  • Rockies' Ezequiel Tovar: Logs stolen base

    Tovar went 1-for-2 with two walks, a stolen base and two runs scored in Saturday's 10-7 win over the Mets.

    Tovar has hit safely in seven of his last eight games, though this was his first steal in that span. While his bat has been solid, he has just one RBI and four runs scored in that stretch, though it's tough to make an impact from the bottom of the lineup. The shortstop is slashing a modest .226/.274/.357 with two steals, three home runs, 20 RBI and 23 runs scored through 49 contests, and a 28.5 percent strikeout rate isn't helping his cause.

  • Rockies' Ezequiel Tovar: Game-winning hit

    Tovar went 2-for-4 with an RBI, a run scored and a walk Thursday against the Marlins.

    Tovar was the hero of Thursday's win, delivering a walk-off single in the ninth inning. He is in the midst of a six-game hitting streak, though he has only one multi-hit game to go along with one RBI and one run scored in that span. Tovar has shown promise sporadically during his first full season in the majors, though he has only a 55 wRC+ and .275 wOBA through the first two months.

  • Rockies' Ezequiel Tovar: Smacks third homer

    Tovar went 1-for-3 with a solo home run Tuesday against the Reds.

    Tovar tallied the Rockies' lone run of the game with a solo home run off Brandon Williamson in the sixth inning. After showing signs of life at the plate, Tovar has gone only 3-for-28 with four RBI and three runs scored while striking out at a 41.4 percent clip across his last eight games. He's had an inconsistent start to his first full season in the majors, hitting only .216/.259/.360 across 147 plate appearances.

  • Rockies' Ezequiel Tovar: Takes seat Wednesday

    Tovar is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Reds, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

    The slick-fielding shortstop will take a seat for the first time since April 21, ending a stretch of 22 straight starts during which he produced a .720 OPS. Alan Trejo will check in at shortstop for the rookie.

  • Rockies' Ezequiel Tovar: Swipes first bag

    Tovar went 0-for-4 with a walk, a run and a stolen base Wednesday against the Pirates.

    Tovar finished Colorado's series at Pittsburgh 0-for-11, but he still found ways to be productive. On Wednesday, he drew a walk to start the fourth inning before stealing second base and coming around to score. Tovar's overall numbers are still poor, but he's gone 14-for-54 with two home runs, 11 RBI, and 12 runs scored across his last 15 games.

  • Rockies' Ezequiel Tovar: Launches second homer

    Tovar went 3-for-4 with a double, a two-run home run and a second run scored in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Mets.

    His sixth-inning shot off Stephen Nogosek capped the scoring for the Rockies on the day. Tovar has found a groove at the plate after a tough first few weeks of 2023, and over his last 12 games the 21-year-old shortstop is batting .333 (14-for-42) with four doubles, a triple and both his homers on the year, along with nine runs and nine RBI.

  • Rockies' Ezequiel Tovar: Seven-game hitting streak

    Tovar went 1-for-3 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored Thursday against the Brewers.

    Tovar delivered a two-RBI double in the seventh inning to start a late rally for the Rockies. The performance extended his hitting streak to seven games, during which he has gone 8-for-24 with a home run, four RBI and five runs scored in that span. He has benefitted from a lengthy homestand -- only one of those seven games has been on the road -- but he has still quietly improved his season-long line in recent weeks.

  • Rockies' Ezequiel Tovar: Slugs first homer

    Tovar went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Brewers.

    Tovar cranked a Freddy Peralta fastball 460 feet in the third inning to start the scoring. It was the shortstop's first home run of the season and second of his career. The 21-year-old is off to a slow start, slashing .217/.265/.337. Adding to the disappointment, Tovar has yet to pick up his first career big-league steal after swiping 74 bags across four seasons in the minors.

  • Rockies' Ezequiel Tovar: Glimpses of improvement

    Tovar went 1-for-4 with two RBI on Monday against the Guardians.

    Tovar delivered a two-RBI single in the fourth inning to put the Rockies up 3-0. That was his lone hit of the game, but he did not strike out for the first time in his last five starts. Tovar is riding a very modest two-game hitting streak, but that's a positive sign after he went just 2-for-24 with a 34.5 percent strikeout rate across his prior eight games. Overall, he's hitting .194 with seven RBI and four extra-base hits across 77 plate appearances.

  • Rockies' Ezequiel Tovar: Spot not at risk despite slump

    Tovar is not at risk of being demoted despite his poor start to the season, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

    An 0-for-3 day Saturday against the Phillies dropped Tovar's slash line to .172/.232/.234 through 19 games. The 21-year-old looks overmatched, and with just five career Triple-A games under his belt, there's certainly a case to be made that he needs more time in the minors. The Rockies seemingly don't intend to make a move any time soon, however, instead letting him work through his slump at the big-league level.

  • Rockies' Ezequiel Tovar: Not starting Friday

    Tovar isn't in the Rockies' lineup Friday against the Phillies.

    Tovar holds just a .488 OPS on the year, putting him at risk of losing his everyday role at shortstop. Alan Trejo will start in Tovar's place Friday and bat ninth.

  • Rockies' Ezequiel Tovar: Another hitless performance

    Tovar went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts Thursday against the Phillies.

    Tovar turned in his fifth hitless performance in his last seven games, and he's also struck out multiple times in three of those contests. He's only been out of the lineup twice in 20 matchups this season, so the Rockies are giving him time to work through his struggles at the plate. Particularly given Tovar's lack of experience in the upper minors, it's not overly surprising that he's had to make a significant adjustment to major-league pitching. Even so, he'll have to improve on his .180/.242/.246 line to maintain an everyday role for the rest of the campaign.

  • Rockies' Ezequiel Tovar: Three-game hitting streak

    Tovar went 1-for-4 with a double, an RBI and a run scored Friday against the Nationals.

    Tovar came to the plate with runners on first and second in the seventh inning and he delivered an RBI double before also coming around to score in the same frame. He's enjoyed the team's first homestand of the season and is now in the midst of a modest three-game hitting streak. Despite his performance picking up of late, Tovar still has only five hits across 25 at-bats to start the season, and he's also struck out nine times.

  • Rockies' Ezequiel Tovar: Gets Monday off

    Tovar is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Dodgers, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

    Tovar secured the Rockies' everyday shortstop job coming out of spring training and started in all four games of the team's season-opening series in San Diego, going 2-for-15 with no walks and six strikeouts in those contests. Despite Tovar's underwhelming series against the Padres, he should still have a decent amount of leash in a regular role. Alan Trejo will spell Tovar in Monday's contest, however.
