Brenton Doyle
Brenton Doyle Drives in four in win
Thu, Sep 28, 2023, 11:14 PM
Doyle went 2-for-5 with a triple, a double, four RBI and one run scored in Thursday's 14-5 win over the Dodgers.
Analysis: Doyle knocked in two runs with each of his two hits in the contest. This was just his fifth multi-hit effort in 24 games in September, and he's batting .250 (20-for-80) for the month. That's better than his .199 mark on the year, which comes with a meager .584 OPS in 123 contests overall. Doyle has added nine home runs, 45 RBI, 46 runs scored and 20 stolen bases.
Nolan Jones
Nolan Jones Drives in three in win
Thu, Sep 28, 2023, 11:05 PM
Jones went 1-for-5 with a double, a stolen base, three RBI and one run scored in Thursday's 14-5 win over the Dodgers.
Analysis: Jones knocked in one run on a fielder's choice in the third inning and added a two-run double a frame later. He's had a strong end of the season, hitting .330 (31-for-94) in September with six home runs, 10 steals and 21 RBI over 26 contests this month. Jones is at a .290/.383/.535 slash line with 19 homers, 18 steals, 60 RBI, 59 runs scored and 22 doubles across 103 games for the season, which has been a breakout year for the 25-year-old.
Sean Bouchard
Sean Bouchard Smacks second homer
Thu, Sep 28, 2023, 11:01 PM
Bouchard went 2-for-5 with a solo home run, a double and two total runs scored in Thursday's 14-5 win over the Dodgers.
Analysis: Bouchard is hitting .226 over 18 games since he was called up from Triple-A Albuquerque when rosters expanded at the start of September. His homer was his second in the majors this year, and he's added five RBI, seven runs scored, one double and a 3:11 BB:K over 18 contests. Bouchard will likely end the season in a part-time role.
Elehuris Montero
Elehuris Montero Smacks homer in three-hit game
Thu, Sep 28, 2023, 10:59 PM
Montero went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run, a double, a walk and four total runs scored in Thursday's 14-5 win over the Dodgers.
Analysis: This was arguably Montero's base game of the year from a fantasy perspective. He's logged six three-hit efforts, four of which have come since Aug. 15. The infielder is at a .247/.294/.417 slash line with nine homers, 37 RBI, 37 runs scored, 15 doubles and no stolen bases through 82 contests overall.
Charlie Blackmon
Charlie Blackmon Three extra-base hits in win
Thu, Sep 28, 2023, 10:38 PM
Blackmon went 3-for-5 with a solo home run, two doubles, one additional RBI, one stolen base and two total runs scored in Thursday's 14-5 win over the Dodgers.
Analysis: Blackmon filled the box score in a productive effort that began with a leadoff blast in the first inning. He also provided an RBI double in the seventh to cap a four-run rally. The 37-year-old has hit .268 (22-for-82) in September, and his homer Thursday was his first of the month. He's up to eight long balls, 40 RBI, 56 runs scored, three steals, 24 doubles and a .283/.370/.451 slash line through 93 games this season.
Chris Flexen
Chris Flexen Closes campaign with quality start
Thu, Sep 28, 2023, 10:36 PM
Flexen (2-8) allowed three runs on six hits and two walks while striking out three over six innings to earn the win over the Dodgers on Thursday.
Analysis: Flexen had a tough assignment on tap for his last outing, but he got the job done. He allowed a two-run home run to J.D. Martinez and a solo shot to Enrique Hernandez over the first two innings before settling down. Flexen hadn't gone six innings in any of his previous six appearances. He concludes the season with a 6.86 ERA, 1.67 WHIP and 74:38 K:BB over 102.1 innings across 29 games (16 starts) between the Mariners and the Rockies.
Connor Seabold
Connor Seabold Recalled from Triple-A
Thu, Sep 28, 2023, 4:28 PM
The Rockies recalled Seabold from Triple-A Albuquerque on Thursday.
Analysis: Seabold returns as a fresh bullpen arm for the Rockies leading into their final four games of the 2023 campaign. The 27-year-old right-hander carries an ugly 7.65 ERA through 82.1 major-league innings this season.
Noah Davis
Noah Davis Optioned to minors
Thu, Sep 28, 2023, 4:26 PM
The Rockies optioned Davis to the rookie-level Arizona Complex League on Thursday.
Analysis: Davis took a loss in his final outing of the year Wednesday versus the Dodgers after allowing four earned runs on seven hits and two walks over 4.1 innings. The 26-year-old right-hander posted an overall 8.70 ERA and 26:15 K:BB across 30 major-league innings (six starts, two relief appearances) this season with Colorado.
Hunter Goodman
Hunter Goodman Takes seat Thursday
Thu, Sep 28, 2023, 2:05 PM
Goodman is not in the lineup Thursday against the Dodgers.
Analysis: Goodman got off to a hot start when he initially joined the Rockies' major-league roster in late August, but he's gone 1-for-26 with 12 strikeouts over his last nine games. Sean Bouchard is in right field Thursday.
