San Francisco Giants: Long Ball Hurts Samardzija, Giants fall to Cubs

The San Francisco Giants came into Chicago hot and had a chance to make a statement. Having won seven of their last nine games, they had to win at least two games here. Instead, the Giants lose 3-out-of-4 and are heading back home 11 games out of first place.

Rockies prospect Forrest Wall injured and out for season, per report

The bounce back season for the Rockies prospect will have to wait another year. Rockies prospect Forrest Wall will be out for the remainder of the season, according to Bobby DeMuro of Baseball Census. DeMuro, whose name sounds vaguely familiar, writes that the 21-year-old Wall dislocated his left shoulder earlier this month while diving for a ball in the outfield. Wall, currently Purple Row’s 15th ranked Rockies prospect, struggled in Class A Advanced Modesto in 2016. The power and on-base ability that he displayed in Class A Asheville diminished as he jumped to the California League. The...

Tyler Anderson allowed one run in seven innings but ended up with a no-decision.

After scoring a combined 28 runs in the first three games of the series, the Rockies and Phillies had an old fashioned...

Dodgers: Dodgers Slowly Quieting the LHP Narrative

Entering the 2017 season, the Dodgers’ big elephant in the room was the inability to hit left-handed pitching. The only thing more annoying than hearing the national sports media loathe over the Cubs was hearing them talk about this problem. Despite an 8-8 overall record in games started by a left-handed starting pitcher, the Dodgers have […] Dodgers: Dodgers Slowly Quieting the LHP Narrative - Dodgers Way - Dodgers Way - LA Dodgers News, Rumors and Scores

Colorado Rockies prospect Matt Carasiti continues to mow down Triple-A hitters

Prospect news and game results from the Rockies minor league affiliates from Wednesday May 24, 2017. Matt Carasiti (HM PuRP) undoubtedly had a rough MLB debut last fall. Those struggles resulted in him even being non-tendered at the deadline last winter. After declaring minor-league free agency, Carasiti resigned with the Rockies in hopes of getting a second chance. While he’s yet to get that second chance, he’s been doing a great job of trying to force the Rockies into giving him one. Through last night’s game, Carasiti has struck out 22 in 16 1⁄3 innings while earning 11 saves as...

Colorado Rockies starting rotation has five spots for eight pitchers

Colorado Rockies starting rotation has five spots for eight pitchers

Five baseballs, eight contestants. Who stays and who goes? This has been an abnormal season for the Colorado Rockies. Yes, they have the best start in team history, but that’s not what I’m referring to. It’s this foreign concept of “pitching depth”, where there’s talent beyond the first four, maybe five (hell, two?), starting pitchers in the major leagues. Instead, the Rockies have eight—yes, eight—starters that can pitch deep into games and give the team a chance to win. Unfortunately, the full squadron of arms aren’t operational right now. Two are out of commission,...

Once upon a time that might have been a chore with so little talent coming up, but not anymore. “It’s way, way more (talent) than ever before,” Scott said. “That’s what’s so exciting. When you can absorb the losses that we had in spring training of Chad Bettis and then Jon Gray, and to be able to maintain a winning...
