    The Rockies may have the most interesting and unintentionally hilarious roster going into Opening Day. They’ll carry 14 pitchers, including two that are injured (Jhoulys Chacin and Boone Logan, who don’t count against the 25-man limit), as well as two catchers, only five infielders, and six (six!) outfielders. The rotation will include Jorge De La…

    So, uh, this is some pretty disturbing news for the Rockies … RHP Jhoulys Chacin will undergo a MRI tomorrow because of right shoulder inflammation. He will be shut down until further notice. — Colorado Rockies (@Rockies) February 23, 2014 Our own Matthew Pouliot estimates that Chacin is the third-most important player on Colorado’s roster,…

    Brett Anderson Getty

    4:32 p.m. EST update: FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal is reporting that the Rockies are acquiring Anderson from the A’s in return for left-hander Drew Pomeranz and right-hander Chris Jensen. Anderson’s addition will likely leave Juan Nicasio and Jordan Lyles battling for one spot in Colorado’s rotation. The A’s still have six starters without him, a total…

    Mets Marlins Baseball

    Mets 7, Marlins 6:  Jordany Valdespin hit a pinch-hit three run homer in the sixth to put the Mets up to stay, breaking their six game losing streak. But Terry Collins is on the hot seat! No he isn’t! Yes he is! She’s my daughter! [slap] My sister! [slap!] My daughter … Nationals 2, Braves 0: The Nats finally…

  8. Rockies’ Juan Nicasio and Edgmer Escalona had a scuffle

    Old time boxer

    Not quite Fisticuffsmanship, but not something you’d expect four days into the season either. From the Denver Post: Edgmer Escalona and Juan Nicasio were separated after an argument quickly escalated during stretching exercises at the Rockies’ workout Thursday at Coors Field. Manager Walt Weiss talked with both pitchers and said he believes the issue is…

    Philadelphia Phillies v Atlanta Braves

    Today was supposed to be the first day that I posted ATH later than I used to. Really: I was going to restore life balance with this one. I watched the Braves game last night but rather than stay up another hour and a half or two hours getting most of the recaps done, I…

  11. Report: Rockies sign Chris Volstad to minor league contract

    Jan 20, 2013, 9:47 PM EDT

    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. It has to be a disappointing outcome for the 26-year-old Volstad, who was originally acquired by the Royals this winter, only to be…

  12. The Rockies are interested in Jair Jurrjens, Derek Lowe and Brandon Webb

    Jan 18, 2013, 10:33 AM EDT

    Jair Jurrjens

    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. All three are gambles, of course. Jurrjens is coming off a horrific season and his…

    Jhoulys Chacin Getty

    We heard late last month that the Rockies were planning to stick with a four-man rotation next year, but it turns out they will have a more conventional approach. Rockies assistant general manager Bill Geivett told Troy Renck of the Denver Post last night that the team will return to a traditional five-man rotation next…

    Jul 16, 2012, 6:37 PM EDT

    Juan Nicasio

    This one isn’t nearly as scary as last year’s, but the Rockies have lost Juan Nicasio to a season-ending injury for the season straight campaign. Nicasio, who missed the final two months of last year with a broken neck and fractured skull after taking a line drive to the head on Aug. 5, will miss…

  15. Juan Nicasio to undergo knee surgery

    Jul 6, 2012, 10:02 PM EDT

    Juan Nicasio Getty

    Juan Nicasio defied the odds this season by returning from a broken neck to make the Rockies’ starting rotation out of spring training. However, things haven’t exactly gone his way until this point. Nicasio struggled to the tune of a disappointing 5.28 ERA through 11 starts before hitting the disabled list early last month with…

  16. Juan Nicasio likely out until at least August with knee injury

    Jul 6, 2012, 11:19 AM EDT

    Juan Nicasio Getty

    Juan Nicasio made it all the way back from a broken neck, but now a knee injury is threatening his season.

    Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish gestures to fans during their MLB American League baseball game in Toronto

    Rangers 4, Blue Jays 1: I think it’s safe to say that, after a couple of rocky starts to begin the year, Yu Darvish is starting to get comfortable. He struck out nine Blue Jays while giving up a single run in seven innings. The homer was by the incredibly hot Edwin Encarnacion, who has…

  19. Stephen Strasburg, David Price are this year’s hardest throwers

    Stephen Strasburg

    Among starting pitchers anyway. Here’s the top 10 for fastball velocity among ERA qualifiers this season (data taken from Fangraphs): 1. Stephen Strasburg (Was) – 95.4 mph 2.

  20. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 9, 2012, 5:50 AM EDT

    Boston Red Sox v Detroit Tigers

    There were only 14 games yesterday. On a Sunday. Because the A’s and Mariners didn’t play thanks to the Japan Series. Look, I don’t care if you want to start the season in Japan, but there should be a federal law against anything less than a full slate of games on a Sunday.  Anyway: Tigers…

    Juan Nicasio Getty

    When Juan Nicasio suffered a fractured C-1 vertebrae as a result of being struck by a line drive last August, his baseball career was suddenly secondary.
