Rockies | Plan to stick with four-man rotation next year

The Colorado Rockies will continue to use a form of the four-man rotation next season, according to general manager Dan O'Dowd. Four starters would be on a 75-pitch count and four "hybrid" pitchers would be on roster that would be trained starters limited to 50 pitches. SPs Jorge De La Rosa, Jhoulys Chacin, Jeff Francis and Drew Pomeranz could be the four starters next year, followed by Ps Tyler Chatwood, Alex White, Juan Nicasio and Christian Friedrich as the piggyback pitchers. The Rockies have pitched better this year since making the change; before the switch the starters were 13-20 with a 6.28 ERA and after the switch they are 11-26 with a 5.61 ERA in 64 games.
