Rockies' Ryan Rolison: Looks healthy for spring
Rolison (undisclosed) was spotted throwing off flat ground at Rockies camp Wednesday, Patrick Lyons of TheDNVR.com reports.
Rolison didn't pitch after June 2 last season due to an unspecified injury, with the extended absence once again costing the 26-year-old some meaningful development time after his entire 2022 season was wiped out by shoulder surgery. Though Rolison looks to be healthy entering camp, he was moved off the 40-man roster in the offseason and will likely need to pitch well for an extended period at Triple-A Albuquerque before he gets the chance to make his MLB debut....

Rockies' Ryan Rolison: Outrighted to Albuquerque
The Rockies sent Rolison (undisclosed) outright to Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday.
Rolison missed nearly all of last season due to injury, pitching just five innings with Albuquerque across two starts and giving up seven runs in the process. The 26-year-old southpaw hasn't pitched a full season since 2021, and he'll likely need to improve upon his 6.57 ERA at Triple-A before reclaiming a spot on Colorado's 40-man roster.... See More ...

Rockies' Ryan Rolison: Moved to 60-day IL
Rolison (undisclosed) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Friday.
Rolison has been on the injured list in Triple-A since June 4 and now finds himself on the 60-day IL for the second time this season. The move will keep him out of action in the minors through the beginning of August and opens a 40-man spot for Tommy Doyle, who was selected from Albuquerque on Friday.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ryan Rolison: Back on injured list
Rolison has been on the 7-day injured list at Triple-A Albuquerque since June 4 due to an unspecified issue.
While recovering from shoulder surgery he underwent last summer, Rolison opened the season on the Rockies' 60-day IL and didn't begin a rehab assignment in the minors until mid-May. He was ultimately optioned to Albuquerque after being reinstated from the IL, but he made just four total appearances for the Triple-A affiliate before landing back on the shelf. It's unclear if Rolison suffered a setback with his surgically repaired shoulder or if he's dealing with an unrelated issue.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ryan Rolison: Activated, sent to Triple-A
The Rockies reinstated Rolison (shoulder) from the 60-day injured list and optioned him to Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday.
Though Rolison still had time left in his 30-day rehab window, the southpaw didn't have a spot in the big-league rotation waiting for him, so the Rockies opted to activate him early. He'll now continue to make regular starts out of the Albuquerque rotation and work to hone his command and control after missing the entire 2022 season while recovering from surgery to repair the labrum of his left shoulder. Over his first three rehab outings between Albuquerque and Single-A Fresno, Rolison allowed nine runs on 12 hits and six walks while striking out nine in 10 innings.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ryan Rolison: Starts up rehab assignment
Rolison (shoulder) began a rehab assignment with Single-A Fresno on Tuesday and tossed three scoreless innings, striking out three while allowing two hits and one walk.
Rolison missed the entire 2022 season and eventually underwent surgery last June to repair the labrum in his left shoulder, but he looks to be just a few weeks away from returning from the 60-day injured list. Heading into the season, the Rockies may have initially been planning to option Rolison to Triple-A Albuquerque at the conclusion of his 30-day rehab window, but long-term elbow injuries to German Marquez and Antonio Senzatela have already tested the organization's thin pitching depth. If Rolison continues to fare reasonably well when he eventually moves his rehab assignment to higher-level affiliate, he could have a spot in the big-league rotation waiting for him once he's activated....

Rockies' Ryan Rolison: Throws side session
Rockies manager Bud Black said Wednesday that Rolison (shoulder) recently completed a bullpen session without incident, Patrick Lyons of TheDNVR.com reports.
Rolison is currently on the 60-day injured list while recovering from the left shoulder surgery he underwent last June. The southpaw will likely begin to face hitters soon, but he's still probably at least a few weeks away from heading out on a minor-league rehab assignment.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ryan Rolison: Placed on 60-day IL
Rolison (shoulder) was placed on the 60-day injured list by the Rockies on Saturday.
Rolison underwent left shoulder surgery last June, and isn't expected to be ready until the summer months. The first-round pick from 2018 could be a rotation option for Colorado by the end of 2023.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ryan Rolison: Throws off mound Friday
Rolison (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Friday, Danielle Allentuck of the Denver Gazette reports.
It's an important milestone for Rolison, who had left shoulder surgery last June. The 2018 first-round pick is expected to be game-ready around late May or early June, but it will probably be after the All-Star break before he might be considered for his first big-league promotion....

Rockies' Ryan Rolison: On track for spring training
Rockies general manager Bill Schmidt said Friday that Rolison (shoulder) is expected to be ready to go for the start of spring training, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
The 25-year-old Rolison didn't pitch in 2022 after ultimately undergoing season-ending left shoulder surgery in mid-June, but he appears to be progressing as anticipated in his rehab and recovery program and looks set to head into spring training with few restrictions, if any. Rolison should get the chance to battle for a back-end spot in the Colorado rotation this spring, but his lack of prior MLB experience in addition to the fact that he's coming off an injury means he's more likely to begin the campaign as a starter at Triple-A Albuquerque....

