  • Rockies' Peter Lambert: Should be ready for spring

    Rockies general manager Bill Schmidt said Friday that Lambert (elbow) is expected to be ready to go for the start of spring training, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

    Between the minors and majors, Lambert has covered just 30.1 innings since the start of the 2020 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in June of that year. Though he dealt with related forearm and elbow issues in 2022, the 25-year-old right-hander looks to have avoided another surgery and should be ready to compete for a back-end rotation spot with the Rockies this spring. However, given that he owns a 7.48 ERA and 1.78 WHIP over 95 innings in the majors and has struggled to stay on the mound in recent years, Lambert is more likely to open the season at Triple-A Albuquerque to shake off the rust before Colorado potentially gives him another look.

  • 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' Connor Seabold: Traded to Colorado

    Seabold was traded from the Red Sox to the Rockies on Tuesday in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

    Seabold made five starts for Boston last season, struggling to a 11.29 ERA and 2.35 WHIP. A .476 BABIP undoubtedly inflated his numbers, but he also gave up five homers in 18.1 innings, something his 29.4 percent groundball rate indicates could be a persistent problem. While there may be fewer obstacles between him and a rotation role in his new home, a move to the league's most hitter-friendly park hardly enhances the righty's fantasy appeal.

  • Rockies' Kris Bryant: Entering spring training healthy

    Bryant (foot) said Sunday he'll entering spring training healthy and with no restrictions, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

    Rockies general manager Bill Schmidt previously noted in December that Bryant was on track to be healthy for the start of spring training, and it appears the 31-year-old's workouts over the past six weeks have gone well enough for that to come to fruition. The first year of Bryant's seven-year, $182 million deal with the Rockies was a trainwreck, as he played in just 42 games before plantar fasciitis ended his campaign in early August.

  • Rockies' Harold Castro: Joins Rockies on minors deal

    Castro signed with Colorado as a non-roster invitee Saturday, Daniel Alvarez-Montes of El Extrabase reports.

    Any hitter who has the opportunity to earn playing time at Coors Field is worth a second look, and that's true for Castro even with the caveat that he's yet to earn a roster spot, let alone regular at-bats. He doesn't hit for much power, homering 15 times in 351 career games, but his .284/.309/.377 lifetime slash line is fine for a utility infielder. A starting role in Colorado may not be on the table, but a good spring could earn him a bench spot, putting him one injury away from consistent playing time.

  • Rockies' Brendan Rodgers: Settles at $2.7 million

    Rodgers signed a one-year, $2.7 million contract with the Rockies on Friday to avoid arbitration, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    It's a substantial raise for Rodgers, who was in his first year of arbitration eligibility. The infielder slashed .266/.325/.408 with 13 home runs in 2022 while winning his first Gold Glove award at second base. Rodgers is still just 26 so it's possible he has some untapped upside.

  • Rockies' Josh Rogers: Lands deal with Rockies

    Rogers signed a minor-league contract with the Rockies on Friday.

    It's unclear whether the southpaw was given an invitation to major-league spring training. Rogers, 28, has posted a 5.42 ERA over 30 appearances including 12 starts at the major-league level. He'll serve as swingman depth for the Rockies.

  • Rockies' Austin Gomber: Gets contract for 2023

    Gomber agreed Wednesday with the Rockies on a one-year, $1.65 million deal to avoid arbitration, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    Gomber split time between the rotation and the bullpen in 2022, logging a 5.56 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 95:34 K:BB in 124.2 innings. With Colorado making no major additions to its pitching staff so far this offseason, Gomber will likely get another chance this spring to audition for a rotation spot, but he'll presumably have a short leash even if he breaks camp with a starting role.

  • Rockies' Fernando Abad: Gets deal from Rox

    Abad agreed Monday with the Rockies on a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to big-league spring training, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    The 37-year-old lefty has appeared in 400 career games at the MLB level, but he spent the 2022 campaign exclusively in the Pacific Coast League. Over 43 innings with the Mariners' Triple-A affiliate in Tacoma, Abad posted a 3.56 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 32:12 K:BB.

  • Rockies' Nick Mears: Claimed by Rockies

    The Rockies claimed Mears off waivers from Texas on Friday.

    After spending just four days with the Rangers organization, Mears is on the move for the second time this offseason. The 26-year-old reliever recorded a 4.80 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in the minors last season, though he was able to throw two scoreless frames in the majors at the very end of the year. The Rockies are starving for depth in their bullpen, so it's very possible Mears begins the 2023 season in the majors.

  • Rockies' Matt Carasiti: Back with Rockies

    Carasiti signed a minor-league contract with the Rockies last month.

    The deal includes an invitation to major-league spring training. Carasiti, 31, split 2022 between Triple-A Sacramento in the Giants organization and the independent league Long Island Ducks. He came up in the Rockies' system and first reached the majors with them back in 2016.

  • Rockies' Nick Garcia: Dealt to Colorado

    Garcia was traded from the Pirates to the Rockies on Sunday in exchange for Connor Joe.

    Garcia, the No. 79 overall pick in 2020, logged a 3.66 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 109 strikeouts in 113 innings at High-A last season. He's got a chance to be a back-of-the-rotation starter or a middle reliever, but he'll have very little fantasy relevance in either role now that he'll eventually call Coors Field home.

  • Rockies' T.J. Zeuch: Lands in Colorado

    Zeuch signed a minor-league contract with the Rockies on Tuesday.

    Zeuch spent time with the Reds and Cardinals in 2022, but he was ultimately cut loose by Cincinnati in September. He'll have the chance to serve as organizational depth with the Rockies and could see some work in the majors in 2023.

  • Rockies' Pierce Johnson: Deal with Colorado official

    Johnson's one-year, $5 million contract with the Rockies was formally announced by the team Tuesday.

    A Denver-area native, Johnson posted a 3.39 ERA and 125:44 K:BB ratio across the last three seasons for the Padres. He is in line to serve as a setup man in front of closer Daniel Bard.

  • Rockies' Pierce Johnson: Heads to Colorado

    Johnson signed a one-year deal with the Rockies on Tuesday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

    Johnson's arrival in Colorado makes him immediately one of the team's most interesting relievers. Since his return from a stint in Japan, he's recorded a 3.39 ERA across three seasons, with his 32.2 percent strikeout rate offsetting an 11.3 percent walk rate. Elbow tendonitis limited him to just 14.1 innings last year, however, and he's heading into his age-32 season, so his health issues are unlikely to suddenly evaporate. Still, his strikeout stuff makes him a good fit for a high-leverage role, and he'll get a good chance to record his first career save next season if healthy. If Daniel Bard struggles or gets hurt, Johnson could find himself pitching in the ninth inning on a regular basis.

  • Rockies' Cole Tucker: Catches on with Colorado

    Tucker agreed Wednesday with the Rockies on a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to big-league spring training, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

    Tucker will move on to the third organization of his career after previous stops with Pittsburgh and Arizona. He elected free agency this offseason after the Diamondbacks previously cast him off their 40-man roster in July. The 26-year-old utility man finished this past season at Triple-A Reno, where he slashed .237/.297/.325 with two home runs and four stolen bases over 128 plate appearances.
