Rockies' David Dahl: Career-high five RBI in win
Dahl went 2-for-4 with a home run and five RBI in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Giants.
The five RBI were a career high for the 25-year-old, with the big blow being a third-inning grand slam off Jeff Samardzija. Dahl has now gone yard three times in the last four games to give him 10 homers on the year, while pushing his slash line up to a robust .320/.369/.541.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Wade Davis: Nails down 11th save
Davis gave up a hit in a scoreless ninth inning Wednesday to record his 11th save of the season in a 6-3 win over the Giants.
It's been a shaky June for the veteran closer -- he now sports an 8.64 ERA and 6:5 K:BB through 8.1 innings on the month, having blown two of his six save chances -- but he seems to be righting the ship, reeling off three straight scoreless appearances. If he can stay healthy, Davis still has a reasonable shot at producing his fourth straight 25-save campaign, but anything more than that will require a very big second half.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' German Marquez: Grabs eighth win
Marquez (8-3) picked up the win in Wednesday's 6-3 victory over the Giants, allowing three runs (two earned) on seven hits and two walks over five innings while striking out two.
A high pitch count kept Marquez from a quality start -- he needed 98 pitches (64 strikes) to record his 15 outs -- but he still notched his fifth win in his last six decisions. The right-hander will take a 4.29 ERA and 113:26 K:BB through 115.1 innings into his next outing Tuesday, at home against the Astros.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Chi Chi Gonzalez: Earns another start
Manager Bud Black said Gonzalez will start Sunday against the Dodgers, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.
It sounds like Gonzalez will get an extended look in Colorado's starting rotation after holding his own during his season debut against the Giants on Tuesday, allowing three runs on six hits and four walks while striking out four in five innings. In 14 career starts, the right-hander owns a 4.76 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 39:41 K:BB in 75.2 innings,... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ian Desmond: Gets day off
Desmond is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Giants, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.
Desmond went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in his return to action Tuesday night, but he'll take a seat for Wednesday's matinee contest as the Rockies look to ease him back into action. In his absence, Colorado will go with an outfield consisting of Raimel Tapia, David Dahl and Charlie Blackmon from left to right.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ian Desmond: Homers in return to lineup
Desmond went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to San Francisco.
After missing a pair of games with a lower body injury, Desmond hit out of the two-spot Tuesday and responded by drilling a 382-blast to left field off Madison Bumgarner to plate the Rockies' first run in the fourth inning. After struggling out of the gates this season, Desmond has turned things around since the end of April, hitting .336 (47-for-140) with eight homers and 28 RBI in May and June combined....

Rockies' Chi Chi Gonzalez: Goes five innings in comeback start
Gonzalez (0-1) took the loss against the Giants on Tuesday, tossing five innings and giving up three runs on six hits and four walks while striking out four.
In his first major-league start since 2016, Gonzalez looked to be fully recovered from the Tommy John surgery that wiped out most of his 2017 and 2018 seasons. He began the night by striking out the side in order and threw 94 total pitches in five innings, allowing only one extra-base hit. Unfortunately, the control issues that dogged Gonzalez prior to his surgery reared their head again Tuesday; he issued four free passes in the start and has now walked 45 batters in 82.1 career major-league innings. If he sticks in the rotation, he will next take the mound for a home matchup against the Dodgers on Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Roberto Ramos: Mashes grand slam in Triple-A
Ramos went 2-for-5 with a grand slam for Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday.
Ramos has been raking in the Pacific Coast League, as this sixth-inning grand slam marked his 17th long ball of the season to go along with an impressive .300/.393/.583 slash line through 270 at-bats. He's also driven in 62 runs and laced 14 doubles. This is the 24-year-old's first stint above Double-A in his six-season minor-league career, so he's certainly doing a good job with the opportunity to this point.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Seunghwan Oh: Throws bullpen session
Oh (abdomen) threw a bullpen session Tuesday, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.
Oh hasn't pitched since May 30, but he seems to be trending in the right direction, as he tossed this high-intensity, 36-pitch session and didn't come through with any setbacks. Per Newman, Oh said the next step in his rehab will be a simulated game back at Coors Field. The 36-year-old right-hander had been struggling this season, with 19 earned runs in 18.1 innings before he hit the injured list.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Tony Wolters: Not in lineup
Wolters is not starting Tuesday against the Giants, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.
Wolters started nine of the last 12 games prior to Tuesday's contest. Chris Iannetta will get the start behind the plate in his absence.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Daniel Murphy: Sits against southpaw
Murphy is not starting Tuesday against lefty Madison Bumgarner and the Giants, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.
Murphy started against the last two lefties the Rockies faced but will get a rest on this occasion. Mark Reynolds gets the start at first base.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Brendan Rodgers: Placed on injured list
Rodgers was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a right shoulder impingement, retroactive to June 24.
According to Kyle Newman of The Denver Post, the highly-touted rookie said he first felt the shoulder discomfort after a throw to first base in Colorado's game against the Dodgers on Saturday, and it's been impacting his ability to get the proper backspin on his throws, so he'll head to the 10-day IL to recover. Ryan McMahon will continue on at second base, while Trevor Story (thumb) could be back this weekend.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Chi Chi Gonzalez: Contract selected ahead of start
Gonzalez had his contract selected from Triple-A Albuquerque by the Rockies on Tuesday.
Gonzalez will start Tuesday's game at San Francisco, which will be his first major-league appearance since 2016. The 27-year-old has a 5.66 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 69:33 K:BB over 76.1 innings with the Isotopes this season. Gonzalez's status in the starting rotation beyond Tuesday is uncertain.... See More ...

Rockies' Ian Desmond: Back in action
Desmond is back in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Giants after missing the last two games with a lower-body issue, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.
The exact nature of the injury remains unclear, but it evidently wasn't serious enough to send Desmond to the injured list. He'll bat second and play center field Tuesday.... See More ... See Less
