Rockies' Chase Anderson: Decent in no-decision
Anderson did not factor into the decision Thursday, allowing three runs on six hits and a walk over 5.1 innings against the Giants. He struck out seven.
It's the first time through five starts that Anderson has allowed more than two runs, though he did set a season high with seven strikeouts. The veteran right-hander has been solid since he was claimed off waivers from Tampa Bay, pitching to a 2.67 ERA with a 1.07 WHIP and 17:6 K:BB. However, a .222 BABIP against compared to an expected batting average of .273 indicates that Anderson is likely due for some regression.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Pierce Johnson: Closer role to be addressed
Rockies manager Bud Black said after Thursday's 6-4 loss to the Giants that Johnson's status as the primary closer will be "addressed," Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Johnson was called into Thursday's game with the Rockies leading 4-3 in the top of the ninth inning and promptly gave up three earned runs on two hits and two walks while recording only two outs. He's blown two saves in the last week and his season ERA has risen to 7.50. Justin Lawrence, Jake Bird, Brent Suter and Brad Hand are among the other options at closer for Colorado. Daniel Bard could maybe even get another shot.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Nolan Jones: Three more hits Thursday
Jones went 3-for-3 with a double, two RBI and a steal in Thursday's 6-4 loss against San Francisco.
Jones now has four multi-hit games in his last six contests, going 10-for-23 (.435) in that span. He's also logged a steal in three straight games. Since he was recalled from Triple-A on May 26, the 25-year-old Jones has slashed .366/.395/.610 with two home runs, 10 RBI and three runs scored across 43 plate appearances. With C.J. Cron (back) seemingly a ways away from returning, Jones should continue to see regular playing time at first base in Colorado.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' C.J. Cron: No timetable for return
Cron (back) said Thursday that he's still experiencing pain in his lower back, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Cron also acknowledged that there is no timetable for his return to Colorado's active roster. He's been on the injured list since mid-May due to lingering back issues and hasn't responded well to a period of rest and treatment. Nolan Jones is getting a lot of run at first base for the Rockies in Cron's absence, with Mike Moustakas also mixing in.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Charlie Blackmon: Enjoying productive stretch
Blackmon went 1-for-5 with a double and two RBI on Wednesday against the Giants.
Blackmon tallied a pair of RBI with a double in the second inning. He's taken advantage of a stretch of consecutive home games to tally nine RBI and 10 runs scored across his last 12 contests. Across 231 plate appearances, Blackmon is maintaining a wRC+ above 100 for the first time since 2019.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Justin Lawrence: Struggles in multi-inning role
Lawrence (2-3) allowed two earned runs on two hits and two walks while striking out four across two innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Giants.
Lawrence appeared to take over the closer job in Colorado after tallying consecutive saves in the team's series against Kansas City. However, he entered Wednesday's matchup in the seventh inning with the bases loaded and no outs. He got out of that jam impressively without allowing an earned run, but he then struggled in the eighth frame. Lawrence has been excellent all season, so one bad performance isn't likely to shake the team's confidence in him, but he may be headed for a high-leverage role with only a partial share of save chances....

Rockies' Nolan Jones: Productive in loss
Jones went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a stolen base in Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Giants.
Jones provided the Rockies' last run of the game with a sixth-inning solo shot. This was his fourth multi-hit effort in 11 major-league contests this season, and it was also his second game in a row with a steal. The 25-year-old is up to a .316/.333/.553 slash line with two homers, eight RBI and three runs scored through 39 plate appearances. Between first base and the corner outfield, Jones is quickly establishing himself in the Rockies' lineup.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Connor Seabold: Turns in quality start
Seabold allowed two runs on two hits and two walks while striking out four over six-plus innings in a no-decision versus the Giants on Wednesday.
Seabold left in line for the win, but poor outings from relievers Brent Suter and Justin Lawrence squandered the Rockies' lead. This was Seabold's first career quality start, and it certainly seems like he's growing into a starter role after beginning the year in the bullpen. The right-hander has given up three runs, five hits and four walks while striking out nine over his last 11.1 innings, lowering his ERA to 5.10 and his WHIP to 1.41 with a 36:17 K:BB through 47.2 innings this season. He's lined up for a road start versus his former team, the Red Sox, next week.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Brenton Doyle: Absent from lineup
Doyle is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Giants.
Doyle had started each of the last eight contests, but he went just 5-for-29 at the plate over that span. Randal Grichuk will fill in for Doyle in center field Wednesday.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Elias Diaz: Sitting out Wednesday
Diaz is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Giants.
Diaz appears to be receiving a routine day off after he started in seven of the Rockies' previous eight games. Austin Wynns will handle the catching duties for Colorado on Wednesday.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Nolan Jones: Records first steal
Jones went 0-for-4 with one RBI and a stolen base in Tuesday's 10-4 loss to the Giants.
Jones got aboard on a fielder's choice and stole second in the fourth inning. The 25-year-old was held hitless for just the third time in his 10 games this season, and he struck out twice for the fourth game in a row, but he's still making a positive impact. He's batting .294 with a home run, seven RBI, two runs scored and three doubles through 35 plate appearances. Jones continues to fill in at first base while C.J. Cron (back) remains sidelined. Cron won't be back for multiple weeks, so Jones has a chance to run with a starting role between first base and the corner outfield positions.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Jurickson Profar: Four-hit effort in loss
Profar went 4-for-5 with a double, a triple, two RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's 10-4 loss to the Giants.
Profar came a home run short of the cycle in his best game of the year. Prior to Tuesday, he'd opened June just 1-for-16 over four contests. The 30-year-old continues to get regular playing time in left field despite a lackluster .243/.319/.395 slash line through 54 games this season. He's added five home runs, 25 RBI, 26 runs scored, 13 doubles and two triples, but he's yet to attempt a stolen base after logging no fewer than five thefts in each of the last five years....

Rockies' Dinelson Lamet: Takes third loss
Lamet (1-3) allowed three runs on six hits and two walks with four strikeouts over three innings, taking the loss versus the Giants on Tuesday.
Lamet again failed to pitch very deep into the game, and it was a laborious effort that saw him throw just 46 of 83 pitches for strikes. He's lost both of his starts this season, allowing eight runs over six innings, but the Rockies are lacking for better options in the rotation at this time. Over 14 appearances this season, he's logged an awful 12.42 ERA with a 2.46 WHIP and 21:14 K:BB through 16.2 innings. If Lamet gets another start, it would likely be over the weekend at home versus his former team, the Padres.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' C.J. Cron: Week away from activity
Rockies manager Bud Black said Tuesday that Cron (back) is at least a week away from beginning baseball activities, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Cron has been on the shelf since mid-May due to lingering discomfort in his lower back and there remains no timetable for his return to the active roster. Nolan Jones and Elehuris Montero are currently drawing the majority of starts at first base for Colorado, with a few Mike Moustakas sightings sprinkled into the mix.... See More ... See Less
