star break and is expected to toss 60 pitches across four innings in his rehab start Friday. The southpaw has been sidelined since June 19 due to forearm tightness, but he's been able to build up recently and could be nearing a return to the major-league roster.

July 10, 2021 09:28 PM
Rockies' Austin Gomber: Throws two-inning sim game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Bud Black said that Gomber (forearm) threw around 35 pitches during a two-inning simulated game Saturday, Daniel Guerrero of MLB.com reports. The left-hander will throw a side session on Wednesday and could make a rehab start as soon as Friday.

Saturday's simulated game marks a big step for Gomber in his return from forearm tightness. It's not clear how many starts Gomber will require in the minors, but if he is indeed able to make his first rehab start next weekend, he should have a solid chance of rejoining the Rockies' rotation by the end of July. Gomber was pitching exceptionally prior to suffering the injury June 19, allowing just three earned runs across 21 innings dating back to June 3.

Rockies' Austin Gomber: Throws bullpen Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gomber (forearm) threw a bullpen session Thursday, Danielle Allentuck of The Denver Gazette reports.

Gomber felt good after his bullpen Thursday, and he's expected to have another bullpen session in the coming days before beginning a rehab assignment. The southpaw has been on the injured list since June 20 due to forearm tightness, but he could return sometime around the All-Star break if he can remain on track in his recovery.

Rockies' Austin Gomber: Won't return when first eligible
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gomber (forearm) played catch Friday and will throw a side session in the coming days before likely going on a minor-league rehab assignment, Danielle Allentuck of The Denver Gazette reports.

Gomber exited last Saturday's start with forearm tightness. The southpaw appears to have avoided a serious injury, but manager Bud Black noted that he's "still a ways away from a start." The skipper's words indicate that Gomber won't be activated from the injured list June 30 when he first becomes eligible. The 27-year-old, who posted a 1.62 ERA and 0.81 WHIP across eight starts prior to the injury, will likely need a rehab start before being activated. With that in mind, he figures to be in line for an early-to-mid July return to the Colorado rotation, assuming no setbacks in his recovery.

Rockies' Austin Gomber: Moves to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rockies placed Gomber (forearm) on the 10-day injured list Sunday.

Colorado is still classifying the injury that forced Gomber out of Saturday's game against the Brewers as right forearm tightness, but it's possible he'll be sent in for an MRI as the Rockies look to assess whether he's dealing with a strain. In any case, Gomber will be on the shelf for at least the new week and a half. The timing of the injury is unfortunate for Gomber, who had emerged as the Rockies' most reliable starter over the past five weeks. Before he exited Saturday's outing after two innings, Gomber posted a 1.28 ERA, 0.76 WHIP and 8.7 K/9 over his preceding seven starts.

Rockies' Austin Gomber: Club optimistic following exit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Bud Black said the forearm tightness that forced Gomber to leave his Saturday start against the Brewers showed up more in the thick of the muscle as opposed to closer to the joint, which the club considers a good sign as of now, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.

The Rockies will continue to evaluate the left-hander, but it sounds like the team is optimistic that he's avoided the worst-case scenario based on Black's initial update. Gomber can be considered questionable to make his start in Milwaukee next weekend, with further updates likely to come on the 27-year-old in the coming days.

Rockies' Austin Gomber: Dealing with forearm tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gomber exited Saturday's start against the Brewers as a precautionary measure due to left forearm tightness.

The reason for Gomber's early departure was initially a mystery. The southpaw allowed two runs on four hits during two innings before exiting. He'll be further evaluated before Colorado determines if he'll be able to make his start.

June 20, 2021 01:16 PM
Rockies' Austin Gomber: Exits start early
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gomber left Saturday's start against the Brewers after just two innings for an undisclosed reason, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. He allowed two runs on four hits before departing.

No details have been revealed at this point explaining why Gomber left early, though Colorado will likely provide an update by the end of the night Saturday. Gomber entered Saturday with a solid 3.54 ERA and 1.05 WHIP, so the Rockies will certainly be crossing their fingers that the issue is minor.

