Colorado Rockies option Stephen Cardullo but aren’t done shaking up the bench yet

Colorado Rockies news, notes and link for Wednesday, April 26 Bud Black jiggers with Rockies roster for more offense | Denver Post In a bit of a surprise, the Rockies kept all three of their utility infielders yesterday and instead optioned Stephen Cardullo to make room for last night’s starter German Marquez. While the Rockies may only be carrying three true outfielders, they have multiple players who can fill in there in Alexi Amarista, Mark Reynolds and even Pat Valaika. While the three utility infielders escaped the cut this time, Ian Desmond’s imminent return will most likely...

This is becoming more and more likely as Mark Reynolds continues to excel this year. Desmond was an above average outfielder last year for the Texas Rangers, his first at the position.

Colorado Rockies first baseman Mark Reynolds is having a late career change

From 2007 to 2015, Reynolds made a name for himself by being a home run hitting strikeout machine. His 2009 and 2010 seasons capture these extremes. In that first year, he hit 44 home runs, a career high. In the following year, Reynolds’s batting average was .198, a career low. There was some consistency though: He struck out more than 33 percent of the time in each season. By the time the 2013 season came around, everyone was fully aware of his strengths and...