Elias Diaz
Elias Diaz On bench Thursday
Thu, Sep 28, 2023, 2:01 PM
Diaz is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Dodgers.
Analysis: Diaz gets a breather after going 0-for-4 with four strikeouts in the Rockies' loss to Los Angeles on Wednesday. Austin Wynns will start at catcher and bat eighth in Thursday's series finale.
Ryan McMahon
Ryan McMahon Gets breather Thursday
Thu, Sep 28, 2023, 1:59 PM
McMahon is not in the lineup Thursday versus the Dodgers.
Analysis: McMahon will grab some rest leading into the final weekend of the Rockies' season. Alan Trejo is starting at third base and batting seventh Thursday against Los Angeles.
Kris Bryant
Kris Bryant Out again with illness
Thu, Sep 28, 2023, 1:56 PM
Bryant (illness) remains out of the lineup Thursday against the Dodgers.
Analysis: It's the third straight absence for Bryant as he works back from an illness. Charlie Blackmon will serve as the Rockies' designated hitter Thursday as Elehuris Montero handles first base and Sean Bouchard covers right field.
Brendan Rodgers
Brendan Rodgers Belts third homer
Thu, Sep 28, 2023, 2:06 AM
Rodgers went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a loss to the Dodgers on Wednesday.
Analysis: Rodgers brought the Rockies to within 4-2 with his solo blast in the sixth inning, but that was the final run the team was able to muster. The long ball was his third of the campaign, all of which have come over his past seven games. Rodgers is slashing .310/.333/.690 over that stretch as he puts together a strong end to a mostly lost season -- he didn't play until late July due to a shoulder injury he suffered during spring training.
Kris Bryant
Kris Bryant Battling illness
Wed, Sep 27, 2023, 11:00 PM
Bryant has missed the Rockies' last few games due to an illness, Luke Zahlmann of The Denver Gazette reports.
Analysis: Bryant has sat out three of the Rockies' last four games and is considered day-to-day. Elehuris Montero has been serving as Colorado's primary first baseman with Bryant out of the lineup.
Tommy Doyle
Tommy Doyle Rejoins big club
Wed, Sep 27, 2023, 5:50 PM
Doyle was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque Wednesday, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Analysis: The 27-year-old was demoted in early September but will return to the major-league club for the final five games of the campaign. Doyle has a 5.31 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 14:9 K:BB across 20.1 innings this season.
Karl Kauffmann
Karl Kauffmann Back in big leagues
Wed, Sep 27, 2023, 5:48 PM
Kauffmann was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque on Wednesday, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Analysis: The right-hander was sent to Triple-A on Sept. 16 but will rejoin the MLB club with Daniel Bard (forearm) and Ryan Feltner (elbow) landing on the injured list. Kauffmann has started in three of his nine big-league appearances this season and has a 7.28 ERA across 29.2 innings, and it's possible he receives another start in Colorado's last five games given its injury issues in the rotation.
Daniel Bard
Daniel Bard Moves to injured list
Wed, Sep 27, 2023, 5:43 PM
Bard was placed on the 15-day injured list Wednesday with a right flexor strain, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Analysis: The veteran right-hander presumably picked up the injury Tuesday versus the Dodgers when he allowed a run on a hit and two walks over one inning. Bard finished this season with a 4.56 ERA, 1.70 WHIP and 47:49 K:BB in 49.1 innings and is under contract for 2024 at $9.5 million.
Ryan Feltner
Ryan Feltner Placed on 15-day IL
Wed, Sep 27, 2023, 5:36 PM
The Rockies placed Feltner on the 15-day injured list Wednesday with right elbow inflammation.
Analysis: Feltner started the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Dodgers and probably wasn't going to make another appearance either way. The 27-year-old right-hander finishes the 2023 campaign with a 5.82 ERA, 1.69 WHIP and 38:28 K:BB in 10 major-league starts covering 43.1 innings.
Kris Bryant
Kris Bryant Not starting Wednesday
Wed, Sep 27, 2023, 4:05 PM
Bryant is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Dodgers, Luke Zahlmann of The Denver Gazette reports.
Analysis: The 31-year-old was on the bench for Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader and will sit again for Wednesday's contest. Bryant has been unable to get things going at the plate since he returned from the injured list Sept. 11, as he has a .180/.212/.360 slash line and 32.7 percent strikeout rate in 13 games.
Noah Davis
Noah Davis Gets another start to close season
Wed, Sep 27, 2023, 11:25 AM
Davis is scheduled to start Wednesday's game against the Dodgers at Coors Field.
Analysis: Davis will be making a second straight turn through Colorado's rotation in what likely represents his final appearance of the season, barring him being needed in relief for Sunday's finale against the Twins on three days' rest. The right-hander struck out four over five innings this past Friday against the Cubs, but he was handed the loss after serving up three earned runs on four hits and three walks. He's not a recommended streaming option Wednesday while pitching at a hitter-friendly park against one of the majors' top offenses.
