Dodgers 5, Rockies 2: Bryant’s first bomb not enough to lift Rox over LA

Dodgers 5, Rockies 2: Bryant’s first bomb not enough to lift Rox over LA

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports The Rockies enjoyed a lead for a half-inning, but it was all Dodgers after the second frame in the loss Ryan McMahon continued his hot streak with a three-hit game and Kris Bryant finally went yard, but there was little else to celebrate in Tuesday night’s losing effort against Los Angeles. The Dodgers relied on timely hitting and an effective rookie starter to take the 5-2 victory over the Rockies. Pepiot-no Ryan Pepiot was making his first MLB start in over a month, with significant room for improvement over his last few outings....

Rockies 11, Diamondbacks 7: Welcome to Coors Field

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports The Rockies were able to find some offense and even up the series with the D-backs. The Rockies took an early lead and were able to maintain it throughout the game to even up the series against the Diamondbacks.

Lately, there have been numerous polls on social media going around asking if the Colorado Rockies‘ signing of Kris Bryant this past offseason is a bust. Due to Bryant’s ongoing stint on the injured list, that question is entirely unfair and way too early to make a determination.

Saturday Rockpile: There feels like more at stake than just wins in Kris Bryant’s return

Photo by Ethan Mito/Clarkson Creative/ Colorado Rockies news and links for Saturday, June 18, 2022 The Colorado Rockies outfield production has not been good in 2022. So far this season, only Yonathan Daza and Connor Joe have posted a wRC+ above league average and the group collectively has been good for a .707 OPS and 87 wRC+ in 1,187 plate appearances heading into Friday. This is on-par with the lineup’s struggles as a whole, so seeing a group representing one-third of the lineup posting mediocre figures is no big surprise. But coming off a historically bad outfield...

Tuesday Rockpile: Does Chad Kuhl belong on the trading block?

Photo by Dustin Bradford/ Colorado Rockies news and links for Tuesday, June 7, 2022 There is only one pitcher on the Colorado Rockies’ top 10 prospects list, per MLB Pipeline. If Chad Kuhl is traded, that could instantly change. If action is not taken, it could be multiple seasons before the next crop of MLB-caliber starting pitchers are propelled through the Rockies’ minor-league system. ‘Multiple seasons’ should not sound appealing to veterans like Kris Bryant, Kyle Freeland, Antonio Senzatela and Ryan McMahon, having just committed five or more seasons to the...
