  • Rockies' Jordan Patterson: Dropped from 40-man roster

    Patterson was designated for assignment by the Rockies on Tuesday.

    Patterson was dropped from the team's 40-man roster in order to free up space for prospects who need to be protected from the Rule 5 draft. The 26-year-old spent all of the 2018 season with Triple-A Albuquerque -- his third season at the level -- hitting .271/.367/.525 with 26 homers in 118 games. He'll take a spin through waivers to determine where he lands next.

  • Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Protected from Rule 5 draft

    HIlliard was added to the 40-man roster by Colorado on Tuesday.

    Hilliard took the field for Double-A Hartford last year, and the Rockies have decided to protect him from the Rule 5 draft after he posted a .262/.327/.389 slash line with nine homers and 40 RBI over 121 games. Ryan Castellani, Justin Lawrence and Josh Fuentes were also added to the 40-man roster.

  • Rockies' Ryan Castellani: Promoted to 40-man roster

    Castellani had his contract selected from Double-A Hartford on Tuesday.

    This move protects Castellani from the Rule 5 draft. He spent the 2018 season repeating Double-A, struggling to a 5.49 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 6.1 K/9 across 26 starts (134.1 innings). Still, he's just 22 years old and will have time to prove himself as he presumably makes the jump to Triple-A in 2019.

  • Rockies' Josh Fuentes: Selected to 40-man roster

    Fuentes joined Colorado's 40-man roster Tuesday.

    Fuentes advanced to Triple-A Albuquerque in 2018, slashing .327/.354/.517 with 14 home runs and 95 RBI over 135 games. Given his evident potential, the Rockies have elected to protect him from the Rule 5 draft.

  • Rockies' Justin Lawrence: Protected by Rockies

    Lawrence had his contract purchased from High-A Lancaster on Tuesday, Jon Heyman of FancredSports.com reports.

    The Rockies opted to add Lawrence to their 40-man roster to protect him from the upcoming Rule 5 draft. The 23-year-old reliever spent all of 2018 with Lancaster, posting a 2.65 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 10.3 K/9 across 54.1 innings for the JetHawks. Lawrence could make his way to the majors in 2019 if he continues to impress.

  • Rockies' Brett Nicholas: Inks MiLB deal with Colorado

    Nicholas signed a minor-league contract with the Rockies on Sunday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

    The 30-year-old backstop spent all of last season in the Padres organization. He slashed .291/.353/.485 with 16 homers and 83 RBI at Triple-A El Paso but was unable to crack the big-league roster at any point. He has a .756 OPS in 110 MLB plate appearances in his career, though as things stand now, Nicholas figures to largely provide catching depth for the Rockies behind Chris Iannetta, Tony Wolters and Tom Murphy.

  • Rockies' Brendan Rodgers: Recovering from shoulder tightness

    Rodgers is recovering from shoulder tightness, which is why he was scratched from the Arizona Fall League roster, Tracy Ringolsby of InsideTheSeams.com reports. "Instead of trying to push it to get him ready for the fall league we decided it was best to allow him to rest and strengthen this offseason," said Zach Wilson, Rockies senior director-player development. "It's a minor issue but best to get him physically ready for 2019."

    The AFL would have been a good opportunity for Rodgers to rehab his prospect stock against less advanced pitching, as he struggled mightily (.232/.264/.290) after a late-season promotion to Triple-A. He was replaced on the AFL roster by Tyler Nevin. Rodgers should return to Triple-A at the start of the season while fellow prospect Garrett Hampson gets a crack at cementing himself as the Rockies' everyday second baseman.

  • Rockies' David Dahl: Projected starter for 2019

    With the Rockies turning down their club option on Gerardo Parra, which was expected, right now they only have Dahl and Charlie Blackmon as primary outfielders returning for 2019, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

    Clearly a lot can happen between now and Opening Day, as it did last year when the Rockies signed Carlos Gonzalez again late into the offseason, but Dahl was already claiming more playing time, in a prime spot in the order, over the second half of the season. He should finally get a full season of regular playing time, health permitting.

  • Rockies' Seung Hwan Oh: Expected to remain in MLB next season

    Oh is expected to remain with the Rockies next season, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

    Oh had made comments last week about returning to South Korea, but new reports suggest that he's likely to remain in the majors for at least one more season. It should be noted, however, that the updated reports come from the Rockies themselves and not from Oh's camp, so it's possible that this story isn't over yet.

  • Rockies' Seung Hwan Oh: Could return to South Korea in 2019

    Oh is considering a return to South Korea to play in the Korea Baseball Organization in 2019. "I feel like I want to return to the KBO while I still have the energy to help the team and pitch in front of home fans," the 36-year-old Oh said. "I can't make this decision alone. I'll have to speak with my agency about the next season." Oh cited fatigue from living in a foreign country as the main reason for this potential transition, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

    The Rockies traded for Oh in late July to help revamp their bullpen, and he wound up logging a 2.53 ERA and 1.03 WHIP with 24 strikeouts in 21.1 innings of relief. Since he went over 70 total appearances in 2018, Oh has a vesting club option of $2.5 million for next year.

  • Rockies' Jon Gray: Blames 2018 struggles on health

    Gray said his struggles this season were due to health issues, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports. "I wasn't really healthy," the right-hander said. "My (velocity) was down this year. I was down about 20 pounds."

    The 2018 campaign was a rollercoaster of a year for Gray. The right-hander began the season as the Rockies' Opening Day starter but was sent to the minors before the All-Star break due to his struggles (5.44 ERA across 18 first-half starts). Gray flashed his potential upon his return to the majors -- he posted a 2.59 ERA across his first seven starts back with the big club -- though he struggled down the stretch and was ultimately left off the team's playoff roster. While the 26-year-old believes his struggles were health-related, he was unsure when asked if he was battling an illness. "Maybe, I'm not sure," Gray stated. "My body kind of did a 180 (degree turn) this year and I'm not sure why. I want to get it back under control and get back to being strong." Gray plans on bulking up this offseason in an effort to turn things around next year, though only time will tell if his added muscle helps.
