Rockies' Austin Gomber: Bound for injured list
Gomber (back) will be placed on the 15-day injured list prior to Friday's game in San Francisco, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Gomber has dealt with a nagging back issue lately, and the Rockies have apparently decided to shut him down. The left-hander will be eligible for activation Sept. 22, but it's unclear whether he'll be ready to rejoin the rotation at that time. Reliever Victor Vodnik is taking Gomber's spot on the roster....

Rockies' Austin Gomber: Shut down with back injury
Colorado placed Gomber on the 60-day injured list Friday with lower-back inflammation.
This doesn't sound like an overly serious diagnosis, but Gomber has been battling back issues for a while and the Rockies will go ahead and shut him down for the final three weeks of the 2023 regular season. The 29-year-old left-hander finishes with a 9-9 record, 5.50 ERA, 1.49 WHIP and 87:43 K:BB in 27 starts covering 139 innings, but with stark splits -- he had a respectable 3.68 ERA and 1.37 WHIP on the road, and a 7.05 ERA and 1.59 WHIP at Coors Field....

Rockies' Austin Gomber: Will miss Sunday's start
Gomber (back) won't pitch as scheduled Sunday against the Blue Jays, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Gomber will have his upcoming turn in the rotation skipped after he recently received an injection to address the back soreness he dealt with during his most recent start Monday against Atlanta. Fortunately for Gomber, the Rockies believe he'll avoid a trip to the 15-day injured list and could be ready to go the next time his turn in the rotation comes up. He'll tentatively line up for a return to the bump during next weekend's series in San Francisco.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Austin Gomber: Could be skipped in rotation
Rockies manager Bud Black said Wednesday that Gomber (back) could be skipped on his next turn in the rotation, Patrick Lyons of TheDNVR.com reports.
Gomber made an early exit from his last start Monday versus Atlanta due to back soreness, and Colorado has two off days within the next week that would allow for a temporarily thin starting mix. The 29-year-old southpaw was still experiencing soreness in his back as of Wednesday evening, though it sounds like he should be able to avoid the 15-day IL even if he requires a bit of extra rest....

Rockies' Austin Gomber: Battles back issues again Monday
Gomber's departure in the third inning of his start in Monday's 14-4 loss to Atlanta was due to back soreness, Patrick Lyons of TheDNVR.com reports.
Gomber has been battling back issues for the past month, and it flared up on him Monday, necessitating his removal in the third inning. For what it's worth, the left-hander said after the game that he believes he can avoid the injured list. Heading into Monday, Gomber had been in the midst of a productive run since the All-Star break, turning in a 3.69 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 25:11 K:BB across 46.1 innings over his eight starts. He coughed up two runs on four hits and two walks in 2.2 innings against Atlanta.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Austin Gomber: Exits start early
Gomber was removed from Monday's start against Atlanta due to an undisclosed injury, Patrick Lyons of TheDNVR.com reports.
Gomber received a visit from the team trainer and skipper Bud Black with two outs in the top of the third inning, and he was walked off the mound shortly after. The reason for his departure is unclear at this time, so he should be considered day-to-day until further notice.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Austin Gomber: Quality start wasted
Gomber came away with a no-decision in Wednesday's 6-5 extra-inning loss to the Rays, giving up three runs on seven hits and two walks over six innings. He struck out four.
The southpaw exited the game after 82 pitches (54 strikes) in line for his career-high 10th win of the season, but the Rockies bullpen imploded late. The quality start was Gomber's fifth in eight trips to the mound since the All-Star break, a stretch in which he's posted a 3.69 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 25:11 K:BB through 46.1 innings. He figures to be an extremely risky play in his next outing, which is likely to come at home in Coors Field early next week against Atlanta.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Austin Gomber: Lit up in no-decision
Gomber did not factor into the decision Wednesday, allowing six runs on seven hits and three walks over 5.1 innings against the Diamondbacks. He struck out one.
After giving up a two-run home run to Christian Walker in the opening frame, Gomber seemed to find his groove, as he responded with four shutout innings. However, the lefty fell apart in the sixth, walking three of the first five batters he faced while also surrendering two hits, which would lead to four more runs coming across for Arizona. Despite allowing six runs, Gomber was able to escape with the no-decision, though he's now given up at least six hits in seven straight starts. He's also issued three walks in two of his last three outings, and the six runs were the most he's allowed since June 9 against the Padres.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Austin Gomber: Takes tough loss
Gomber (9-9) allowed two runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out two over five innings to take the loss against the Dodgers on Friday.
Gomber was lucky to escape with only two runs on his line, but it's another decent start for the southpaw despite the poor result. He's given up just five runs (four earned) over his last 23 innings across four starts. Gomber has a 5.33 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 81:36 K:BB through 125 innings over 24 starts this season. He's lined up for a home matchup versus the Diamondbacks next week.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Austin Gomber: Continues strong stretch
Gomber (9-8) allowed six hits and three walks while striking out two over six scoreless innings to earn the win Sunday over the Cardinals.
Gomber has six quality starts over his last seven outings, and he was able to snap a three-start winless streak. He's not racking up many strikeouts over those seven starts, but he's also mostly displayed better control with a 26:6 K:BB. The southpaw trimmed his ERA to 5.40 with a 1.44 WHIP and 79:35 K:BB through 120 innings over 23 starts this season. Gomber is projected for a road start versus the Dodgers in his next outing....

