Colorado Rockies news, rumors and injuries
Sat, 01 Aug 2015 14:51:16 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Stubbs ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has hit four home runs against righties this season, but he is hitting just .208, and he should be avoided against Lynn.
Sat, 01 Aug 2015 14:45:09 -0700
Fantasy Tip: McKenry ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) doesn't have a multi-hit game or an extra-base hit since June 27, and he doesn't need to be considered for FantasyScore purposes.

Colorado Rockies SS Jose Reyes isn't in the starting lineup Saturday, Aug. 1, against the St. Louis Cardinals. 2B Daniel Descalso will start at shortstop and hit eighth in the lineup against RHP Lance Lynn, while 2B DJ LeMahieu will start at second base and hit second in the order.
Fantasy Tip: LeMahieu ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has had at least one hit in all but one game since July 3. He doesn't have a home run in that span, but he has hit five doubles, and he has 11 multi-hit games. LeMahieu will continue to be a strong FantasyScore option.

Colorado Rockies manager Walt Weiss has removed RP John Axford from the closer's role for the time being. He has allowed runs in five consecutive appearances, blowing four saves during that stretch. The team is expected to use a closer-by-committee approach for the foreseeable future.
Fantasy Tip: It is uncertain if or when Axford will return to ninth-inning duties. For now, RPs Rafael Betancourt, Tommy Kahnle and Justin Miller could see save opportunities for Colorado.

Fantasy Tip: Dickerson ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) likely will miss several weeks because of the broken ribs. Drew Stubbs ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) and Brandon Barnes ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) likely will receive some starts while Dickerson is out, but neither is a must-start option in FantasyScore.

Colorado Rockies OF Corey Dickerson (ribs) is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 31. OF Brandon Barnes is starting in left field and batting eighth against St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha Friday.
Fantasy Tip: Dickerson ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) can't catch a break, as he exited the game with a rib injury Thursday, July 30. Continue to check back for updates on his health. Barnes ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) would typically project as a nice low-priced target for FantasyScore players, but Wacha ($8,300, 16.6% of cap) is stringy, and you should likely look elsewhere.
Fri, 31 Jul 2015 11:13:15 -0700
Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez will not be traded before the trade deadline Friday, July 31. The organization is telling teams they will revisit moving Gonzalez in August or during the offseason.
Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is on an absolute tear right now, and remaining with the Rockies ensures he'll play his home games at hitter-friendly Coors Field. Over his past 189 plate appearances through 47 games, Gonzalez has 32 runs, 11 doubles, 17 home runs, 39 RBI and a .337/.376/.703 slash line. He is worth a look nightly at FantasyScore, but especially when he has a home game or faces a favorable opposing hurler.
Thu, 30 Jul 2015 21:53:10 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Axford has now allowed at least one run in five straight appearances, blowing four saves and suffering three losses. Don't be surprised if he ends up being relieved of his closer duties, at least temporarily. If you are hunting for saves, Rafael Betancourt or Boone Logan could be the best bets to replace Axford.
Thu, 30 Jul 2015 18:52:01 -0700
Fantasy Tip: On the plus side, Dickerson ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) didn't aggravate the foot injury that has bothered him this season, but he could still miss a game or two. Check back on his status moving forward before using him at FantasyScore.
Thu, 30 Jul 2015 13:53:20 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Reynolds ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has historically fared well against left-handed hurlers, but this season, he is just 16-for-75 with a .709 OPS. You should likely aim higher at FantasyScore, and with Brandon Moss ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) landing with the Cards, Reynolds may be relegated to more of a bench role.
Wed, 29 Jul 2015 20:55:58 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Reyes ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) could see a slight bump in value in FantasyScore, especially when he makes his home debut at Coors Field and starts playing in Denver regularly.
Wed, 29 Jul 2015 11:13:27 -0700
Fantasy Tip: It seems unlikely that the Rockies will deal Car-Go ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) after just trading away Troy Tulowitzki, but it's not out of the realm of possibilities. Gonzalez has picked it up, hitting .385 (30-for-78) with 10 home runs and 23 RBI in the month of July. A trade out of Coors Field would be a setback for his fantasy value, but if he keeps swinging the way he has been, no change of venue can slow him down.
Wed, 29 Jul 2015 09:40:12 -0700
Fantasy Tip: LeMahieu ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has a .405-0-9 line this month and holds his own against lefties with a .316 average this year. Jon Lester is on a roll, but LeMahieu is a good midrange option on FantasyScore.
Wed, 29 Jul 2015 09:39:42 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Carlos Gonzalez hit third against a righty yesterday, so the two could share the lineup spot with Troy Tulowitzki gone. Arenado ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) actually has more pop on the road with a .266-15-39 line than at home with his .298-10-37 split. He's an everyday option on FantasyScore.
Wed, 29 Jul 2015 09:39:15 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Reyes ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is just 2-for-23 lifetime against Jon Lester and may not be the best option today on FantasyScore. However, when he goes back to Coors Field, this price is a good price.
