Rockies | Wilin Rosario sent down

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 14:46:08 -0700

Colorado Rockies C Wilin Rosario was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque Wednesday, April 22, where he'll play first base regularly. RP John Axford was called up in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Rosario ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) wasn't very useful to owners aside from those in deep NL-only leagues because of his inconsistent playing time. On the bright side, he did have five hits in 14 at-bats (.357) with a home run. You can now cut bait on him if you were holding him in deep mixed leagues.

Rockies | John Axford returns

Thu, 02 Apr 2015 17:56:01 -0700

Colorado Rockies RP John Axford returned to the mound Thursday, April 2, in a minor league game. Axford hadn't pitched competitively since Wednesday, March 25, when he left the team to be with his two-year-old son who was in an area hospital after being bit by a snake.

Fantasy Tip: Axford pitched a scoreless inning Thursday and is aiming for a spot on the Rockies' opening day roster. With 116 career saves, it is possible Axford could eventually gain closer duties at some point this season out of a thing Rockies' bullpen. He'll be worth keeping an eye on through the early part of the season.

Rockies | John Axford selected by COL

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 04:57:42 -0800

Colorado Rockies SP John Axford had his contract selected by the team Sunday, March 1. The move puts Axford on the 40-man roster. To make room for Axford, SP Tyler Chatwood (elbow) went to the 60-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: In all essence Axford has made the team and will pick up a $2.6 million salary. Axford could be a sleeper candidate in Colorado, but he should still go lower in most NL and mixed drafts given his shaky history and the fact he's pitching in Denver.