Rockies' Austin Gomber: Pitches well again
Gomber allowed two runs on six hits and two walks while striking out five over six innings in a no-decision during Monday's 4-3 extra-inning win over San Diego.
After an unsteady June, Gomber was able to post a quality start in four of his five outings in July. He allowed 11 runs (10 earned) over 30 innings this month, though he's also gone three starts without a win. The southpaw is at a 5.68 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 77:32 K:BB through 114 innings over 22 starts this season, though his recent pitching has made him one of the Rockies' more reliable starters. Gomber is lined up for a road start in St. Louis over the weekend.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Austin Gomber: Six strong frames
Gomber allowed one unearned run on six hits and no walks while striking out four across six innings Tuesday against the Nationals. He did not factor into the decision.
Gomber executed well in the outing despite the fact the start of the game was delayed nearly 90 minutes due to rain. He started 17 of the 22 batters he faced with a strike while also inducing eight groundball outs. He's now allowed two earned runs or fewer in five of his last six outings, a span during which he's maintained a 3.00 ERA and 1.06 WHIP. He has only 22 strikeouts across 36 innings in that time, but he has also issued only two walks and limited opponents to three home runs.... See More ... See Less

The loss snapped a four-start winning streak for Gomber, who hadn't allowed more than two earned runs in that span. The 29-year-old southpaw now sports a 6.18 ERA with a 1.47 WHIP and 68:30 K:BB across 20 starts (102 innings) this season. Gomber will look to get back in the win column in his next outing, currently scheduled for a road matchup with the Nationals early next week.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Austin Gomber: Remains steady Friday
Gomber (8-7) allowed two runs on six hits and struck out two without walking a batter over six innings to earn the win Friday over the Yankees.

He needed just 78 pitches (56 strikes) to complete six frames in his first start of the second half. He carried a 7.25 ERA through his first 15 outings this season, but Gomber is now at a 6.19 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 63:30 K:BB over 96 frames through 19 starts. The Rockies' rotation is dealing with some injury trouble but will catch a break with Monday and Thursday off next week, allowing the team to go with four starters for a while. Gomber could be called upon for a home start versus the Astros.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Austin Gomber: Another solid start
Gomber (7-7) allowed two earned runs on five hits and no walks while striking out one across six innings to earn the win Friday against the Giants.
Gomber got only four swinging strikes, but he took advantage of spacious Oracle Park and recorded 10 outs via the flyball. He has earned a win in each of his last three outings, combining to allow six earned runs across 18 innings while maintaining an 11:2 K:BB. Even more impressively, two of those starts came at Coors Field, though his inability to generate consistent whiffs will make his results volatile.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Austin Gomber: Solid in Friday's win
Gomber (6-7) earned the win Friday over the Tigers, allowing three runs (two earned) on six hits and a walk while striking out seven over seven innings.
Gomber picked up his second straight win, and this was his second quality start in six June outings. He threw 60 of 84 pitches for strikes in a fairly efficient home start. It's perhaps a sign the southpaw is getting back on track, as he's only has one bad start in his last four. For the season, Gomber's still at a rough 6.64 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 60:30 K:BB through 84 innings over 17 starts. He's lined up for a road start in San Francisco next week.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Austin Gomber: Snaps winless skid
Gomber (5-7) earned the win Sunday over the Angels, allowing two runs on five hits and a walk while striking out three over five innings.
Gomber had gone five starts without a win and lost three straight outings entering Sunday. He was limited to 71 pitches (44 strikes), but the Rockies gave him enough support for the win. It's a step in the right direction for the southpaw, but he still has a 7.01 ERA, 1.61 WHIP and 53:29 K:BB through 77 innings across 16 starts this season. He's projected to start at home again in his next outing, tentatively lined up to be against the Tigers.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Austin Gomber: Tagged with five runs
Gomber (4-7) allowed five runs (four earned) on five hits over 5.1 innings Monday, striking out six and taking a loss against the Reds.
Gomber served up three solo homers and was later charged with two more runs after being removed in the sixth inning. He's been taken deep 13 times over his last eight starts while registering an unsightly 7.68 ERA during that stretch. On the bright side, Gomber now owns a 50:28 K:BB after tying his season high with six punchouts. He'll carry a 7.25 ERA into his next outing, which is currently lined up to be at home against the Angels.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Austin Gomber: Quality start in loss to BoSox
Gomber (4-6) took the loss Wednesday as the Rockies were downed 6-3 by the Red Sox, giving up three runs on six hits and a walk over six-plus innings. He struck out five.
The southpaw was nursing a 2-1 lead heading into the seventh inning, but back-to-back singles chased Gomber from the game, and he had to watch the bullpen melt down behind him. The quality start was his first in over a month and fifth of the season, but he's also had six outings in which he coughed up five runs or more. Unsurprisingly, most of the disasters have come at home -- he sports a 4.60 ERA on the road, but a 9.40 mark at Coors Field. Gomber's next start will likely come early next week in Cincinnati....
