Where do Rockies catchers rank in Statcast’s framing and pop time?

Where do Rockies catchers rank in Statcast’s framing and pop time?

Tony Wolters has one of the best pop times in baseball During the off-season, I argued that while not earth-shakingly good, the Rockies’ catchers were fine, and in some categories in the top third of the league. With this in mind, I decided to see what Statcast had to offer in terms of catching to evaluate where the Rockies’ catchers are as compared to the rest of the league. What I found surprised me, namely that Chris Iannetta and Tony Wolters are remarkably similar when it comes to rating their pitch framing ability — and neither are particularly elite. That said, Tony Wolters has...

Rockies 5, Diamondbacks 4: Rockies survive five double plays to win the series

Rockies 5, Diamondbacks 4: Rockies survive five double plays to win the series

That’s baseball. In a back-and-forth affair, the Rockies emerged victorious once again over the Diamondbacks. They have won four in a row and Arizona has now lost eight of their last eleven games. Too many double plays The Rockies hit into five double plays tonight, three of which were hit by last night’s hero Chris Iannetta. He is the fifth player in franchise history to hit into three double plays in the same game. In the second inning, Iannetta hit into a 5-4-3 double play; in the fourth, he hit into a 6-4-3; and in the sixth he hit into a 4-6-3 double play. Daniel Murphy hit into a...

Colorado Rockies game no. 54 thread: Robbie Ray vs. Jeff Hoffman

Colorado Rockies game no. 54 thread: Robbie Ray vs. Jeff Hoffman

Can the Rockies win the series? After being deadlocked at two apiece in the seventh inning, the Rockies rallied behind Chris Iannetta and Ryan McMahon to hand the Diamondbacks their seventh loss in their last ten games. Now, the Rockies will look to win the four game series against the Snakes with one game left tomorrow. Jeff Hoffman will take the mound against southpaw Robbie Ray. Hoffman will be making his third appearance for the Rockies, and hasn’t been overly sharp in his last two outings. He’s lasted only five innings both times, and last time against the Orioles he gave up five...

Rockies 6, Diamondbacks 2: Late offense sparks Rockies in win

The Rockies are starting to put together a nice streak The Colorado Rockies outlasted the Arizona Diamondbacks on a wet and cold night at Coors Field on Tuesday. They stifled rallies from Arizona throughout the night and then rode a late offensive surge to a 6-2 victory. Chris Iannetta comes through The deciding hit before they tacked on more runs later came in the seventh inning. Still facing the Arizona starter in Merrill Kelly, Iannetta came up with a runner on base. He got a curveball that hung a little bit and sent it into the stands. CI says, "See you!"And shoutout to the dude in...
