Colorado Rockies news, rumors and injuries
Sun, 24 Jul 2016 11:14:03 -0700
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Wed, 20 Jul 2016 09:26:20 -0700
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.
Wed, 20 Jul 2016 09:14:23 -0700
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.
Wed, 20 Jul 2016 08:07:40 -0700
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.

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.
Tue, 19 Jul 2016 23:25:14 -0700
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.
Tue, 19 Jul 2016 23:15:45 -0700
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.

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.
