Rockies | Ryan Raburn in starting lineup

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 11:14:03 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Ryan Raburn will start in left field and is batting sixth against Atlanta Braves SP Tyrell Jenkins Sunday, July 24. OF Daniel Descalso is not in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Raburn has gone hitless in his last seven games and is hitting only .138 in July. Owners in most leagues should be able to avoid Raburn until he produces at the plate again.

Rockies | Trevor Story sets record

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 21:59:03 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Trevor Story went 4-for-4 with two home runs, five RBI, three runs scored and a steal in an 8-4 win over the Atlanta Braves Saturday, July 23, and his 26 home runs set a rookie record for the most by a National League shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: Story has mashed five more homers since the All-Star break, and you should be able to count on him to provide excellent power numbers for the rest of the season.

Rockies | Jon Gray has solid outing

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 21:37:39 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Jon Gray allowed one run on six hits while walking one and striking out eight over seven innings in a win over the Atlanta Braves Friday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: Gray has allowed two runs or less in three straight starts, striking out eight in all three outings. He is a viable option in NL-only leagues and a potential sleeper in DFS formats against friendly matchups.

Rockies | Nolan Arenado in a rut

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 16:19:50 -0700

Colorado Rockies 3B Nolan Arenado is 4-for-18 (.222) in his last five games since the All-Star break.

Fantasy Tip: It's a testament to how great of a season Arenado is having that he's still hitting .287/.359/.554 with 23 RBI and an NL-leading 71 RBI on the year. Every players goes through cold spells, and Arenado is having his now, albeit over a small window. A day of rest Thursday hopefull will help him get back on track.

Rockies | Charlie Blackmon in midst of streak

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 14:08:47 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon has a current 12-game hitting streak and has hit safely in 24 of his last 26 games and reached base in 25 of 26.

Fantasy Tip: Blackmon is hitting .308 with 12 home runs, 44 RBI and 10 steals on the year and is a midrange fantasy outfielder that is more valuable when he's playing at hitter-friendly Coors Field. He hits .284 with five homers and 16 RBI on the road, which means his fantasy luster could take a slight hit if he's dealt this summer.

Rockies | Nolan Arenado, Mark Reynolds out

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 14:00:45 -0700

Colorado Rockies 3B Nolan Arenado and 1B Mark Reynolds are not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 21. SS Cristhian Adames is starting at third base and is hitting eighth, while 2B Daniel Descalso is at first base and batting fifth against Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz.

Fantasy Tip: Arenado and Reynolds are likely just seeing normal days off. Adames has no business being in any fantasy lineup with a .200/.304/.290 slash line in 100 at-bats. Descalso, on the other hand, is having a fine season in a utility role with a .346 average, two homers and 19 RBI. The average is likely to come down, though, and he doesn't have much power that plays in daily formats.

Rockies | Gerardo Parra nearing rehab assignment

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 12:47:56 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Gerardo Parra (ankle) will run Thursday, July 21, and he wants to begin a rehab assignment Sunday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: Parra is worth stashing in the majority of seasonal leagues now that he's nearing a return. He plays his home games at hitter-friendly Coors Field and offers modest five-category upside. Scoop him up and hope for a strong finish to 2016.

Rockies | JDLR bounced around at Coors Field

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 22:02:19 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa allowed nine runs - seven earned - and 11 hits over four innings with two walks and a strikeout Wednesday, July 20, against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Fantasy Tip: JDLR had been money at Coors Field heading into this season, but he has been a disaster regardless of venue this season. He is 6-7 with a 6.07 ERA this season and is only worth keeping in the deepest of NL-only leagues at this point.

Rockies | Daniel Descalso starting in left field

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 09:26:20 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Daniel Descalso is starting in left field and batting sixth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer Wednesday, July 20. OF Ryan Raburn is not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Descalso and Raburn have been platooning in left field, but Decalso has been the much better fantasy contributor with a .338/.435/.481 slash line through 92 plate appearances this season. In cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues, he's a viable option to plug in your lineups when he's starting. Gerardo Parra's return will next to quash any legitimate fantasy value, though.

Rockies | Nick Hundley sitting vs. Tampa

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 09:14:23 -0700

Colorado Rockies C Nick Hundley is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 20. C Tony Wolters is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Hundley has underwhelmed during a 30-game stretch with a .230/.310/.380 slash line and just two home runs and 14 RBI since returning from the disabled list Friday, June 3. Currently, he should be viewed as a low-end option in cavernous mixed, two-catcher and NL-only leagues. Given the game is at Coors Field, Wolters is worth starting in all seasonal leagues and warrants a long look in daily contests. He owns a .311/.391/.492 line at home this season, after all.

Rockies | Boone Logan garnering trade interest

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 08:07:40 -0700

Colorado Rockies RP Boone Logan is of trade interest to the Chicago Cubs, Washington Nationals and San Francisco Giants, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: The left-handed-throwing Logan has held left-handed hitters to a .465 OPS this season, which makes him an attractive bullpen piece for a contending team. He'll have next to no fantasy value as a specialist, though.

Rays | Blake Snell shuts down Rockies

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 23:52:34 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Blake Snell gave up just one hit over six shutout innings against the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday, July 19. The rookie walked three and struck out a career-high nine.

Fantasy Tip: Snell looked every bit a top prospect Tuesday night at Coors Field, completely shutting down a potent Rockies lineup en route to his second major-league victory. The sky is the limit for the lanky southpaw, and while he's a long shot to offer enough in standard leagues he's worth taking a chance on in deeper mixed formats.

Rockies | Chris Rusin continues rehab

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 23:25:14 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Chris Rusin (shoulder) gave up one run on four hits over four innings of work for Class AAA Albuquerque on Tuesday, July 19.

Fantasy Tip: Rusin put together two strong starts -- 13 IP, 7 H, 3 ER, 6 K's -- prior to hitting the disabled list, but it's unclear what role the southpaw will fill upon returning. If he comes back as a starter he'd be worth a look in NL-only leagues. If he returns in long relief, however, he'd be of no interest.

Rockies | Trevor Story homers in consecutive games

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 23:15:45 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Trevor Story was 2-for-2 with a pair of walks and a solo home run against the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday, July 19.

Fantasy Tip: In four post-ASB games, Story is 6-for-12 with five walks, two home runs, three RBI and six runs scored. He has even attempted two steals (one successful). We all know how hot Story can get, so if you happened to slide him onto your reserve roster at any point you should make sure to get him active again.

Rockies | Tyler Chatwood's home struggles continue

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 22:58:43 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Chatwood yielded seven runs on eight hits in three innings against the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday, July 19. He walked two and struck out one en route to his sixth loss at Coors Field this season.

Fantasy Tip: Tampa Bay entered this series dead last in the majors in runs for July, and yet they managed to top their best output of the month (five runs) in just three innings against Chatwood. He's simply a different pitcher on the road, and tonight proved he can't be relied on even in a plus match-up. Until further notice your best approach is to start Chatwood on the road and keep him nestled securely on the virtual pine at Coors Field.
