    Jhoulys Chacin

    A long-term deal didn’t make a lot of sense after Jhoulys Chacin‘s poor 2012 season, but the right-hander and Rockies did find common ground on a two-year, $6.5 million pact on Saturday. The deal takes care of Chacin’s first two years of arbitration. He’ll again be eligible for arbitration in 2015 before he qualifies for…

    Chris Volstad

    The Denver Post’s Troy Renck reports that the Rockies have signed former first-round pick Chris Volstad to a minor league deal that will net him $1.5 million if he makes the team.

    Troy Renck of the Denver Post says that the Rockies are interested in three pitchers: The Rockies have interest in Jair Jurrjens, who plans to play in the WBC, and Derek Lowe and Brandon Webb, who’s expected to throw for scouts soon.

    That’s gotta hurt. For the second straight day the Braves beat the Rockies 1-0.  For the second straight day, the game’s lone run was unearned. Here it came on an error by pitcher Jhoulys Chacin. And not just some ordinary error. Juan Francisco was on third base. Catcher Wilin Rosario threw the ball back to Chacin after a pitch and Chacin…

    Nationals' Strasburg pitches in the rain during the second inning of their MLB game against Braves in Washington

    Nationals 4, Braves 1: I have been arguing against a Stephen Strasburg shutdown for a while now, but allow me to say that if those dudes are really gonna do that, I wish they would have done it before last night. Strasburg struck out ten in six innings, allowing a single run and winning his…

  14. The end appears near for Jamie Moyer in Colorado

    May 27, 2012, 3:19 PM EST

    Jamie Moyer

    One wonders how much longer the Rockies will stick with Jamie Moyer after the 49-year-old left-hander gave up four homers and seven runs in five innings Sunday in a 7-5 loss to the Reds. It was the fifth time in his last six starts that Moyer failed to complete six innings. Aided by a weak…

    UPDATE: Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that Chacin was diagnosed with an injury to his pectoral minor muscle involving a nerve entrapment.

    Feb 10, 2012, 9:20 AM EST
