It’s that time of year again for another crop of Colorado Rockies’ prospects to take one step closer towards their Major League debut.

Jackie Robinson won the first Rookie of the Year Award in 1947. Forty years later, it was renamed to honor the Civil Rights trailblazer. While Colorado may have developed many talented All-Stars during their time, starting pitcher Jason Jennings is the only Rockie to ever earn the NL Rookie of the Year Award.

Yet a rookie who debuted in 2021 was the one who proved most valuable to the club throughout the season. This approach of giving big league experience was precisely what fans witnessed during the final weeks with promotions…

For every fan who sat through all 162 games this season for the Colorado Rockies, you should be saluted.

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),…

In an almost repeat performance, Germán Márquez was mighty fine once again to held Colorado stave off a sweep. At the plate, it was Michael Toglia contributing and C.J. Cron slugging.

The Colorado Rockies entered their two-game set with the Texas Rangers before heading out onto the road for 24 of their final 37 games in what is the second-most difficult remaining schedule. Since June 17 when the Rockies swept the visiting San Diego Padres, Colorado has gone 20-12 at home. On Tuesday night, Germán Márquez allowed three runs on two homers before recording an out, but a series of a few more three-run innings saw the Rockies come out ahead 7-6. Colorado get behind again early on Wednesday thanks to six hits and seven runs in the second inning that chased José Ureña in his worst start with the club. Here are 10 of the most important statistics for the…

I just didn’t know where the path may lead…. Now that I’m here, I’m just trying to make a statement that I belong here.” A base hit, followed…
