From -- thru  --


Rockies | Rockies altering weekend rotation

Fri, 27 May 2016 15:31:02 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Eddie Butler will pitch against the San Francisco Giants Saturday, May 28, and SP Chris Rusin will be pushed back to start against the Giants Sunday, May 29.

Fantasy Tip: With both outings taking place at hitter-friendly Coors Field, neither Butler or Rusin are viable options in the majority of fantasy formats. After all, Butler has a career 6.70 ERA through 48 1/3 innings at Coors, and Rusin has a 5.95 mark through 84 2/3 innings.

Rockies | Jorge De La Rosa bumped from rotation

Wed, 25 May 2016 14:36:07 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa will be moved to the bullpen for now, according to manager Walt Weiss. SP Chris Rusin will move into the starting rotation.

Fantasy Tip: It was only a matter of time for De La Rosa, who was sporting a horrendous 11.41 ERA and 2.28 WHIP in six starts for the Rockies this year after getting blasted by the Red Sox in his first start off the DL last night. He shouldn't be owned anywhere. Rusin has a 3.93 ERA in four starts for Colorado this year. He should only be an option for the desperate in NL-only leagues with a career 5.9 strikeouts per nine innings.

Rockies | Chris Rusin starting vs. Arizona Friday

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 14:10:10 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Chris Rusin will start against the Arizona Diamondbacks Friday, April 29. In a corresponding move, SP Jordan Lyles was optioned to the minors Monday, April 25.

Fantasy Tip: Rusin has pitched out of the bullpen to start the season, so he likely won't be stretched out enough to pitch deep into the game Friday, which is an obvious limitation to his fantasy value Friday. Additionally, he owns a 5.21 ERA through 42 career starts and will toss any home games at Coors Field. View Rusin as a desperation start in all fantasy formats until he proves otherwise. Similarly, Lyles, who owns a career 5.18 ERA through 570 1/3 innings, can be dropped in all leagues.

Rockies | Jon Gray won't be ready

Thu, 24 Mar 2016 11:47:59 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Jon Gray (abdomen) will not be ready for the start of the regular season due to an abdominal strain. Gray said he won't be able to pitch in a game for a couple of weeks. He had a 3.86 ERA in five spring training outings. SPs Chris Rusin (finger), Christian Bergman and David Hale are candidates for the fifth rotation spot now that Gray is hurt.

Fantasy Tip: Gray, a former first-round pick, could be ready by late April. Keep tabs on his recovery timeline. There is strikeout stuff here, but he's been too up and down to rely on with any kind of consistency to this point. More patience is required, but he's a prospect to stash in NL-only and keeper leagues.

Rockies | Chris Rusin to throw live BP

Tue, 22 Mar 2016 22:21:25 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Chris Rusin (finger) is expected to throw a second live batting practice session Wednesday, March 23. He hasn't pitched due to inflammation in his left middle finger.

Fantasy Tip: Rusin is currently on the outside looking in for the fifth rotation spot. He might work in middle relief while serving as a possible emergency starter. However, he is only worth using in the deepest of NL-only rotisserie leagues for help in the ERA and WHIP categories.

Rockies | Chris Rusin able to play catch

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 23:35:05 -0800

Colorado Rockies SP Chris Rusin (finger) was able to play catch Wednesday, March 9, for the first time in six days, as he has been sidelined due to an inflamed left middle finger.

Fantasy Tip: Rusin is in the mix for the No. 5 spot in the rotation, but he'll need to get in there and pitch well soon if he wants to unseat Jon Gray or David Hale.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez out of Sunday lineup

Sun, 27 Sep 2015 11:51:49 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez (back) is not starting Sunday, Sept. 27, against the Colorado Rockies. 1B Scott Van Slyke is batting fourth against Colorado Rockies SP Chris Rusin.

Fantasy Tip: Odds are Gonzalez ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) may have been held out anyway due to a lefty pitcher, but back trouble just cements his spot on the bench for the weekend. Van Slyke ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) doesn't have the numbers to justify the FantasyScore spot.

Dodgers | Chase Utley not starting Sunday

Sun, 27 Sep 2015 11:42:14 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley is not starting Sunday, Sept. 27, against the Colorado Rockies. 3B Alex Guerrero is at third base for this game, and 2B Howie Kendrick is at second. Guerrero is hitting sixth against Rockies SP Chris Rusin.

Fantasy Tip: The Dodgers are stacking their lineup with righties to battle Rusin, so Utley ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) won't start the game but could see action later. Odds are a .125 average against Rusin didn't help either. Guerrero ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has a .300 average in the past week and might be worth a low-cost flier to save cap room.

Rockies | Chris Rusin struggles on the road

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 20:07:39 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Chris Rusin is scheduled to start Tuesday, Aug. 11, against the New York Mets. He is 1-3 with a 5.40 ERA on the road.

Fantasy Tip: Rusin ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) hasn't won since June 21, a span of seven starts and one relief appearance. Needless to say, he isn't a very attractive FantasyScore option, especially since he is opposed by Matt Harvey.

Rockies | Chris Rusin looks to keep it going

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 18:27:27 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Chris Rusin heads into his scheduled start Thursday, June 11, against the Miami Marlins looking for similar results to last time out. He allowed just two earned runs with eight strikeouts over seven innings in a win against the Marlins at Coors Field June 6.

Fantasy Tip: Rusin ($3,100; or 6.2% of cap) is a nice speculative pick in FantasyScore given his success against the Marlins last time out. In three appearances (two starts) he has averaged 12.89 fantasy points per appearance.
