    Fansided: Colorado Rockies: Bad luck has haunted the Ian Desmond draft pick

    Not only has Ian Desmond not lived up to his big contract, as our friends at Purple Row recently pointed out with this year's struggles, which compound lower-than-expected numbers from past seasons, but let's not forget that, because of that qualifying offer, the Colorado Rockies had to surrender a first-round pick to the Rangers as part of signing Desmond.

    With Desmond's struggles, I decided to look at how the draft pick the Rockies gave up for Desmond is doing in his quest to reach Major League Baseball.

    Using the 29th overall pick in the 2017 draft (as compensation for losing Desmond), the Rangers selected shortstop Chris Seise from West Orange (Fla.

    Denver Post: The Rockies and Padres race for last place in the National League West

    0

    Last year, the Rockies were neck-and-neck with the Diamondbacks and Dodgers at this point in the season in their quest to claim the club's first National League West title.

    This year, the Rockies are competing directly with a divisional opponent down the stretch once again. Only this time, it's a race no team wants to be a part of: The race for last place.

    Battling the Padres for last in the West certainly isn't what fans envisioned for 2019, as the Rockies were coming off consecutive playoff berths for the first time in franchise history with legitimate World Series expectations within the clubhouse.

    Fansided: Colorado Rockies: An unseen but important part of their day

    Gabe Bauer is the director of physical performance for the Colorado Rockies and, along with his team of co-workers, oversees the in-season and offseason workouts for the players. Splitting his time between Denver and Colorado's spring training facility in Scottsdale, Ariz., Bauer has overseen an implementation of a strength and conditioning program that has helped both pitchers and position players succeed and stay healthy at altitude.

    Part of that program includes a postgame workout that is short but critical to staying in optimal health, Bauer said.

    "The majority of our position players prefer to train after the game, even though it's 10-15 minutes," Bauer told me in an exclusive chat.

    Purple Row: 2019 is not Kyle Freeland's year

    Kyle Freeland's groin injury is just one more letdown in the disastrous 2019 season. After being last season's ace, Freeland hit a major rough patch in 2019, struggling through an early injury and a stint in Triple-A. His return was still a bit lackluster, but things started to improve. Right as we were starting to see glimpses of the old Freeland, this new injury got in the way. His injury is concurrent with Jon Gray's, leaving the pitching rotation a little thin. The best we can hope for is that he will recover well from this injury and improve more into the 2020 season.

    Denver Post: Grand Junction Rockies update: Brenton Doyle bounces back from broken cheekbone, three standout bullpen arms and more

    0

    With just a few weeks remaining in the rookie-league season for the Grand Junction Rockies, manager Jake Opitz has seen enough to understand the talent on his roster.

    Five of his players rank in the top 15 in batting average in the Pioneer League, with outfielder Brenton Doyle pacing Grand Junction at .364. He's followed by utilityman Colin Simpson (.333) and infielders Eddy Diaz (.331), Christian Koss (.327) and Julio Carreras (.294).

    Doyle, Colorado's fourth-round pick and the first Division-II player selected in the draft this year, has lived up to the hype coming out of Shepherd University in West Virginia despite missing about three weeks with a broken cheekbone.

    Fansided: Colorado Rockies should move into top five of MLB Power Rankings

    They did this without three of their top pitchers in Jon Gray, Tyler Chatwood and Tyler Anderson. They did this without both of their starting catchers. They did it with talent that hadn't pitched in the majors until a month ago. The Rockies are winning by any means necessary and they are earning the right to be called one of the best teams in baseball.

    Before the series with the Cubs, the Rockies were ranked sixth in the MLB.com Power Rankings. There is no doubt that the Washington Nationals deserve to be number one. The Rockies proved they have a long way to go to compete for the title of best team in the league based on the four game series at the end of April with the Nats.

    Denver Post: Rockies' assessment of their long-term stability at first base begins with Triple-A Albuquerque's Roberto Ramos

    1

    First base has been a black hole for the Rockies since the final seasons of Todd Helton's career. Three different opening day starters at the position in as many years indicate the lack of stability.

    Is Triple-A Albuquerque first baseman Roberto Ramos the man for the long-term job in LoDo?

    Ramos isn't on the Rockies 40-man roster, so he's probably not going to be part of September call-ups when rosters expand. To do so would require Colorado to remove another "bubble" infielder off its full 40-man (i.e. Pat Valaika or Josh Fuentes), and the club normally wouldn't do that just to get a player a few at-bats for a month.

    Denver Post: Rockies' employee tells lesbian couple they can't kiss at Coors Field, prompting an apology from the club

    1

    A Rockies' employee instructed a lesbian couple that they weren't allowed to kiss in the stands. The incident happened during Sunday's game against the Marlins at Coors Field, and has since prompted an apology from the organization to the couple.

    Per the Twitter account of Jaelyn Coates, she and her partner were celebrating their anniversary during Sunday's game when the two shared what she described as a casual kiss. A Coors Field usher, whom Coates said is named Karen, told the couple they can't kiss because the stadium prohibits strong displays of public affection.

    Denver Post: Rockies fall short against Cardinals as bullpen collapses again

    MLB

    0

    ST. LOUIS -- Marcell Ozuna, Paul DeJong and Dexter Fowler each hit two-run homers, and the St. Louis Cardinals came back to beat the Colorado Rockies 6-5 on Thursday night.

    Fowler's 15th home run of the season, off of a 97 mph fastball from Yency Almonte (0-1) in the seventh, capped the comeback. Matt Carpenter set it up by working a walk in an eight-pitch, pinch hitting appearance to lead off the frame.

    Dominic Leone (1-0), who was recalled from Triple-A Memphis before the game, got the win. Giovanny Gallegos and Andrew Miller pitched a scoreless eighth and Carlos Martinez picked up his 15th save in 18 opportunities.

    Purple Row: Cardinals 6, Rockies 5: Bullpen can't hold the lead--again

    MLB

    The Rockies were unable to hold a lead and unable to come back after giving up that lead, losing 6-5 to the Cardinals on Thursday after the start was delayed 52 minutes by rain. Up 5-2 in the sixth, Rockies pitchers gave up two-run home runs in back to back innings to give the Cardinals the lead. That, and the Rockies couldn't manage a hit after the sixth inning, so any comeback was DOA. The Rockies are now 58-70.

    The Cardinals scored in the fourth, sixth, and seventh innings. Each time these runs came via a two-run home run, first from Marcel Ozuna, then Paul DeJong, and finally old friend Dexter Fowler.

    Purple Row: Colorado Rockies game no. 128 thread: German Marquez vs. Miles Mikolas

    Las Cucarachas, the team formerly known as the Rockies (58-69), head to Missouri to take on the St. Louis Cardinals (67-58). The two teams entered the All-Star break in roughly the same position: the Cardinals were 44-44 while the Rockies were 44-45. Since then the team's fortunes have gone in opposite directions, with the Cardinals posting a 26-17 record to launch themselves to a dead heat with the Cubs for first in the NL Central. In the same time period, the Rockies have gone 14-29. Life comes at you fast.

    Tonight German Marquez takes the mound after his dominant five inning performance last Saturday against the Marlins, a start he left early because of cramps.
