Rockies | Kyle Kendrick to the DL

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 06:41:56 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Kyle Kendrick (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday, Aug. 1. Kendrick is dealing with shoulder inflammation.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has been a favorite pitcher of FantasyScore owners for stacking purposes. He carries no positive fantasy value, and he can be dropped if still owned.

Rockies | Nolan Arenado shows rare power

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 06:38:05 -0700

Colorado Rockies 3B Nolan Arenado hit his 26th home run of the season Saturday, Aug. 1. Arenado hit just one homer in all of July.

Fantasy Tip: Arenado ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) did hit nine doubles last month, so his power numbers remain high. Owners shouldn't have any doubts about Arenado's elite value.

Rockies | Jorge de la Rosa rolls against Cardinals

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 06:22:55 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa improved to 7-2 with a 3.41 ERA in nine starts against the St. Louis Cardinals since joining the Rockies in 2008. De La Rosa allowed two runs and seven hits over 6 2/3 innings Saturday, Aug. 1.

Fantasy Tip: De La Rosa ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) had allowed six earned runs in each of his two previous games, so FantasyScore owners will need to see a few more quality outings before investing.

Rockies | Drew Stubbs in LF

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 14:51:16 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Drew Stubbs will start in left field and hit seventh in the order Saturday, Aug. 1, against the St. Louis Cardinals and RHP Lance Lynn. OF Brandon Barnes comes out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Stubbs ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has hit four home runs against righties this season, but he is hitting just .208, and he should be avoided against Lynn.

Rockies | Nick Hundley out of lineup

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 14:45:09 -0700

Colorado Rockies C Nick Hundley isn't starting Saturday, Aug. 1, against the St. Louis Cardinals. C Michael McKenry will start at catcher and hit sixth in the lineup against RHP Lance Lynn.

Fantasy Tip: McKenry ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) doesn't have a multi-hit game or an extra-base hit since June 27, and he doesn't need to be considered for FantasyScore purposes.

Rockies | Jose Reyes out of lineup

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 14:35:52 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Jose Reyes isn't in the starting lineup Saturday, Aug. 1, against the St. Louis Cardinals. 2B Daniel Descalso will start at shortstop and hit eighth in the lineup against RHP Lance Lynn, while 2B DJ LeMahieu will start at second base and hit second in the order.

Fantasy Tip: LeMahieu ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has had at least one hit in all but one game since July 3. He doesn't have a home run in that span, but he has hit five doubles, and he has 11 multi-hit games. LeMahieu will continue to be a strong FantasyScore option.

Rockies | John Axford out as closer

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 11:40:46 -0700

Colorado Rockies manager Walt Weiss has removed RP John Axford from the closer's role for the time being. He has allowed runs in five consecutive appearances, blowing four saves during that stretch. The team is expected to use a closer-by-committee approach for the foreseeable future.

Fantasy Tip: It is uncertain if or when Axford will return to ninth-inning duties. For now, RPs Rafael Betancourt, Tommy Kahnle and Justin Miller could see save opportunities for Colorado.

Rockies | Corey Dickerson will go on DL

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 07:41:31 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Corey Dickerson (ribs) will be placed on the 15-day disabled list because of broken ribs he suffered during the game Thursday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Dickerson ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) likely will miss several weeks because of the broken ribs. Drew Stubbs ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) and Brandon Barnes ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) likely will receive some starts while Dickerson is out, but neither is a must-start option in FantasyScore.

Rockies | No Corey Dickerson vs. Cards

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 16:51:37 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Corey Dickerson (ribs) is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 31. OF Brandon Barnes is starting in left field and batting eighth against St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Dickerson ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) can't catch a break, as he exited the game with a rib injury Thursday, July 30. Continue to check back for updates on his health. Barnes ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) would typically project as a nice low-priced target for FantasyScore players, but Wacha ($8,300, 16.6% of cap) is stringy, and you should likely look elsewhere.

Rockies | Colorado to revisit dealing Carlos Gonzalez

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 11:13:15 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez will not be traded before the trade deadline Friday, July 31. The organization is telling teams they will revisit moving Gonzalez in August or during the offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is on an absolute tear right now, and remaining with the Rockies ensures he'll play his home games at hitter-friendly Coors Field. Over his past 189 plate appearances through 47 games, Gonzalez has 32 runs, 11 doubles, 17 home runs, 39 RBI and a .337/.376/.703 slash line. He is worth a look nightly at FantasyScore, but especially when he has a home game or faces a favorable opposing hurler.

Rockies | John Axford implodes

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 21:53:10 -0700

Colorado Rockies RP John Axford blew a save and took the loss against the St. Louis Cardinals Thursday July 30, allowing two runs on two hits and walking three in one third of an inning.

Fantasy Tip: Axford has now allowed at least one run in five straight appearances, blowing four saves and suffering three losses. Don't be surprised if he ends up being relieved of his closer duties, at least temporarily. If you are hunting for saves, Rafael Betancourt or Boone Logan could be the best bets to replace Axford.

Rockies | Corey Dickerson exits early

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 18:52:01 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Corey Dickerson (ribs) exited against the St. Louis Cardinals with a right rib contusion Thursday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: On the plus side, Dickerson ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) didn't aggravate the foot injury that has bothered him this season, but he could still miss a game or two. Check back on his status moving forward before using him at FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Mark Reynolds starting vs. Rockies

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 13:53:20 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals 1B Mark Reynolds is starting at first base and batting seventh against Colorado Rockies SP Chris Rusin Thursday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Reynolds ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has historically fared well against left-handed hurlers, but this season, he is just 16-for-75 with a .709 OPS. You should likely aim higher at FantasyScore, and with Brandon Moss ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) landing with the Cards, Reynolds may be relegated to more of a bench role.

Rockies | Jose Reyes makes COL debut

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 20:55:58 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Jose Reyes made his team debut Wednesday, July 29, against the Chicago Cubs. He went 1-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base. It wasn't all good, as he was also caught stealing.

Fantasy Tip: Reyes ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) could see a slight bump in value in FantasyScore, especially when he makes his home debut at Coors Field and starts playing in Denver regularly.

Rockies | Odds of a Carlos Gonzalez trade

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 11:13:27 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez has a "30-70" chance of being traded at the deadline, according to a source. The Rockies are looking for a better deal for him.

Fantasy Tip: It seems unlikely that the Rockies will deal Car-Go ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) after just trading away Troy Tulowitzki, but it's not out of the realm of possibilities. Gonzalez has picked it up, hitting .385 (30-for-78) with 10 home runs and 23 RBI in the month of July. A trade out of Coors Field would be a setback for his fantasy value, but if he keeps swinging the way he has been, no change of venue can slow him down.
