  • Rockies' Nolan Jones: Scratched from lineup

    Jones was scratched from the Rockies' lineup ahead of Friday's game versus the Mets.

    The Rockies haven't yet provided a reason for Jones' removal from Friday's starting nine, but an explanation should be offered shortly. In the meantime, Sam Hilliard will step in to cover left field.

  • Rockies' Charlie Blackmon: In lineup Friday

    Blackmon (hamstring) is the DH and batting leadoff Friday against the Mets.

    Blackmon has been nursing soreness in his right hamstring stemming from a sliding catch he made Monday. After spending three straight games on the bench, the 37-year-old is back in the starting nine Friday. Blackmon is slashing .256/.325/.402 with four homers and five stolen bases over 280 plate appearances.

  • Rockies' Austin Gomber: Saddled with sixth loss

    Gomber (2-6) took the loss Thursday, allowing four runs on seven hits and one walk over five innings against the Reds. He struck out five.

    Each of the four runs Gomber allowed came via the long ball, with Tyler Stephenson tagging him for a three-run dinger in the third and Santiago Espinal following up with a solo blast in the fourth. It was the fifth time in 10 road starts that Gomber has allowed at least four earned runs. Surprisingly, the left-hander has fared much worse on the road despite playing his home games at Coors Field, posting a 5.61 ERA and 1.43 WHIP over 51.1 innings away from home as opposed to a 3.54 ERA and 1.18 WHIP over 48.1 frames in the high altitude.

  • Rockies' Dakota Hudson: Unclaimed and outrighted

    Hudson cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Albuquerque on Thursday.

    The Rockies designated Hudson for assignment Sunday after the right hander struggled with a 5.84 ERA and 1.64 WHIP across 17 starts. The 29-year-old had a 3.17 ERA in his first three seasons before needing Tommy John surgery. Since returning from the elbow procedure in late 2021, he has not been the same with a 4.90 ERA.

  • Rockies' Elias Diaz: Receiving afternoon off

    Diaz is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Reds.

    Diaz will receive a breather for Thursday's day game after he went 2-for-4 with an RBI while catching all nine innings of the Rockies' 6-5 win Wednesday night. Hunter Goodman will handle the catching duties for Colorado.

  • Rockies' Charlie Blackmon: Out again due to hamstring issue

    Blackmon is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Reds due to a slight right hamstring injury, MLB.com reports.

    Manager Bud Black said that Blackmon "tweaked" his hamstring while making a sliding catch during Monday's 6-0 loss to the Reds. The lefty-hitting Blackmon received a planned day off Tuesday while the Reds sent southpaw Nick Lodolo to the mound, but the 38-year-old's continued absences from the lineup against right-handed starters Frankie Montas and Hunter Greene on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively, signals that Blackmon is still being slowed by the injury. Blackmon had been available for pinch-hitting duties in Wednesday's 6-5 win but went unused, so he could once again be a candidate to come off the bench Thursday.

  • Rockies' Sam Hilliard: Surprising source of power

    Hilliard went 2-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI in Wednesday's 6-5 win over the Reds.

    Hilliard's playing time has been limited since the Rockies selected his contract from Triple-A Albuquerque on June 21. He got the start in center field Wednesday and delivered a big game from the bottom of the order, hitting his first two homers of the season. The outfielder is 4-for-15 (.267) with two stolen bases and six runs scored over 18 plate appearances this season. At best, Hilliard is a fourth or fifth outfielder for the Rockies, especially since the team already has a trio of left-handed-hitting outfielders ahead of him on the depth chart.

  • Rockies' Jalen Beeks: Shaky in save

    Beeks allowed two runs on three hits over one inning to earn the save in Wednesday's 6-5 win over the Reds.

    Victor Vodnik gave up a solo home run to lead off the ninth inning, creating a save situation. Beeks entered the contest and had trouble getting things under control, but he ultimately had enough runway to work with. Over his last seven appearances, Beeks has given up nine runs (eight earned) with a 5:1 K:BB over 7.2 innings, converting three of his five save chances in that span. He's at nine saves, five holds and six blown saves this season while pitching to a 4.40 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 34:17 K:BB through 45 innings overall. With a weak bullpen and a bottom-five record in the majors, save chances are likely to be limited for Colorado, and the team's committee approach makes it tough to roster any of its high-leverage options.

