Rockies | Jose Reyes decision coming soon

Thu, 05 May 2016 15:03:26 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Jose Reyes' impending suspension will be known shortly. Commissioner Rob Manfred said he expects to make a decision "soon" and that he's just waiting for one last piece of information from the union.

Fantasy Tip: No matter how long the suspension is, Reyes' days of relevance in fantasy baseball already appear over, as Trevor Story has absolutely taken off at shortstop for the Rockies. The only way the former NL batting champion could contribute regularly to fantasy teams again is if he were to resurface elsewhere, which seems highly unlikely to happen at some point this season. If you took the risk of selecting him on draft day, it's looking like a wasted pick.

Rockies | Brendan Rogers raking in minors

Thu, 05 May 2016 14:42:43 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Brendan Rogers, Colorado's No. 1 prospect, is hitting .364/.440/.636 for Class A Asheville this year and has reached base safely in 22 of 23 games.

Fantasy Tip: Rogers, just 19, is obviously at least a few years from showing his face in the big leagues, especially the way Trevor Story has developed in his first taste of MLB action. Like Story, Rogers also boasts raw power and great bat speed, and he also has good plate discipline. For now, he's just a guy to watch in keeper and dynasty formats.

Rockies | Tyler Chatwood using changeup more

Thu, 05 May 2016 11:18:43 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Chatwood lowered his ERA on the year to 2.15 with eight shutout innings against the San Diego Padres Wednesday, May 4, and opponents are hitting .239 off of him. He's throwing his changeup more often to ease the stress on his elbow, which has twice been reconstructed with Tommy John surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Chatwood essentially missed two years because of his second elbow reconstruction, so it's hard to say how durable he'll be for the Rockies throughout the year. The early returns are very promising, though, and he should be owned in deep mixed and NL-only leagues at this point. Just be careful with half of his starts coming at hitter-friendly Coors Field.

Rockies | Tyler Chatwood impresses again

Wed, 04 May 2016 15:57:41 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Chatwood was phenomenal in his start Wednesday, May 4, against the San Diego Padres. He tossed eight shutout innings of three-hit ball, striking out seven and walking only one, en route to picking up the victory.

Fantasy Tip: Although it can be tough trusting a starting pitcher from the Rockies regularly, it might be time to start taking Chatwood seriously. The 26-year-old is now 4-2 with a dazzling 2.15 ERA, and he's allowed one run or less in four of his six starts. For those that think this might be a fluke, also consider that before going down with Tommy John surgery, Chatwood actually posted respectable numbers in his last full season with the club back in 2013.

Rockies | Three Rockies regulars sitting

Wed, 04 May 2016 11:05:15 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Gerardo Parra, 2B DJ LeMahieu and C Nick Hundley are out of the lineup Wednesday, May 4. OF Ryan Raburn is hitting sixth, 2B Cristhian Adames is hitting ninth and C Tony Wolters hits seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Raburn has an impressive .361-4-8 line in 36 at-bats. He's certainly worth the low-end flyer against Cesar Vargas. Adames is hitting .148 and isn't worth the stream in Petco Park. Wolters hasn't hit much since his first couple of games and isn't worth the start.

Rockies | Jon Gray fans 11 in loss

Mon, 02 May 2016 23:07:51 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Jon Gray struck out 11 batters in his loss to the San Diego Padres Monday, May 2. He allowed two runs on four hits and a walk in six innings.

Fantasy Tip: Gray now has two 10-strikeout games out of his three starts. His ERA is just a ballooned 7.98 on the season. He's worth stashing to see if he can harness that ERA.

Rockies | Nolan Arenado goes deep again

Sun, 01 May 2016 18:28:11 -0700

Colorado Rockies 3B Nolan Arenado hit his major league-leading 11th home run Sunday, May 1, finishing 2-for-4 with three RBI and two runs scored in a 6-3 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Arenado currently leads the majors in homers and RBI, and he is more than justifying his status as a first-round pick in fantasy drafts.

