Swipe Left On These Colorado Rockies

Wilin Rosario. Rosario just wasn’t playing any more, with seven at-bats across the last seven games. He needs to be shipped out of town in a trade, but for now, he’s been moved down to AAA Albuquerque after going 1-for-7 across four games in the past week.

Nolan Arenado. Nolan is cold right now, going just 3-for-21 over his last six games with one double, one triple, one home run, and four RBIs. Again, though, Nolan is not striking out, even when he slumps; he has just three strikeouts in that bad week at the plate and continues to be a tough power hitter to strike out for opposing pitchers.

John Axford. Ax has really struggled this week. five hits, three walks, two home runs allowed, five total earned runs allowed and two blown saves in just 2.1 innings over the last seven days. He does have a blown save-win, though. Pitcher wins!

Jorge De La Rosa. De La Rosa had two rough outings this week, which is uncharacteristic of him, throwing a total of 9.2 innings and allowing 12 runs on ten hits and four walks while striking out ten batters. Obviously, this side of the list is not really a place you’d typically see Jorge, so don’t expect him to be here too often down the stretch.

Kyle Kendrick. What do you even say at this point. Seven hits and three walks translated to six runs in five innings and a win against the Reds in the crazy 17-7 game. Look man, I’m sorry, but we can’t do The Kyle Kendrick Experience any more. If you can’t trade him for a player to be named later (or nothing) by July 31, then designate him for assignment on August 1.
