Colorado Rockies
  • Lyles looks to hold up his end of bargain vs. Marlins

    They Marlins took three out of four from Colorado to begin the 2014 campaign, and they won the opener of this weekend's series at Coors Field. Rockies manager Walt Weiss is impressed with what he's seen, especially from Miami's young pitchers. One of those, Tom Koehler, gets the call Saturday opposite struggling hurler Jordan Lyles.

  • Command woes wreck Rox chances in loss to Fish

    Reliever Brooks Brown offered the Rockies hope in the fifth inning, when he forced a double-play grounder to hold the Marlins at two runs and keep the deficit at four. But Brown's shining moment of command was rarely repeated the rest of the night. Six Rockies pitchers gave up 16 hits -- including Marcell Ozuna's grand slam in a six-run ninth -- and nine walks in a 13-5 loss to the Marlins at Coors Field in front of 30,674.

  • Hamstring still swollen, but Cuddyer says no DL

    Rockies right fielder Michael Cuddyer had hoped to return Friday against the Marlins. One glimpse at the bruising and swelling that remained in his left hamstring drained that hope.

  • Parker powers Colorado Springs to victory

    Right fielder Kyle Parker, the Rockies' No. 8 prospect, collected a season-high four hits and homered twice on Thursday, helping Triple-A Colorado Springs defeat Albuquerque, 9-8.

  • Fastball command helping Ottavino find groove

    Adam Ottavino's slider has long been known to make a grown man cry. And with his fastball back to consistently touching 97 mph this month, scouts are now jumping back aboard the right-hander's bandwagon as a future closer.

  • Changeup creates Coors advantage for De La Rosa

    Rockies left-hander Jorge De La Rosa's brown eyes burn with intensity. The scowl bubbles to the surface at times, like Wednesday night in the first inning when plate umpire Jeff Nelson called a ball on what De La Rosa thought was a good pitch to the Royals' Billy Butler. Often, the batter buys into the intensity and his mind begins to expect the 92-95 mph fastball De La Rosa is capable of throwing.

  • Rockies lose challenge in late innings

    Rockies manager Walt Weiss took a shot at getting his team a rally out of a replay challenge in the eighth inning Wednesday night against the Royals, but it was not to be.

  • McBride's grand slam lifts De La Rosa to 13th win

    On Wednesday night, the deliberate Jorge De La Rosa kept the game close until Matt McBride launched his first career grand slam, in the sixth inning, and the Rockies ended up cooling off the sizzling Royals, 5-2, in front of 28,834.

  • McBride returns to starting lineup in grand fashion

    The Rockies' Matt McBride rounded the bases with enthusiasm -- and without incident -- Wednesday night. McBride, whose contract the Rockies purchased from Triple-A Colorado Springs on Tuesday, celebrated his first start Wednesday by clubbing a sixth-inning grand slam off Royals starter Danny Duffy.

  • Bergman will get start against Miami

    Rockies right-handed starting pitcher Christian Bergman will have a chance Sunday to continue what has been an eye-opening season. Bergman will start against the Marlins at Coors Field.

  • Weiss asks Cuddyer to protect himself

    Hustle is one of the attributes that make Michael Cuddyer one of the favorites for Rockies fans and teammates, but manager Walt Weiss has talked to Cuddyer about keeping some of the grit under control.

  • Rockies unravel in late innings vs. red-hot Royals

    The American League Central-leading Royals got their 22nd victory in the last 27 games with a crushing 7-4 win over the Rockies at Coors Field on Tuesday night.

  • Rockies win challenge on steal of third

    Rockies manager Walt Weiss challenged Nori Aoki's apparent steal of third and umpires quickly overturned third-base umpire Laz Diaz's safe call.

  • McBride promoted, Flande optioned to Triple-A

    The Rockies purchased the contract of first baseman-outfielder Matt McBride from Triple-A Colorado Springs for Tuesday night's game against the Royals, optioned left-hander Yohan Flande to Colorado Springs, and moved shortstop Troy Tulowitzki (left hip surgery) to the 60-day disabled list.

  • Betancourt may see Major League action

    Rafael Betancourt, 39, who was with the Rockies 2009-13 with most of that time as the closer, signed a Minor League deal this summer. He made 14 appearances at Rookie Ball Grand Junction (1-0, 2.03 ERA), before making scoreless appearances for Colorado Springs Sunday and Monday against Fresno.

  • Cuddyer scratched with sore hamstring

    Michael Cuddyer was scratched from the Rockies' lineup Tuesday against the Royals because of hamstring soreness. Drew Stubbs took his place in the order. Manager Walt Weiss said Cuddyer was available to pinch-hit.

  • CarGo has surgery, might not be ready by spring

    Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez had the middle third of the patella tendon repaired and a bursa sac removed in a surgery on Monday. Head athletic trainer Keith Dugger cautioned that it won't be known for months if Gonzalez will be healthy enough to begin Spring Training on time.

  • Dickerson considers Morneau his hitting mentor

    If Corey Dickerson stays hot and healthy, however, he has a chance to battle with mentor and teammate Justin Morneau -- at least average-wise.

  • McKenry a stabilizing force behind the plate

    Catcher Michael McKenry isn't just the Rockies' resident psychologist in shin guards. He's also an expert on what lost seasons can mean in the long run from his time with the Pirates.

  • Dickerson earns first NL Player of Week honor

    Corey Dickerson became the fourth Rockies player this season to be named the National League Player of the Week after leading the Majors in RBIs and total bases.