Rockies | Mark Reynolds, Nick Hundley sitting out

Sun, 01 May 2016 12:17:05 -0700

Colorado Rockies 1B Mark Reynolds and C Nick Hundley are not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Shelby Miller Sunday, May 1. 1B Ben Paulsen will start at first base and is batting seventh, while C Tony Wolters will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Paulsen has been a bit inconsistent at the plate recently but is still hitting .326 this season and could be a sleeper option in daily fantasy leagues. Wolters has struggled in his limited playing time this season and should be avoided in most leagues.

Rockies | Three more RBI for Trevor Story

Sun, 01 May 2016 05:14:25 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Trevor Story went 2-for-5 with two runs, a double, a triple and three RBI during the Rockies' 5-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks Saturday, April 30.

Fantasy Tip: Settle for the strikeouts (league-leading 37) and underwhelming batting average (.261) because Story is pounding the counting stats. Through 22 games, the rookie has 19 runs, 10 home runs and 20 RBI. Playing half his games at hitter-friendly Coors Field is a nice safety net to help avoid any prolonged slumps, too.

Rockies | Nick Hundley drives in three

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 05:58:32 -0700

Colorado Rockies C Nick Hundley went 2-for-5 with one home run and three RBI against the Arizona Diamondbacks Friday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Hundley has gone 5-for-14 with one home run and three RBI since returning from the disabled list. Hundley should be a starting option in two-catcher leagues and could also be used in some deeper mixed leagues.

Rockies | Nolan Arenado homers Friday

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 05:53:05 -0700

Colorado Rockies 3B Nolan Arenado went 1-for-4 with one home run and one RBI against the Arizona Diamondbacks Friday, April 29. Arenado is tied for the major league lead with 10 home runs.

Fantasy Tip: Arenado is one of the best third baseman in the league and has been producing at the plate. Arenado should be an everyday starting option for fantasy owners.

Rockies | Trevor Story ties MLB record

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 05:46:17 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Trevor Story went 2-for-4 with one home run and two RBI against the Arizona Diamondbacks Friday, April 29. His 10 home runs in April has tied an MLB record for most home runs in April by a rookie.

Fantasy Tip: Story has slowed down on his home run pace but has hit one in each of the last two games. Story still struggles with strikeouts but should be a starter in all leagues for the time being.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez out vs. lefty

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 15:25:13 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks left-handed SP Robbie Ray Friday, April 29. OF Ryan Raburn draws into the lineup in left field and is hitting fifth in the order. 1B Mark Reynolds is batting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Raburn is a notorious lefty killer and is a sound investment in DFS action this evening. Reynolds is coming off a three-hit, one-homer performance Wednesday and gains additional daily value in the cleanup spot in a potent offense. He's also worth a sleeper selection against Ray.

Rockies | Charlie Blackmon activated, in lineup

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 15:23:48 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon (toe) was activated from the 15-day disabled list and is back in the leadoff spot against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Robbie Ray Friday, April 29. As a result, OF Gerardo Parra drops back down to the No. 6 spot in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: You'll want to return Blackmon to starting lineups in all traditional leagues. Against a lefty in his first game back, though, you'll likely want to avoid him in daily formats and allow him to shake off some rust. Parra's daily value drops slightly with the move out of the leadoff spot, but he should remain a solid starter in all other fantasy formats.

Rockies | Trevor Story with day off

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 10:01:38 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Trevor Story is out of the lineup Thursday, April 28, with SS Cristhian Adames hitting second. C Tony Wolters is also hitting eighth with C Nick Hundley sitting out.

Fantasy Tip: Since Hundley returned, he has faced two lefties, while Wolters has been in against two righties. Wolters opened eyes with three quick steals, but he has done little since with a .156-0-3 line on the year. It's worth watching in the coming days, but pass on Wolters. Adames is 4-for-24 (.167) on the year and isn't a real solid option against Juan Nicasio.
