Rockies | Adam Ottavino activated

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 17:12:52 -0700

Colorado Rockies RP Adam Ottavino (elbow) was activated from the 60-day disabled list Tuesday, July 5. He takes the roster spot of RP Justin Miller, who is out of minor league options.

Fantasy Tip: Ottavino is returning from Tommy John surgery. He didn't allow a run in 10 outings before his injury last year and had three saves to boot. He has the stuff to be successful as a late-inning reliever for the Rockies, but Carlos Estevez and Jake McGee are ahead of him currently. Keep Ottavino on your fantasy radar as a potential long-term closing option.

Mon, 04 Jul 2016 18:53:29 -0700

Colorado Rockies RP Adam Ottavino (elbow) joined the team Monday, July 4, and he could be activated from the disabled list prior to the All-Star break.

Fantasy Tip: Ottavino picked up three saves last year, but he doesn't need to be on the fantasy radar at this point.

Rockies | Closer-by-committee approach for Rockies?

Fri, 05 Feb 2016 15:10:07 -0800

Colorado Rockies RPs Jake McGee, Jason Motte, Chad Qualls and Adam Ottavino (elbow) are all candidates to pitch in the ninth inning, according to bullpen coach Darren Holmes. Holmes noted the bullpen will focus on retiring hitters at critical times and not predetermined roles.

Fantasy Tip: Bullpen by committees are a hassle for fantasy owners, and given the home venue in this discussion, the fantasy value is low for all four arms in the majority of leagues. However, it is also Friday, Feb. 5, so a lot can change before the season starts, and a full-time closer could emerge at some point. For the time being, though, proceed with caution when approaching this bullpen. Ottavino has the lowest value because he'll be for the majority of the first half of the season following Tommy John surgery last year.

Rockies | Adam Ottavino doing well

Thu, 21 May 2015 17:45:30 -0700

Colorado Rockies RP Adam Ottavino (elbow) said his elbow "doesn't hurt or anything" Thursday, May 21, two weeks after undergoing season-ending Tommy John surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Ottavino won't be an option for 2016 fantasy drafts, but the fact that he's doing well shortly after the surgery could point toward Ottavino returning at some point next season.

Rockies | Adam Ottavino facing Tommy John surgery

Mon, 04 May 2015 14:29:56 -0700

Colorado Rockies RP Adam Ottavino (elbow) said he will likely require season-ending Tommy John surgery to repair his injured right elbow Monday, May 4. Ottavino has a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow and will meet with Dr. James Andrews.

Fantasy Tip: Unless you're able to roster Ottavino in a DL slot, there is no need to keep him. Pitching with a torn ulnar collateral ligament is a ticking time bomb in the real and fake game. John Axford appears to he the closer for the foreseeable future for the Rockies.

Rockies | Adam Ottavino seeking answers

Fri, 01 May 2015 09:59:17 -0700

Colorado Rockies RP Adam Ottavino (elbow) is still seeking multiple orthopedist opinions regarding the health of his elbow.

Fantasy Tip: John Axford's rope just got a little longer. Ottavino is worth stashing on your DL, but Axford needs to be picked up in most formats.

Rockies | Adam Ottavino also has elbow issue

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 05:53:48 -0700

Colorado Rockies RP Adam Ottavino (elbow, triceps) had an MRI also reveal inflammation in his right elbow, which will likely keep him out longer than two weeks. Manager Walt Weiss said it's not so much that Ottavino has two injuries, but that the triceps inflammation is lower on his arm, nearer the elbow.

Fantasy Tip: John Axford should be picked up in deeper formats or if you need saves.

Rockies | Adam Ottavino put on DL

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 15:01:40 -0700

Colorado Rockies RP Adam Ottavino (triceps) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with right triceps inflammation Monday, April 27. RP Jorge Rondon was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Ottavino should be stashed in a DL slot in all leagues. Those in need of saves should immediately run to the waiver wire and add John Axford, if he's available. Axford is expected to be first in line for save chances with Ottavino ailing, with Rafael Betancourt likely the setup man.
