When Gavin Hollowell made the jump from Double-A to the big leagues, he became the first to skip Triple-A for the Colorado Rockies since Ryan Feltner just a year prior.

Michael Toglia is not someone who wastes time introducing himself to fans of the Colorado Rockies. In his first game in front of the Coors Field crowd at the Futures Game in 2021 as part of the MLB All-Star Game festivities, he slugged a home run.  Upon getting promoted to Triple-A Albuquerque on August 9, he promptly swatted seven home runs over 17 games. Toss in a base hit in his MLB debut, first career home run against one the best closers in the game over the last decade and then another homer from the opposite side of the plate. https://twitter.com/KelsWingert/status/1565154831983067137 Now we must add two triples in the same game – in consecutive innings, no less – during Colorado’s…

Colorado had everything going in their favor on Monday night, namely a 5-1 early lead over the slumping Giants who didn’t arrive at their hotel until after 2 a.m. Alas, Chad Kuhl got Coors Field-ed and the seven run from the Rockies’ lineup wasn’t enough. How did it fall apart? What kind of infamous MLB debut did we just witness? And what did Michael Toglia do that only Hall of Famer Larry Walker has accomplished? </p> BUY TICKETS HERE: https://gametime.hnyj8s.net/c/3442941/1443269/10874 If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, crisis counseling and referral services can be accessed by calling 1-800-GAMBLER (1-800-426-2537) (IL/IN/LA/MI/NJ/PA/WV/WY), 1-800-NEXT STEP (AZ), 1-800-522-4700 (CO/NH), 888-789-7777/visit http://ccpg.org/chat (CT), 1-800-BETS OFF (IA), 877-8-HOPENY/text HOPENY (467369) (NY), visit OPGR.org (OR),…

Daniel Bard secures both wins against the Cubs to give him 32 saves for the season. Where does this rank in franchise history? What else is so unique about his great season? Rockies’ rookies also participated in an annual tradition. Where’d they go and who paid the bill? Plus, two intriguing new prospects joined Colorado on the roster.

Before the Colorado Rockies hit the road for a 10-game trip in three cities across 11 days, manager Bud Black was asked about what he sees as most important during the final month of the season. “We’ll have a couple of new players in September,” he said. “We’re hoping it might be a new face or two here to evaluate.” The promotion of 2019 first-round pick Michael Toglia on Tuesday was a great example of this focus. The 24-year-old switch-hitter didn’t wasted any time recording his first big league base hit and home run during Wednesday’s night 3-2 loss.  Currently, the 40-man roster is full. Kris Bryant (plantar fasciitis in left foot) could move from the 15-day IL to the…

The delayed start of Spring Training due to the 99-day lockout means preparation time for the 162-game season has been halved.  Most around the Colorado Rockies camp aren’t overly concerned about the change in timeline, especially manager Bud Black.  “Starting pitching is, for me, the requirement for the six weeks to really feel good about the stamina – the volume...

While it may be premature to think about the next Todd Helton, Troy Tulowitzki or Jon Gray plying his trade at some university, junior college or high school next spring, Vice President and Head of Scouting Bill Schmidt is hard at work with his staff getting eyes on the future Rockies players. “We’ve still got nine months to go,” Schmidt...
