Colorado Rockies news, rumors and injuries
Wed, 27 May 2015 14:48:07 -0700
Fantasy Tip: It was Arenado's ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) third home run over his past four games, and his recent surge has his season slash line up to .287/.331/.549. He is an emerging star in the real and fake game, and Arenado could hit his way to third base's top tier. He is worth considering for FantasyScore usage whenever the Rockies play at Coors Field or face a favorable pitching matchup.

Fantasy Tip: With Justin Morneau (concussion) on the DL, Paulsen ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) and Wilin Rosario ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) have been sharing time at first base, with Paulsen seeing the bulk of the starts. Paulsen is a low-end first base play at FantasyScore, but he does have some appeal going up against Leake, who is slumping and has allowed 14 runs in his last nine innings over two starts.
Wed, 27 May 2015 09:11:01 -0700
Fantasy Tip: McKenry ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) makes for a deep sleeper play at catcher, and nothing more, at FantasyScore today. Leake has allowed 14 runs in his last nine innings over two starts.
Tue, 26 May 2015 19:32:39 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Rusin allowed four hits and four walks while striking out five batters. It's unknown if Rusin will make another start, but he could be a FantasyScore option if he does.
Tue, 26 May 2015 19:29:15 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) should be avoided like the plague on FantasyScore until he strings some solid games together. There's not much reason to expect a quick turnaround to his disastrous season.
Tue, 26 May 2015 15:29:06 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Paulsen ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is 10-for-28 with a home run and four RBI in his limited time with the Rockies this year. He makes for an acceptable sleeper play against Lorenzen tonight. Lorenzen has allowed a slash line of .370/.485/.556 to left-handed batters in 2015.
Tue, 26 May 2015 14:18:45 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Lyles ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has allowed at least four runs in each of his three full starts in May, and he should be avoided at FantasyScore until he can turn things around and prove he's past his toe issue. You can drop him in shallow mixed leagues for now.

Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa (finger) had his start pushed back from Tuesday, May 26, to Saturday, May 30, against the Philadelphia Phillies. De La Rosa is dealing with a cut on his left middle finger.
Fantasy Tip: De La Rosa ($3,700, 7.4% of cap), strangely enough, pitches better at hitter-friendly Coors Field than on the road. However, a matchup against the Phillies this weekend should at least put him in consideration as a sleeper play at FantasyScore.
Tue, 26 May 2015 07:05:20 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Hundley ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is a modestly priced fantasy option for daily gamers and could be looked to on your league's waiver wire for those in two-catcher setups or as a stream in single-catcher leagues.

Colorado Rockies 3B Nolan Arenado went 3-for-4 with a three-run home run in a 5-4 win over the Cincinnati Reds Sunday, May 25, and he is 7-for-9 with two home runs, seven RBIs and four runs scored over his last two games.
Fantasy Tip: Arenado ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) had been stuck in a rough patch, but he has erupted in the last two games. With Colorado facing the slumping Cincinnati Reds for a couple more games, you may want to jump on the Arenado bandwagon at FantasyScore.
Mon, 25 May 2015 18:56:00 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Blackmon ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has shown an intriguing combination of power and speed, and he is on pace for 23 home runs and 38 steals. He makes a solid play at FantasyScore when he is facing a right-handed pitcher.
Mon, 25 May 2015 09:33:14 -0700
Updating a previous report, Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon will play against Cincinnati Reds Monday, May 25, after OF Carlos Gonzalez (illness) was scratched from the lineup. Blackmon will bat first in the starting lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Blackmon ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) was scheduled to receive the day off but will play with Gonzalez out. He is hitting only .237 this month but has hit four of his six home runs in May. Owners on FantasyScore could consider using him in their starting lineups.
Mon, 25 May 2015 09:12:17 -0700
Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez (illness) has been scratched from the starting lineup Monday, May 25, because of an illness. OF Brandon Barnes will move to right field, and OF Charlie Blackmon will start in center field.
Fantasy Tip: Owners should look for an update on Gonzalez ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) after the game to see if he will miss multiple games. Blackmon ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) was scheduled to sit out the game but will take Gonzalez's spot in the lineup and could be a solid starting option.
Mon, 25 May 2015 08:16:10 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Tulowitzki ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) should return to the lineup in the near future. Descalso ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting only .203 in limited playing time this season and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.
Mon, 25 May 2015 07:59:46 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Blackmon ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) probably is receiving a day off and should return soon. Barnes ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has gone 8-for-13 since being recalled by the Rockies and could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore.
