  1. Fun with roster construction, starring the Colorado Rockies

    Mar 29, 2014, 10:35 PM EDT

    rockies logo

    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…

  3. Does McCann to New York set up a Salty, Red Sox reunion?

    It’s the catcher market that has moved the most quickly in free agency this winter, with Brian McCann becoming the first elite free agent to come to terms, agreeing to a five-year, $85 million deal with the Yankees on Saturday. The other catcher deals: Carlos Ruiz – Phillies (three years, $26 million) Geovany Soto –…

  4. The Rockies have made an offer to Carlos Ruiz

    Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that the Rockies made an offer to Carlos Ruiz some time in the past 48 hours. This was not unexpected given what Renck reported yesterday (and earlier) of the Rockies’ clear interest in Ruiz. There is a lot going on in the free agent catching market, what with…

  5. Rockies willing to offer Carlos Ruiz multiple years

    Carlos Ruiz AP

    Colorado’s interest in free agent catcher Carlos Ruiz has been well-reported and now Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that the Rockies are expected to make him a multi-year contract offer. Renck writes that it’s unclear if the Rockies are willing to go beyond two years on a deal, but for a 35-year-old catcher…

  6. The Rockies will go after Carlos Ruiz

    Nov 4, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Carlos Ruiz AP

    Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that the Rockies will pursue free agent catcher Carlos Ruiz. My guess is that this begins the Wilin Rosario: first baseman experiment in earnest. For Mr. Rosario is a truly gifted hitter and a truly not-very-good defensive catcher. He’s a future Mike Napoli. Except Napoli used to catch…

  7. Michael Cuddyer extends hitting streak to 27 games

    Michael Cuddyer

    Down to his last at-bat in this afternoon’s game against the Giants, Michael Cuddyer extended his club record hitting streak to 27 games and his club record on-base streak to 46 games. With his team down four runs, the Rockies outfielder singled with two outs and the bases empty against Giants reliever Sandy Rosario. He…

  8. Less than a year after signing big extension, Cole Hamels leads NL in losses

    Jun 16, 2013, 10:00 PM EDT

    Cole Hamels

    Despite pitching well throughout most of today’s game against the Rockies, Phillies starter Cole Hamels was once again saddled with a loss, his tenth of the season. Aside from a solo home run by Wilin Rosario in the second, Hamels stayed out of trouble in six innings. In the seventh, frustration with home plate umpire…

    Wilin Rosario

    Rockies 5, Diamondbacks 4: One of four games to require ten frames last night. This from the AP gamer: Reliever Matt Reynolds tried to outthink his former teammate, guess what pitch Wilin Rosario would be looking for and throw the opposite. Only, Rosario knew Reynolds was trying to get inside his head, so … Long story short, Rosario spent the last…

    Country Breakfast

    Royals 9, Phillies 8: Country. Breakfast. Billy Butler drives in seven via a grand slam and a three-run double. The loss is an especially disheartening one for Philly, as they were staked to a 4-0 lead early with their ace on the hill. Cole Hamels was rocked, though, and now stands at 0-2 with a 10.97 ERA…

    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…

    According to Troy Renck of the Denver Post, the Rockies have informed catcher Ramon Hernandez that he will be designated for assignment. As a result, the club will move forward with Yorvit Torrealba as the backup to young Wilin Rosario. Hernandez, 36, batted just .217/.247/.353 with five home runs and a .601 OPS in 52…

    From CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman comes word that the Rockies are talking to multiple MLB teams about a trade involving veteran catcher Ramon Hernandez. Heyman names the Angels, Pirates, Rays and Phillies as potential suitors. The Yankees, at this point, are not believed to have interest in Hernandez. The 36-year-old catcher batted .217/.247/.353 with five…

  16. Rockies would like to trade Ramon Hernandez

    Feb 20, 2013, 3:45 PM EDT

    San Francisco Giants v Colorado Rockies

    Ramon Hernandez getting hurt last season opened the door for Wilin Rosario to become the Rockies’ starting catcher and now Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com indicates that they’d like to trade Hernandez. Colorado is also looking for some rotation depth, but it’s hard to imagine being able to get anything for Hernandez aside from some salary…

    UPDATE: Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that Torrealba has received a minor league contract with a spring training invite.

    Yorvit Torrealba Getty

    According to Thomas Harding of MLB.com, the Rockies have offered a minor league contract to free agent catcher Yorvit Torrealba. Of course, Torrealba previously played with the Rockies from 2006-2009 and was the starting catcher with the club during their World Series run in 2007. The 34-year-old backstop batted just .227/.293/.330 with four home runs,…

    Bryce Harper was named the National League Rookie of the Year this evening by the BBWAA, beating out finalists Wade Miley and Todd Frazier. He received 16 first-place votes compared to 12 for Miley, three for Frazier and one for Wilin Rosario. It was a very close vote, as Harper and Miley were ultimately separated…

  20. 2012 projections review: catcher

Requests of players not listed can be made in the comments. 1. Carlos Santana –…

  22. Rockies hit 96 losses for first time in franchise history

    Sep 30, 2012, 10:34 AM EDT

    pacheco, rosario getty

    With a punchless lineup that featured Jordan Pacheco hitting third and rookie catcher Wilin Rosario batting cleanup, the Rockies fell 3-0 to the Dodgers on Saturday night in Los Angeles. Rockies starter Tyler Chatwood yielded only two earned runs but was pulled after needing 76 pitches to get through four innings. The bullpen fared better…

  23. Rain costs Wilin Rosario his shot at history

    Sep 26, 2012, 1:15 AM EDT

    Wilin Rosario

    Wilin Rosario homered and singled Tuesday against the Cubs, but he wasn’t able to record his fifth straight three-hit game before rain got the game called after 6 1/2 innings. Rosario did have four at-bats, so it’s not as though the rain completely robbed him. However, he likely would have had one more at-bat had…

    White Sox 5, Tigers 4: For want of some leather, the empire was lost. Or something like that.  The Tigers now find themselves three back of the White Sox with no more head-to-head games. This is pretty dire for the Tigers. Braves 7, Marlins 5: Dan Uggla continues to kill his old team. He hit…

  25. Ramon Hernandez out for the season with torn hamstring

    Sep 13, 2012, 11:19 AM EDT

    San Francisco Giants v Colorado Rockies

    Ramon Hernandez‘s rough season came to a painful end Monday night, as the Rockies catcher tore his left hamstring while running to first base on what proved to be a ground-rule double. Hernandez previously missed a big chunk of the season with a hand injury and finished with just 52 games after playing at least…