Rockies' Austin Gomber: Earns third straight win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gomber (6-5) yielded three hits over eight shutout innings Monday, striking out four and earning a win over the Padres.

Gomber rolled through San Diego's lineup with ease Monday, allowing just two singles and a double while only one Padre reached scoring position. It was his seventh consecutive start giving up two or fewer runs and he's earned the win in four of his last five. The 6-foot-5 southpaw lowered his season ERA to 3.54 alongside a 75:23 K:BB. Gomber is projected to face Milwaukee at home this weekend where he'll look for a fourth straight win.

Rockies' Austin Gomber: Earns fifth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gomber (5-5) allowed one earned run on five hits and no walks while striking out five across five innings to earn the win Wednesday against the Marlins.

Gomber's lone run allowed came in the fifth inning, when he surrendered a pair of singles. He was strong otherwise, primarily based on his ability to keep the ball on the ground. Gomber has now allowed two or fewer earned runs in each of his last six starts, and he has worked at least five innings in all but one of those outings. For the season, he now has a 3.95 ERA with a 71:23 K:BB across 68.1 frames.

Rockies' Austin Gomber: Fires six shutout frames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gomber (4-5) picked up the win Thursday after holding the Rangers scoreless across six innings. He allowed three hits and no walks while striking out six.

It was a gem of an outing for Gomber, who blanked his opponent for just the second time this year and did not issue any free passes for the third time. The left-hander seems to be figuring things out at hitter-happy Coors Field. He's also found success in his recent outings, scattering five runs over his last five starts to lower his ERA to 4.12 and WHIP to 1.14. Gomber's next projected start lines up for a favorable road matchup Wednesday at Miami.

Rockies' Austin Gomber: Flips spots with Jon Gray
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gomber is now scheduled to make his next start Thursday at home against the Rangers, Danielle Allentuck of The Denver Gazette reports.

Earlier in the week, Jon Gray was listed as the Rockies' probable starter for Thursday's series finale, but manager Bud Black ultimately elected to push the right-hander back a day in the pitching schedule. He'll now take the hill Friday against the Athletics at Coors Field, allowing Gomber to get the nod Thursday. Both Gomber and Gray made starts in the May 29 doubleheader with the Pirates, so the late switch in the pitching schedule won't affect the other members of the rotation.

Rockies' Austin Gomber: Gives up two homers Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gomber (3-5) was tagged with the loss Saturday against the Pirates after allowing three runs (two earned) on five hits and a walk while fanning five across four innings.

Gomber gave up two homers -- to Adam Frazier in the first and Ka'ai Tom in the fourth -- and didn't have enough run support to avoid the loss. Gomber has given up two or fewer earned runs in each of his last four appearances, though, and he owns a 4.55 ERA on the season. His next scheduled start will come next week at home against the Athletics.

Rockies' Austin Gomber: Fans eight in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gomber (3-4) picked up the win Monday, allowing two runs on four hits over eight innings in a 3-2 victory over the Mets. He struck out eight without walking a batter.

The southpaw did serve up two solo shots, but otherwise Gomber took care of an undermanned Mets lineup, tossing 70 of 103 pitches for strikes. He's delivered two straight quality starts and six on the season, and he'll carry a 4.56 ERA and 55:22 K:BB through 53.1 innings into his next outing.

Rockies' Austin Gomber: No-decision despite strong start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gomber hurled six innings against San Diego on Tuesday, allowing one run on five hits and one walk while striking out seven. He did not factor in the decision.

The left-hander registered his second straight strong start and has allowed only one earned run over his past 11.1 innings. The lone run scored against Gomber on Tuesday came on a groundout in the second inning. He tied his season high with seven punchouts, induced 15 swinging strikes and lowered his ERA to 4.96 on the campaign. Gomber's next start is tentatively scheduled for Monday in New York against the Mets.