Rockies' Ryan Rolison: Shoulder surgery completed
Rolison announced Wednesday via his personal Twitter account that he underwent surgery on his left shoulder in Los Angeles.
His surgery was overseen by renowned orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Neal ElAttrache and apparently went according to plan. Rolison confirmed he'll miss the rest of the 2022 season but noted in his post that he expects to be ready to go for the start of the 2023 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ryan Rolison: Slated for surgery
Rolison (shoulder) will undergo surgery in the coming weeks, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.
Rolison had been sidelined with a shoulder injury since the end of spring training, and the Rockies said this week that he hadn't made as much progress in his recovery as the team had hoped. After visiting with a specialist, the southpaw will undergo a procedure that will likely force him to miss the rest of the season. Rolison hasn't yet made his major-league debut, but it's possible that he'll join Colorado in 2023 as long as he's back to full health.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ryan Rolison: Progressing slower than expected
Rolison (shoulder) hasn't made as much progress in his recovery as the Rockies had hoped, so he'll visit a specialist next week, Danielle Allentuck of The Denver Gazette reports.
Rolison was placed on the 60-day injured list with a left shoulder strain at the end of spring training, but his injury hasn't improved much over the last several weeks. A better idea of the left-hander's status will likely come into focus after he's examined by a specialist.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ryan Rolison: Lands on 60-day IL
Rolison was placed on the 60-day injured list Monday with a left shoulder strain.
Rolison has been shut down from throwing for two weeks after receiving two anti-inflammatory shots in his left shoulder, and he'll now be sidelined for at least the first two months of the season. The 24-year-old has yet to make his big-league debut and is likely to pitch at Triple-A Albuquerque once healthy.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ryan Rolison: Facing two-week shutdown
Rolison has received two anti-inflammatory shots in his left shoulder and will be shut down for two weeks, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Rolison was reassigned to minor-league camp in late March, and he was apparently bothered by his shoulder injury throughout spring training. Although he initially thought that he'd be able to play through the injury, he'll take time to recover since his velocity and results were impacted. The southpaw will likely be placed on the 60-day injured list since he'll require time to build up following his shutdown.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ryan Rolison: Goes to MiLB camp
The Rockies optioned Rolison to Triple-A Albuquerque on Thursday.
Rolison was one of four players on the Rockies' 40-man roster that was dispatched to the minors Thursday, leaving Colorado with 47 players remaining at MLB camp. The 24-year-old lefty will likely step into the rotation at Albuquerque, with whom he made 10 starts in 2021. He covered 45.2 innings in those outings, pitching to a 5.91 ERA and 1.48 WHIP....

Rockies' Ryan Rolison: Shielded from Rule 5 draft
Rolison was added to the Rockies' 40-man roster on Friday.
Rolison will no longer be available for selection in the Rule 5 draft. He'll have a chance to make his big-league debut at some point next season, as he's already made 10 Triple-A starts, but his 5.91 ERA there means he still has to conquer that level before earning his next opportunity....

Rockies' Ryan Rolison: Cleared to return at Triple-A
Rolison (hand) returned from Triple-A Albuquerque's 7-day injured list Friday and gave up five runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out four over five innings in the affiliate's 5-1 loss.
Rolison was sidelined for just over nine weeks with a fractured left hand before he began a three-start rehab assignment in the lower levels of the minors earlier this month. After getting sufficient time to build up, Rolison slotted back into the Albuquerque rotation, where he's expected to remain for the duration of the season. Over four starts at Albuquerque this season, Rolison has posted a 5.71 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 19:4 K:BB in 17.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ryan Rolison: Rehab heads to High-A
Rolison (hand) made the third start of his rehab assignment at High-A Spokane on Saturday, tossing five innings and giving up two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out three.
After making the first of his two rehab starts in the rookie-level Arizona Complex League, Rolison was given a tougher assignment over the weekend and acquitted himself well. Rolison, who is on the mend from a fractured left hand, built up to 70 pitches Saturday. He could be cleared to return from the 7-day injured list to make his next start with Triple-A Albuquerque.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Ryan Rolison: Rehabbing in ACL
Rolison (hand) began a rehab assignment at the Rockies' rookie-level Arizona Complex League affiliate Aug. 12 and has covered 6.1 innings between his first two outings, giving up seven runs (five earned) on 10 hits and two walks while striking out nine.
Rolison is on the comeback trail after a fractured left hand kept him out of competitive action for just over nine weeks. He covered four innings in his most recent rehab start Monday, so he may only need one or two more turns in the lower levels of the minors before being activated from Triple-A Albuquerque's 7-day injured list....
