Monday Rockpile: Exploring an extension for Ezequiel Tovar

Photo by Brian Rothmuller/Icon Sportswire via Colorado Rockies news and links for Monday, November 28, 2022 Although he only has a grand total of 14 days of service time, it sure seems clear that Ezequiel Tovar is the shortstop of both the present and future for the Colorado Rockies. In the past two seasons, Tovar tore through all four levels of the farm system, posting a .300/.348/.501 slash line and 124 wRC+ in 175 games against all degree of competition. His underlying statistics show his damage is being done with modest walk and strikeout rates and his defense has...

Friday Rockpile: A purple Street to the Hall of Fame?

Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports Colorado Rockies news and links for Friday, November 25, 2022 The Colorado Rockies had to wait 27 years into franchise history before getting their first player inducted into the MLB Hall of Fame. When Larry Walker shattered that ceiling — one fortified by false conceptions of how mile-high elevation inflates numbers without looking at the challenges of balancing altitude with road games — he cleared the way for future Rockies to do the same. The next Rockie to enter the Hall will be Todd Helton and he is trending in the right direction....

The MLB Winter Meetings aren’t for another two weeks, and while the real stoves are hot with cooking food the hypothetical transaction stove is quite cool for now.

Photo by Harry How/ Colorado Rockies news and links for Wednesday, November 23, 2022 The path to finding a center fielder this offseason got a little more interesting for the Colorado Rockies after the Los Angeles Dodgers non-tendered former MVP Cody Bellinger last Friday. In the wake of the news, speculation ran rampant over the weekend about where Bellinger could end up, and the Rockies entered that conversation. A couple of weeks ago I talked about the prospect of Brandon Nimmo joining the team, so let’s talk about this alternate option that the Rockies may...

Tuesday Rockpile: The best moves of the offseason...so far

Colorado Rockies news and links for Tuesday, November 22nd, 2022 In the two weeks since the MLB offseason began, the Colorado Rockies’ front office has been busy making moves and shaping the roster for next season.
