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…

Despite a seven-run seventh inning that would have been the biggest comeback of the season, Colorado can not secure the win on Sunday against the Kansas City Royals. How did the rally take place? And who coughed up runs following Gomber’s solid performance. Plus, we hit the record books hard. Which MLB team hasn’t been to Coors Field since 2014? What ballpark have the Rockies been to since 2008? And who is Colorado’s version of Cal Ripken Jr.?

According to his Baseball Reference page, Colorado Rockies’ catcher Elias Díaz has one nickname: El Maracucho. Born and raised in the northwest region of Venezuela in the state of Zulia, those from the capital city of Maracaibo can often be given this moniker. But one nickname is even more befitting a player like Díaz: The Tank. Throughout parts of eight...

Jorge De La Rosa’s journey to become a LoDo legend took more twists and turns than the Elitch Gardens’ Mind Eraser. Signed by the Arizona Diamondbacks out of high school in Guadalajara, Mexico, the left-hander would flame out after 23 games as a professional before returning to his homeland to pitch for the Monterrey Sultanes of the Mexican League. The Boston Red Sox would purchase his contract and following three successful minor league seasons, he would be dealt back to Arizona in a package of players for Curt Schilling. But before continuing with the organization that gave him his first opportunity, the Diamondbacks traded him three days later in a three-team swap with the club that would christen him as…

Long before Trevor Story (2016-present) occupied shortstop for the Colorado Rockies, there existed an era between that of Walt Weiss (1994-97) and Troy Tulowitzki (2007-15). Neifi Neftali Pérez (1998-2001) signed with Colorado as an international free agent at the age of 18 before his organization ever took the field in 1992. So long ago that he plied his trade in the minor leagues, most of the lower level cities he played are no longer in the business of baseball or operate under a drastically different name: Bend (OR) Rockies, Central Valley (CA) Rockies, New Haven (CT) Ravens, and Colorado Springs (CO) Sky Sox. During his tenure in Denver, Pérez appeared in all 162 games twice in his career (1998 and…

Name the best shortstop to ever wear a Rockies uniform. The names are deep, but the talent is shallow. Anyone who watches baseball and has paid any attention to the Colorado Rockies knows that their is no argument for who has been the best at the shortstop position in the 17 years of Rockies baseball. Troy Tulowitzki.With all due respect...
