ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg first reported the news. “This was a very tough decision, especially with Darrin being a former player and knowing how much he truly cares about the program,” Karl Dorrell said.

But, like any team, there will always be the extra players that fill out the roster and sometimes disappear into the backrooms of club history because they didn’t spend a long time in Colorado, or simply played a quiet role with the team. Being the reflective individual that I am, let’s take a look at some of the random Rockies that have stuck with me. Melvin Mora (2010) The Rockies decided to add another veteran bat to their roster prior to 2010 in the form of Melvin Mora.

Game 3 of our hypothetical World Series could be summed up by two words: Todd Helton. The Rockies rode to victory on a six-RBI effort from their longtime first baseman who came a triple shy of the cycle in the 8-6 win against the team formerly known as the Cleveland Indians. Josh Fogg muscled his way through five innings allowing five runs on seven hits, but it was enough to hold down the fort and allow the offense to do its work against Jake Westbrook and the Cleveland pitching staff.

Earlier this week it was announced that Major League Baseball and the player’s union reached an agreement to move the tender deadline up from December 2nd to November 30th. This decision relates to the upcoming CBA deadline of December 1st, meaning that players can know their status for the 2022 season prior to the expiration of the current CBA.

I’m thankful for the Rockies being a team that plays games where the ball is in play far more often than usual and defense matters a lot. I’m thankful for the starting rotation who are skilled and fun and re-writing the #Coors narrative. One of the reasons most of MLB can’t understand the Rockies, IMHO, is that they don’t get what the Rockies are trying to do with pitching.

Let’s begin. The BsR Chart We’re going to start off with the stat that best encompasses all aspects of baserunning: BsR.

According to a Nov. 1 story in, general manager Chris Young and president of baseball operations Jon Daniels said Texas plans to be “active and aggressive” in free agency and that it’s gotten the go-ahead from ownership to spend big if necessary. Story harbors no ill will toward the Rockies, but from what I’ve been told he doesn’t believe the franchise is close to being a contender. And, of course, you can’t discount the money factor.

Ezequiel Tovar is 20 years old. The average age of a player in the 2021 Arizona Fall League was nearly four years older than he was. This was not unfamiliar territory for the breakout infielder.

Dennis pitched exclusively for Double-A Hartford in 2021 (96 IP) and worked himself a 5.81 ERA, while his 16 2⁄3 innings in the Fall League featured a lower walk percentage, WHIP and ERA. The Fall League, known as a ‘graduate level’ for minor leaguers, features a lot more refined eyes at the plate than a standard Double-A arm might be accustomed to.

Rockies Free Agents, 2015-16 Offseason Parra played three years for the Rockies and was largely a fan favorite, but his contract can definitely be seen as a bust. The Rockies bought out his 2019 club option for $1.5 million and he signed a minor league deal with the Giants, before becoming a World Series champ and gaining meme-worthy superstardom with the Nationals. Motte’s time with the Rockies was even more forgettable – he was DFA’d before the second year of his deal even began.

Growing up watching Rockies baseball from 2007-2013, one of my favorite things was the goofy commercials the team made. The humorous sketches combined with the hilariously amateur acting skills of the ballplayers made me nostalgic to revisit them and see if they still hold up. Lucky for us, the Rockies have an entire playlist on YouTube dating back to their commercials in the early ‘90s all the way up to their last iterations in 2016.

However, I think there is one trade target who likely won’t come at a premium cost and could be a savvy acquisition if given the chance for more regular playing-time: Nick Gordon A former top-5 draft pick, Nick Gordon seems to be lost in the shuffle with the Minnesota Twins. Minnesota has all but decided Gordon is a utility bench-player for them and – barring an acquisition this off-season – Jorge Polanco seems likely to be the starter at shortstop next season.

The Colorado Rockies’ shortstop has paid the price of playing half his games at Coors Field with good, but not great yearly wRC+ marks (he is at 112 for his career), but is a solid, well-rounded player who is hitting free agency at a very good age: he just turned 29. Story is a two-time All-Star (2018, 2019), a two-time Silver Slugger Award winner (2018, 2019), and was the National League stolen base leader in 2020.

Without a plan of who to take his roster spot, the Rockies are risking losing Gray and they won’t get the heavily cherished draft pick that they will get when Story signs with his next team. So, no deal at the trade deadline for prospects and no compensation pick. Just a departure and a huge hole in the rotation.