  • Rockies' Kyle Freeland: Earns first win of 2024

    Freeland (1-3) allowed two runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out nine over 6.2 innings to earn the win Wednesday over the Reds.

    Freeland has looked much stronger since returning from a left elbow strain that sidelined him for over two months. He's logged four straight quality starts, and Wednesday saw him dial up a season-high nine strikeouts. His rough start to the year is still having a significant impact on his season-long numbers -- 6.00 ERA and 1.62 WHIP -- but he's posted a 30:13 K:BB through 42 innings over eight starts. With his first win of the year finally secured, Freeland has some momentum heading into the second half.

  • Rockies' Jake Bird: Activated, optioned to Triple-A

    The Rockies reinstated Bird (groin) from the 15-day injured list Wednesday and optioned him to Triple-A Albuquerque.

    Bird has been on the injured list since June 26 due to a right groin strain. He's since thrown one rehab inning in Triple-A, surrendering three hits but allowing none to score, and he'll remain with the Isotopes now that he's fully recovered. The 28-year-old righty owns a 6.26 ERA and 1.87 WHIP in 23 MLB innings, so he'll likely need to show consistent success in the minors before he's invited back into the Rockies' bullpen.

  • Rockies' Charlie Blackmon: Out against right-hander

    Blackmon is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game in Cincinnati.

    The lefty-hitting Blackmon sat out Tuesday's 12-6 loss with a lefty (Nick Lodolo) on the mound, but it's a bit more surprising that he's on the bench again Wednesday while right-hander Frankie Montas takes the hill for Cincinnati. The Rockies will give Brenton Doyle a start at designated hitter in Blackmon's stead while Sam Hilliard patrols center field.

  • Rockies' Michael Toglia: Hitting for power

    Toglia went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run Tuesday against the Reds.

    Toglia continued his surge in power, as he's delivered seven home runs across his last 23 games. He's also tacked on 15 RBI and 13 runs scored in that span, though he's struck out at a 28.7-percent clip and is hitting just .207. Despite the mixed results, Toglia has started 31 straight games and is locked into playing time at first base.

  • Rockies' Brenton Doyle: Goes yard twice in loss

    Doyle went 3-for-4 with walk, a double and two solo home runs in Tuesday's 12-6 loss to the Reds.

    The 26-year-old has been an absolute beast since slumping to a .223/.245/.298 slash line in June. Through eight games in July, Doyle has five multi-hit performances, five doubles, six homers and 11 RBI while batting .556 (15-for-27). The surge has boosted his OPS on the season to .813, and with 13 homers and 20 steals through 87 games, Doyle has a shot at becoming the first Rockie to post a 30-30 season since Hall of Famer Larry Walker accomplished the feat in 1997.

  • Rockies' Cal Quantrill: Hit hard by Cincy

    Quantrill (6-7) took the loss Tuesday as the Rockies fell 12-6 to the Reds, giving up five runs on four hits and a walk over two innings. He struck out four.

    Three of the four hits off the right-hander went for extra bases, including homers by Tyler Stephenson and Will Benson in the second inning. Quantrill has been taken deep five times in his last two road starts, so even being away from Coors Field isn't offering much of a respite for him. Over his last five outings he's saddled with a 6.94 ERA, 1.67 WHIP and 22:9 K:BB through 23.1 innings. Quantrill will try to turn things around in his last start before the All-Star break, which is scheduled to come on the road against the Mets this weekend.

  • Rockies' Jake Bird: Cleared for rehab assignment

    Bird (groin) was sent to Triple-A Albuquerque on Tuesday to begin a rehab assignment.

    Bird has been out since late June with a groin strain, but he resumed throwing a few days ago and is now ready to test things out in a game setting. The reliever shouldn't need many rehab appearances since he hasn't missed much time, but with the All-Star break looming the Rockies could choose to hold him out until the second half.
