  • Weiss optimistic Cuddyer can avoid DL

    Rockies outfielder-first baseman Michael Cuddyer did not start Friday night against the Phillies, and manager Walt Weiss said hopes Cuddyer's left hamstring cramp will not require him to go to the 15-day disabled list.

  • Chacin to up workload in next rehab start

    Rockies right-hander Jhoulys Chacin's rehab from a shoulder injury that he suffered at the start of Spring Training should reach a new gear when he starts for Class A Advanced Modesto at Lake Elsinore on Saturday in an injury rehab start.

    Michael Cuddyer said the lower left hamstring cramp that caused him to leave in the seventh inning of Thursday afternoon's 3-1 victory over the Padres will not force him to the disabled list.

  • Rockies strike late to make winner of Morales

    Franklin Morales went six strong innings and the Rockies came alive in the seventh in a 3-1 win over the Padres on Thursday at Petco Park.

  • Dickerson aims to take advantage of opportunity

    When Corey Dickerson is in the Rockies' batting order, it's in a prominent place. Dickerson has been mostly absent, though, due to the hot start of Charlie Blackmon, as both are left-handed-hitting center fielders.

  • Scuffling CarGo given breather in finale

    With a .138 average against Padres starter Ian Kennedy, Carlos Gonzalez wasn't in the Rockies' starting lineup on Thursday.

    The Rockies are seeing results from reliever Chad Bettis, a talented right-hander who could end up playing a big part in the late innings for the club.

  • Bullpen still coming together in early going

    Rockies closer LaTroy Hawkins notes that the early days of a season can be difficult for relievers. They've had a chance to work in Spring Training, but the innings aren't enough, or intense enough, to truly prepare.

  • Tulo's stellar defense invaluable for Rockies

    During the second inning Tuesday night, shortstop Troy Tulowitzki completed a pair of dazzling defensive plays against the Padres, demonstrating that keeping him healthy is of utmost importance for the Rockies.

  • LeMahieu coming through in clutch situations

    Rockies second baseman DJ LeMahieu has become a weapon in run-scoring situations. Entering Wednesday night, he was batting .538 (7-for-16) with two doubles with runners in scoring position.

  • Pacheco's pairing with De La Rosa not intentional

    Rockies manager Walt Weiss said he hasn't made Jordan Pacheco the personal catcher for left-hander Jorge De La Rosa, even if it looks that way.

  • De La Rosa makes strides without much help

    Wednesday night wasn't an ideal outing for Rockies left-hander Jorge De La Rosa, but he did show improvement in a six-inning quality start, dropping a duel with the Padres, 4-2.

  • Chacin to continue rehab work at Class A

    Right-hander Jhoulys Chacin, who is building strength from a shoulder strain, will throw his second injury rehab start with Class A Modesto on Friday, Rockies trainer Keith Dugger said.

  • Nicasio strong after first, bullpen follows his lead

    Starting pitcher Juan Nicasio and a nail-biting bullpen effort made a one-run lead hold up as the Rockies beat the Padres, 3-2, at Petco Park on Tuesday night.

  • Weiss reflects on Jackie, game's diversity

    The Majors on Tuesday celebrated Jackie Robinson Day, which meant it was a time to remember Robinson breaking the color barrier in 1947. But it was also an opportunity to reflect on the dwindling number of African-American players in the game.

  • Cuddyer starts at first base night after injury

    Despite leaving Monday night's 5-4 loss to the Padres with a contusion and severe swelling in his right elbow after trying to make a play against the right-field fence, Michael Cuddyer was back in the Rockies' lineup Tuesday.

  • Weiss plans to give Brothers a breather

    Rockies manager Walt Weiss said before Tuesday's game he will try not to use lefty reliever Rex Brothers, who issued three walks and a wild pitch to lose Monday night's game against the Padres.

  • Barnes relied on faith during trying time

    Tuesday was another day in a job Rockies outfielder Brandon Barnes never thought he'd land. He nearly walked away when he was oh-so close.
