In a performance with an overabundance of firsts, the Major League debut of RHP Ryan Castellani was missing one basic element: one hit surrendered. Between an extremely abbreviated season, the cancellation of Minor League Baseball, no expanded September rosters and a clubhouse that has almost entirely returned from 2019, the possibility was slim for even a single debut for the Rockies. In walks Castellani. While the 24-year-old had lost some of his prospect shine the last few year, the 2014 2nd round pick had revitalized his stock after correcting his delivery and returning to full-strength following the removal of bone chips from his elbow. On Saturday night, the typically magical debut became a spellbinding one. By the time he left…

DNVR Rockies beat reporters Drew Creasman and Patrick Lyons battle for supremacy discussing various hot topics pertaining to the inhabitants of 2001 Blake Street as well all the scuttlebutt in-and-around the game of baseball. Following two saves on the road during the first week of the season to help Colorado move to 4-1, closer Wade Davis coughed up another ninth-inning lead to San Diego and found himself in search of the same answers he could not find for all of 2018. To make matters worse, the best reliever in the bullpen may be done for the season as Scott Oberg is on the 45-day injured list with blood clotting in his pitching arm. With a bullpen lacking the veteran presence…

According to a report from Kyle Newman of the Denver Post, three members of the Colorado Rockies have tested positive for COVID-19: Lefty-reliever Phillip Diehl, prospect pitcher Ryan Castellani, and All-Star outfielder Charlie Blackmon. An undisclosed number of players have been working out at Coors Field for the last month and Newman reports that the rest of those in attendance have been tested and had the results come back negative. Also according to the report, only one of the three players has been showing symptoms. There are details beyond that and no speculation on when any of the three could return to the field. This comes just as MLB and the MLBPA have finally reached an agreement to begin extended…

If it was unclear whether or not the Colorado Rockies would score in 2020, Tuesday’s 12-6 drubbing of the Chicago Cubs at Sloan Park in Mesa, AZ washed away any concerns. Scoring 12 runs for the second straight day, Colorado did the most damage to the most veteran pitchers on new manager David Ross’ staff. Starter Jon Lester undoubtedly got in his work; however, the veteran left-hander faced nine Rockies’ batters over one-plus inning than the prescribe two. Even without the full lineup through the first two games of the spring, Colorado has struggled to score in the early going, pushing across only one run combine in each of the opening two innings. That changed quickly with three runs in the…

Phillip Diehl’s first trip to Denver was not an auspicious one. Making his Major League debut against the Chicago Cubs on June 11, the Cincinnati-born left-hander gave up two runs over one inning. The next night, it was an identical pitching line.  Then he nearly caused a brawl after plunking Anthony Rizzo; Chicago decided to retaliate against Nolan Arenado instead. ...

On Saturday, the Rockies traded outfielder Mike Tauchman to the Yankees for pitcher Phillip Diehl. After spending the last two years as part of the 40-man roster and even making the Opening Day roster in 2018, Tauchman, 28, seemed blocked for playing time behind the likes of Charlie Blackmon, David Dahl and Raimel Tapia. Also, it’s becoming more clear that...
