Pebble Report: Riley Pint, Michael Toglia make the jump to Triple-A, Zac Veen debuts for Hartford

Prospect news and statistics from the Rockies minor league affiliates from August 8-14, 2022 It was a busy week for the Colorado Rockies farm system. The Complex and Dominican Summer Leagues finished their second-to-last week of the season while the full-season affiliates continue to roll along. The Albuquerque Isotopes split their home series with Reno (ARI) as did the Fresno Grizzlies on the road against Inland Empire (LAA). The Hartford Yard Goats dropped their road set against Somerset while the Spokane Indians were the lone squad to win their series as they took down...

Diamondbacks 6, Rockies 0: Last night was way better

Diamondbacks 6, Rockies 0: Last night was way better

Photo by Dustin Bradford/ Plenty to cheer for as a Diamondbacks fan. The Rockies, meanwhile, didn’t touch second base until their final out. The Colorado Rockies followed up the most heartwarming win of the season with an offensive no-show in game two. Zac Gallen dominated the Colorado lineup for seven innings while Emmanuel Rivera and Josh Rojas provided the thump for Arizona in a 6-0 loss on Saturday. The rise of Rivera Emmanuel Rivera entered the ballgame with nine career home runs and never more than one in a single game. That was until he matched-up with José...

Colorado Rockies game no. 116 thread: Zac Gallen vs José Ureña

Photo by Norm Hall/ Rockies look to keep the good times rolling in second game of the series In normal years, the first game of a series between two teams at the bottom of their division would not be noteworthy. But that was not the case in Colorado’s victory against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday, as it marked the major league debut of outfielder Wynton Bernard. Bernard made his impact on a Rockies’ win and the club hopes to keep the momentum going in game two. Zac Gallen (7-2, 3.12 ERA) will take the mound for the Diamondbacks. He has allowed three earned runs...

Saturday Rockpile: The Rockies need an answer for center field

Saturday Rockpile: The Rockies need an answer for center field

Photo by RJ Sangosti/MediaNews Group/The Denver Post via Colorado Rockies news and links for Saturday, August 12, 2022 As the 2022 Colorado Rockies season continues to trudge along, little has moved the needle for the franchise’s return to relevance. Kris Bryant’s first season has been a disappointment as the former All-Star has spent the vast majority of the year on the injured list and the front office is still pointing to the farm system for optimism. In an unorthodox way, the farm system is already producing possibly the best story line of the season, though....

His dominant performance in Triple-A cannot be denied, and the minor league awards...

Pebble Report: Pitching prospect Case Williams shines in High-A debut

Prospect news and statistics from the Rockies minor league affiliates from August 1-7, 2022 The Colorado Rockies farm system received their first taste of new blood in the Arizona Complex League. Jordan Beck debuted in the ACL, collecting four hits including his first professional home run on Saturday. Sterlin Thompson also appeared game-action, as did Kody Huff and undrafted free agent Parker Kelly. On the full-season affiliate side, the Albuquerque Isotopes had a miserable series against El Paso (SD), dropping all five games played. The Hartford Yard Goats also dropped their...

Saturday Rockpile: The Rockies have a roster shake-up coming, and it only got worse in the past week

Photo by David Durochik/Diamond Images via Colorado Rockies news and links for Saturday, August 6, 2022 The idleness from the Colorado Rockies at the 2022 trade deadline is still a fresh wound for followers of the team. While the rest of the league was shuffling their rosters around, the Rockies were the only franchise content with standing pat. The questions surrounding the organization’s plan for the present and future are abundant, and the less the front office does the louder they seem to get. There are too-many “what-ifs” to dig into, but it’s safe to say...

Pebble Report: It’s time to talk about Wynton Bernard

Prospect news and statistics from the Rockies minor league affiliates from July 25-31, 2022 The Colorado Rockies’ full-season affiliates resumed their normal schedule after an abbreviated week during the All-Star break. The Fresno Grizzlies struggled in their matchup with Modesto (SEA), dropping five-of-six games. Hartford split their series with the Portland Sea Dogs (BOS) while Albuquerque and Spokane each picked up a series win. Wynton Bernard was a staple for the Isotopes’ success. In the series against the Aviators, Bernard went 11-for-26, scoring and driving-in eight...

Saturday Rockpile: If the Rockies refuse to sell, they should learn how to buy

Colorado Rockies news and links for Saturday, July 30, 2022 Yes, another deadline column as we are now just three days away from the August 2nd cutoff. We’ve kicked the dead horse on the need to face the truth that they should sell pieces that are unlikely to be a part of the next winning team. But, staring a fourth straight losing season, the Colorado Rockies are again looking likely to defy the industry consensus out of hubris. So…okay, fine. If the organization doesn’t want to acknowledge the reality of the situation and try to build a better future at the expense of...

Rockies 2, Brewers 0: Freeland bests Ashby in pitcher’s duel

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports Kyle Freeland delivers his best start of the season while Daniel Bard averts disaster in the ninth After dropping the first three games of the series, the Colorado Rockies were staring down another winless season in Milwaukee. But, for the first time since May of 2019, Colorado was able to best the Brewers on their home turf behind Kyle Freeland’s best start of 2022. The news wasn’t all good, however, as José Iglesias was pulled in the second inning after fouling a ball off his foot and may face time on the IL moving forward. But a...

Pebble Report: Streaking Yard Goats and Chris McMahon returns

Prospect news and statistics from the Rockies minor league affiliates from July 18-24, 2022 It was a slow week in the minors, with full-season affiliates being out of game action for half of the week during the All-Star break. The DSL and ACL squads resumed their normal schedule, with the biggest development from the short-season squads being the season debut of Chris McMahon (No. 9 PuRP). After an impressive first season in 2021, McMahon had been sidelined since Spring Training with an oblique strain. He joins Jaden Hill (No. 12 PuRP) and Helcris Oliveraz (No. 13 PuRP) as...

Saturday Rockpile: The next five weeks will show how close the Rockies really are to contending

Photo by Norm Hall/ Colorado Rockies news and links for Saturday, July 23, 2022 The Colorado Rockies entered the All-Star break on a good note, going 7-3 in their last 10 games and 12-8 in their last 20. Over half of each of those segments were constituted by games against the Arizona Diamondbacks and Pittsburgh Pirates – teams deeper in the basement than Colorado – but wins are wins. Kris Bryant has returned from injury and shown well with a 160 wRC+ since his return. Friday also marked the return of Antonio Senzatela, who missed most of July with a back strain....
