    Fansided: Colorado Rockies: German Marquez and the tale of the infected tooth

    On April 19, as he pitched against the Philadelphia Phillies, Colorado Rockies starting pitcher German Marquez was in no mood to see the Tooth Trot. He has nothing against the characters but the subject matter hit just a little too close for him on that night. After all, he was already dealing with an infected tooth that was causing him severe pain while he was navigating his way through his fifth start of the season.

    Marquez said he first felt pain the night before the start and told media members he decided not to tell manager Bud Black about it, choosing instead to try to tough it out.

    Purple Row: Pat Valaika has fallen for the Rockies, but Charlie Blackmon is rising once again

    The Rockies found themselves in a bit of a conundrum on Monday after Tyler Anderson's short outing led to Chad Bettis being used as long relief in the team's come-from-behind victory. Chad was a primary candidate to start yesterday's game in place of the injured Kyle Freeland, but instead the Rockies had to call up Jeff Hoffman for a spot start. To make room for him, the often criticized and supremely struggling Pat Valaika was optioned to Triple-A.

    In this article, Jake Shapiro takes a deep dive into the reasons behind Valaika's issues at the plate that have plagued him since last year.

    Denver Post: Rockies Mailbag: No rush on deals for Trevor Story or Kyle Freeland, Chris Iannetta update and more


    Denver Post sports writer Patrick Saunders posts his Rockies Mailbag every other week on Tuesdays during the season and once per month during the offseason.

    Pose a Rockies -- or MLB -- related question for the Rockies Mailbag.

    Do you see a Trevor Story or Kyle Freeland contract extension coming any time soon? How are the Rockies going to be able to afford both, and why bring back Story if you have Brendan Rodgers coming up and Ryan McMahon as your second baseman of the future?

  • Denver Post: Nationals use big third inning to beat Jeff Hoffman, Rockies as Colorado's bats go cold



    Learning how to be a starting pitcher at Coors Field is a growth process in dealing with stress tests, as taking the mound at a mile high can produce sideways innings that can undo any hurler.

    Tuesday, it was one of those very growing pains that resulted in Washington's 6-3 win over Colorado in LoDo. The Nationals plated four runs in the third inning off just-recalled right-hander Jeff Hoffman, who was making his season debut in place of an injured Kyle Freeland.

    Just like in its last defeat, to the Phillies on Saturday, Colorado jumped ahead early as Raimel Tapia energized the crowd.

  • Purple Row: Nationals 6, Rockies 3: Missed opportunities and a couple bad innings cost Rockies


    The Colorado Rockies technically left fewer men on base than the Washington Nationals in their 6-3 loss on Wednesday. You can count the three important times the Rockies had men on and a chance to score. But in a game that was close almost throughout, those missed opportunities felt more glaring, especially for a team that is still spotty on offense.

    Called into action for his 2019 debut, the young Hoffman mostly looked just fine. His stuff looked nasty at times, especially when he located his fastball and kept his breaking pitches down.

    Fansided: Colorado Rockies: The troubling stats behind Pat Valaika's struggles

    But for the past two years, Pat Valaika has been stuck in a deep slump. The .817 OPS he carried in 2017 fell to .460 last year. In 30 plate appearances this year for the Colorado Rockies, he has just two hits (one double) in 30 plate appearances.

    That just begins to tell the story. Valaika's -1.6 fWAR since the start of 2018 is the worst in the National League. His wRC+ of zero is the worst of any player with over 150 plate appearances. Even looking at RBI, nobody in baseball with over 150 plate appearances since the start of last season has fewer RBI than Valaika.

    Fansided: Colorado Rockies roster move: Jeff Hoffman recalled, Pat Valaika optioned

    The Colorado Rockies have announced that they have recalled right-handed pitcher Jeff Hoffman from Triple-A Albuquerque to start for the Rockies in Tuesday's game against the Washington Nationals.

    In a corresponding move, the Rockies have optioned infielder Pat Valaika to Albuquerque.

    Hoffman, 26, has yet to be able to prove himself at the major league level for the Rockies and thus far this season in Albuquerque, he has not helped his cause. In three games (two starts), he has pitched to a ghastly 13.89 ERA. In 11 2/3 innings pitched, he has allowed 20 hits, 18 runs (all earned), five home runs, eight walks, and 13 strikeouts.

    Denver Post: Rockies recall Jeff Hoffman from Triple-A Albuquerque to start Tuesday's game against Washington



    To fill the rotation void created by Kyle Freeland's trip to the injured list, the Rockies recalled right-hander Jeff Hoffman from Triple-A Albuquerque. Hoffman will start Tuesday against the Nationals.

    Freeland was originally in line to get the ball at Coors Field, but a blister on the southpaw's left middle finger opened the door for Hoffman to get his first big-league start of 2019.

    Hoffman, 26, is 0-2 with a 13.89 ERA in three appearances (two starts) for the Isotopes this year. He was up-and-down during Cactus League action while attempting to earn a spot in the back end of the rotation with a revamped, high-90s fastball.
