A very special AD FREE(!) edition of the DNVR Rockies Podcast runs through the news of the day for the Colorado Rockies while breaking down the latest free agent signings. How big of a deal is the Wander Franco contract? And how could the Steven Matz signing with the St. Louis Cardinals be a harbinger of things to come for…

Displaying a creative and appropriate use of an opener during a 7-2 victory, San Francisco showed Colorado how strategical ingenuity can be the difference in holding onto the final spot as the National League Wild Card and being an also-ran. Reliever Caleb Barager retired the side in order to start the game before starting pitcher Logan Webb took over in the second inning before leaving in the seventh. Not a bad approach for a club trusting two rookies during a pennant race: one with a 4.58 ERA entering the game and one who had thrown more than 5.1 innings only once in 11 games. It’s been two years since the Tampa Bays employed the use of a reliever to pitch…

While the Dodgers prepared for a bullpen day, the Rockies were caught off guard in a 15-6 drubbing at the hands of the neighborhood bully. Ryan Castellani hoped to earn his first win at home and improve upon a no decision against Los Angeles on September 6 at Chavez Ravine. The 1-2-3 first inning appeared promising until his five-pitch walk to Max Muncy and a 438ft moon shot by Cody Bellinger in the second inning set in rhythm an offensive onslaught by the National League’s best. Gavin Lux snapped an 0-for-14 slump to add his own two-run dinger shortly thereafter to push away any hopes had by Rockies to contend on this evening. Then, Josh Fuentes received his first opportunity…

After losing seven in a row, the Colorado Rockies are finally back in the win column after a hard-fought victory in Arizona over the Diamondbacks. Rookie starting pitcher Ryan Castellani continued to impress and the lineup got just enough offense to feel good after the final out. Player of the Game: Ryan Castellani He was once again excellent, especially considering the circumstances of his surprise call-up this season. He battled with command early, but locked in increasingly as the game went along. The vast majority of his misses were well out of the zone and when it hit his mark, he was inducing ugly swings from Diamondbacks’ hitters. He did make two mistakes in the zone that were blasted for…

In the top of the seventh of the third contest in a four-game set between the Colorado Rockies and the Huston Astros, the home club turned to 28-year-old rookie Ashton Goudeau to make his MLB debut. This was because the game was already spiraling out of their control and Bud Black had almost no other option. Goudeau threw the first...

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…

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…

Add one more name to the list of pitchers looking to crack the Rockies starting rotation in 2020. “After talking amongst ourselves organizationally and with Wes, I think this is the way to go now to try and stretch him out as a starter,” manager Bud Black shared. “He’s motivated to start. Wants to start. His desire is to start.” Wes Parsons, claimed on waivers by Colorado on August 19, may have tossed 19.1 innings in purple last season out of the bullpen, but a majority of his career prior had existed as a pitcher that started the game rather than one more suited to finish it. The undrafted right-handed hurler originally signed with Atlanta out of a Tennessee junior…

It was a beautiful spring afternoon in Tempe Arizona and there was baseball again. The glorious sounds, smells and sights returned. Though not the stakes. And the battles have begun. It is the time of year when those whose spots are not sure thing, fight and scratch and claw for a place on the team. The Colorado Rockies finally got...

On this episode of the BSN Rockies Podcast, Drew Creasman wraps up a good series that might’ve been great for the Rockies in Atlanta. Another rough day for Tyler Anderson brings back questions about what to do with the fifth spot in the rotation, and the offense looks like it might still be looking for the best version of themselves...

DENVER –  On Saturday in Scottsdale, two teams comprised of the brightest stars of tomorrow representing five major league organizations apiece faced off in the late autumn classic known as the Arizona Fall League Championship Game. Starting at third base and batting second for the East Division Champs, the Salt River Rafters, was a player whose name had been unfamiliar to – and overlooked by – many fans at the start of the season. He is a player that has risen to prominence through his unique combination of work ethic and, as some could say, deep-rooted genetic gifts. He is Josh Fuentes and he’s ready. His journey is fit for the best Hollywood scripts, especially if he continues down his…
